Samuel Beckett - Murphy (angol)
_Murphy_, Samuel Beckett's first novel, was published in 1938. Its work-shy eponymous hero, adrift in London, realises that desire can never be satisfied and withdraws from life, in search of stupor. Murphy's lovestruck fiancée Celia tries with tragic pathos to draw him back, but her attempts are doomed to failure. Murphy's friends and familiars are simulacra of Murphy, fragmented and incomplete. But Beckett's achievement lies in the brilliantly original language used to communicate this vision of isolation and misunderstanding. The combination of particularity and absurdity gives Murphy's world its painful definition, but the sheer comic energy of Beckett's prose releases characters and readers alike into exuberance.
Ismeretlen szerző - Csitt! Egy fehér lovat hallok közeledni / Hark! I Hear a White Horse Coming
Hark! I hear a white horse coming Csitt! Egy fehér lovat hallok közeledni - sokáig "ismeretlen szerzőnek" tulajdonítottuk az idézetet, mígnem ráleltünk a forrásra: a harmincas évek nagy sikerű, Lone Ranger (Magányos lovas) című westernhangjáték-sorozatában hangzott el, és bizony a szerző nem poénnak szánta, hanem bakizott. Szerencsére, hiszen ezzel az aprócska abszurdummal egy műfaj hangulatának állított örök emléket, azontúl, hogy megnevettette a rádióhallgatókat. A fehér lovon kívül szerepelnek még a könyvben kutyák, madarak, detektívek, teniszjátékosok, istenek, félistenek és istennők, részegek és józanok, orvosok és betegek, hárpiák, királyok, korrupt politikusok, űrhajósok, ünnepelt sztárok... hát igen, egy idézeteskönyv stábja végeláthatatlan.

Katona Lucia - Patthy Miklósné - Sarbu Éva - Angol teszt- és fordítási feladatok közép- és felsőfokon
A könyvet az Idegennyelvi Továbbképző Központ munkatársai állították össze, abból a célból, hogy a vizsgafeladatok megoldásához segítséget nyújtsanak. Valamennyi feladat az új vizsgarendszer normáit követi. Teljesen új ezek közül a felsőfokú feladat (feleletválasztós teszt és tömörítés), amelyhez gyakorló anyag eddig még nem jelent meg. Hasznosnak bizonyult a gyakorlati életben is a tömörítésben megkívánt készség fejlesztése (hosszabb magyar szöveg tartalmi ismertetése angol nyelven). Az 50 lépéses középfokú tesztet mint vizsgafeladatot ugyan nem tekinthetjük újnak, de egy könyvben összefoglalásuk eredeti. Valamennyi tesztfeladatban a felkínált négy választási lehetőség közül egy a jó. A középfokú idegennyelvű írás- és olvasáskészséget tesztelő "B" vizsgán szerepel még egy 500 n terjedelmű magyar szöveg fordítása idegen nyelvre. Ez a szöveg - ellentétben az előző vizsgarendszer különálló mondataival - összefüggő. Szókincse mindennapi, nyelvtani szerkezeteit illetően azonban tartalmasabb egy normál köznyelvi szövegnél. Ehhez, mint a feleletválasztós teszten kívül minden vizsgafeladathoz, szótár használható. A feladatok írója angol mintamegoldást ad valamennyi fordítási feladathoz.

But Ana always knew that loving her Fifty Shades would not be easy, and being together poses challenges neither of them ever anticipated. Ana must somehow learn to share Christian’s opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own integrity, identity or independence; Christian must somehow overcome his compulsion to control, and lay to rest the horrors that blighted his past and haunt his present. Just when it seems that together their love can conquer any obstacle, misfortune, malice and fate combine to make Ana’s worst nightmares come true. Alone and desperate, she must face down the poisoned legacy of Christian’s past. Seductive, shocking, sad and funny, Fifty Shades Freed is the compelling final volume in the Fifty Shades trilogy.

A. Merritt - The Moon Pool
"All dead. Edith, Stanton, Thora - dead - or worse. And Edith in the Moon Pool - with them - drawn by what you saw on the moonpath - that has put its brand upon me - and follows me!" As Dr. David Throckmartin gasps out the horrible climax to the story of his expedition among the ruins of an ancient Pacific civilization, Dr. Walter Goodwin listens to his incredible tale, certain that the great scientist has gone mad. For he has told of how his young bride Edith and other members of his exploring party were spirited away by the unearthly androgynous Dweller of the Moon Pool - a "thing" that arises at the full moon from the wailed ruins of an ancient Polynesian culture and manifests itself amid the faint chanting of voices, a drifting, undulating, crystalline chiming, and a glittering cluster of palely colored lights. Its embrace induces feelings of both rapture and terror in its prey, a state that Throckmartin describes was "as though the icy soul of evil and the fiery soul of good had stepped together within me." Bearing the peculiar small white mark of the Shining One, Throckmartln had miraculously escaped the fate of his friends. And then, before Goodwin's eyes, aboard the ship that is bearing them both across the Southern seas beneath another full moon, Throckmartin disappears in the glistening embrace of the pursuing Dweller of the Moon Pool. Determined to solve the rnystery of the Moon Pool and learn the fate of Throckmartin and his party, Goodwin sets out on an expedition that includes among its members an Irish air ace named Larry O'Keefe, a huge modern Viking named Olaf Huldricksson, and a sinister Soviet scientist named Marakinoff. Following Throckmartin's directions to the island ruins, the party plunges into a fantastic adventure at the site of the Moon Pool that is an imaginative tour de force seldom equalled in science fiction.
