Chocky by John Wyndham ( )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Matthew's parents are worried. At eleven, he's much too old to have an imaginary friend, yet they find him talking to and arguing with a presence that even he admits is not physically there. This presence, Chocky, makes Matthew ask difficult questions and say startling things. Then, when he does something incredible, it seems Chocky is more than imaginary. But who is Chocky? And what could it want with an eleven-year-old boy?
Three brothers by Peter Ackroyd ( )
2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Three Brothers follows the fortunes of Harry, Daniel and Sam Hanway, born on a post-war council estate in Camden Town. Marked out from the start by curious coincidence, each boy is forced to make his own way in the world - a world of dodgy deals and big business, of criminal gangs and crooked landlords, of newspaper magnates, back-biters and petty thieves. London is the backdrop and the connecting fabric of these three lives, reinforcing Ackroyd's grand theme that place and history create, surround and engulf us. From bustling, cut-throat Fleet Street to hallowed London publishing houses, from the wealth and corruption of Chelsea to the smoky shadows of Limehouse and Hackney, this is an exploration of the city in the new freedom of the 1960s
An atheist's history of belief : understanding our most extraordinary invention by Matthew Kneale ( )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What first prompted prehistoric man, sheltering in the shadows of deep caves, to call upon the realm of the spirits? And why has belief thrived ever since, leading us to invent heaven and hell, sin and redemption, and above all, gods? Religion reflects our deepest hopes and fears; whether you are a believer or, like Matthew Kneale, a non-believer who admires mankind's capacity to create and to imagine, it has shaped our world. And as our dreams and nightmares have changed over the millennia, so have our beliefs - from shamans to Aztec priests, from Buddhists to Christians: the gods we created have evolved with us. Belief is humanity's most epic invention. It has always been our closest companion and greatest consolation. To understand it is to better understand ourselves
The lowdown : the EU : should we stay or should we go? by Paul Kent ( )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What has the EU ever done for us? Why doesn't Posh Spice like the European Union? Which EU member nation is the grumpiest? How many people does it take to post a letter in the EU HQ in Brussels? When did Margaret Thatcher drape herself in a German flag? How does the EU recommend you dispose of a broken vibrator? Where can you go for an unbiased appraisal of the EU? The answer to that last question is: keep reading this blurb. There are literally hundreds of books and websites that deal with the history, workings, constitution and finances of the EU. But they all tend to fall into one -or both- of two categories: hopelessly biased or hopelessly boring. Until now, that is. Faced with the prospect that the UK electorate might be asked whether it wants in or out of Europe in 2017, Paul Kent discovered he didn't have the first clue which side he was on. So instead of relying on journalists, bureaucrats or politicians to feed him their distorted, dull or partisan half-truths, he decided to find out for himself -- emerging with this short, pithy and, gasp, funny survey that puts everything in perspective so you don't have to. And he also promises he won't tell you which way to vote. So if you want to thank Paul for risking his sanity in this selfless act of public service, you could do worse than download a copy of The EU:Should We Stay Or Should We Go? It's the only EU guide you will ever need. And it will make you laugh while you learn a thing or two. And by the way, if you want the answers to those other five intriguing EU questions, they're just a few clicks away
