“Dicen que el tren sólo pasa una vez, pero es mentira. Hay muchos trenes y, si no coges este, podrás coger el siguiente. De hecho, dos trenes distintos pueden llevarte al mismo destino. Perder uno, a veces sólo significa que llegarás un poco más tarde. En cambio, mi vida se ha llenado de globos perdidos. Como cuando eras pequeño y te compraban un globo de helio con la forma de tu personaje animado favorito. Seguro que alguna vez soltaste la cuerda a la que estaba atado y, cuando reaccionaste, ya se había escapado y ascendía sin parar hacia lo más alto, entre edificios y por encima de las copas de los árboles. Lo habías perdido para siempre. Pues yo he hecho lo mismo con las oportunidades. He dejado escapar momentos que sé que nunca volverán, que aunque quisiera no podrían repetirse jamás. Y claro, eso significa que a día de hoy tengo un arsenal de globos perdidos en la memoria. Una cantidad enorme de oportunidades que me recuerdan constantemente todas y cada una de las personas en las que me podría haber convertido si hubiera tomado alguno de esos caminos. Cada globo perdido representa una vida que pude tener y dejé que se esfumara entre mis dedos. A veces por inconsciencia, otras por temerario y otras, simplemente, por cobarde”

Narrated by a fifteen-year-old autistic savant obsessed with Sherlock Holmes, this dazzling novel weaves together an old-fashioned mystery, a contemporary coming-of-age story, and a fascinating excursion into a mind incapable of processing emotions. Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. Although gifted with a superbly logical brain, Christopher is autistic. Everyday interactions and admonishments have little meaning for him. At fifteen, Christopher’s carefully constructed world falls apart when he finds his neighbour’s dog Wellington impaled on a garden fork, and he is initially blamed for the killing. Christopher decides that he will track down the real killer, and turns to his favourite fictional character, the impeccably logical Sherlock Holmes, for inspiration. But the investigation leads him down some unexpected paths and ultimately brings him face to face with the dissolution of his parents’ marriage. As Christopher tries to deal with the crisis within his own family, the narrative draws readers into the workings of Christopher’s mind. And herein lies the key to the brilliance of Mark Haddon’s choice of narrator: The most wrenching of emotional moments are chronicled by a boy who cannot fathom emotions. The effect is dazzling, making for one of the freshest debut in years: a comedy, a tearjerker, a mystery story, a novel of exceptional literary merit that is great fun to read.

One of the world’s most beloved and bestselling writers takes his ultimate journey -- into the most intriguing and intractable questions that science seeks to answer. In A Walk in the Woods, Bill Bryson trekked the Appalachian Trail -- well, most of it. In In A Sunburned Country, he confronted some of the most lethal wildlife Australia has to offer. Now, in his biggest book, he confronts his greatest challenge: to understand -- and, if possible, answer -- the oldest, biggest questions we have posed about the universe and ourselves. Taking as territory everything from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization, Bryson seeks to understand how we got from there being nothing at all to there being us. To that end, he has attached himself to a host of the world’s most advanced (and often obsessed) archaeologists, anthropologists, and mathematicians, travelling to their offices, laboratories, and field camps. He has read (or tried to read) their books, pestered them with questions, apprenticed himself to their powerful minds. A Short History of Nearly Everything is the record of this quest, and it is a sometimes profound, sometimes funny, and always supremely clear and entertaining adventure in the realms of human knowledge, as only Bill Bryson can render it. Science has never been more involving or entertaining. From the Hardcover edition.
