Tout commence mal... by Lemony Snicket Summary

Cher lecteur, je regrette fort de devoir le dire, mais le livre que voici ne contient rien de plaisant. Il raconte la triste histoire de trois enfants qui ont toutes les déveines. Ils ont beau être bien élevés, et charmants, et intelligents, il ne leur arrive que des misères. De la première page à la dernière, ils vont d'une catastrophe à l'autre et collectionnent tes pires ennuis - à croire qu'ils attirent les calamités. Dans ce bref volume seulement, les enfants Baudelaire affrontent un sinistre personnage, de hideux habits qui grattent, un épouvantable incendie, un complot pour dérober leur héritage et de la bouillie froide au petit déjeuner. Pour ma part, il est de mon devoir de relater ces funestes épisodes, mais rien ne t'interdit, cher lecteur, de remettre immédiatement ce livre où tu l'as pris et d'en choisir un plus joyeux, si tu préfères les histoires gaies. Avec mes sentiments respectueux, Lemony Snicket

A Bad Beginning by Gai Eaton Summary

Now in his 80s, Gai Eaton describes how, after a strange childhood completely isolated from other children, followed by a Cambridge education and life as an actor and later as a diplomat, circumstances led him at the age of 30 to Islam.Fascinated by the vagaries of human behavior and the strangeness of human destinies, he has observed the human scene with a novelist's eye and traced the profound changes in attitudes and tastes which have taken place in a single lifetime. He recounts his youthful adventures with the clear-sight and understanding only possible for someone whom age has freed from the passions which once possessed him. What makes this work unique is the juxtaposition of hindsight with diary entries made at the time, which gives a quality of immediacy to a true story that includes reminiscences of the diplomatic life and an outline of the Sufi path.

Le laboratoire aux serpents by Lemony Snicket Summary

Si tu cherches une lecture gentille et amusante, désolé, je crains fort que tu n'aies pas pris le bon livre. Le récit que voici paraît drôle au début, quand les enfants Baudelaire se retrouvent en compagnie de serpents fascinants et d'un oncle fantaisiste. Mais ce début est trompeur. Pour qui connaît déjà les orphelins Baudelaire, il est bien clair qu'avec eux même les moments heureux débouchent sur les pires catastrophes. C'est bien simple : dans le présent volume, les trois enfants affrontent une odeur détestable, un terrible accident de voiture, un serpent au venin mortel, un coutelas pointu, un cadenas rétif et le retour d'une personne qu'ils espéraient ne jamais revoir. Il est de mon devoir de relater ces tragiques événements mais libre à toi, cher lecteur, de remettre ce livre sur l'étagère et de chercher quelque chose de plus gai. Avec mes sentiments respectueux.

But if you must know what unpleasantries befall the charming and clever Baudelaire children read on . . . The End is the last in A Series of Unfortunate Events, and even if you braved the previous twelve volumes, you probably can’t stand such unpleasantries as a fearsome storm, a suspicious beverage, a herd of wild sheep, an enormous bird cage, and a truly haunting secret about the Baudelaire parents.

Ouragan sur le lac by Lemony Snicket Summary

Cher lecteur, il m'en coûte de le dire, mais le livre que voici ne contient rien de réjouissant. Les orphelins Baudelaire, Violette, Klaus et Prunille, sont trois enfants charmants à l'esprit vif et au cœur d'or, mais leur vie n'est qu'une longue série de coups du sort et de calamités. Tous les récits les concernant ont de quoi fendre le cœur, et le présent épisode pourrait bien se révéler le pire de tous. Prudence, donc : pour lire ce livre, mieux vaut être prêt à affronter mille choses déplaisantes dont un ouragan, des sangsues voraces, une jambe de bois, de la soupe de concombres glacée et des cadeaux ratés, sans parler de manuels de grammaire. Pour ma part, il est de mon devoir de relater ces tragiques événements ; à toi, lecteur, de décider si tu te sens de force à les lire. Avec mes sentiments respectueux, Lemony Snicket.

L'extase totale by Norman OHLER Summary

Ce livre dresse un tableau inédit et fascinant de la toxicomanie massive qui a sévi dans l'Allemagne du III e Reich. Des étudiants aux ouvriers, des intellectuels aux dirigeants, ce phénomène n'avait jamais été analysé dans toute son ampleur. Mêlant rigueur de l'enquête et style narratif proche du nouveau journalisme, Ohler signe un grand livre d'histoire, captivant et novateur. La drogue est la continuation de la politique par d'autres moyens : telle est sans doute l'une des leçons les plus méconnues du IIIe Reich... Découverte au milieu des années 1930 et commercialisée sous le nom de pervitine, la méthamphétamine s'est bientôt imposée à toute la société allemande. Des étudiants aux ouvriers, des intellectuels aux dirigeants politiques et aux femmes au foyer, les petites pilules ont rapidement fait partie du quotidien, pour le plus grand bénéfice du régime : tout allait plus vite, on travaillait mieux, l'enthousiasme était de retour, un nouvel élan s'emparait de l'Allemagne. Quand la guerre a éclaté, trente-cinq millions de doses de pervitine ont été commandées pour la Wehrmacht : le Blitzkrieg fut littéralement une guerre du " speed ". Mais si la drogue peut expliquer les premières victoires allemandes, elle a aussi accompagné les désastres militaires. La témérité de Rommel, l'aveuglement d'un Göring morphinomane et surtout l'entêtement de l'état-major sur le front de l'Est ont des causes moins idéologiques que chimiques. Se fondant sur des documents inédits, Norman Ohler explore cette intoxication aux conséquences mondiales. Il met notamment en lumière la relation de dépendance réciproque qui a lié le Dr Morell à son fameux " Patient A ", Adolf Hitler, qu'il a artificiellement maintenu dans ses rêves de grandeur par des injections quotidiennes de stéroïdes, d'opiacés et de cocaïne. Au-delà de cette histoire, c'est toute celle du IIIe Reich que Ohler invite à relire à la lumière de ses découvertes.
