Метро 2035
Третья мировая стерла человечество с лица Земли. Планета опустела. Мегаполисы обращены в прах и пепел. Железные дороги ржавеют. Спутники одиноко болтаются на орбите. Радио молчит на всех частотах. Выжили только те, кто, услышав сирены тревоги, успел добежать до дверей московского метро. Там, на глубине в десятки метров, на станциях и в туннелях, люди пытаются переждать конец света. Там они создали себе новый мирок вместо потерянного огромного мира. Они цепляются за жизнь изо всех сил и отказываются сдаваться. Они мечтают вернуться наверх - однажды, когда радиационный фон от ядерных бомбардировок спадет. И не оставляют надежды найти других выживших...
"Метро 2035" продолжает - и завершает историю Артема из первой книги культовой трилогии. Эту книгу миллионы читателей ждали долгие десять лет, и права на перевод иностранные издатели выкупили задолго до того, как роман был окончен. При этом "2035" - книга независимая, и именно с нее можно начать посвящение в сагу, которая покорила Россию и весь мир.

"Я собираюсь поставить привычный и знакомый многим мир "Метро" с ног на голову, так что тех, кто читал "Метро 2033", ждёт масса открытий. А тех, кто начинает с "Метро 2035", - остросюжетный роман, который не даст им соскучиться..."

Ирвинг Стоун Жажда жизни
Жажда жизни
Винсент Ван Гог — гениальный безумец, при жизни испытавший и презрение критиков живописи, и полное непонимание собратьев по кисти, а после смерти признанный великим художником. Его манера писать казалась странной и нелепой даже привыкшим к творческим экспериментам обитателям Монмартра. Его либо равнодушно отвергали, либо цинично использовали женщины. Над ним посмеивались друзья. Его жалели родные... Именно Ван Гогу посвящен самый известный биографический роман Ирвинга Стоуна, который выдержал более 30 изданий только на родном языке и был переведен на 30 иностранных языков. В процессе его создания Стоун, по его собственным словам, "прошел пешком по югу Франции, жил в психиатрической больнице, куда поместили Ван Гога, и, наконец, спал в той же самой комнате и на той же постели в маленькой гостинице в Овере в годовщину его смерти"...

Акунин Борис Азиатская европеизация. История Российского Государства. Царь Петр Алексеевич
Азиатская европеизация. История Российского Государства. Царь Петр Алексеевич
  • Продолжение самого масштабного и амбициозного проекта десятилетия от Бориса Акунина!
  • История Отечества в фактах и человеческих судьбах!
  • Уникальный формат: мегатекст состоит из параллельных текстов: история России в восьми томах + исторические авантюрные повести.
  • Суммарный тираж изданных за четыре года книг проекта - более 1 500 000 экземпляров!
  • Тома серии богаты иллюстрациями: цветные в исторических томах, стильная графика - в художественных!
  • Велик ли был Петр Великий? Есть лишь четыре крупных исторических деятеля, отношение к которым окрашено сильными эмоциями: Иван Грозный, Ленин, Сталин - и Петр I. Доблести Петра восхвалялись и при монархии, и в СССР, и в постсоветской России. "Государственникам" этот правитель импонирует как создатель мощной военной державы, "либералам" - как западник, повернувший страну лицом к Европе. Аннотация: Тридцатилетие, в течение которого царь Петр Алексеевич проводил свои преобразования, повлияло на ход всей мировой истории. Обстоятельства его личной жизни, умственное устройство, пристрастия и фобии стали частью национальной матрицы и сегодня воспринимаются миром как нечто исконно российское. И если русская литература "вышла из гоголевской шинели", то Российское государство до сих пор донашивает петровские ботфорты. Эта книга про то, как русские учились не следовать за историей, а творить ее, как что-то у них получилось, а что-то нет. И почему. "Проект будет моей основной работой в течение десяти лет. Речь идет о чрезвычайно нахальной затее, потому что у нас в стране есть только один пример беллетриста, написавшего историю Отечества, - Карамзин. Пока только ему удалось заинтересовать историей обыкновенных людей".

