Oliver Flynn's wedding is the social event of the year, and the creme de la creme of Kilronan are happy to boast of being invited. Noreen, his new wife, has finally outclassed her two sisters, who think they are better than her in every way. Not any more! But there is one nagging doubt: does Oliver REALLY love her? Would he have married her if she hadn't done the proposing herself? Cora Flynn, Oliver's bitter mother, has boycotted the wedding. She is determined that her detested new daughter-in-law will not become the number one woman in her son's life. Wedding guest Lorna Morgan can't wait to shake the dust of Kilronan off her shoes. She's destined for bright city lights, unlike her stick-in-the-mud cousin, Heather Williams, who was only invited to the 'afters' with her clodhopper boyfriend, Neil. But then, in Lorna's eyes, Heather's just an 'afters' sort of person and always will be. But worms turn, and what a difference a year makes. In Dublin, London and New York there is no respite for Noreen, Lorna or Heather. Only in Kilronan can the Pandora's box that was opened at Oliver Flynn's wedding finally be closed.
Wayne Shelton is ready to proceed with the mission and spring his quarry from a Khalak prison. There is a small concern over Madrier, the Frenchman who talked his way onto the team - only to abandon them after he was revealed to be the son of a Khalak dissident. A job's a job, though, and Shelton gave his word to his employer. But what if there are other separate, secret interests among the little band that could jeopardise everything?
We are not like other folk, maybe, but there have always been Starkadders at Cold Comfort Farm. Sensible, sophisticated Flora Poste has been expensively educated to do everything but earn a living. When she is orphaned at twenty, she decides her only option is to descend on relatives - the doomed Starkadders at the aptly named Cold Comfort Farm. There is Judith in a scarlet shawl, heaving with remorse for an unspoken wickedness; raving old Ada Doom, who once saw something nasty in the woodshed; lustful Seth and despairing Reuben, Judith's two sons; and there is Amos, preaching fire and damnation to one and all. As the sukebind flowers, Flora takes each of the family in hand and brings order to their chaos. "Cold Comfort Farm" is a sharp and clever parody of the melodramatic and rural novel.

'Almost There and Other Stories' are stories worth reading. Every story is unique and has a lesson that will give the reader an in-depth glimpse into the lives of some children living in different parts of western Zambia, especially those in the untapped but beautiful remote areas. Adventure is good for both young and old, but it is much more interesting for young children and youths because along the way, it builds and strengthens their characters and in the process, releases a satisfying sense of achievement.
One night before putting him to bed, Enaiatollah's mother tells him three things: don't use drugs or weapons, don't cheat, don't steal. The next day he wakes up to find she isn't there. Ten-year-old Enaiatollah is left alone at the border of Pakistan to fend for himself. In a book that takes a true story and shapes it into a beautiful piece of fiction, Italian novelist Fabio Geda describes Enaiatollah's remarkable five-year journey from Afghanistan to Italy where he finally managed to claim political asylum aged fifteen. His ordeal took him through Iran, Turkey and Greece, working on building sites in order to pay people-traffickers, and enduring the physical misery of dangerous border crossings squeezed into the false bottoms of lorries or trekking across inhospitable mountains. A series of almost implausible strokes of fortune enabled him to get to Turin, find help from an Italian family and meet Fabio Geda, with whom he became friends. The result of their friendship is this unique book in which Enaiatollah's engaging, moving voice is brilliantly captured by Geda's subtly simple storytelling. In Geda's hands, Enaiatollah's journey becomes a universal story of stoicism in the face of fear, and the search for a place where life is liveable.

Lausanne, Switzerland. In the cathedral tower lives a strange boy with a limp who talks to the bells. In a luxury penthouse lives a high-class prostitute who's in mortal danger. And in a low-rent hotel lives a private investigator who has no idea how he got there. Jay Harper finds himself in Switzerland on the trail of a missing Olympic athlete. A hard drinker, he can barely remember how he got home last night, let alone why he accepted this job. When he meets the stunning but aloof Katherine in a hotel bar, he quickly realises that he's not the only one in town who's for hire. She's a high-class hooker who can't believe her luck. Which is about to change. For the worse. In the meantime, Marc Rochat spends his time in the belfry talking to the statues, his cat and the occasional ghost. His job is to watch over Lausanne at night and to wait for the angel his mother told him he'd one day have to save. When he sees Katherine, he thinks his moment has come. Which indeed it has. But not in a good way...
Be careful what you wish for. You never know who might be listening.' There's no getting away from it. From whichever angle, Death is a horrible, inescapable business. But someone's got to do it.

There aren't too many who are qualified to fill Death's footsteps and it certainly doesn't help the imminent cataclysm that the one person poised between the mortal and the immortal is only sixteen years old...
First of all the product blurb, is for the movie Minions not this book, there is no Scarlett or most of the other stuff listed as what this book is about. This picture book is simply about the time the minions stumbled across a castle and met their new master Dracula. There is a page showing how they stuffed up and brought the demise of their previous Egyptian and bad dinosaur masters. This is the story of how they brought about the demise of Dracula. I haven`t seen the Minions movie but from the previews I have seen how they killed Dracula and this book follows that scene. There isn`t much substance to the story or the illustrations. For example the minions outside the castle are pretty much just yellow half rectangles curved at the top with a thin blue rectangle on top of a white rectangle representing their Egyptian clothes (which they`ve been wearing for thousands of years?). Then as soon as they`ve met Dracula they have fangs and a Dracula like outfit. So did they get bitten and transformed into vampires? Who knows, there`s no sentences telling us any of this story, we just go to two minions Carl and Mike fighting over whose turn it is to sweep cobwebs then pretty much the cake and gift making and we know how that turned out. These minions also speak (granted like someone who can only speak a word of two of English), yet in the Despicable Me movies they could only make noises. It really isn`t a well written story and is relying on being bought as the recipient is obsessed with these cool little yellow creatures. Unfortunately you`re probably better off buying them a minion figure and having them recreate the Dracula and other scenes from the movies with their own imaginations. The illustrations are a long way of the quality of the ones used in the movies, the cover image you can see on the product page is as good as they get in this book and most of the pages don`t reach that standard.
