    Who are you? What have we done to each other? What will we do? Just how well can you ever know the person you love? These are the questions that Nick Dunne must ask himself on the morning of his fifth wedding anniversary, when his wife Amy suddenly disappears. The police immediately suspect Nick. Amy's friends reveal that she was afraid of him, that she kept secrets from him. He swears it isn't true. A police examination of his computer shows strange searches. He says they aren't his. And then there are the persistent calls on his mobile phone.

    In The Signature of All Things, Elizabeth Gilbert returns to fiction, inserting her inimitable voice into an enthralling story of love, adventure and discovery. Spanning much of the 18th and 19th centuries, the novel follows the fortunes of the extraordinary Whittaker family as led by the enterprising Henry Whittaker - a poor-born Englishman who makes a great fortune in the South American quinine trade, eventually becoming the richest man in Philadelphia.

    Story

    I read many books, many of them stick with me in some ways, but for most I forget the plot easily. This book was different though, as the story was really unusual and interesting. It also helps that it was a book that made you think about how easily we complain when we really shouldn't. I also liked how life was portrayed: It can be really tough, but there is so much to learn and understand, that we never must stop living it to the fullest no matter the circumstances.

  • If This Isn't Nice, What Is?: Advice for the Young

    Story

    Master storyteller and satirist Kurt Vonnegut was one of the most in-demand commencement speakers of his time. For each occasion, Vonnegut’s words were unfailingly unique, insightful, and witty, and they stayed with audience members long after graduation. As edited by Dan Wakefield, this book reads like a narrative in the unique voice that made Vonnegut a hero to readers and listeners of all ages. At times hilarious, razor-sharp, freewheeling, and deeply serious, these reflections are ideal for anyone undergoing what Vonnegut would call their "long-delayed puberty ceremony".

    What did you love best about If This Isn't Nice, What Is??

    The man! I love his wisdom, his simple way of telling truths we all need to hear. He is funny, also when he talks about serious topics


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Vonnegut himself


    What did you learn from If This Isn't Nice, What Is? that you would use in your daily life?

    I wrote a blog post after listening to it, about following your dreams. I felt inspired to talk about my knowledge in psychology, and thought I must learn to say important things like he does. I will listen to it again, to use some of the questions he asks, with clients

    In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

    What made the experience of listening to Inferno the most enjoyable?

    I like Paul Michael`s way of reading the book, and off course: The book itself


    What did you like best about this story?

    The tempo. I figured out some of the "surprises" and I loved that. I also liked the many references to Dante`s inferno and actually wanted to read it afterwards. I was also interested in the idea: What if someone really wants to "kill" people because we become so many people on earth?


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The end when they arrive in turkey

    Internationally renowned psychiatrist, Viktor E. Frankl, endured years of unspeakable horror in Nazi death camps. During, and partly because of his suffering, Dr. Frankl developed a revolutionary approach to psychotherapy known as logotherapy. At the core of his theory is the belief that man's primary motivational force is his search for meaning.
