Now featuring a brand-new chapter told by bully Julian, WONDER is a funny, frank, astonishingly moving debut to read in one sitting, pass on to others, and remember long after the final page.

Sijie, Dai

Nous nous approchâmes de la valise. Elle était ficelée par une grosse corde de paille tressée, nouée en croix. Nous la débarrassâmes de ses liens, et l'ouvrîmes silencieusement. A l'intérieur, des piles de livres s'illuminèrent sous notre torche électrique, les grands écrivains occidentaux nous accueillirent à bras ouverts: à leur tête, se tenait notre vieil ami Balzac, avec cinq ou six romans, suivi de Victor Hugo, Stendhal, Dumas, Flaubert, Baudelaire, Romain Rolland, Rousseau, Tolstoï, Gogol, Dostoïevski, et quelques Anglais: Dickens, Kipling, Emily Brontë... Quel éblouissement! Il referma la valise et, posant une main dessus, comme un chrétien prêtant serment, il me déclara: avec ces livres, je vais transformer la Petite Tailleuse. Elle ne sera plus jamais une simple montagnarde.

Houellebecq, Michel

Michel Houellebecq lo hace de nuevo. Después de Submission (2015), centrada en la colonización musulmana, y que anticipó las elecciones presidenciales de 2022, Annihilate se proyecta en 2027. Zemmour sigue trabajando en 2027, «solo tienes que pronunciar tu nombre y la conversación comienza a ronronear de maneras marcadas y suavemente predecibles, un poco como con Georges Marchais en su día, cada uno encuentra sus marcadores sociales, su posicionamiento natural, y saca satisfacciones tranquilas de ellos». Un tono muy kunderiano, Annihilate es quizás el libro maestro del autor, este viejo joven con insolencia desilusionada, endiabladamente inteligente y extrañamente cordel, cuyas proyecciones más acerbicas no dejan de golpear. Bajo un cielo gris, mucho sexo y alcohol, y para terminar una cita con la muerte, sumergirse en la nada. El aleccionismo es completo, una negación total, sin ningún recurso a mentiras maravillosas. Como dice una figura, «el pecado original del cristianismo es la esperanza».

Martin, George R.R.

George R. R. Martin's superb fantasy epic continues in consummate style as bloodshed and alchemy lay waste the Seven Kingdoms in the second volume of A Song of Ice and Fire. The Iron Throne once united the Sunset Lands, but King Robert is dead, his widow is a traitor to his memory, and his surviving brothers are set on a path of war amongst themselves. At King's Landing, the head of Lord Eddard Stark rots on a spike for all to see. His daughter Sansa is betrothed still to his killer's son Joffrey -- Queen Cersei's son, though not the son of her late husband Robert. Even so, Joffrey is now a boy-king, Cersei is his regent, and war is inevitable. In Dragonstone, Robert's brother Stanišićnis has declared himself king, while his other brother Renly proclaims himself king at Storm's End -- and Eddard Stark's fifteen year old son Robb wears the crown of the north at Winterfell. A comet in the night sky, red and malevolent, the colour of blood and flame, can only be an omen of murder and war. Stanišićnis's child Princess Shireen dreams of dragons waking from stone. And a white raven has brought word from the Citadel itself, foretelling summer's end. It has been the longest summer in living memory, lasting ten years, and the smallfolk say it means an even longer winter to come... The first rule of war is never give the enemy his wish. But winter will be the biggest enemy. From beyond the Wall the undead and Others clamour for freedom, and from beyond the sea the long-dead Dragon King's daughter hatches her revenge. Robb Stark will be exceedingly lucky to reach adulthood.
