Meaningful, moving and magical - the classic love story. Some people wait their whole lives to find their soul mates. But not Holly and Gerry.

“I just don't think our war aims - whatever they may be - and we don't know - justify this level of slaughter.”
The poets and soldiers Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen are dispatched to Craiglockhart War Hospital in Scotland in 1917. There, army psychiatrist William Rivers is treating brutalized, shell-shocked men. It is Rivers' job to fix these men and make them ready to fight again.

Barnes, Julian. Arthur & George / Julian Barnes. - London : Vintage books, 2012. - 505 p. - [Артур и Джордж].
Arthur and George grow up worlds apart in late nineteenth-century Britain: Arthur in shabby-genteel Edinburgh, George in the vicarage of a small Staffordshire village. Arthur is to become one of the most famous men of his age, while George remains in hard-working obscurity. But as the new century begins, they are brought together by a sequence of events that made sensational headlines at the time as The Great Wyrley Outrages.
This is a novel about low crime and high spirituality, guilt and innocence, identity, nationality and race. Most of all it is a profound and moving meditation on the fateful differences between what we believe, what we know and what we can prove.

Tony Webster and his clique first met Adrian Finn at school. Sex-hungry and book-hungry, they would navigate the girl-less sixth form together, trading in affectations, in-jokes, rumour and wit. Maybe Adrian was a little more serious than the others, certainly more intelligent, but they all swore to stay friends for life. Now Tony is retired. He’s had a career and a single marriage, a calm divorce. He’s certainly never tried to hurt anybody. Memory, though, is imperfect. It can always throw up surprises, as a lawyer’s letter is about to prove.

Every life is both ordinary and extraordinary, but Logan Mountstuart's - stretching across the twentieth century - is a rich tapestry of both.

But as a son, friend, lover and husband, he makes the same mistakes we all do in our search for happiness. Here, then, is the story of a life lived to the full - and a journey deep into a very human heart.

To the children, the town was their whole world. To the adults, knowing better, Derry, Maine was just their home town: familiar, well-ordered for the most part. A good place to live. It was the children who saw - and felt - what made Derry so horribly different. In the storm drains, in the sewers, IT lurked, taking on the shape of every nightmare, each one’s deepest dread. Sometimes IT reached up, seizing, tearing, killing… The adults, knowing better, knew nothing. Time passed and the children grew up, moved away. The horror of IT was deep-buried, wrapped in forgetfulness. Until they were called back, once more to confront IT as IT stirred and coiled in the sullen depths of their memories, reaching up again to make their past nightmares a terrible present reality.

Kinsella, Sophie. Confessions of a Shopaholic / Sophie Kinsella. - [London] : Black Swan, 2009. - 319 c. - [Тайный мир шопоголика].
Meet Becky Bloomwood, America’s favorite shopaholic - a young woman with a big heart, big dreams…and just one little weakness. Becky has a fabulous flat in London's trendiest neighborhood, a troupe of glamorous socialite friends, and a closet brimming with the season's must-haves. The only trouble is that she can't actually afford it - not any of it. Her job writing at “Successful Savings” not only bores her to tears, it doesn't pay much at all. And lately Becky's been chased by dismal letters from the bank - letters with large red sums she can't bear to read - and they're getting ever harder to ignore. She tries cutting back. But none of her efforts succeeds. Becky's only consolation is to buy herself something. Finally a story arises that Becky actually cares about, and her front-page article catalyzes a chain of events that will transform her life forever. Sophie Kinsella has brilliantly tapped into our collective consumer conscience to deliver a novel of our times - and a heroine who grows stronger every time she weakens. Becky's hilarious schemes to pay back her debts are as endearing as they are desperate. Her "confessions" are the perfect pick-me-up when life is hanging in the (bank) balance.

'Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird'. A lawyer's advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee's classic novel - a black man charged with the rape of a white girl.

For when kings clash, the whole land trembles.

