[Buchzuwachs] noch mehr englische Bücher

Da mir wieder etwas die englischen Bücher ausgingen (naja, fast...) habe ich diesmal bei zugeschlagen, denn dort gab es einige Bücher etwas günstiger. Das ist das Schöne an den englischen Büchern: ein Preisvergleich lohnt sich.

Haruki Murakami - Norwegian Wood
Toru, a quiet and preternaturally serious young college student in Tokyo, is devoted to Naoko, a beautiful and introspective young woman, but their mutual passion is marked by the tragic death of their best friend years before. Toru begins to adapt to campus life and the loneliness and isolation he faces there, but Naoko finds the pressures and responsibilities of life unbearable. As she retreats further into her own world, Toru finds himself reaching out to others and drawn to a fiercely independent and sexually liberated young woman.

J.M. Barrie - Peter Pan
From the moment when Peter Pan and his irritable fairy friend Tinker Bell fly in through the nursery window, the story casts a magic spell. The Darling children are carried away to the Neverland where they meet the Lost Boys, watch shy mermaids playing in the blue lagoon and encounter Captain Hook and his wicked pirate band...

Jon Krakauer - Into the wild
In April 1992, Chris McCandless, a young man from a well-to-do family, hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness. He had given all his savings to charity, abandoned his car and possessions, burnt all the money in his wallet, and invented a new life for himself. Four months later, his decomposed body was found by a hunter...

Jay Lake - Mainspring
Her Imperial Majesty Queen Victoria still rules New England and her American Possessions; the Royal Navy rules the skies with its mighty airships; and Earth still turns on God's great brass gears of Heaven as it makes its orderly passage around the Lamp of the Sun from Midnight to Midnight and Year to Year.
In the town of New Haven, a Clockmaker's young apprentice is visited at midnight by a brass Angel, and told that he, and he alone, can find the Key Perilous to rewind the Mainspring of Earth. If he does not, the planet will wind down, and life will cease.

Außerdem habe ich mir bei folgendes deutsches Buch ertauscht:
Umberto Eco - Der Name der Rose

  1. Umm... Peter Pan liegt immer noch angefangen im Bücherregal. Ich sollte mich schämen!
    Dabei ist es gar nicht so schwer - ich hatte nur irgendwann keine Lust mehr. Schande über mich!
