Jávorszky Béla Szilárd - Sziget 20 (angol)
"In 2012 the Sziget festival will be organized for the twentieth time. We can proudly say that the event voted as the Best European Major Festival may be the greatest success of Hungary since the political shift of 1989. From the standpoints of both variety and openness, the Sziget is a one of a kind event, not only in Hungary but in Europe as well. There is no other festival on the old continent whose growth has been this fast. With its programs and cultural colorfulness, its price to worth ratio, its standard of services and the many causes it fought for, it cannot be compared to anything else. You can be an anarchist punk from the Netherlands, a French philosopher, or a German bank leader, you will find the means to satisfy your needs. It's a place where the music of the world, the Gypsies, the African culture, the LGBT community, Jewish culture, the environmentalist and civil movements all have a designated space. Every year it gives you everything music has to offer, from mainstream pop to the underground, from teenage punk to modern opera, from an African village to the street theatre, from disco to literary events. It's also a place where the visitors can choose from a wide selection of high-quality gastronomic possibilities. Not only from traditional Hungarian dishes, but Arab, Greek, Chinese, Thai, Jewish, Italian, French, Balkan, or Indian, wines, beers, spirits and cocktails, everything. Not speaking of the backstage where the biggest artists can try the fantasies of a Michelin-starred chef. Without exaggeration the Sziget is one of the biggest, most open and democratic megaparties, attracting the young and not so young to the river-caressed green heart of Budapest, across a bridge, on an island where a new world awaits them."
Michael Crichton - Congo
Deep in the African rain forest, near the legendary ruins of the Lost City of Zinj, an expedition of eight American geologists is mysteriously and brutally killed in a matter of minutes. Ten thousand miles away, Karen Ross, the Congo Project Supervisor, watches a gruesome video transmission of the aftermath: a camp destroyed, tents crushed and torn, equipment scattered in the mud alongside dead bodies -- all motionless except for one moving image -- a grainy, dark, man-shaped blur. In San Francisco, primatologist Peter Elliot works with Amy, a gorilla with an extraordinary vocabulary of 620 "signs," the most ever learned by a primate, and she likes to fingerpaint. But recently, her behavior has been erratic and her drawings match, with stunning accuracy, the brittle pages of a Portuguese print dating back to 1642 . . . a drawing of an ancient lost city. A new expedition -- along with Amy -- is sent into the Congo where they enter a secret world, and the only way out may be through a horrifying death . . .
J. M. Barrie - Echoes of the War
Three nice old ladies and a criminal, who is even nicer, are discussing the war over a cup of tea. The criminal, who is the hostess, calls it a dish of tea, which shows that she comes from Caledonia; but that is not her crime. They are all London charwomen, but three of them, including the hostess, are what are called professionally 'charwomen and' or simply 'ands.' An 'and' is also a caretaker when required; her name is entered as such in ink in a registry book, financial transactions take place across a counter between her and the registrar, and altogether she is of a very different social status from one who, like Mrs. Haggerty, is a charwoman but nothing else. Mrs. Haggerty, though present, is not at the party by invitation; having seen Mrs. Dowey buying the winkles, she followed her downstairs, so has shuffled into the play and sat down in it against our wish. We would remove her by force, or at least print her name in small letters, were it not that she takes offence very readily and says that nobody respects her. So, as you have slipped in, you sit there, Mrs. Haggerty; but keep quiet.
Meg Cabot - Avalon High: Coronation 1. - The Merlin Prophecy
Meg Cabot's magical Arthurian epic continues...MANGA STYLE! Being a new student at Avalon High has been exciting for Ellie, to say the least...she's an honor student, a star on the track team, and oh, yeah, dating the super-hot class president, Will. Who also happens to be alleged reincarnation of King Arhtur. Ellie couldn't be happier to have Will in her life, but she's also worried that his estrangement from his parents is tearing him apart. To make matters worse, Will's doubt that he really is King Aruthur could prevent the Merlin Prophecy—an age of enlightenment—from occurring. Can Ellie convince Will to believe in something that even she isn't sure about? And more importantly, can she get him to give his parents another chance? With all the mythology and mysticism of AVALON HIGH, Meg Cabot's very first manga is indeed a tale for the ages.
Brander Matthews - Poems of American Patriotism
Looked eastward from the farms, And twice each day the flowing sea Took Boston in its arms; The men of yore were stout and poor, And sailed for bread to every shore. And where they went on trade intent They did what freemen can, Their dauntless ways did all men praise, The merchant was a man. The world was made for honest trade,— To plant and eat be none afraid.