McEwan, Ian. Atonement / Ian McEwan. - London : Vintage books : Random house, 2011. - 372 p. - [Искупление].
One day Briony Tallis sees her sister, Cecilia, plunge into the fountain in the garden of their country house. Watching her is Robbie Turner, her childhood friend who has recently come down from Cambridge. Soon the lives of all three will be changed forever. Robbie and Cecilia will cross a boundary they had not even imagined, and will become victims of the younger girl's imagination. Briony will witness mysteries, and committ a crime for which she will try to atone. “Atonement” is Ian McEwan's finest achievement. Brilliant and utterly enthralling in its depiction of childhood, love and war, England and class, at its centre is a profound exploration of shame and forgiveness, of atonement and the difficulty of absolution.

Meyer, Stephenie. Twilight / Stephenie Meyer. - Repr. ed. - London : Atom, 2008. - 434 p. - [Сумерки].
When seventeen-year-old Isabella Swan moves to Forks, Washington to live with her father she expects that her new life will be as dull as the town itself. In spite of her awkward manner and low expectations, she finds that her new classmates are drawn to this pale, dark-haired new girl in town. But not, it seems, the Cullen family. Bella is convinced that Edward Cullen in particular hates her, but she feels a strange attraction to him, although his hostility makes her feel almost physically ill.

Mitchell, David. Cloud atlas : [a novel] / David Mitchell. - [London] : Sceptre, cop. 2004. - 529, [2] с. - [Облачный атлас].
‘Souls cross ages like clouds cross skies…’ Six interlocking lives - one amazing adventure. In a narrative that circles the globe and reaches from the 19th century to a post-apocalyptic future, David Mitchell erases the boundaries of time, genre and language to offer an enthralling vision of humanity's will to power, and where it will lead us.

Moyes, Jojo. After You / J. Moyes. - London ; New York ; Ringwood : Penguin books, 2016. - 409, [1] p. - [После тебя].
The sequel to “Me Before You”. Lou Clark has lots of questions. Like how it is she's ended up working in an airport bar, spending every shift watching other people jet off to new places. Or why the flat she's owned for a year still doesn't feel like home. Whether her close-knit family can forgive her for what she did eighteen months ago. And will she ever get over the love of her life. What Lou does know for certain is that something has to change. Then, one night, it does. But does the stranger on her doorstep hold the answers Lou is searching for - or just more questions? Close the door and life continues: simple, ordered, safe. Open it and she risks everything. But Lou once made a promise to live. And if she's going to keep it, she has to invite them in…

Rowling, Joanne Kathleen. The casual vacancy / J.K. Rowling. - London : Sphere, 2014. - 503 с. - [Случайная вакансия].
When Barry Fairbrother dies in his early forties, the town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty facade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils... Pagford is not what it first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations? A big novel about a small town, ‘The Casual Vacancy’ is J.K. Rowling's first novel for adults. It is the work of a storyteller like no other.

Rowling, Joanne Kathleen. Harry Potter and the deathly hallows / J.K. Rowling. - Reiss. - London [et al.] : Bloomsbury [et al.], 2010. - 831 p.
Harry Potter is preparing to leave the Dursleys and Privet Drive for the last time.

Only by destroying Voldemort's remaining Horcruxes can Harry free himself and overcome the Dark Lord's forces of evil. Harry must leave his most loyal friends behind, and in a final perilous journey find the strength and the will to face his terrifying destiny: a deadly confrontation that is his alone to fight.

Sebold, Alice. The lovely bones : a novel / Alice Sebold. - London : Picador, 2009. - 328 p. - [Милые кости].
‘My name was Salmon, like the fish; first name, Susie. I was fourteen when I was murdered on December 6, 1973. My murderer was a man from our neighborhood.’
Watching from her place in heaven, Susie Salmon sees her suburban family devastated by her death, isolated even from one another as they try to cope with their terrible loss alone. Over the years, her friends and siblings grow up, fall in love, do all the things she never had the chance to do herself. But life is not quite finished with Susie yet…

Setterfield, Diane. The Thirteenth Tale : a novel / Diane Setterfield. - New York [etc.] : Washington Square Press, 2007. - 406, [1] р. - [Тринадцатая сказка].
Reclusive author Vida Winter, famous for her collection of twelve enchanting stories, has spent the past six decades penning a series of alternate lives for herself. Now old and ailing, she is ready to reveal the truth about her extraordinary existence and the violent and tragic past she has kept secret for so long. Calling on Margaret Lea, a young biographer troubled by her own painful history, Vida disinters the life she meant to bury for good. Margaret is mesmerized by the author's tale of gothic strangeness - featuring the beautiful and willful Isabelle, the feral twins Adeline and Emmeline, a ghost, a governess, a topiary garden and a devastating fire. Together, Margaret and Vida confront the ghosts that have haunted them while becoming, finally, transformed by the truth themselves.

