O Prazer da Leitura (58)

I'm one of the undeserving poor: that's what I am. Think of what that means to a man. It means that he's up agen middle class morality all the time. If there's anything going, and I put in for a bit of it, it's always the same story: "You're undeserving; so you can't have it. Buy my needs is as great as the most deserving widow's that ever got money out of six different charities in one week for the death of the same husband. I don't need less than a deserving man: I need more. I don't eat less hearty than him; and I drink a lot more. I want a bit of amusement, cause I'm a thinking man. I want cheerfulness and a song and a band when I feel low. Well, they charge me just the same for everything as they charge the deserving. What is middle class morality? Just an excuse for never giving me anything.
Pygmalion, George Bernard Shaw

Dragons at Crumbling Castle
Terry Pratchett 
Dragons at Crumbling Castle é um livro de contos cujo título vem da primeira história. Ao longo do livro existem pequenas ilustrações que ajudam a contar as histórias e a linguagem é divertida para as crianças mais novas.

Dragons have invaded Crumbling Castle, and all of King Arthur’s knights are either on holiday or visiting their grannies. It’s a disaster!
Luckily, there’s a spare suit of armour and a very small boy called Ralph who’s willing to fill it. Together with Fortnight the Friday knight and Fossfiddle the wizard, Ralph sets out to defeat the fearsome fire-breathers.
But there's a teeny weeny surprise in store . . .
Fourteen fantastically funny stories from master storyteller Sir Terry Pratchett, full of time travel and tortoises, monsters and mayhem!
‘So funny I dropped my spoon laughing!’ – King Arthur

The Carpet People
Terry Pratchett 
The Carpet People foi publicado pela primeira vez em 1971, mas esta edição contém textos actualizados com a cor original, ilustrações a preto e branco e uma história exclusiva do autor quando tinha dezassete anos.

In the beginning, there was nothing but endless flatness. Then came the Carpet... That’s the old story everyone knows and loves. But now the Carpet is home to many different tribes and peoples, and there’s a new story in the making. The story of Fray, sweeping a trail of destruction across the Carpet. The story of power-hungry mouls—and of two brothers who set out on an adventure to end all adventures when their village is flattened.
It’s a story that will come to a terrible end - if someone doesn't do something about it. If everyone doesn’t do something about it...

Half the World (Shattered Sea)
Joe Abercrombie
Shattered Sea é uma trilogia para jovens adultos escrita por Joe Abercrombie. Half a King é o primeiro volume publicado em 2014. Half the World é o segundo volume publicado este mês e Half a War, o terceiro volume, deve sair ainda este ano também. O autor de fantasia dedica-se agora a um público mais juvenil numa história que George R. R. Martin descreveu como “a fast-paced tale of betrayal and revenge that grabbed me from page 1 and refused to let go.”

Sometimes a girl is touched by Mother War. Thorn is such a girl. Desperate to avenge her dead father, she lives to fight. But she has been named a murderer by the very man who trained her to kill.
Sometimes a woman becomes a warrior. She finds herself caught up in the schemes of Father Yarvi, Gettland’s deeply cunning minister. Crossing half the world to find allies against the ruthless High King, she learns harsh lessons of blood and deceit.
Sometimes a warrior becomes a weapon. Beside her on the journey is Brand, a young warrior who hates to kill, a failure in his eyes and hers, but with one chance at redemption.
And weapons are made for one purpose. Will Thorn forever be a pawn in the hands of the powerful, or can she carve her own path?

Arwen Elys Dayton

Seeker é o primeiro livro de uma série que a autora Arwen Elys Dayton está a escrever, uma história de fantasia em que o mundo da protagonista muda radicalmente no momento em que ela se torna numa Seeker.

The night Quin Kincaid takes her Oath, she will become what she has trained to be her entire life. She will become a Seeker. This is her legacy, and it is an honor. As a Seeker, Quin will fight beside her two closest companions, Shinobu and John, to protect the weak and the wronged. Together they will stand for light in a shadowy world.

And she’ll be with the boy she loves–who’s also her best friend. But the night Quin takes her Oath, everything changes. Being a Seeker is not what she thought. Her family is not what she thought. Even the boy she loves is not who she thought. And now it’s too late to walk away.