Brander Matthews - Vignettes of Manhattan / Outlines in Local Color
THE little church stands back from the street, with a scrap of lawn on either side of the path that winds from the iron gate to the church door. On this chill January morning the snow lay a foot deep on the grass-plots, with the water frozen out of it by the midnight wind. The small fountain on one side was sheathed with ice; and where its tiny spirtle fell a glittering stalagmite was rising rapidly, so the rotund sparrows had difficulty in getting at their usual drinking-trough. The sky was ashen, yet there was a hope that the sun might break out later in the morning. A sharp breeze blew down the street from the river, bearing with it, now and again, the tinkle of sleigh-bells from the Avenue, only fifty yards away. There was the customary crowd of curious idlers gathered about the gate as the hearse drew up before it. The pall-bearers alighted from the carriages which followed, and took up their positions on the sidewalk, while the undertaker's assistants were lifting out the coffin. Then the bareheaded and gray-haired rector came from out the church porch, and went down to the gate to meet the funeral procession. He held the prayer-book open in his hand, and when he came to the coffin he began to read the solemn words of the order for the burial of the dead:

C. S. Forester - Lord Hornblower (angol)
1813, and Horatio Hornblower is propelled toward the heart of the French Empire and his old enemy, Napoleon . . . Sir Horatio Hornblower has received strict and highly confidential orders from the highest rank: he must embark upon a grave and perilous mission to recapture the Flame in the Bay of Seine, where the brutal and foul-tempered Lieutenant Augustine Chadwick is being held prisoner by a mutinous crew. Rescuing the Lieutenant demands all of Horatio's spirit and seafaring prowess - for at the same time, he must contend with capturing two French cargo vessels and take part in negotiations to topple the faltering Napoleon once and for all . . . This is the ninth of eleven books chronicling the adventures of C. S. Forester's inimitable nautical hero, Horatio Hornblower.
Samuel Richardson - Introduction to Pamela
Since most publishers of Pamela have preferred to print Richardson’s table of contents from the sixth edition, his complete introduction (his preface, together with letters to the editor and comments) is missing even from some of our best collections. Occasionally one finds the preface and the first two letters, but only four publishers since Richardson have attempted to reprint the full introduction. Harrison (London, 1785) -- who omits the first letter -- and Cooke (London, 1802-3) both follow Richardson’s eighth edition; Ballantyne (Edinburgh, 1824) uses the fourth; the Shakespeare Head (Oxford, 1929), the third. And even these printings leave one dissatisfied. The Shakespeare Head gives the fullest text, but naturally omits Richardson’s revisions; Cooke gives the introduction in its final form, but one misses the full text which accompanied the book in its heyday; and rarely are both Cooke and Shakespeare Head to be found in the same library.

M. M. Pattison Muir - The Story of Alchemy and the Beginnings of Chemistry
For thousands of years before men had any accurate and exact knowledge of the changes of material things, they had thought about these changes, regarded them as revelations of spiritual truths, built on them theories of things in heaven and earth (and a good many things in neither), and used them in manufactures, arts, and handicrafts, especially in one very curious manufacture wherein not the thousandth fragment of a grain of the finished article was ever produced. The accurate and systematic study of the changes which material things undergo is called chemistry; we may, perhaps, describe alchemy as the superficial, and what may be called subjective, examination of these changes, and the speculative systems, and imaginary arts and manufactures, founded on that examination. We are assured by many old writers that Adam was the first alchemist, and we are told by one of the initiated that Adam was created on the sixth day, being the 15th of March, of the first year of the world; certainly alchemy had a long life, for chemistry did not begin until about the middle of the 18th century.

Fata Morgana - Born to be a slave
Baal lives among us. His time is our time, his world is ours as well. He lives here, he is an ordinary citizen, grey, no one ever notices him. It is good as it is, he wants it this way. But as we read the novel, some kind of dimm restlessness awakes in us, from the beginning. We soon lose our confidence, as we learn about Baal’s past. This ideal citizen appears here and there, and leaves death behind. But what he does, is not followed by investigations. These are not felonies. Baal is connected to some kind of strange powers, he gets the instructions from them. His acts sometimes might seem irrational. Other times we have the impression we know what the powers that control him are. As these powers have been here with us for thousands of years, day by day. They are parts of our lives. But when the threads tightened and start tearing between Baal and the other world, the picture becomes blurred. Who is good and who is bad. The greatest power that moves the world is part of this story too. Who is with who in the final collision, and why? In the unravelling huge tragedy not Baal is the stake. . . but us.
Mór Jókai - The Slaves of the Padishah
The S—— family was one of the richest in Wallachia, and consequently one of the most famous. The head of the family dictated to twelve boyars, collected hearth-money and tithes from four-and-fifty villages, lived nine months in the year at Stambul, held the Sultan's bridle when he mounted his steed in time of war, contributed two thousand lands-knechts to the host of the Pasha of Macedonia, and had permission to keep on his slippers when he entered the inner court of the Seraglio. In the year 1600 and something, George was the name of the first-born of the S—— family, but with him we shall not have very much concern. We shall do much better to follow the fortunes of the second born, Michael, whom his family had sent betimes to Bucharest to be brought up as a priest in the Seminary there. The youth had, however, a remarkably thick head, and, so far from making any great progress in the sciences, was becoming quite an ancient classman, when he suddenly married the daughter of a sub-deacon, and buried himself in a little village in Wallachia. There he spent a good many years of his life with scarce sufficient stipend to clothe him decently, and had he not tilled his soil with his own hands, he would have been hard put to it to find maize-cakes enough to live upon.
