Sur ce sentiment inconnu dont l´ennui, la douceur m´obsèdent, j´hésite à apposer le nom, le beau nom grave de tristesse. C´est un sentiment si complet, si égoïste que j´en ai presque honte alors que la tristesse m´a toujours paru honorable. Je ne la connaissais pas, elle, mais l´ennui, le regret, plus rarement le remords. Aujourd´hui, quelque chose se replie sur moi comme une soie, énervante et douce, et me sépare des autres. 1. French.

Until this morning, Charlotte Pudding was almost happy with her life. Apart from her homicidal toaster, dead parents, and general ennui. Well, maybe not that happy.

Man Booker Prize-winning author Julian Barnes´ debut novel. The adolescent Christopher and his soul mate Toni had sneered at the stifling ennui of Metroland, their cosy patch of suburbia on the Metropolitan line. They had longed for Life to begin - meaning Sex and Freedom - to travel and choose their own clothes. Then Chris, at thirty, starts to settle comfortably into bourgeois contentment himself. Luckily, Toni is still around to challenge such backsliding. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Greg Wise. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/bbcw/004214/bk_bbcw_004214_sample.mp3.

Some of you know and love Prince Breslyn already, others may meet him here for the first time. This is how Bres got his introduction to humans and formed his everlasting love of them. It is a short story/novella. Fact one: By tradition and treaty, Fae do not interfere with the human world - it is against the rules. Fact two: For a Royal Fae prince who suffers from the ennui of immortality, watching and interacting with humans - especially lovely, spirited human females - can be entertaining. Fact three: When entertainment changes to affection, and affection becomes love, rules will be broken. His name is Breslyn, Prince of Dagda of the Tuatha De. He is a royal Fae, immortal and endowed with more than eye candy looks. He is a being with immeasurable powers but life for him lacked something - so he looked around, and found... humans. Watching their lives and interactions, from another dimension filled him with feelings he had thought long lost in the ennui of immortality. The more he watched - the more addicted to their antics he became. An affection for the human race grew inside the heart Fae are not supposed to have, and it was inevitable that he began to have preferences with regards to them. In 1314, when Scotland´s rule was in jeopardy and the British were about to take more than they should, he chose a side - and then he saw her, and nothing would ever be the same for the prince ever again... 1.