Sparks, Nicholas. Message in a Bottle / Nicholas Sparks. - Repr. - London : Sphere, 2011. - 354 p. - [Послание в бутылке].
“My dearest Catherine, I miss you my darling, as I always do, but today is particularly hard because the ocean has been singing to me, and the song is that of our life together.” When a journalist Theresa Osborne finds this desperate message washed up on a Cape Cod beach, it raises questions that intrigue her. Who is the author, a man called Garrett – and who is Catherine? And what is it that has torn them apart? Theresa, wary of romance since her husband shattered her trust, finds herself unaccountably drawn to these people and their secrets, and embarks on a search that brings her to an unexpected confrontation…

Swift, Graham. Last orders / Graham Swift. - London : Picador, 2010. - 323, [2] p. - [Последние желания].
Four men once close to Jack Dodds, a London butcher, meet to carry out his peculiar last wish: to have his ashes scattered into the sea. For reasons best known to herself, Jack's widow, Amy, declines to join them. On the surface the tale of a simple if increasingly bizarre day's outing, “Last Orders” is Graham Swift's most poignant exploration of the complexity and courage of ordinary lives.

Swift, Graham. Waterland / with an introduction by Tim Binding. - London : Everyman's library, 2013. - 350 p. - [Водная страна].
Graham Swift's extraordinary masterpiece is an English epic embracing eels and incest, brewing and madness, the heartless sweep of history and a romance as tormented as Greek tragedy.
Tom Crick, a history teacher, fins himself increasingly marginalized at school where the subject to which he has devoted his life is seen as irrelevant. When his wife is arrested for snatching a baby, Tom is told he must accept early retirement. The crisis inspires a dramatic re-think in his teaching methods: he starts telling pupils his stories from his own life, which unfold into a mystery spanning two centuries.
At once a family saga and a gothic tale of provincial life, “Waterland” weaves social history, superstition and teenage love into a narrative that is as haunting and fluid as the low-lying Fens in which much of the novel is set.

Tolkien, John Ronald Reuel. The Hobbit or There and back again / . R. R. Tolkien. - New York : Ballantine books, 1985. - 287 p. - [Хоббит].
“The Hobbit” is a tale of high adventure, undertaken by a company of dwarves, in search of dragon-guarded gold. A reluctant partner in this perilous quest is Bilbo Baggins, a comfort-loving, unambitious hobbit, who surprises even himself by his resourcefulness and skill as a burglar.
Encounters with trolls, goblins, dwarves, elves and giant spiders, conversations with the dragon Smaug the Magnificent and a rather unwilling presence at the Battle of the Five Armies are some of the adventures that befall Bilbo. But there are lighter moments as well: good fellowship, welcome meals, laughter and song. It is a complete and marvellous tale in itself, but it also forms a prelude to “The Lord of the Rings”.

Weiseberger, Lauren. The Devil wears Prada / Lauren Weiseberger. - London : Harper, 2006. - 391 p. - [Дьявол носит Прада].
When Andrea first sets foot in the plush Manhattan offices of Runway she knows nothing. She's never heard of the world's most fashionable magazine, or its feared editor, Miranda Priestly. But she's going to be Miranda's assistant, a job millions of girls would die for. A year later, she knows altogether too much: that it's a sacking offence to wear anything lower than a three-inch heel to work, that you can charge cars, manicures, anything at all to the Runway account, but you must never, ever, leave your desk, or let Miranda's coffee get cold, and that at 3 a.m. on a Sunday, when your boyfriend's dumping you because you're always at work, and your best friend's just been arrested, if Miranda phones, you jump. Most of all, Andrea knows that Miranda is a monster who makes Cruella de Vil look like a fluffy bunny. But also that this is her big break, and it's going to be worth it in the end. Isn't it?

