The Island

Victoria Hislop

The Island

Selected as one of Richard & Judy's Summer reading books, The Island holds the key to the past of Alexis' mother. But Sofia has never spoken of it. All she admits to is growing up in a small Cretan village. Then Alexi finds Fortini, and at last hears the story that Sofia has buried all her life: the tale of her great-grandmother Eleni and her daughters and a family rent by tragedy, war and passion. She discovers how intimately she is connected with the tiny, deserted island of Spinalonga, and how secrecy holds them all in its powerful grip.

JPod

Douglas Coupland

JPod

Coupland updates Microserfs for the Google generation, through the hijinx of Ethan and his five co-workers who are bureaucratically marooned in JPod. Amid daily battles with the boneheaded marketing staff, JPod's universe is amoral and shameless - and dizzyingly fast-paced. The characters are products of their era even as they're creating it. Full of word games, visual jokes, and sideways jabs, this book throws a sharp, pointed lawn dart into the heart of contemporary life.
