Book Summary: A gripping literary thriller and smash bestseller that has taken Italy, France, Germany and the UK by storm. Six severed arms are discovered, arranged in a mysterious circle and buried in a clearing in the woods. Five of them appear to belong to missing girls between the ages of eight and eighteen. The sixth is yet to be identified. Worse still, the girls' bodies, alive or dead, are nowhere to be found. Lead investigators Mila Vasquez, a celebrated profiler, and Goran Gavila, an eerily prescient criminologist, dive into the case. They're confident they've got the right suspect in their sights until they discover no link between him and any of the kidnappings except the first. The evidence in the case of the second missing child points in a vastly different direction, creating more questions than it answers. Vasquez and Gavila begin to wonder if they've been brought in to take the fall in a near-hopeless case. Is it all coincidence? Or is a copycat criminal at work? Obsessed with a case that becomes more tangled and intense as they unravel the layers of evil, Gavila and Vasquez find that their lives are increasingly in each other's hands. THE WHISPERER, as sensational a bestseller in Europe as the Stieg Larsson novels, is that rare creation: a thought-provoking, intelligent thriller that is also utterly unputdownable.

Book Summary: La cifra della “rivoluzione digitale” non sta semplicemente nel promuovere grandi cambiamenti, bensì nell’aprire a inedite concezioni del mondo e dell’essere umano. La sfida intellettuale e scientifica alla base di questo volume è, dunque, indagare le implicazioni delle attuali tecnologie digitali (reti telematiche, piattaforme, intelligenza artificiale, big data, Internet delle cose, realtà virtuale ecc.) adottando una prospettiva critica e globale. Ciò corrisponde a superare una visione “tecnocentrica”, che troppo spesso si focalizza sul potenziale delle tecnologie sottovalutando il contesto culturale, sociale e politico, oltre che i valori e i modelli ideali degli individui e delle comunità con cui le innovazioni si devono necessariamente confrontare. I contributi all’interno di questo volume esaminano, con gli strumenti tipici delle discipline umanistiche, le diverse modalità in cui gli esseri umani possono rapportarsi al digitale, modificando se stessi e le tecnologie in un intreccio di azioni e retroazioni dinamiche e complesse.

Book Summary: "Sei personaggi in cerca d'autore", nato dall'elaborazione scenica di due novelle, "Personaggi", del 1906, e "Tragedia d'un personaggio", del 1911, è forse il più famoso dei capolavori teatrali di Pirandello, il primo e più celebre della "Trilogia del teatro nel teatro" di cui fanno parte “Ciascuno a suo modo” e “Questa sera si recita a soggetto”. La prima rappresentazione, il 9 maggio 1921 al Teatro Valle di Roma, fu occasione di violente polemiche tra il pubblico impreparato ad accogliere quest’opera nuova e provocatoria, in rottura con la tradizione teatrale dell’epoca. I sei personaggi (il Padre, la Madre, la Figliastra, il Figlio, il Giovinetto e la Bambina), protagonisti della “commedia da fare”, in seguito all’abbandono del loro autore, che, dopo averli creati, non può darli alle scene, giungono in un teatro dove una compagnia di attori, guidati dal Capocomico, sta provando una commedia. Sono alla ricerca di un altro autore che permetta loro di vivere il proprio dramma e arrivare cosi al compimento della propria esistenza. Testo fondamentale del teatro italiano del Novecento, Sei personaggi in cerca d’autore è un’opera che offre diversi livelli di lettura: il contrasto tra identità e apparenza, tra realtà e finzione, propone non solo una riflessione sul teatro, sulla rappresentazione e sul ruolo dell’artista, ma anche un’indagine sull’individuo e sulla società.

Book Summary: "La realtà che ho io per voi è nella forma che voi mi date; ma è realtà per voi e non per me; la realtà che voi avete per me è nella forma che io vi do; ma è realtà per me e non per voi; e per me stesso io non ho altra realtà se non nella forma che riesco a darmi. E come? Ma costruendomi, appunto." Uno, nessuno e centomila, iniziato nel 1909, fu pubblicato solo nel 1926; come il Fu Mattia Pascal è un romanzo retrospettivo, condotto da una voce narrante che è anche protagonista della vicenda. Il personaggio principale, Vitangelo Moscarda è un inetto, che non si riconosce nel suo corpo e che proprio da un difetto del suo corpo, inizia una riflessione lunga e dolorosa sul senso della vita. Attraverso una serie di considerazioni e il rifiuto della figura paterna, Moscarda si convince che l'uomo non è "uno", ma "centomila", avendo egli tante identità quante gliene attribuiscono dall’esterno. Nel finale il protagonista si risolve a diventare “nessuno”, vivendo come un sasso, una pianta, un essere inanimato, immerso nel fluire insensato della vita.

