(1881) Later republished as A Daughter's Devotion Written at the height of George MacDonald's literary career, the story centers around the life of a simple merchant's daughter. Mary Marston's unswerving commitment to love God and others is contrasted with a backdrop of an array of characters and a complex and sometimes mysterious plot. It is a story of a woman who loves a man, and teaches him to change. Not out of his love for her, but simply because it was the right thing to do.
Nema nikakve sumnje: Radetzky marš Josepha Rotha jedan je od najznačajnijih romana što ih je njemački jezik dao XX. stoljeću, a literarni genij njegova autora stoji uz bok onima Thomasa Manna, Alfreda Döblina ili Roberta Musila.
U taktu slavne Straussove koračnice, ironično, ali ne bez suosjećanja, Roth prikazuje ništa manje nego jedno carstvo, jedan svemir u nestajanju. Premda vidi i bilježi sve – vojarne i blato provincije, rezidencije i kavane Beča – u centru njegova zanimanja sudbina je triju generacija obitelji Trotta, a za Trotte sve počinje i završava s carem.
Od djeda, koji je titulu baruna zaslužio na bojnome polju spasivši mladoga Franju Josipa, preko sina, koji pod Njegovim portretom služi kao činovnik, sve do unuka, koji za cara i vjedro vode gine početkom Velikog rata – uspon i pad Trotta odvija se pod hladnim plavim pogledom monarha s kojim će se ugasiti Austro-Ugarska.
Savršeno ugođen za vrijeme katastrofe u kojem je nastao, ali i za uho suvremenog čitatelja, Radetzky marš odjekuje iznimnom elegancijom i psihološkom uvjerljivošću, suptilnim humorom i bespoštednošću.
Govoreći o idealima i zabludama jednoga vremena, jalovoj ljepoti jednoga svijeta na zalasku, Roth pripovijeda i o rođenju ovoga u kojem živimo, nerijetko proročki upozoravajući na ono što je ugmizalo u kolijevku.
John Carter returns to the red planet ten years after his Martian death in search of his wife, Princess Dejah Thoris. He joins forces with old comrades and forms new lifetime alliances as he battles hostile enemies, previously unknown to his people of Barsoom. His adventures reveal the truth about the Gods of Mars. This is the second book in the Mars series.
Although Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950) is justifiably famous as the creator of Tarzan of the Apes, that uprooted Englishman was not his only popular hero. Burroughs's first sale (in 1912) was A Princess of Mars, opening the floodgates to one of the must successful--and prolific--literary careers in history. This is a wonderful scientific romance that perhaps can be best described as early science fiction melded with an epic dose of romantic adventure. A Princess of Mars is the first adventure of John Carter, a Civil War veteran who unexpectedly find himself transplanted to the planet Mars. Yet this red planet is far more than a dusty, barren place; it's a fantasy world populated with giant green barbarians, beautiful maidens in distress, and weird flora and monstrous fauna the likes of which could only exist in the author's boundless imagination. Sheer escapism of the tallest order, the Martian novels are perfect entertainment for those who find Tarzan's fantastic adventures aren't, well, fantastic enough. Although this novel can stand alone, there are a total of 11 volumes in this classic series of otherworldly, swashbuckling adventure.
A stalled negotiation leaves a translator clone with only two options: succeed or die.
Translator clone Thalia Blueheart can learn and speak any language in the known universe, but her skills aren’t doing her any good. Both the Motomaks and the Crenicians want total control over a new bio-energy source and are willing to annihilate anyone who gets in their way–namely, each other. The lone Zabolov at the negotiation table has yet to speak and offers her no help.
Translator clones live notoriously short lives. They either succeed at their assignments and live or they fail and are sent back to the lab to be destroyed. There are no second chances.
Thalia doesn’t want to die. Her daring solution surprises everybody and changes her life in a way she never dreamed possible.
Far to the north, in the frozen wastes of Polar Mars, lay the home of the Holy Therns, sacred and inviolate. Only John Carter dared to go there to find his lost Dejah Thoris. But between him and his goal lay the bones of all who had gone before.

This couldn’t be the end of us. We had so much promise
Travis has no big dreams life is perfect, and he already sees his destiny written in glittering stars. The 21-year-old college student is dating Marilyn, his high school sweetheart, and knows his future lies in marrying her, working at a stable job and providing for their family.
However, fate has other plans in store for Travis – plans that will turn his life upside-down.
What starts out as a routine date at Marilyn’s favorite place soon turns into a gut-wrenching nightmare.

As his efforts continue to flounder against a stone-faced Marilyn, he sinks deeper into despair, he barely notices another woman who is eager to be a part of his life.

However, just as Travis’ last memories of Marilyn are fading into the background, she reappears – and Travis realizes that his heart is now split between the two women and he must make a difficult choice.
Travis finds himself trapped in the middle of a love triangle where making the right choice seems impossible. His memories of Marilyn, combined with his long-held dreams of a comfortable existence now fight with the exciting Emma, who was the only person who truly helped him heal after being dumped.