    Борис Акунин

    Об авторе: Борис Акунин (настоящее имя Григорий Шалвович Чхартишвили) - русский писатель, ученый-японист, литературовед, переводчик, общественный деятель. Также публиковался под литературными псевдонимами Анна Борисова и Анатолий Брусникин. Борис Акунин является автором нескольких десятков романов, повестей, литературных статей и переводов японской, американской и английской литературы. Художественные произведения Акунина переведены, как утверждает сам писатель, более чем на 30-ть языков мира. По версии российского издания журнала Forbes Акунин, заключивший контракты с крупнейшими издательствами Европы и США, входит в десятку российских деятелей культуры, получивших признание за рубежом. "Комсомольская правда" по итогам первого десятилетия XXI века признала Акунина самым популярным писателем России. Согласно докладу Роспечати "Книжный рынок России" за 2010 год, его книги входят в десятку самых издаваемых. О серии: Первый том "История Российского Государства. От истоков до монгольского нашествия" вышел в ноябре 2013 года. Вторая историческая книга серии появилась через год. Исторические тома проекта "История Российского Государства" выходят каждый год, поздней осенью, став таким образом определенной традицией. Третий том "От Ивана III до Бориса Годунова. Между Азией и Европой" был издан в декабре 2015 года. Четвертый - "Семнадцатый век" в 2016 году, и вот пятый - "Царь Петр Алексеевич" - появится на прилавках книжных магазинов страны в конце ноября 2017. Главная цель проекта, которую преследует автор, - сделать пересказ истории объективным и свободным от какой-либо идеологической системы при сохранении достоверности фактов. Для этого, по словам Бориса Акунина, он внимательно сравнивал исторические данные различных источников. Из массы сведений, имен, цифр, дат и суждений он попытался выбрать все несомненное или, по меньшей мере, наиболее правдоподобное. Малозначительная и недостоверная информация отсеялась. Это серия создавалась для тех, кто хотел бы знать историю России лучше. Ориентиром уровня изложения отечественной истории Борис Акунин для себя ставит труд Николая Карамзина "История государства Российского".

    Энтони Берджесс Заводной апельсин A clockwork orange
    Заводной апельсин
    "Заводной апельсин" - литературный парадокс XX столетия. Продолжая футуристические традиции и литературе, экспериментируя с языком, на котором говорит рубежное поколение malltshipalltshikov и kisok "надсатых", Энтони Бёрджесс создает роман, признанный классикой современной литературы.
    Умный, жестокий, харизматичный антигерой Алекс, лидер уличной банды, проповедуя насилие как высокое искусство жизни, как род наслаждения, попадает в железные тиски новейшей государственной программы по перевоспитанию преступников и сам становится жертвой насилия. Можно ли спасти мир от зла, лишая человека воли совершать поступки и превращая его в "заводной апельсин". Этот вопрос сегодня актуален так же, как и вчера, и вопрос этот автор задает читателю....

    Сергей Довлатов Марш одиноких
    Марш одиноких
    Сегодня Сергей Довлатов - один из самых популярных и читаемых русских писателей конца ХХ века. Его произведения - та самая великая классика, которая при всем своем масштабе остается простой, занятной и доступной любому читателю, независимо от возраста, национальности, начитанности или, говоря словами самого Довлатова, "степени интеллектуальной придирчивости". Лев Лосев сформулировал это в простейшей фразе: "Довлатов знал секрет, как писать интересно".

    В 1980-1982 годах Довлатов вел рубрику в еженедельнике "Новый американец", являясь его главным редактором. Настоящая книга предлагает вниманию читателей собрание избранных статей той эпохи и дает яркое представление еще об одной грани необыкновенного таланта автора....

    Чаща
    Дверник - деревня в Польнии, расположенная в живописной долине. Реки здесь быстры, горы высоки, жители дружны. Вот только рядом с Дверником находится Чаща - таинственный лес, живой и жестокий. Он похищает людей, лишает их воли и изменяет до неузнаваемости. В Двернике и живут Агнешка и Кася, подруги, любящие друг друга как сестры. Их счастливые дни омрачает лишь одно: они знают, что однажды им придется расстаться. Скоро в деревню прибудет Дракон, могущественный волшебник, единственный, кто может уберечь поселян от тлетворного влияния Чащи, которая не щадит ни детей, ни взрослых, оставляя в них навеки следы порчи. Но цена за освобождение от кошмара слишком высока: раз в десять лет Дракон забирает в свою башню самую красивую и самую талантливую девушку. Ни у кого нет сомнений, кто станет его следующей жертвой - Кася. Агнешка люто ненавидит Дракона и знает, что никогда не смирится с потерей. Но в этот раз он сделает неожиданный выбор, забрав ту, которая изменит жизнь всей......