Book Summary: Il mondo della contemporaneità si trova davanti a una sfida epocale. La scelta è quella se respingere le tentazioni offerte dalla tecnologia e dalle diverse forme di intelligenza artificiale o aprirsi al nuovo patto con la modernità. Le scienze cognitive sembrano suggerire che il cervello umano è una macchina che difficilmente può dirsi libera. L’intelligenza artificiale può risultare l’alleato vincente per assicurare le decisioni migliori? Altri settori decisivi della cognizione umana, come la medicina, paiono più pronti ad allearsi con le nuove istanze tecniche, rispetto al campo della giustizia. In questo saggio, l’autore, avvocato penalista, tratta il rapporto tra diritto, giustizia, neuroscienze e intelligenza artificiale.

Book Summary: From the internationally bestselling thriller writer who has been compared to Thomas Harris, the third and final novel in the Caselli and Torre Series—a web of betrayals and shocking violence in which the series’ brilliant detectives must, if they want to live, figure out what is real and what is imagined. Reeling from a deadly bombing in Venice and her investigative partner Dante’s disappearance, Detective Colomba Caselli retreats to the rural countryside outside Rome to nurse her wounds. When an apparently autistic teenager appears in her yard, covered in blood, he leads her to a brutal crime scene where nothing is what it seems. As Colomba gets pulled into the investigation and the body count continues to grow, she is implicated in the violence. She is convinced that a powerful villain is working in the shadows to cause the carnage and frame her, but the only person who can help her is Dante—and he hasn’t been seen in over a year and is presumed dead. Colomba is sure he’s alive and out there somewhere, but will she find him before it’s too late? And can she clear her name and be free of the far-reaching legacy of the villain known as the Father... Bursting with action, ingeniously plotted, and filled with one unexpected twist after another, Kill the King is a shocking and satisfying conclusion to this breathtakingly original crime series.

Book Summary: Le avventure di Nicholas Nickleby è il terzo romanzo di Charles Dickens, pubblicato originariamente a puntate fra il 1838 e il 1839. La storia è degna degli intrecci e delle vicende umane, tipiche della letteratura di Dickens. Il giovane Nicholas Nickleby si trova, in giovane età, a dover sostenere la sua famiglia, dopo la perdita del padre. La famiglia, trasferitasi nella caotica Londra del 1800, cerca appoggio nella figura del fratello del defunto, Ralph Nickleby, che si rivelerà, ben presto, nella sua natura perfida ed egoistica. Unendo la drammaticità del racconto a spunti critici nei riguardi della società del tempo, oltre alla satira ed avventura, Dickens costruisce una trama ricca di fascino, con personaggi psicologicamente intensi.

Book Summary: Book of Souls picks up the action a year after the conclusion of the international sensation Library of the Dead. Will Piper’s life has been forever changed by the astonishing secret he discovered hidden at the government’s clandestine installation deep under the Nevada desert. His uneasy retirement from the FBI is interrupted when a long-missing book surfaces at an auction house in London. A group of ex-Area 51 employees recruits Will to assist them in obtaining the book and in helping them solve a mystery that will affect the fate of all mankind. As government operatives try to stop him, Will discovers the ancient missing volume has had a profound effect on history. Remarkably, a newly found puzzle sonnet by a young William Shakespeare seems to have been inspired by the book. As Will peels back the onion to solve a series of clues hidden in the poem, he finds the book has influenced not only Shakespeare but also the religious philosophy of John Calvin, the father of predestination, and the prophesies of the seer Nostradamus. When the final clue yields the ultimate secret, Will is forced to confront a truth which humanity may not be prepared to accept.

Book Summary: During their privileged, eccentric English childhood, Jack Rathbone enjoyed the unstinting adoration of his sister, Gin. So when both are art students in London, it is wrenching for her to watch him fall under the spell of Vera Savage, a flamboyant and reckless painter from Glasgow. Jack and Vera run off to New York City within weeks of meeting, and from a bruised, bereft distance Gin follows their progress south through Miami and pre-revolutionary Havana to Port Mungo, a seedy town in the mangrove swamps of Honduras. There, in an old banana warehouse, Jack obsessively devotes himself to his canvases while Vera succumbs to a chronic restlessness that not even the birth of two daughters can subdue. Passion, narcissism, and the relentless demands of creativity hold these riveting characters in thrall, and McGrath skilfully evokes a feverish world of tropical impulses and artistic ambition that leads ultimately to dark secrets and to death.

Eventually, after he has settled into his new life, the CIA will leak his whereabouts to the Israelis, the Russians, the Chinese, and the Saudis. Then the CIA will do what it does best: sit back and watch. The question is not whether Backman will survive—there is no chance of that. The question the CIA needs answered is, Who will kill him?

They shared an incredible, brief, fleeting moment of deep possibility, somewhere halfway down Charlotte Street. And then, just like that, she was gone—accidentally leaving him holding her old-fashioned disposable camera, chock full of undeveloped photos. And now Jason—ex-teacher, ex-boyfriend, part-time writer and reluctant hero—faces a dilemma. Should he try to track The Girl down? What if she’s The One? But that would mean using the only clues he has, which lie untouched in the beaten-up camera.
