Underworld USA constitue la troisième partie de la trilogie de James Ellroy, où se dévoile en trois moments-clefs la construction d´une Amérique sombre, pantin effrayant dont les fils sont tirés depuis les profondeurs de la terre. Entremêlant les personnages historiques de la présidence de Nixon, avec la plus inventive des fictions, Underworld USA livre un portrait panoramique et paranoïaque d´une déchéance annoncée, celle de l´Amérique des vainqueurs, de l´image lisse d´un monde d´illusions, voué au suicide. Paru en 2010, Underworld USA est le treizième roman de James Ellroy. 1. French. Cédric Zimmerlin. http://samples.audible.de/bk/edth/000084/bk_edth_000084_sample.mp3.

The year is 2075, and the vast majority of humanity is dead. The global outbreak of a new strain of virus wiped out over 99% of the population. The lone hope rests on the slim, unready shoulders of Dr. Justin Kaes and a small team of specialists from the Center for Disease Control. The researchers have discovered a cure for the plague in the blood of a cantankerous 102 year old. But there´s one minor problem: the old man couldn´t care less whether humanity lives or dies. And he most certainly doesn´t feel like going on a road trip to sunny California. On the way to the coast lie murderous tribes, cults, voracious animals, and the toxic remains of civilization. They face a world gone backwards, technology and industry reduced to rusting garbage. Their mission seems doomed. But there are a few decent souls still out there, citizens of Plaguesville, USA. 1.

Reed King’s amazingly audacious audiobook is something of a cross between L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz, Douglas Adams’ A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, and Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One. In Reed King’s wildly imaginative and possibly prescient debut, the US has dissolved in the wake of environmental disasters and the catastrophic policies of its final president. It is 2085, and Truckee Wallace, a factory worker in Crunchtown 407 (formerly Little Rock, Arkansas, before the secessions), has no grand ambitions besides maybe, possibly, losing his virginity someday. But when Truckee is thrust unexpectedly into the spotlight, he is tapped by the president for a sensitive political mission: to deliver a talking goat across the continent. The fate of the world depends upon it. The problem is - Truckee’s not sure it’s worth it. Joined on the road by an android who wants to be human and a former convict lobotomized in Texas, Truckee will navigate an environmentally depleted and lawless continent with devastating - and hilarious - parallels to our own, dodging body pickers and Elvis worshipers and logo girls, body subbers, and VR addicts. Elvis willing, he may even lose his virginity. FKA USA is the epic audiobook we’ve all been waiting for about the American end of times, with its unavoidable sense of being on the wrong end of the roller-coaster ride. It is a masterwork of ambition, humor, and satire with the power to make us cry, despair, and laugh out loud all at once. It is a tour de force unlike anything else you will listen to this year. 1.

Le Audioricette sono un nuovo modo per scoprire e approfondire la preparazione, le caratteristiche e la storia dei tuoi piatti preferiti. Ogni audiobook contiene la spiegazione passo passo di cinque semplici e gustose ricette per stuzzicare la tua fantasia in cucina e una ricca e approfondita sezione sulla storia e le caratteristiche dei piatti. La cucina degli Stati Uniti riflette la sua storia variegata. La colonizzazione europea delle Americhe ha portato all´introduzione di un notevole numero di ingredienti e stili di cucina, che hanno continuato a espandersi nel XIX e XX secolo, proporzionalmente al flusso di immigrati provenienti da molte nazioni straniere. Tale afflusso ha sviluppato una ricca diversità nella preparazione del cibo in tutto il Paese, tanto che si può dire che la cucina statunitense moderna sia un ´´melting pot´´ di buona parte di tutte le altre tradizioni gastronomiche mondiali. Qui esploreremo la storia della cucina USA e vedremo tanto le specialità quanto le curiosità, in un viaggio immaginario lungo le sue strade senza fine, tra pianure, deserti, montagne e foreste, senza tralasciare le grandi metropoli. Buon appetito! Enjoy your meal! 1. Italian. Francesca Di Modugno. http://samples.audible.de/bk/arit/000215/bk_arit_000215_sample.mp3.

Jefferson Parker, Lawrence Block, Terrance Hayes, Jerome Charyn, Jeffery Deaver, Maggie Estep, Bayo Ojikutu, Tim McLoughlin, Barbara DeMarco-Barrett, Reed Farrel Coleman, Megan Abbott, Elyssa East, James W.

Rozan, Asali Solomon, William Kent Krueger, Tim Broderick, Bharti Kirchner, Karen Karbo, and Lisa Sandlin. ´´From the start, the heart and soul of Akashic Books has been dark, provocative, well-crafted tales from the disenfranchised. I learned early on that writings from outside the mainstream almost necessarily coincide with a mood and spirit of noir, and are composed by authors whose life circumstances often place them in environs exposed to crime.... This volume serves up a top-shelf selection of stories from the series set in the United States. USA Noir only scratches the surface, however, and every single volume has gems on offer.´´ (Johnny Temple, from the Introduction) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Pete Bradbury, James Colby, L. J.

Ce mai e si cartea asta? Jurnal, de fapt, nu e, tratat nu e, roman nu e. Cel mai corect ar fi sa spun ca este explozia (neincadrabila) a fiintei mele pe parcursul unui an. Dar ce lucru formidabil: aceasta explozie ma reda mie insumi intreg.´´ (Gabriel Liiceanu) Please note: This audiobook is in Romanian. 1. Romanian.
