Fyodor Dostoyevsky is a titanic among the world´s great authors, and The Brothers Karamazov is often hailed as his finest novel. A masterpiece on many levels, it transcends the boundaries of a gripping murder mystery to become a moving account of the battle between love and hate, faith and despair, compassion and cruelty, good and evil.

Once upon a time, a teenaged Kate Winslet (The Reader, Titanic, Revolutionary Road) received a gift that would leave a lasting impression: a copy of Emile Zola’s classic Thérèse Raquin. Six Academy Award nominations and one Best Actress award later, she steps behind the microphone to perform this haunting classic of passion and disaster. Thérèse Raquin is the story of a young woman forced into an unhappy marriage to her dull, sickly cousin and smothered by her overbearing aunt. When her husband’s childhood friend enters her life, it leads to a torrid affair that sets her spirit free for the first time, but with shattering consequences. Steeped in the atmosphere of 19th-century France and with a darkly rich foreboding, it is a story that brings out the best of its narrator’s incomparable talents.´´It is challenging, and it’s a heck of a lot of fun as well”, said Ms. Winslet of the recording experience. ´´As a listener, being able to tune out and be taken into another world, an atmosphere, an environment that is being created entirely for you by somebody else’s voice is really a wonderful, magical thing.” 1.

Robertson´s story, written 14 years before the historic event it presaged, parallels the descriptions and fate of the Titanic with psychic precision. His tale, however, doesn´t end with the passengers´ watery demise; rather, it chronicles the detective work instigated by members of Lloyd´s of London, embroiling Scotland Yard, when word comes in that the heavily insured ship has sunk to the bottom of the ocean. What ensues is a battle between insurers and attorneys, in London and New York, and a survivor who has rescued another passenger´s daughter. Robertson draws upon his own rich and wild experience as a seaman on the Atlantic to weave a narrative interspersed with colloquial dialogue, bringing to life the conflicts between the rich merchants who rely upon shipping and the sailing men relied upon to chart their courses. 1.

Representing the work of more than 30 poets, and extending from Thomas Hardy´s lines on the loss of Titanic to the present-day concerns of Seamus Heaney, The Best of 20th-Century Poetry offers an extensive survey of English poetry of the last hundred years. It includes established favourites like T. S. Eliot´s ´´The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock´´, W. H. Auden´s ´´Stop all the Clocks´´ and ´´In Memory of W B Yeats´´, and Dylan Thomas´s ´´Fern Hill´´, together with a generous selection of poetry from both world wars. Embracing a wide range of styles and moods, this new selection captures the continuing richness of the English poetic tradition.

Originally published in 1845 as a sequel to The Three Musketeers, Twenty Years After is a supreme creation of suspense and heroic adventure. Two decades have passed since the three musketeers triumphed over Cardinal Richelieu and Milady. Time has weakened their resolve and dispersed their loyalties. But treasons and stratagems still cry out for justice: civil war endangers the throne of France, while in England, Cromwell threatens to send Charles I to the scaffold. Dumas brings his immortal quartet out of retirement to cross swords with time, the malevolence of men, and the forces of history. But their greatest test is a titanic struggle with the son of Milady, who wears the face of Evil. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Frederick Davidson.
