Resumen del eBook

The Time Traveller (for so it will be convenient to speak of him) was expounding a recondite matter to us. His grey eyes shone and twinkled, and his usually pale face was flushed and animated. The fire burned brightly, and the soft radiance of the incandescent lights in the lilies of silver caught the bubbles that flashed a nd passed in our glasses. Our chairs, being his patents, embraced and caressed us rather than submitted to be sat upon, and there was that luxurious after-dinner atmosphere when thought roams gracefully free of the trammels of precision. And he put it to us in this waymarking the points with a lean forefingeras we sat and lazily admired his earnestness over this new paradox (as we thought it) and his fecundity. ...

SHOOT ME, IM ALREADY DEAD (EBOOK)

PLAZA & JANES EDITORES

Resumen del eBook

The gripping storyof two families whofollow their dreams andstruggle to overcometheir own destiny.Marian Miller, a NGO aid worker, is asked to write a report on the illegal Jewish settlements in Palestinian territory. In order to do so, she wants to listen to the two versions of the story, what leads her to a meeting in Is rael with Ezaquiel Zucker, an old man who, like many others, has a lot to tell and also, a secret to hide... Ezequiel will narrate his story like it were a massive jigsaw puzzle of many complex pieces and Marian will tell him the Arabic version. At the twilight of the 19th century, the Zuckers, banned from their country during the last tsarist period because of their Jewish identity, live horror and injustice in the flesh. They set out for the Promised Land and buy the lands of the Ziads, an Arabic family headed by Ahmed.The two men, Ahmed Ziad and Samuel Zucker, will establish a strong bond, a friendship that can overcome the religious and political differences, and that will be perpetuated throughout generations.With a background of threats, unleashed betrayals, and thirst for vengeance, the lives of the Zuckers and the Ziads weave a story full of stories in a great novel that hides many novels inside; a novel that offers a historical frieze that starts off at the end of the 19th century and culminates in 1948. A mosaic of treachery and revenge, of possible and impossible loves and of the great adventure that is living and surviving in a land marked by intolerance and outrage. A deep and moving chronicleof a family saga, Shoot, Im already dead is not only Julia Navarros best and most ambitious novel, but it is also,and above all, a novel filled with real people who are responsible for their own destinies, who will follow their dreams and fight for their lives. ...

Highly recommended!From Sherry Lawson for Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, February 22, 2012A sneak peek of whats inside:Bibliography and resources, great as study guides or research resource.Trivia Questions and Discussion Starters, great for your book clubs!SAMPLE EXCERPT:What was the creation process like?For ten years, For managed to acquire and discard inspirations one theme after another, which included silence, invention, anxiety, naiveté, absence, the difficulty of expressing love, and war. Lots of changes were also made on the characters, settings and plot, all in trying to follow his instincts. The goal was to write a book he would want to read rather than what he would want to write. It never occurred to him to ask what was deemed smart by many, but only what to him felt genuine. Numerous themes floated to the surface and he didnt try to stick to them. There are characters that on their own accord became more vivid than the others, but if they chose to go, he would let them go.This process finally led the whole into a working plotand he arrived at the 39th draft, with this last draft having nothing in common with the first onenot the characters, not the themes, not the plot. The process took more than 2,500 pages with only 400 of these managing to be the novel.-------Dont miss out! Its highly recommended.Disclaimer: This work is not meant to replace, but to complement the original work. If youve loved the novel, then this is the book for you. It is educational in purpose, entertaining in nature, unauthorized and unofficial. It is a digestive work produced to stimulate the appetite and to encourage readers to appreciate the original work even more. ... Leer resumen completo