Зусак, Маркус. Книжный вор = The book thief : [учебное пособие] / Маркус Зусак ; [пер. с англ. Николая Мезина ; сост. упражнений. А. Логиновой ]. - Москва : Эксмо, 2018. - 797 с. - (Современный бестселлер : билингва)
Читателям предлагаются неадаптированный оригинальный текст и классический перевод знаменитого романа Маркуса Зусака "Книжный вор". Это история о жизни и смерти. О силе слова и цене молчания. О событиях исторического масштаба - и о том, как один человек меняет мир. Роман завораживает и ярким сюжетом, и манерой повествования, и неожиданным выбором рассказчика. Пронзительные трагические ноты переплетаются в нем с пьянящим ощущением полноты жизни, какое бывает только в детстве.

Абигнейл, Фрэнк Уильям. Поймай меня, если сможешь = Catch me if You can : [книга для чтения на английском языке] / Frank W. Abagnale with Stan Redding ; адапт., сокр. и слов. Н. В. Беспаловой. - Санкт-Петербург : Антология, 2017. - 189, [1] с.
Журналисты провозгласили Фрэнка Абигнейла величайшим мошенником ХХ столетия, самым дерзким аферистом и талантливым мастером перевоплощений и банковских махинаций. Полицейские всех 50 штатов Америки и 26 европейских государств безуспешно пытались поймать его в течение пяти лет. В своей автобиографической книге автор откровенно и с юмором рассказывает о том, как ему, подростку, не окончившему даже школы, удалось довести до совершенства свой талант одурачивать банки, авиакомпании, университеты и прочие учреждения и безнаказанно ускользать от полиции и ФБР. В книге представлен сокращённый и адаптированный текст уровня Intermediate.

Блейк, Майкл. Танцующий с волками = Dancing with wolves : [книга для чтения на английском языке] / Майкл Блейк ; адапт., сокращ. и слов.: И. Б. Загородняя. - Санкт-Петербург : Антология, 2016. - 189, [1] с.
По признанию автора - американского сценариста и прозаика Майкла Блейка - идея написания книги принадлежит не ему, а его другу - Кевину Костнеру. Впоследствии известный актёр стал режиссёром экранизированной версии романа и исполнил в картине главную роль. Действие романа «Танцующий с волками» происходит во время гражданской войны в США. Лейтенант американской армии, отважный Джон Данбар, оказывается в заброшенном форте, волею обстоятельств, в полном одиночестве. Постепенно он знакомится с индейцами и заводит с ними дружбу. Со временем героя очаровывают простые, природные законы их существования. Жизнь индейцев лишена политических интриг, они берутся за оружие лишь для того, чтобы защитить свою землю, своих жён и детей. Они не убивают животных ради забавы, а лес для них - священное место. Наступает момент, когда Джон Данбар принимает решение стать одним из них. В книге представлен сокращённый и адаптированный текст уровня Pre-Intermediate.

Голден, Артур. Мемуары гейши = Memoirs of a geisha : [книга для чтения на английском языке] / Артур Голден ; адапт., сокращ. и слов.: И. Б. Загородняя. - Санкт-Петербург : Антология, 2016. - 255 с.
Роман «Мемуары гейши» был написан американским писателем и специалистом в области японской истории, искусства и культуры. Действие происходит в Японии в период с 20-х до 50-х годов ХХ века. В центре повествования - драматичная и трогательная история о судьбе дочери бедного рыбака. Несмотря на многочисленные жизненные испытания, главной героине удалось осуществить свои самые заветные мечты и не только стать образованным человеком, заняв заметное место в японской культурной традиции гейш, но и обрести настоящую любовь. В книге представлен сокращённый и адаптированный текст уровня Intermediate.

