La historia interminable book cover
La historia interminable
Michael Ende - 1997-01-01 (publicado por primera vez en 1979)
Calificación de Goodreads
A cualquiera le puede ocurrir lo mismo que a Bastián: que entre en un libro y luego no pueda, o no quiera, salir de él. Bastián es un muchacho soñador, para quien la vida cotidiana en general y el colegio en particular constituyen una serie continua de sinsabores. De los que se defienden a copia de imaginación, artículo de primera necesidad. Buen día, los personajes de La historia interminable le piden ayuda. Y Bastián, que está leyendo el emocionante libro, irrumpe la aventura, dispuesto a colaborar en la salvación del reino sin fronteras de Fantasia. Y a echar una mano a Atreyu, el valeroso guerrero piel verde. Y a recorrer aquel mundo fabuloso, a lomos del dragón de la suerte. Y a codearse con silfos, gigantes comerocas, espectros, tortugas, caballos voladores, brujas, magas y mil seres fantásticos. Y a correr los peligros que haga falta correr...

Las crisálidas book cover
Las crisálidas
John Wyndham - 1977-06-28 (publicado por primera vez en 1955)
Calificación de Goodreads
A world paralysed by genetic mutation John Wyndham takes the reader into the anguished heart of a community where the chances of breeding true are less than fifty percent and where deviations are rooted out and destroyed as offences and abominations. As one reviewer wrote when "The Chrysalids" was first published: 'John Wyndham really does write... with a sort of hyaline simplicity, perfect timing, miraculous avoidance of cliché and a gentle, sophisticated, slightly astringent humour. He is one of the few authors whose compulsive readability is a compliment to the intelligence.'

Printer's Error book cover
Printer's Error
Irreverent Stories from Book History
Rebecca Romney - 2017-03-14
Calificación de Goodreads
Printer's Error is a funny and entertaining history of printed books, filled with absurd moments in the lives of authors and printers. This book takes us on a journey through the oddly humorous history of Western printing and introduces curious episodes that have had a profound impact on our world. With stories like how the father of Western printing, Johannes Gutenberg, went mysteriously unrecognized for centuries, this book is a rollicking ride for anyone interested in the printed word.
