    Jane Austen

    Product Code: AADZL
    Paperback
    Beautiful, clever, rich - and single - Emma Woodhouse is perfectly content with her life and sees no need for either love or marriage. Nothing, however, delights her more than interfering in the romantic lives of others. But when she ignores the warnings of her good friend Mr Knightley and attempts to arrange a suitable match for her protegee Harriet Smith, her carefully laid plans soon unravel and have consequences that she never expected. With its imperfect but charming heroine and its witty and subtle exploration of relationships, Emma is often seen as Jane Austen's most flawless work.

What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they're going to change the other for all time.

  • Jurassic Park

    Michael Crichton

    Product Code: ANIUP
    Paperback
    Published back in 1990, and immortalised on screen in 1993 by none other than Steven Spielberg, Jurassic Park tells the story of paleontologist Alan Grant, who - accompanied by his graduate student, Ellie Sattler, and mathematician Ian Malcolm - is invited by billionaire John Hammond to a new 'biological reserve' off the coast of Costa Rica. 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!

When she later discovers that Darcy has involved himself in the troubled relationship between his friend Bingley and her beloved sister Jane, she is determined to dislike him more than ever. In the sparkling comedy of manners that follows, Jane Austen shows the folly of judging by first impressions and superbly evokes the friendships, gossip and snobberies of provincial middle-class life.

  • All Quiet on the Western Front

    Erich Maria Remarque

    Product Code: AKKCQ
    Audio
    This is a full-cast dramatisation of one of the greatest war novels of all time. First published as a novel in 1929, All Quiet on the Western Front tells the story of a group of young German soldiers who are enduring, and then coming to terms with, the realities of the First World War. At the age of 19, following the outbreak of the First World War, Paul Baumer enlists in the German Army. He is deployed to the Western Front, where the experience of life and death in the trenches has an enormous effect on him. He begins to feel disconnected from his past life: his family, his love of poetry, and his feelings. As the war progresses, Paul becomes increasingly lost in battle. Haunting yet comic, lyrical yet desperate, the novel became a bestseller on its original publication. It inspired an Oscar-winning film of the same name, and has been adapted for television and stage. This powerful radio dramatisation stars Robert Lonsdale as Paul Baumer, with a supporting cast including Simon Trinder, Stephen Critchlow, Carolyn Pickles and Malcolm Tierney.