Mabel Thorne - The Sheridan Road Mystery
It was a still, balmy night in late October. The scent of burned autumn leaves hung in the air, and a hazy moon, showing just over the housetops, deepened the shadows on the streets. Policeman Murphy stopped far a moment, as was his custom, at the corner of Lawrence Avenue and Sheridan Road. He knew that it was about two o'clock in the morning as that was the hour at which he usually reached this point. He glanced sharply up and down Sheridan Road, which at that moment seemed to be completely deserted save for the distant red tail-light of a belated taxi, the whir of whose engine came to him quite distinctly on the quiet night air. JUST THEN POLICEMAN MURPHY HEARD A SHOT! Instantly his body quickened with an awakened alertness, and he glanced east and west along the lonely stretch of Lawrence Avenue. He saw nothing, and concluded that the sound he had heard must have come from one of the many apartment buildings which surrounded him. Murphy pondered for a moment. Was it a burglary, a domestic row, or perhaps a murder? The position of the shot was hard to locate, for it had been but the sound of a moment on the still night. Murphy, however, decided to take a chance, and started stealthily north on Sheridan Road, keeping within the shadow that clung to the buildings.
J. M. Barrie - Peter and Wendy
All children, except one, grow up. They soon know that they will grow up, and the way Wendy knew was this. One day when she was two years old she was playing in a garden, and she plucked another flower and ran with it to her mother. I suppose she must have looked rather delightful, for Mrs. Darling put her hand to her heart and cried, 'Oh, why can't you remain like this for ever!' This was all that passed between them on the subject, but henceforth Wendy knew that she must grow up. You always know after you are two. Two is the beginning of the end. Of course they lived at 14, and until Wendy came her mother was the chief one. She was a lovely lady, with a romantic mind and such a sweet mocking mouth. Her romantic mind was like the tiny boxes, one within the other, that come from the puzzling East, however many you discover there is always one more; and her sweet mocking mouth had one kiss on it that Wendy could never get, though there it was, perfectly conspicuous in the right-hand corner.
Charlotte Mendelson - Almost English
LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2013 The extraordinary new novel from the Orange Prize shortlisted author of When We Were Bad. Home is a foreign country: they do things differently there. In a tiny flat in West London, sixteen-year-old Marina lives with her emotionally delicate mother, Laura, and three ancient Hungarian relatives. Imprisoned by her family’s crushing expectations and their fierce unEnglish pride, by their strange traditions and stranger foods, she knows she must escape. But the place she runs to makes her feel even more of an outsider. At Combe Abbey, a traditional English public school for which her family have sacrificed everything, she realises she has made a terrible mistake. She is the awkward half-foreign girl who doesn’t know how to fit in, flirt or even be. And as a semi-Hungarian Londoner, who is she? In the meantime, her mother Laura, an alien in this strange universe, has her own painful secrets to deal with, especially the return of the last man she’d expect back in her life. She isn’t noticing that, at Combe Abbey, things are starting to go terribly wrong.
K. M. Smith - Thousand Faces of Love
My first book is titled ’Thousand faces of love.’ Back in 2013, one night I had a dream, visualizing one picture, one single moment – the other day I started to write the story. Oftentimes, phrases have been flowing out of me like a river – I could barely control the flow – however, I somehow managed to create this book. Our entire lives are filled with love. Love can catch us anywhere and anytime with thousand different faces. Katy Stevens is on the verge of the biggest opportunity of her life: as an actress, she has just been casted to the leading role of her dreams. She cannot believe that all of this happened to her.

Will she be able to prove her talent and to become successful in a leading role at such a young age? How could she possibly be working together with this phenomenal actor to be an equal partner to him? Katy has her mind filled with a variety of similar doubts, although while shooting, it becomes crystal clear that Rob is not only interested in her as an actress but as a woman as well. This situation brings up even more questions. How can these two with totally different social backgrounds and nationalities to live happily ever after? Do they even get a chance in life to be together as a couple? TRANSLATOR: TÜNDE GYURICKY The translation was based on K. M. Smith: A szerelem ezer arca was published in 2014 by the Publio Publisher.
Robert Louis Stevenson - The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde / The Suicide Club
Robert Louis Stevenson originally wrote "Dr. Jekyll And Mr Hyde" as a "chilling shocker." He then burned the draft and, upon his wife's advice, rewrote it as the darkly complex tale it is today. Stark, skillfully woven, this fascinating novel explores the curious turnings of human character through the strange case of Dr. Jekyll, a kindly scientist who by night takes on his stunted evil self, Mr. Hyde. Anticipating modern psychology, "Jekyll And Hyde" is a brilliantly original study of man's dual nature -- as well as an immortal tale of suspense and terror. Published in 1866, "Jekyll And Hyde" was an instant success and brought Stevenson his first taste of fame. Though sometimes dismissed as a mere mystery story, the book has evoked much literary admirations. Vladimir Nabokov likened it to "Madame Bovary" and "Dead Souls" as "a fable that lies nearer to poetry than to ordinary prose fiction."
