Rushing home one day, Professor Otto Lidenbrock puts himself to work trying to decipher the meaning of an ancient Icelandic text. After some time on an Otto-imposed hunger strike, Otto's nephew Axel finds the translation. This ancient document claims that it is possible to reach the center of the earth! Immediately Otto and Axel leave for Iceland, find a guide named Hans, and set out for the volcanic crater that is to be the entrance to the depths of the planet. Despite bad weather obstructing their progress, the trio finally manages to enter the crater. After rapelling down, the group starts to encounter all of the terrors and wonders that Verne himself expects a group to find based off (for Verne) recent scientific discoveries. There are rooms full of natural gas, underwater rivers, and vast caves that allow for people to communicate despite being separated by great distances. As the book reaches its climax, the three men find dinosaurs doing battle, as well as evidence of subterranean prehistoric human-like creatures...

'Ενας ταξιδιώτης με μυστηριώδες παρελθόν διασχίζει την μεγάλη έρημο αναζητώντας εκδίκηση. Συναντά δράκους και δαίμονες, δολοφονικές φυλές και μυστηριώδεις οάσεις και πλάσματα αρχαία που εδώ και αιώνες έχουν σταματήσει να ζητάνε απαντήσεις.

3.0
The novel is a first-person narrative from the perspective of the title character. The novel's setting is somewhere in the north of England, during the reign of George III (1760–1820), and goes through five distinct stages: Jane's childhood at Gateshead Hall, where she is emotionally and physically abused by her aunt and cousins; her education at Lowood School, where she acquires friends and role models but suffers privations and oppression; her time as governess at Thornfield Hall, where she falls in love with her Byronic employer, Edward Rochester; her time with the Rivers family, during which her earnest but cold clergyman cousin, St. John Rivers, proposes to her; and her reunion with, and marriage to, her beloved Rochester. During these sections the novel provides perspectives on a number of important social issues and ideas, many of which are critical of the status quo. Literary critic Jerome Beaty opines that the close first person perspective leaves the reader "too uncritically accepting of her worldview", and often leads reading and conversation about the novel towards supporting Jane, regardless of how irregular her ideas or perspectives are.

A Little Princess is a children's novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, first published as a book in 1905. It is an expanded version of the short story Sara Crewe: or, What Happened at Miss Minchin's, which was serialized in St. Nicholas Magazine from December 1887. According to Burnett, after she composed the 1902 play A Little Un-fairy Princess based on that story, her publisher asked that she expand the story as a novel with "the things and people that had been left out before". The novel was published by Charles Scribner's Sons (also publisher of St. Nicholas) with illustrations by Ethel Franklin Betts and the full title A Little Princess: Being the Whole Story of Sara Crewe Now Being Told for the First Time.

This isn't your typical ancient greek myth. This is real life in mount Olympus.

4.1
This short story comes from a dusted drawer located at the desk of Daphne, a down-to earth journalist who lives in a small town in the States. Her life turns upside down when one day she decides to visit the Natural History Museum in order to cover a story for the new weekly issue. A tiny click from her camera is the trigger for the plot to begin unraveling in front of her stunned eyes. A sweet mixture of ancient greek mythology and real life as we know it creates multiplte layers of reading in this retelling of goddess Diana's myth, or else, goddess Artemis. Disclaimer: everything in the story is fictitious. Only a few elements relate to the real mythology written in formal scripts.

The world puts us in a box. How we should think, how to act, when to feel bad.

The world tells us how to act. What to think, how to feel, when to be sorry, how to talk and when to keep things to ourselves. In a box, so to speak. There are many reactions and though I do not condone self-destructive methods, but Reality is Real.

"The Nightingale" is a literary fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen about an emperor who prefers the tinkling of a bejeweled mechanical bird to the song of a real nightingale. When the Emperor is near death, the nightingale's song restores his health. Well received upon its publication in Copenhagen in 1843 in New Fairy Tales, the tale is believed to have been inspired by the author's unrequited love for opera singer Jenny Lind, the "Swedish nightingale". The story has been adapted to opera, ballet, musical play, television drama and animated film.
