    “I had not expected the suffering. A night of racking anguish, sickness and fainting. I became insensible and woke languid in the darkness. I shall never forget that dawn, and the strange horror of seeing that my hands had become as clouded glass, and watching them grow clearer and thinner as the day went by. My limbs became glassy, the bones and arteries faded, vanished, and the little white nerves went last. At last only the dead tips of the fingernails remained, pallid and white. I went and stared at nothing in my shaving glass. I had become an invisible man.” Vicki Morgan’ s entertaining narration of this science fiction classic is a great introduction to the fantastic world of H.G. Wells and the brilliant imagination, the psychological insight, and startlingly accurate scientific predictions that made him one of the most influential writers of his day.

    Alison Larkin selects and introduces fairytales of strong, independent, brave, at times irreverent girls and women who take charge of their lives, go on their own adventures, rescue themselves and sometimes even save the men they love. These are not stories of helpless females shut up in high towers waiting around for a handsome man to rescue them while they sleep for years or from brushing their golden hair a lot. These heroines have far more to distinguish them than the fact that they (sometimes) end up married to a prince. Stories included: The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen, Molly Whuppie and the Double-faced Giant by Flora Annie Steel, A Pottle of Brains by Joseph Jacobs, Cap O’ Rushes by Joseph Jacobs, Hansel and Gretel by the Brothers Grimm, Mr. Fox by Joseph Jacobs, Clever Grethel by the Brothers Grimm, Kari Woodengown by P.C. Absjornsen, The Twelve Dancing Princesses by the Brothers Grimm, Felicia and the Pot of Pinks by Madame la Comtesse d’Aulnoy, The Iron Stove by Miss Mulock, The Hedley Kow by Joseph Jacobs, The Six Sillies by Monsieur Lemoine, Baba Yaga a Russian folk tale re-told by Verra Xenophontovna Kalamatiano De Blumenthal, The Old Woman in the Woods by the Brothers Grimm, The Idle Spinner by the Brothers Grimm, The Twelve Brothers by the Brothers Grimm, Frederick and Catherine by the Brothers Grimm, Little Red Cap by the Brothers Grimm, Beauty and The Beast by Marie Le Prince de Beaumont.

    Herland is a utopian novel from 1915, written by feminist Charlotte Perkins Gilman. The book describes an isolated society composed entirely of women, who reproduce via parthenogenesis (asexual reproduction). The result is an ideal social order: free of war, conflict, and domination. The story is told from the perspective of Vandyck “Van” Jennings, a student of sociology who, along with two friends (Terry O. Nicholson and Jeff Margrave), forms an expedition party to explore an area of uncharted land where it is rumored lives a society consisting entirely of women. The three friends do not entirely believe the rumors because they are unable to think of a way how human reproduction could occur without males. The men speculate about what a society of women would be like, each guessing differently based on the stereotype of women which he holds most dear: Jeff regarding women as things to be served and protected; Terry viewing them as things to be conquered and won.

    Jack London reveals the secrets of surviving as a hobo in the late-nineteenth century. Before he became a best-selling author, London spent time traveling on the railways of North America - catching trains, dodging conductors, spending time in jail, lying his way into meals and out of trouble. His experience formed the basis of his storytelling skills, and gave him an enduring compassion for the underdogs in society. The Road is a collection of essays and tales which chronicles this formative period in his life. Sometimes humorous, sometimes heartbreaking, but always compelling, The Road will take you to a forgotten chapter of North American life.

    In his most famous and controversial book, Utopia, Thomas More imagines a perfect island nation where thousands live in peace and harmony, men and women are both educated, and all property is communal. Through dialogue and correspondence between the protagonist Raphael Hythloday and his friends and contemporaries, More explores the theories behind war, political disagreements, social quarrels, and wealth distribution and imagines the day-to-day lives of those citizens enjoying freedom from fear, oppression, violence, and suffering. This vision of an ideal world is also a scathing satire of Europe in the sixteenth century and has been hugely influential since publication, shaping utopian fiction even today.

    “Oye, ¿Has leído Cumbres Borrascosas?” Nadie debería contestar que no a esta pregunta. Si no has tenido tiempo, ahora es el momento de escuchar esta maravillosa obra como audiolibro dramatizado en español. Te aseguramos que, si aprovechas un viaje o un paseo para escucharlo, no te arrepentirás. Hay relaciones que desde el inicio paracen estar destinadas a ser apasionadas y complejas, pero pocas como la que se entabla entre Catherine y Heathcliff, a quienes los designios del cruel destino… Cumbres Borrascosas es el nombre de la casa de campo, perdida en los páramos de Yorkshire, donde se centra toda la acción de la historia. Ésta tiene dos narradores El señor Lockwood, viajero que alquila al señor Heathcliff la casa llamada “la granja de los tordos”, muy cercana a Cumbres borrascosas. Nelly Dean, ama de llaves que nos cuenta cómo, treinta años atrás, el dueño de Cumbres borrascosas, el señor Earnshaw, regresa de Liverpool acompañado de un niño huérfano que encontró allí, vagando por las calles. El corazón del señor Earnshaw se enterneció, y decidió traer consigo a Heathcliff, que así se llamaba el huérfano, y criarlo junto a sus hijos Catherine y Hindley. Con el paso del tiempo, surgirá una apasionada historia de amor entre Heathcliff y Catherine, pero el desarrollo de los acontecimientos, muertes, matrimonios… van a determinar que esa pasión acabe destruyéndolos a los dos, y a muchos otros a su alrededor. Heathcliff es uno de los personajes más interesantes de la literatura inglesa, y más aún, de la literatura universal: su carácter indomable, su pasión, sus constantes batallas internas y su forma de sobrellevar los acontecimientos, van hacer de él el gran protagonista de esta obra, por méritos propios. Este audiolibro hace brillar el corazón.