Smith of Wootton Major
J. R. R. Tolkien
É um conjunto de contos numa edição maior que contém alguns contos nunca antes publicados. Smith of Wootton Major foi publicado numa pequena edição pela primeira vez em 1967 com ilustrações a preto e branco de Pauline baynes. Agora, quase quarenta anos depois, surge esta nova edição que inclui: 
Tolkien's own account of the genesis of the story; Tolkien's Time-Scheme and Characters; Tolkien's discussion of the shadowy but important figure of "Grandfather Rider" and a lengthy, 10,000-word essay on the nature of Faery; Early draft versions and alternative endings; Foreword by the editor, containing a brief history of the story's composition and publication, and its connection to Tolkien's other published stories.

Red Queen
Victoria Aveyard
Parece que esta história é uma espécie de cruzamento entre Graceling e The Selection, o que não sei se será bom, principalmente no que a The Selection diz respeito, mas enfim, pode ser que não seja tão fútil. A protagonista, Mare, de dezassete anos é uma rapariga comum até descobrir que tem um poder que a puxa para uma intriga no palácio real e que a pode colocar em perigo.

Mare Barrow's world is divided by blood - those with common, Red blood serve the Silver - blooded elite, who are gifted with superhuman abilities. Mare is a Red, scraping by as a thief in a poor, rural village, until a twist of fate throws her in front of the Silver court. Before the king, princes, and all the nobles, she discovers she has an ability of her own.
To cover up this impossibility, the king forces her to play the role of a lost Silver princess and betroths her to one of his own sons. As Mare is drawn further into the Silver world, she risks everything and uses her new position to help the Scarlet Guard - a growing Red rebellion - even as her heart tugs her in an impossible direction. One wrong move can lead to her death, but in the dangerous game she plays, the only certainty is betrayal.

The Originals: The Rise
Julie Plec
Este livro faz parte de uma trilogia que serve como prequela à série The Originals, um spinoff da série The Vampire Diaries (ambas do canal The CW) baseasa numa série de livros de fantasia da autora L. J. Smith. Em The Originals: The Rise, seguimos as aventuras do irmão Mikaelson depois de escaparem a um passado tenebroso, enaquanto tentam permanecer juntos no presente como uma família poderosa e unida. Parece que as tramas são sempre as mesmas e a história dos irmãos se repete vezes sem conta. A série já vai na segunda temporada.

Arriving in New Orleans in 1722, Original vampire siblings Klaus, Elijah and Rebekah Mikaelson believe they've escaped their dangerous past. But the city is lawless, a haven for witches and werewolves unwilling to share territory. The siblings are at their mercy…especially after Klaus meets the beautiful and mysterious Vivianne. Her impending marriage is key to ending the war between the supernatural factions - and Klaus's attraction to her could destroy the uneasy alliance. As Elijah works toward securing a piece of the city for his family, and Rebekah fights her unexpected feelings for a French captain, will Klaus's volatile desires bring their world crashing down—and tear them apart for good?

The Eye of the World: The Graphic Novel, Volume One
Robert Jordan
É a adaptação da famosa série de fantasia de Robert Jordan para banda desenhada e conta com os primeiros oito números de The Wheel of Time, o primeiro volume da série. A adaptação é de Chuck Dixon e a ilustração de Chase Conley.

The Eye of the World: The Graphic Novel, Volume One begins Robert Jordan's epic tale by introducing Rand al'Thor and his friends Matrim and Perrin at home in Emond's Field, shortly before the spring festival. Moiraine Damodred and Lan Mandragoran appear and almost before Rand knows it, he's fleeing his home village with Moiraine, Lan, his friends, and Egwene al'Vere, the innkeeper's daughter, who wishes to become an Aes Sedai. The conclusion of this volume leaves the travelers on the road to Baerlon, barely ahead of the pursuing Trollocs and Draghkar. But even as they run for their lives, Moiraine and Lan begin to teach the young people what they will need to know to survive in this dangerous world.

City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments)
Cassandra Clare
Só li o primeiro livro desta série e bastou-me ler o primeiro parágrafo sobre o livro para apanhar um grande spoiler. City of Heavenly Fire é o sexto e último livro da série The Mortal Instruments, onde Clary e os seus amigos lutam contra um grande mal.

