In Desert and Wilderness(2001)(460lk)

Autor: Henryk Sienkiewicz



In the tradition of Robinson Crusoe and Treasure Island comes a Sienkiewicz novel for readers of all ages!

This thrilling adventure saga and coming-of-age tale sets two young children, Stas Tarkowski, fourteen, and Nelly Rawlison, eight, within the reaches of Africa’s desert storms, the ravages of hunger, and threatening jungles filled with vicious animals and warring tribes. Everything for the pair seemed comfortable and safe in Egypt. But when the children are separated from their fathers during a vacation along the Nile, they become pawns in a treacherous plot and are abducted by the vengeful followers of the Mahdi. Joined in their trek by two African children, Kali and Mea, and together with the aid of a faithful dog, Saba, and a mighty elephant, King, the unlikely troop makes its way through deep Africa while facing perilous situations that would render helpless even grown men and women. Throughout this enthralling novel, author Sienkiewicz paints the vivid scenery of what was then known as “the dark continent,” a land filled with unknown peoples, primordial landscapes, tall and deep jungles, uncharted rivers and mountains.

Political instability, then as now, could make entire regions impassable. In the 1880s one such crisis, a rebellion led by “the Mahdi,” threatened to turn a large part of the continent into a hell of destruction and carnage. It is in such a background that Henryk Sienkiewicz, the master storyteller and winner of the 1905 Nobel Prize for literature, placed two European children – the heroes of this engaging tale. For Henryk Sienkiewicz, In Desert and Wilderness represented a final triumph; this was the last novel he would complete. Sienkiewicz, who had visited Africa in 1891, successfully recreates in the book the beauty he encountered amid the continent’s entrancing landscape. Written over eighty years ago for a younger audience, but appealing to all ages, In Desert and Wilderness remains a literary treasure in Poland. Now the fine Max.

I liked this book so much. I hope someday read more this author books. Such a good reading. I was suprised when I searched this author in google. He is born same day that I am. 5.May is good day to have a birthday! I recommend this book to my friends. Its a fantastical  follows the adventures of Stas and Nell, after their kidnapping from their home in Port Said, Egypt. By the end of it, the two face many dangers and achieve over-the-top feats that are enthralling, hilarious and somehow believable at the same time.

The lion king(1994)(24lk)

Autorid:Justine Korman Fontes, Don Williams



The exciting tale of Simba, a young cub who earns his place in the Circle of Life, is retold in the classic Little Golden Book format.


Kes ei tea siis meist lugu lõvipoeg Simbast. Minu jaoks oli see punkt lugemiseväljakutses kõige raskem. Kuna olen sündinud 1994 aastal, siis andis ikka otsida. Esimene kord kui see raamat ilmus oli aasta 1994 ja 1.jaanuar. Kuidagi õnnestus mul ühe tuttava kaudu saada selle raamatu koopia. Kaanepilt on jah aastast 2003 aga loodan, et see ei häiri. Kellele siis loomalood ei meeldi. Ma soovitada ei oska, kuna valisin enda sünniaasta järgi raamatu. Aga tegu oli vahva looga ja lugesin seda inglise keelsena, kuigi ma kirjutan postituse sellest eesti keeles. Mulle on alati meeldinud loomalood ja ma arvan, et järgmiseks punktiks saabki see, kus peategelane on koer. Kes siis neid ei armastaks! Päikest kõigile, siin Võru kohal igatahes särab täies hiilguses.


Cord’s Chance (Men of Mercy #7)(2018)

Cord’s Chance (Men of Mercy #7)(2018)(249lk)

Author:  Lindsay Cross



He thought he was done. His career as a special forces sniper was over. He’d lost his leg and his dignity in that ambush. Now, after nearly a year of rehab, he was fighting the toughest battle in his life: prove he was still worthy to serve.

His chance:
Contract with a security firm to pull protection for a rancher by the name of Sam Bishop. If he succeeded in routing out the bad guy, Cord would be back on the team.

The bonus:
He’d be able to get the hell away from all the counselors and therapists trying to tell him how to come to grips with his PTSD and missing limb. There were no emotions and feelings in west Texas, just rough necks and grit. Exactly what he needed.

The catch:
Sam’s real name is Samantha and she’s not a codgy old man – she’s the one girl from Cord’s past he never got over. He thought he’d lost his chance with her, and now that he wasn’t a whole man, he didn’t deserve her.

Samantha is determined to show Cord he’s everything she ever wanted. Her biggest battle isn’t the stalker threatening her life: it’s making Cord see he’s worthy of her love and so much more.

My opinion of the book.

Oh, I loved the book so much that I forgot to go sleep. Just keep reading and reading it. Story was about Cord and Samantha. I am glad that they get together. Perfect couple and so good reading that I hope someday I have chance to read more books in this series. I hope that author is writing more stories. She is so good at it. This was a great story about healing and second chances, with some suspense added in. Cord and Samantha were good friends in high school, but Samantha always had a crush on him. Cord didn’t think he was good enough for Samantha, so he kept her friend zoned and kept his feelings hidden. There second chance happens several years later when after being injured, Cord is assigned to protect Samantha from a stalker. Why he did it and when they come back together, you my friends have to read it. I garantee that you don,t even notice when book is over. I loved it and I am happy to read it.

Author:S. Jae-Jones



All her life, nineteen-year-old Liesl has heard tales of the beautiful, mysterious Goblin King. He is the Lord of Mischief, the Ruler Underground, and the muse around which her music is composed. Yet, as Liesl helps shoulder the burden of running her family’s inn, her dreams of composition and childish fancies about the Goblin King must be set aside in favor of more practical concerns.

But when her sister Käthe is taken by the goblins, Liesl journeys to their realm to rescue her sister and return her to the world above. The Goblin King agrees to let Käthe go—for a price. The life of a maiden must be given to the land, in accordance with the old laws. A life for a life, he says. Without sacrifice, nothing good can grow. Without death, there can be no rebirth. In exchange for her sister’s freedom, Liesl offers her hand in marriage to the Goblin King. He accepts.

Yet even as her talent blossoms, Liesl’s life is slowly fading away, the price she paid for becoming the Goblin King’s bride. As the two of them grow closer, they must learn just what it is they are each willing to sacrifice: her life, her music, or the end of the world.

My opinion

Liesl loved her family so it was no surprise that she would sacrifice herself for her sister. I liked her journey with her music as she became more confident. I loved this book so much, that I can,t wait, when I can read next book in this series. I am happy, because this book was a recommend from my friend and I hoped that could be good. Oh, Goblin King and Liesel, they were such a lovely couple. I hoped that ending is little different, but that ending was suprise to me. I hope, that I can read more books in this series and I want that more and more. Author is unknown for me, but now I need more this books from her. She is a good author and please if she could read my review, please maybe she can left me a comment down the post. When I started to reading it, I just can,t stop doing it, I just keep turning pages and enjoyed this story so much. I will definitely recommend this book to my friends.

So cute book, that I liked all pictures what was inside of it. Of course it’s for kids, but it was good reading to me too. It covers a variety of babies from the animal kingdom doing things baby animals do. The images are amazing, clear, and so fun. Most pages have more than 2 pictures on them. Lots of info is included, little tidbits are added tastefully here and there without being cluttered. Very well organized. Colorful, bright, and informative.
