How much CO2 they produce? Everything energy since the beginning to today, a wealth of knowledge in today's number one topic. Be informed.

In this Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, historian Barbara Tuchman brings to life the people and events that led up to World War I. This was the last gasp of the Gilded Age, of Kings and Kaisers and Czars, of pointed or plumed hats, colored uniforms, and all the pomp and romance that went along with war. How quickly it all changed...and how horrible it became.

Great story, very well written. Hopefully, we will remember because we are heading the same way right now. The narration was very lively, with accent and everything.

Marcus Goldman, auteur d'un premier best-seller, est en panne d'inspiration. Quand il apprend que son mentor, le célèbre écrivain Harry Quebert, est le suspect numéro un d'un crime, il se précipite à son secours. Dans le jardin de Quebert, on a retrouvé le corps de Nola - 15 ans - serrant contre elle le manuscrit du roman d'amour que Quebert lui avait dédié. Devenu un best-seller, il avait fait la gloire de son auteur. L'histoire de Quebert devient alors le sujet romanesque que Marcus avait tant cherché.

Une beau récit et une histoire abracadabrante mais très bien cousue. Le genre de lecture qui risque d'accrocher vos ados, un peu comme Le Comte de Monte Cristo. À lire.
