Calificación de Goodreads
Explore the politics and ethics of reading in this galvanizing book that empowers readers to engage with fiction, art, and buried histories. Smart, funny, and sometimes profane, the book reimagines the classics, builds a moral case against settler colonialism, and celebrates everything from popular TV shows to contemporary poets. It's a deeply personal and urgent intervention into global discussions about why reading matters, inviting readers to embrace a more daring solidarity and riskier intimacy with themselves and others.

Hamnet book cover
Maggie O'Farrell - 2020-03-31
Calificación de Goodreads
Agnes, una muchacha peculiar que parece no rendir cuentas a nadie y que es capaz de crear misteriosos remedios con sencillas combinaciones de plantas, es la comidilla de Stratford, un pequeño pueblo de Inglaterra. Cuando esta conoce a un joven preceptor de latín igual de extraordinario que ella, se da cuenta enseguida de que están llamados a formar una familia. Pero su matrimonio se verá puesto a prueba, primero por sus parientes y después por una inesperada desgracia. Partiendo de la historia familiar de Shakespeare, Maggie O’Farrell transita entre la ficción y la realidad para trazar una hipnótica recreación del suceso que inspiró una de las obras literarias más famosas de todos los tiempos. La autora, lejos de fijarse únicamente en los acontecimientos conocidos, reivindica con ternura las inolvidables figuras que pueblan los márgenes de la historia y ahonda en las pequeñas grandes cuestiones de cualquier existencia: la vida familiar, el afecto, el dolor y la pérdida. El resultado es una inmensa novela que ha cosechado un enorme éxito internacional y confirma a O’Farrell como una de las voces más brillantes de la literatura inglesa actual.

La biblioteca en llamas book cover
La biblioteca en llamas
Susan Orlean - 2018-10-16
Calificación de Goodreads
La historia de cualquier incendio es la historia de un olvido, por eso casi nadie recuerda lo que ocurrió el 29 de abril de 1986. Aquel día la Biblioteca Pública de Los Ángeles amaneció consumida por el fuego, cuatrocientos mil libros se convirtieron en cenizas y otros setecientos mil quedaron irremediablemente dañados. Siete horas ardieron las estanterías y las mesas y los ficheros, pero ningún periódico cubrió la noticia porque al otro lado del mundo, entre los bosques densos de la Unión Soviética, ocurría el mayor accidente nuclear hasta la fecha: Chernóbil. ¿Quién querría quemar una biblioteca? ¿Por qué? Susan Orlean se hizo esas dos preguntas y al poco tiempo entendió que el fuego sería apenas un rastro, una línea punteada sobre la que dibujar su personalísima visión del conocimiento y de las personas que creen en él. La biblioteca en llamas es un homenaje a la lectura y el relato de una periodista obsesionada por encontrar al culpable de un crimen contra la memoria. Una investigación que se extendió más de una década y que a cambio nos revela personajes desopilantes, inverosímiles y tiernos.

Loved this book, and I bet it will resonate with you if you were a high achieving teen in the 90s, or just a high-achieving teen. Or just a teen, period.      fuente