Sebastian Morgenstern is on the move, systematically turning Shadowhunter against Shadowhunter. Bearing the Infernal Cup, he transforms Shadowhunters into creatures out of nightmare, tearing apart families and lovers as the ranks of his Endarkened army swell.
The embattled Shadowhunters withdraw to Idris - but not even the famed demon towers of Alicante can keep Sebastian at bay. And with the Nephilim trapped in Idris, who will guard the world against demons?
When one of the greatest betrayals the Nephilim have ever known is revealed, Clary, Jace, Isabelle, Simon, and Alec must flee - even if their journey takes them deep into the demon realms, where no Shadowhunter has set foot before, and from which no human being has ever returned...
Love will be sacrificed and lives lost in the terrible battle for the fate of the word in the thrilling final installment of the classic urban fantasy series The Mortal Instruments!

Rise of the King
Companions Codex 2
Legend of Drizzt 25
R. A. Salvatore 
Depois do primeiro volume da trilogia Compacions Codex, Night of the Hunter, chega o segundo volume, Rise of the King sobre o o rei anão Bruenor Battlehammer, uma das persomagens preferidas dos fãs de R. A. Salvatore. 

A trilogia ficará completa com Vengeance of the Iron Dwarf, todas histórias dentro mundo da série Legend of Drizzt.

Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances
Neil Gaiman
Antologia de Contos 
O aclamado escritor Neil Gaiman publica mais uma antologia de contos depois de Smoke and Mirrors e Fragile Things. Nesta nova antologia, o autor perfura o véu da realidade e revela o mundo enigmático e sombrio que existe por baixo. Em Trigger Warning é possível encontrar contos já antes publicados, hisórias, versos e um conto muito especial de Doctor Who que foi escrito para o 50º aniversário da famosa série em 2013 e ainda um conto inédito, "Black Dog", que revisita o mundo de American Gods.

Trigger Warning explores the masks we all wear and the people we are beneath them to reveal our vulnerabilities and our truest selves. Here is a rich cornucopia of horror and ghosts stories, science fiction and fairy tales, fabulism and poetry that explore the realm of experience and emotion. In "Adventure Story" - a thematic companion to The Ocean at the End of the Lane - Gaiman ponders death and the way people take their stories with them when they die. His social media experience "A Calendar of Tales" are short takes inspired by replies to fan tweets about the months of the year--stories of pirates and the March winds, an igloo made of books, and a Mother's Day card that portends disturbances in the universe. Gaiman offers his own ingenious spin on Sherlock Holmes in his award-nominated mystery tale "The Case of Death and Honey". And "Click-Clack the Rattlebag" explains the creaks and clatter we hear when we're all alone in the darkness.

A sophisticated writer whose creative genius is unparalleled, Gaiman entrances with his literary alchemy, transporting us deep into the realm of imagination, where the fantastical becomes real and the everyday incandescent. Full of wonder and terror, surprises and amusements, Trigger Warning is a treasury of delights that engage the mind, stir the heart, and shake the soul from one of the most unique and popular literary artists of our day.

Vencedores 2015

Nos Óscares nada de novo, embora este ano possa dizer que ganhou um bom filme. Não era o melhor do ano, esse nem chegou às nomeações, mas Birdman era o melhor dos nomeados. Na categoria de representação a única dúvida era sobre o Melhor Actor e, embora o Michael Keaton merecesse (provavelmente nunca mais vai ter outra oportunidade), a estatueta foi para Eddie Redmayne num dos papéis mais emocionantes do ano. De resto, pouco aconteceu em mais uma cerimónia cujo conceito não muda muito ao longo dos anos, mesmo o apresentador não conseguiu abrilhantar a cerimónia. Os melhores momentos foram os musicais com destaque para a Lady Gaga e a música "Everything is Awesome" do Lego Movie. Para o ano há mais do mesmo!

Fantastic Four

Cinema Fantástico

O reboot do filme Fantastic Four já tem trailer e faz lembrar um pouco o trailer de Interstellar. Para mim não havia a necessidade de fazerem um reboot do filme, apesar de os dois que foram feitos em 2005 (Fantastic Four) e em 2007 (Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer) terem sido bastante fracos. Já o cast desses filme é difícil de repetir, os actores tinham sido muito bem escolhidos, só foi pena não terem um bom argumento e melhores efeitos especiais. Vamos lá ver se a nova abordagem será mais interessante e melhor que os anteriores. Abaixo, fica o primeiro trailer do filme.
