Book excerpt: Andet bind i den hårdtslående thriller om Jazz, sønnen af USA’s mest berømte seriemorder. Jazz’ far, Billy Dent, er stukket af fra fængslet, og New York er på den anden ende på grund af en lang række modbydelige mord. Politiet beder Jazz om hjælp, og skyldbevidst tager han af sted. Måske kan han sone sin fars skyld...? Game er andet bind af spændingsserien I hunt killers. Det er strålende, morbid underholdning for både unge og vokse – velskrevet, med mange vinkler og en skræmmende psykologisk indsigt. Ikke en serie for sarte sjæle! Pressen skriver: »Game er ligesom det foregående bind utroligt velskrevet. Forfatteren har en evne til at komme helt ind under huden på læseren og hans evne til at skildre en seriemorders tankegang er skræmmende god. [...] Det er som om man ikke kan vente på at få svaret sidst i bogen - man vil vide det NU!« 10/10 stjerner – Bookeater.dk Thrilleren bugner af lig, gode plot og intrigerende problemstillinger for Jazz og hans kæreste. Persontegningen er særligt interessant, personlighederne troværdige med en glimrende profilering af Billy, mens Jazz’ gode ven er særdeles overbevisende som hormonstyret 17-årig, hvis ordforråd nødigt bevæger sig over bæltestedet. – Birthe Strandby, bogvaegten.dk »En barsk og bloddryppende teenagethriller [...] Intens spænding. Anbefales indkøbt bredt.« – Lars Larsen, Lektør »Sindssygt spændende bog med masser af gys og overraskende drejninger. Man føler sig som læser en gang imellem helt skizofren på grund af skiftene mellem de forskellige personers synsvinkel. Bogen er umulig at slippe og giver et uhyggeligt billede af en seriemorders tankegang - både fra morderens og Jazz ́ synsvinkel.« ***** – pallesgavebod.dk

Book excerpt: Young adults live in a violent culture, so trying to protect them from the world they live in is not only futile but can also be dangerous. No matter their ethnicity, social class, or economic status, teens must know how to survive the perils that may await them. Most teens understand this, and they want books, television shows, and films to reflect the reality of their world—the bad along with the good. In They Hurt, They Scar, They Shoot, They Kill: Toxic Characters in Young Adult Fiction, Joni Richards Bodart examines works of fiction that feature characters who threaten the psychological and physical well-being of teens and their friends and families. In this companion volume to They Suck, They Bite, They Eat, They Kill, the focus is on individuals who prey on the vulnerable: bullies, manipulators, torturers, sexual predators, and sadists. The novels and stories discussed in this volume feature adult criminals or predators who look for young people to ensnare; school personnel who interact with students in harmful ways; teens who bully others in order to hide their own fears and weaknesses; and parents, siblings, and others who mistreat family members. Arranged in five sections that cover such topics as bullies, school shootings, and monsters at home, this volume analyzes the most important and well-written series and titles for teens. They Hurt, They Scar, They Shoot, They Kill will help parents, teachers, and other adults understand the value of these titles and the benefits of reading them, so they will be less likely to forbid them to their teens or challenge library collections for carrying them.

Download or read book The Boy Detective in Early British Children’s Literature written by Lucy Andrew and published by Springer. This book was released on 2017-10-19 with total page 243 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book maps the development of the boy detective in British children’s literature from the mid-nineteenth to the early-twentieth century. It explores how this liminal figure – a boy operating within a man’s world – addresses adult anxieties about boyhood and the boy’s transition to manhood. It investigates the literary, social and ideological significance of a vast array of popular detective narratives appearing in ‘penny dreadfuls’ and story papers which were aimed primarily at working-class boys. This study charts the relationship between developments in the representation of the fictional boy detective and changing expectations of and attitudes towards real-life British boys during a period where the boy’s role in the future of the Empire was a key concern. It emphasises the value of the early fictional boy detective as an ideological tool to condition boy readers to fulfil adult desires and expectations of what boyhood and, in the future, proper manhood should entail. It will be of particular importance to scholars working in the fields of children’s literature, crime fiction and popular culture.

Download or read book The Killer Whale Journals written by Hanne Strager and published by JHU Press. This book was released on 2023-04-11 with total page 281 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Experience the hauntingly beautiful world of orcas, and discover the stories that unfold when humans enter oceans alongside them. When intrepid biology student Hanne Strager volunteered to be the cook on a small research vessel in Norway's Lofoten Islands, the trip inspired a decades-long journey into the lives of killer whales—and an exploration of people's complex relationships with the biggest predators on earth. The Killer Whale Journals chronicles the now internationally renowned science writer's fascinating adventures around the world, documenting Strager's personal experiences with orcas in the wild. Killer whales' incredible intelligence, long life spans, and strong family bonds lead many people to see them as kindred spirits in the sea. But not everyone feels this way—like wolves, orcas have been both beloved and vilified throughout human history. In this absorbing odyssey, Strager traces the complicated relationship between humans and killer whales, while delving into their behavior, biology, and ecology. She brings us along in her travels to the most remote corners of the world, battling the stormy Arctic seas of northern Norway with fellow biologists intent on decoding whale-song, interviewing First Nations conservationists in Vancouver, observing Inuit hunters in Greenland, and witnessing the dismantling of black market "whale jails" in the Russian wilderness of Kamchatka. Through these captivating stories, Strager introduces us to a diverse cast of characters from Inuit elders to Australian Aboriginal whalers and guides us through the world's wild waters, from fjords above the Arctic circle in Norway to the poaching-infested waters off Kamchatka. Featuring astonishing photographs from famed nature photographer and conservationist Paul Nicklen, The Killer Whale Journals reveals rare and intimate moments of connection with these fierce, brilliant predators.

Download or read book The Routledge Companion to Animal-Human History written by Hilda Kean and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2018-09-03 with total page 560 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Routledge Companion to Animal-Human History provides an up-to-date guide for the historian working within the growing field of animal-human history. Giving a sense of the diversity and interdisciplinary nature of the field, cutting-edge contributions explore the practices of and challenges posed by historical studies of animals and animal-human relationships. Divided into three parts, the Companion takes both a theoretical and practical approach to a field that is emerging as a prominent area of study. Animals and the Practice of History considers established practices of history, such as political history, public history and cultural memory, and how animal-human history can contribute to them. Problems and Paradigms identifies key historiographical issues to the field with contributors considering the challenges posed by topics such as agency, literature, art and emotional attachment. The final section, Themes and Provocations, looks at larger themes within the history of animal-human relationships in more depth, with contributions covering topics that include breeding, war, hunting and eating. As it is increasingly recognised that nonhuman actors have contributed to the making of history, The Routledge Companion to Animal-Human History provides a timely and important contribution to the scholarship on animal-human history and surrounding debates.
