This paperback edition has the classic black cover featuring Tolkien's own design and includes the definitive edition of the text. The Company of the Ring is sundered. Frodo and Sam continue their journey alone down the great River Anduin - alone, that is, save for the mysterious creeping figure that follows wherever they go...JRR Tolkien's great work of imaginative fiction has been labelled both a heroic romance and a classic fantasy fiction. By turns comic and homely, epic and diabolic, the narrative moves through countless changes of scene and character in an imaginary world which is totally convincing in its detail. Tolkien created a vast new mythology in an invented world which has proved timeless in its appeal. Part of a set of three paperbacks, this popular edition is once again available in its classic black livery designed by Tolkien himself. Скрыть Показать весь текст

Роман «1984» — вершина творчества Джорджа Оруэлла. В нем показано общество, в котором люди четко разделены на классы: верхний, привилегированный, партийная верхушка; средний, не имеющий права ни на что, находящийся под постоянным прицелом телекамер и подслушивающих устройств, лишенный общения и эмоций, делающий механическую работу по регулярному переписыванию истории, обделенный во всем; низший — как бы пролетариат. В этом обществе искореняется любая мысль; человекживет в страхе наказания, которое неизбежно последует за любую провинность. Такое общество уничтожает в человеке все человеческое. Чтобы человек меньше думал, примитивизируется язык, переписываются книги и газеты, поощряется доносительство, предательство — даже своих близких. Не остается ничего святого и, соответственно, ничего, для чего хотелось бы жить. Этот роман — захватывающее, но страшное повествование о том, что могло бы произойти и в СССР времен Сталина, если бы история повернулась иначе. В книге приводится... Скрыть Показать весь текст
