Les 100 finales qu il faut conna tre
Tout le monde s'accorde sur les bénéfices d'une bonne connaissance de la théorie des fins de parties. Entre autres : il est très satisfaisant de savoir conclure à son avantage une partie que l'on a dominée ou d'obtenir la partie nulle après une âpre défense ; en sachant où l'on va, on traite bien mieux la phase délicate de transition entre milieu de partie et finale on sait quelles pièces échanger ou non, et où placer ses pions ; contrairement à la théorie des ouvertures, la théorie des finales évolue très lentement à de rares exceptions près, les connaissances acquises restent toujours valables. Pourtant, la plupart des amateurs font l'impasse sur l'étude des finales ce qui permettra aux lecteurs de ce livre de glaner de nombreux points. C'est que la théorie des finales semble quelque peu aride et impressionne par son ampleur. En réalité, le nombre de positions et méthodes de jeu qu'il faut vraiment connaître est restreint. Ce livre les contient toutes. L'auteur a sélectionné pour vous les 100 positions les plus importantes à connaître. Convaincu de ce qu'on ne les retiendra vraiment que si on les comprend bien, il en a décortiqué la logique et résumé les conclusions. Il a élaboré des tests permettant de vérifier et consolider vos connaissances. En suivant ses conseils, vous gagnerez un temps considérable pour une étude efficace des finales, qui vous ouvrira les portes d'une profonde compréhension du jeu d'échecs.

The Book of Ivy
What would you kill for? After a brutal nuclear war, our country was decimated. A new nation of survivors lives within a fenced community. No one knows what lies beyond the fence; only that to be cast outside it is a fate worse than death. Two families fought to govern our new society. Now, peace and control are maintained by marrying the daughters of the losing faction to the sons of the winning side in a yearly ceremony. This year, it's my turn. My name is Ivy Westfall, and my mission is simple: to kill Bishop Lattimer, the president's son and my soon-to-be husband, and return the Westfall family to power. I never expected that my new husband would be the one person in the world to truly understand me. But I can't falter now - I am the only one who can restore the Westfall legacy. Bishop must die. And I must be the one to kill him... The Book of Ivy is the first novel in a thrilling dystopian duology from the author of The Roanoke Girls, perfect for fans of the Delirium series.
Our woe is upon us. This chilling tale of one man’s descent into madness was published shortly before the author was institutionalized for insanity, and so The Horla has inevitably been seen as informed by Guy de Maupassant’s mental illness. While such speculation is murky, it is clear that de Maupassant—hailed alongside Chekhov as father of the short story—was at the peak of his powers in this innovative precursor of first-person psychological fiction. Indeed, he worked for years on The Horla’s themes and form, first drafting it as “Letter from a Madman,” then telling it from a doctor’s point of view, before finally releasing the terrified protagonist to speak for himself in its devastating final version. In a brilliant new translation, all three versions appear here as a single volume for the first time. The Art of The Novella Series Too short to be a novel, too long to be a short story, the novella is generally unrecognized by academics and publishers. Nonetheless, it is a form beloved and practiced by literature's greatest writers. In the Art Of The Novella series, Melville House celebrates this renegade art form and its practitioners with titles that are, in many instances, presented in book form for the first time.

Now a Major Motion Picture starring Emma Watson and Tom Hanks. A bestselling dystopian novel that tackles surveillance, privacy and the frightening intrusions of technology in our lives. When Mae Holland is hired to work for the Circle, the world’s most powerful internet company, she feels she’s been given the opportunity of a lifetime. The Circle, run out of a sprawling California campus, links users’ personal emails, social media, banking, and purchasing with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency. As Mae tours the open-plan office spaces, the towering glass dining facilities, the cozy dorms for those who spend nights at work, she is thrilled with the company’s modernity and activity. There are parties that last through the night, there are famous musicians playing on the lawn, there are athletic activities and clubs and brunches, and even an aquarium of rare fish retrieved from the Marianas Trench by the CEO. Mae can’t believe her luck, her great fortune to work for the most influential company in the world—even as life beyond the campus grows distant, even as a strange encounter with a colleague leaves her shaken, even as her role at the Circle becomes increasingly public. What begins as the captivating story of one woman’s ambition and idealism soon becomes a heart-racing novel of suspense, raising questions about memory, history, privacy, democracy, and the limits of human knowledge.