Грум, Уинстон. Форрест Гамп = Forrest Gump : [книга для чтения на английском языке] / Уинстон Грум ; адапт., сокр. и слов.: И. Б. Загородняя. - Санкт-Петербург : Антология, 2017. - 127 с.
Форрест Гамп - наивный и доверчивый человек, сохранивший незамутнённый детский взгляд на мир, - рассказывает на страницах романа историю своей жизни. Это необычное повествование, полное острой сатиры и несентиментального романтизма, где в непосредственном восприятии героя отражаются страницы истории Америки 60-70-х годов ХХ века. В книге представлен сокращённый и адаптированный текст уровня Intermediate.

Ирвинг, Джон. Правила виноделов = The cider house rules : [книга для чтения на английском языке] / Джон Ирвинг ; адапт., сокр. и слов.: И. Б. Загородняя. - Санкт-Петербург : Антология, 2015. - 223 с.
Действие романа Джона Ирвинга, современного классика американской литературы, начинается в Новой Англии в 1920-е годы. В сиротском приюте, который возглавляет доктор Ларч, действует негласный моральный кодекс - правила любви и сострадания. Здесь воспитывается и учится всем премудростям медицины сирота Гомер Уэллс. Однако наступает момент, когда юноша покидает приют, познаёт любовь и знакомится с другими правилами. Перед ним встаёт вопрос: «По каким правилам следует жить в этом мире?» Для широкого круга изучающих английский язык. Текст сокращён и адаптирован. Уровень Intermediate.

Капоте, Трумэн. Завтрак у Тиффани : и избранные рассказы = Breakfast at Tiffany’s : and selected stories / Трумен Капоте ; [адапт., сокр. и словарь В. Н. Беспаловой]. - Санкт-Петербург : Антология, 2017. - 127, [1] с.
Собранные в книге произведения Трумэна Капоте написаны в разные годы и опубликованы в разных сборниках, но их объединяет одно место действия - Нью-Йорк, который сам становится действующим лицом повествования. Реалистичность описания городских улиц и пейзажей, сопоставимая по точности с путеводителем, сочетается с призрачной, порой неправдоподобной и даже мистической атмосферой, в которой реальность и внутренние переживания героев настолько переплетены, что у читателя возникает сомнение в реальности самих происходящих событий. Все герои писателя, изображённые с тонким психологизмом, - это неустроенные и одинокие люди в поисках себя и своего места в жизни. Наряду с одним из самых известных произведений автора новеллы «Завтрак у Тиффани», в книгу включены три рассказа: «Мириам», «Злой дух» и «Закрой последнюю дверь». В книге представлен сокращённый и адаптированный текст уровня Intermediate.

Райс, Энн. Интервью с вампиром = Interview with the vampire : [книга для чтения на английском языке] / Энн Райс ; адапт., сокр. и слов.: А. В. Шитова. - Санкт-Петербург : Антология, 2016. - 127 с.
Однажды вечером, в поисках скандальной истории, молодой журналист договаривается о встрече с таинственным незнакомцем по имени Луи, изъявившим желание поведать миру о своей невероятной двухсотлетней жизни. К изумлению журналиста, незнакомец оказывается настоящим вампиром, который, не таясь, рассказывает о том, действительно ли вампиры боятся креста и чеснока, могут ли они войти в церковь, видят ли сны и способны ли испытывать любовь. Действуя все эти годы вопреки правилам, переживая потери, творя зло, одновременно борясь с ним, бессмертный Луи постепенно приходит к пониманию неоспоримой ценности короткой человеческой жизни. Однако, несмотря на свою трагичность, история вампира производит на молодого журналиста совершенно неожиданный эффект. В книге представлен сокращённый и адаптированный текст уровня Pre-Intermediate.

Фитч, Дженет. Белый олеандр = White Oleander : [книга для чтения на английском языке] / Дженет Фитч ; адапт., сокр. и слов.: А. В. Шитова. - Санкт-Петербург : Антология, 2016. - 158 с.
Юная и талантливая Астрид живёт в тени своей матери-поэтессы, неприступной светской львицы, Снежной королевы бомонда.

Попадая из одной приёмной семьи в другую, взрослеющая Астрид становится не только невольной зрительницей, но и актрисой театра непростых взаимоотношений мужчины и женщины.
