This Mysterious Realm Called Sleep: Book 2: Ama...

By the age of 60, most of us will have been sleeping for a total of roughly 20 years. That’s how we spend about a third of our lives. Yet, few of us are aware of the oddities which tend to trespass through our slumbers - or of the strange somnambulism that can erupt when we’ve drifted into restful oblivion.This audiobook, the second in the series, delves deep into the darker corners of the realm we call sleep, when our brains are active but we have no control and strange things happen. It goes further exploring real-life cases which entertain, sometimes frighten, astonish, and often baffle parasomnia and slow-wave sleep experts. Like the mysterious case of a renowned French detective who arrested himself for murder and the case of the bank robber who shot two people dead and walked free, while a man practiced in the art of hypnotism, who was miles from the scene of the crime, was convicted. A real-life nightmare of auto-suggestion and hypnosis.These and other less extreme cases, like the mystery behind Nuff the guinea-pig's disappearance from his cage, are compelling insights into what goes on in our heads while we sleep. 1.

An Antarctic Mystery
1,50 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This is the fully illustrated and extended annotated edition including a rare and extensive biographical essay on the author, his life and works plus a wealth of illustrations. Hardly ever in literature has any author adopted the plot of another and carried it forward beyond the lines of its creator. Yet this is precisely what Jules Verne has done with Poe's story called Narrative of A. Gordon Pym, and the two great inventive minds thus unite in forming Verne's tale entitled An Antarctic Mystery. The author has brought to the telling of his story all the old creative skill, the dashing love of adventure, and a surprising show of knowledge of the flora and fauna and the geography of the Antarctic seas. The hero of the book takes passage from the far-off Kerguelen Islands on the ship Halbrane, whose captain, Len Guy, had been very reluctant to carry him because it was impossible to tell where they might make port. But Mr. Joerling persisted and accomplished his purpose. The captain was an eccentric and silent man, yet when Mr. Joerling informed him that Connecticut was his home he showed a sudden interest. This was because the captain knew of the nearness of Connecticut to the Island of Nantucket, whence Pym and his companions had sailed on their disastrous voyage. It turns out that Len Guy is the brother of Poe's Captain Guy, and that his sole aim in life is to discover this brother,-lost in the Arctic ice. In fulfilment of the purpose, which had become a monomania, the Halbrane sailed for the Arctic seas, and there adventures were encountered which will astonish and delight every reader, young or old. Indeed, an Antarctic mystery is essentially a book for young people, but, like its predecessor, it will startle the old as well.

The Blue Bird for Children - Wonderful Adventur...
1,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

One of the strongest pieces of imaginative writing for children that the past decade has produced and one of the most delicate and beautiful of all times, is 'The Blue Bird,' by Maurice Maeterlinck, written as a play, and very successfully produced on the stage. Georgette Leblanc (Madame Maurice Maeterlinck), has rendered this play in story form for children, under the title 'The Children's Blue Bird,' and in this form it has now been carefully edited and arranged for schools. Maurice Maeterlinck was born in Ghent, Belgium, August 29, 1862. Although trained for the practice of the law and moderately successful in it, he very early became dissatisfied with the prospect of a career at the bar. In 1887, the young man moved to Paris and turned his attention to writing. Shortly after, at the death of his father, Maeterlinck returned to Belgium where he has since resided most of the time. His career as an author practically began in 1889, when he published two plays. At this time he was quite unknown, except to a small circle, but soon, because of his remarkable originality, we find him being called 'The Belgian Shakespeare,' and his reputation firmly established. Amidst his Belgian roses he continued to work and dream, and upon his youthful dreams he built his plays. They are all shadowy, brief transcripts of emotion, and illustrate beautifully his unity of purpose, of mood and of thought. Whether in philosophy, drama or poetry, Maeterlinck is exclusively occupied in revealing or indicating the mystery which lies only just out of sight beneath the ordinary life. In order to produce this effect of the mysterious he aims at extreme simplicity of style and a very realistic symbolism. He allows life itself to astonish us by its strangeness, by its inexplicable elements. Many of his plays are really pathetic records of unseen emotions.
