    Hand-picked favourites
    John Green, the author of Looking for Alaska and Paper Towns, is one of the most popular voices in contemporary young adult fiction and The Fault in Our Stars became an instant classic.

    You will probably have been in tears watching the big-screen adaptation that starred Shailene Woodley and Ansel Engort as the devoted teenage lovers Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters and the book is just as heart-wrenching and poignant, but keeps a fine line in self-depreciating humour - especially from the wise-beyond-her-years Hazel.

    After meeting at a cancer support group, the cynical sufferer Hazel unexpectedly finds herself falling for the charms of Augustus and the novel follows the two as their relationship develops - taking in a romantic trip to Amsterdam in the process.

    Full of wit, sensitivity and observations about life and illness, this profound book will make readers of any age (especially teens) laugh and cry in equal measure.

But when they get there, they discover that this is not any ordinary reserve: it's a dinosaur theme park!

    Before the park is opened to the public, and to cure the nervousness of the park's investors, Grant, Sattler and Malcolm, accompanied by Hammond's grandchildren Lex and Tim, begin a tour of Jurassic Park. But corporate espionage at the hands of Dennis Nedry, Jurassic Park's chief programmer, will put the business of the park and the lives of everyone on the island at risk...

    With the park's security systems down and the control measures in place to maintain control of the animals failing, the group find themselves stranded and must evade the deadly Velociraptors and escape the jaws of the park's star attraction, the Tyrannosaurus rex, to meet up with the helicopter and be taken to the safety of the mainland.

    Gripping, scarily plausible and a whole lot of fun, if you love the film and are yet to read Michael Crichton's worldwide bestseller, there has never been a better time to read it now that the film franchise is back!

    Paperback
    'The mind of man is capable of anything - because everything is in it, all the past as well as all the future. What was there after all? Joy, fear, sorrow, devotion, rage - who can tell - but truth - truth stripped of its cloak of time. Let the fool gape and shudder - the man knows, and can look on without a wink'. Marlow, a seaman, tells of a journey up the Congo. His goal is the troubled European and ivory trader Kurtz. Worshipped and feared by invaders as well as natives, Kurtz has become a godlike figure, his presence pervading the jungle like a thick, obscuring mist. As his boat labours further upstream, closer and closer to Kurtz's extraordinary and terrible domain, so Marlow finds his faith in himself and civilization crumbling. Conrad's "Heart of Darkness" has been considered the most important indictment of the evils of imperialism written to date. The "Penguin English Library" - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.
