Momo

Momo Book Cover Momo
Michael Ende

Del autor de La historia interminable , Michael Ende.

Una novela escrita hace más de 40 años que no pierde su frescura y que en definitiva transmite un hermoso mensaje: el de la felicidad.

Momo es una niña huérfana que posee una maravillosa cualidad: sabe escuchar. Todos en su pueblo acuden a ella para contarle sus problemas y ella les ayuda a sentirse mejor: ayuda a los enojados, a los aburridos y a los niños. Pero todo cambia cuando aparecen los “hombres grises” quienes convencen a los lugareños de no perder tiempo y hacer todo de manera rápida.

Pronto nadie tiene tiempo para hablar con Momo, ni los niños juegan con ella. Sin embargo, Momo con la ayuda de la tortuga Casiopea y del maestro Hora intentará investigar que hacen con ese tiempo los “hombres grises”, búsqueda que a su vez la llevará a una aventura fantástica donde aprenderá sobre la amistad, la bondad y a valorar los pequeños detalles de la vida, aquéllos que en realidad hacen felices a todos.

Un ejercicio magistral de reflexión y de crítica sobre la sociedad contemporánea, sobre la amistad y el sentido de la vida a través de una historia tan sencilla como profunda y de un lenguaje pleno de poesía e ingenio.

Fahrenheit 451

Fahrenheit 451 Book Cover Fahrenheit 451
Ray Bradbury

Ray Bradbury s internationally acclaimed novel Fahrenheit 451 is a masterwork of twentieth-century literature set in a bleak, dystopian future.
Guy Montag is a fireman. In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, firemen start fires rather than put them out. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden.
Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred, who spends all day with her television family. But then he meets an eccentric young neighbor, Clarisse, who introduces him to a past where people didn t live in fear and to a present where one sees the world through the ideas in books instead of the mindless chatter of television.
When Mildred attempts suicide and Clarisse suddenly disappears, Montag begins to question everything he has ever known. He starts hiding books in his home, and when his pilfering is discovered, the fireman has to run for his life."
