La reine dans le palais des courants d'air

17 ratings


Les auditeurs du deuxième volume l’espéraient : Lisbeth n'est pas morte ! Mais, très mal en point, elle va rester coincée des semaines à l'hôpital, dans l'incapacité physique d'agir. Et comme il n'existe aucune raison pour que cessent les activités souterraines des renégats de la Säpo, le procès qui s'annonce pour elle est loin d'être sans danger... A l'évidence, Emmanuel Dekoninck s'amuse toujours autant à interpréter les personnages hors norme de cette série devenue culte ! En bonus, un entretien avec Marc de Gouvenain, l'éditeur de la trilogie.

The Ministry for the Future

33 ratings


From legendary science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson comes a remarkable vision of climate change over the coming decades. The Ministry for the Future is a masterpiece of the imagination, using fictional eyewitness accounts to tell the story of how climate change will affect us all. Its setting is not a desolate, post-apocalyptic world, but a future that is almost upon us - and in which we might just overcome the extraordinary challenges we face. It is a novel both immediate and impactful, desperate and hopeful in equal measure, and it is one of the most powerful and original books on climate change ever written. "A breathtaking look at the challenges that face our planet in all their sprawling magnitude and also in their intimate, individual moments of humanity." (Booklist, starred) "A sweeping, optimistic portrait of humanity's ability to cooperate in the face of disaster. This heartfelt work of hard science-fiction is a must-read for anyone worried about the future of the planet." (Publishers Weekly, starred) Also by Kim Stanley Robinson:  Red Moon New York 2140 2312 Aurora Shaman

A Cocoon with a View


Back in the last weeks of February, which now feels like a hundred years ago, we here in Innishannon were busy planning what was termed ‘The Big Rake Off’ of the dead grass on the long sloping bank beside the road coming into the village. Happily unaware of forthcoming events, we were totally focused on creating our wild flower bank - to get something like this going you need a ‘metheal’, a word which prior to the coronavirus was unknown to anyone under 40.    Then everything changed.... Exploring the themes of community, family and personal wellbeing, Alice Taylor examines a world changed utterly by the arrival of a once-in-a-century infectious disease. Heart-warming, reflective yet always practical, Alice is a wonderful guide in a world unlike the one we lived in only a few short months ago.

The Visitor


Is he who he says he is? Izzie Mallon will be shutting herself away from the festive season, and the snowstorm that has brought the city to a standstill, in her apartment on Henrietta Square - the beautiful home she shared with her beloved husband, Sam, until his tragic death a few months ago. Then, there’s a knock at the door - a stranger, stranded by the bad weather. He tells Izzie that he’s Eli Sanders, her husband’s longtime friend. Izzie has never met him in person, but feels she owes it to Sam to welcome Eli into her home. Even though her instincts say otherwise.... As Izzie tries to reminisce with Eli about her husband, cracks in his story begin to show. But will she be able to see clearly through her grief before it’s too late?
