Chris rettet wirklich ausnahmslos alles und jeden - er ist ein Superretter. Nur bei Titus, der eindeutige Signale von totaler Überforderung aussendet, scheint er zu scheitern - was sich als wahrer Glücksfall erweist. Chris, der in Berlin in die 6. Klasse geht, ist ein ungewöhnlicher Junge. Sein Ruf als Lebensretter eilt ihm weit voraus.

»Bei weitem die beste einbändige Gesamtdarstellung des Mittelalters.« Paul Freedman, Yale University 1000 Jahre europäisches Mittelalter: Souverän schildert und deutet Chris Wickham eine der bedeutendsten weltgeschichtlichen Epochen neu. Eine ebenso präzise wie grandiose Darstellung eines Jahrtausends, das uns bis heute prägt. Zwischen dem Zusammenbruch des weströmischen Reichs und der Reformation liegt eine 1000-jährige Periode gewaltiger Umwälzungen. In einer elegant geschriebenen, umfassenden Darstellung präsentiert Chris Wickham das europäische Mittelalter als eine Epoche gewaltigen Tatendrangs und tiefgreifenden Wandels. Stilsicher und klar erklärt er die wichtigsten Veränderungen in den einzelnen Jahrhunderten, zu denen so zentrale Krisen und Ereignisse wie der Untergang des weströmischen Reichs, die Reformen Karls des Großen, die feudale Revolution, die Zerstörung des byzantinischen Reichs, und das entsetzliche Wüten der Pest gehören. Mit erhellenden Momentaufnahmen unterstreicht Wickham, wie sich die verändernden sozialen, ökonomischen und politischen Umstände auf das Alltagsleben der Menschen und auf internationale Ereignisse auswirkten. Der Autor bietet sowohl eine neue Interpretation des europäischen Mittelalters als auch eine provokative neue These, inwiefern und warum das Mittelalter bis in unsere Gegenwart hineinwirkt. Eine der fesselndsten Darstellungen des mittelalterlichen Europa seit Jahrzehnten und ein intellektuelles Abenteuer. »Das ist genau das Mittelalter, das wir im 21. Jahrhundert kennenlernen müssen.« John Arnold, University of Cambridge

Me Myself & Him (eBook, ePUB)
11,95 € *

Perfect for fans of Becky Albertalli´s Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and A. S. King´s Still Life with Tornado, this story of parallel time lines cleverly explores how our choices can change and shape us--as well as the ways in which choices don´t change the core of our being at all. When Chris Schweitzer takes a hit of whippets and passes out face first on the cement, his nose isn´t the only thing that changes forever. Instead of staying home with his friends for the last summer after high school, he´s shipped off to live with his famous physicist but royal jerk of a father to prove he can ´´play by the rules´´ before Dad will pay for college. Or . . . not. In an alternate time line, Chris´s parents remain blissfully ignorant about the accident, and life at home goes back to normal--until it doesn´t. A new spark between his two best (straight) friends quickly turns Chris into a (gay) third wheel, and even worse, the truth about the whippets incident starts to unravel. As his summer explodes into a million messy pieces, Chris wonders how else things might have gone. Is it possible to be jealous of another version of yourself in an alternate reality that doesn´t even exist? With musings on fate, religion, parallel universes, and the best way to eat a cinnamon roll, Me Myself & Him examines how what we consider to be true is really just one part of the much (much) bigger picture. ´´ Wildly ingenious ,...altogether, the novel´s a winner in this and any other universe. ´´- Booklist , Starred Review ´´Tebbetts creates entertaining dual narratives...[and] enjoyable Easter eggs.´´- Publishers Weekly ´´An engaging story that examines love, relationships, and the different paths one´s life can take...[perfect] for fans of Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli´s What if It´s Us , Bill Konigsberg´s The Music of What Happens , and Robyn Schneider´s The ­Beginning of Everything . ´´-- SLJ
