Bouvard and Pécuchet
by Gustave Flaubert
$0.00, 239 pages, 4.1 out of 5.0 (12 reviews), #59 in > Literature & Fiction > Action & Adventure > Fantasy
Nowhere do Flaubert's explorations of the relation of signs to the objects they signify reach a more thorough study than in this work. Bouvard and Pécuchet systematically confuse signs and symbols with reality, an assumption that causes them much suffering, as it does for Emma Bovary and Frédéric Moreau. Yet here, due to the explicit focus on books and knowledge, Flaubert's ideas reach a climax. Consequently, the book is widely read as a precursor to modern theories on semiotics and postmodernism. The relentless failure of Bouvard and Pécuchet to learn anything from their adventures raises the question of what is knowable. Whenever they achieve some small measure of success (a rare occurrence), it is the result of unknown external forces beyond their comprehension. In this sense, they strongly resemble Antony in The Temptation of St. Anthony, a work which addresses similar epistemological themes as they relate to classical literature. Lionel Trilling wrote that the novel expresses a belief in the alienation of human thought from human experience. The worldview that emerges from the work, one of human beings proceeding relentlessly forward without comprehending the results of their actions or the processes of the world around them, does not seem an optimistic one. But given that Bouvard and Pécuchet do gain some comprehension of humanity's ignorant state (as demonstrated by their composition of the Dictionary of Received Ideas), it could be argued that Flaubert allows for the possibility of relative enlightenment.

In the isolated kingdom of Lannan Dús, nestled between the sea and the mountains, alarming events are taking place. Entire villages are disappearing, and the current King is doing little to address the needs and fears of his people.

But all of this is far from the concerns of a young girl named River, who was found by a peripheral seaside town, senseless and either unable or unwilling to divulge her own past. Through a series of events, she ends up saving the life of a boy named Javin, an outsider with a past and agenda of his own. Despite their differences and the difficulties involved, the two seize their chance to find some answers and head to the capital city.

But what starts out as a simple hunt for River's home quickly becomes more complicated as they find themselves pursued by soldiers of the King and start piecing together how their problems are linked to the royal family, a missing prince, a decade and a half old tragedy, and the slumbering past of the kingdom itself.

EPISODE 2

SERIES PRAISE: "A thoughtful look at empowerment for women."  "A rollicking trip into a fantasy world complete with dragons, love and strength, and ideas that really get you thinking."  "Highly recommended for all ages." 

SERIES AWARDS:
- Reader's Favorite - Gold Medal Winner -Young Adult - Fantasy - Epic
- CIPA EVVY Book Awards - 2nd Place - Fiction - Mythology

SERIES DESCRIPTION:
Morgan is a dreamer, change maker and art lover. She is a feisty, slightly preachy, romantic feminist full of contradictions and insecurities. Morgan uncovers a world where women have the power, and where magic is no longer just a figment of her wild imagination. Sounds like a dream, but it may, in fact, turn into a nightmare.

The world of the Ahe'ey challenges and subverts her views about gender, genes, and nature versus nurture.

The strong and uninvited chemistry between her and the dashing Gabriel makes matters even more complicated. His stunning looks keep short-circuiting her rational mind.

EPISODE 2 - QUOTES:

"Debilitating guilt crushed Gabriel every time he interacted with Morgan. The Ange’el’s affection for the human was weakening his mandate to control her movements and influence her decisions. His task was, once again, to deceive and manipulate. He seemed destined to betray the confidence of those he held most dear."

"Manhood is, today, an uncertain, frail status that is easily threatened. Insecure men attempt to affirm their manliness physically and symbolically."

"His possessiveness unsettled her. It seemed contrary to his gentle nature. He used his body and arms as a barrier; she was so small compared to him that she felt engulfed by his body. Morgan was having a difficult time trying to ignore the sense of well-being, peace, and desire she experienced every time she came close to him. His glow, that glow he had, seemed to have an effect on her."

EDITORIAL REVIEWS

"In this romantic tale, a champion of women’s empowerment stumbles on a hidden—and seemingly perfect—society. A bracing mix of emotionally and intellectually honest fantasy." - Kirkus Reviews

"This book is a thoughtful look at empowerment for women. At the same time, it’s a rollicking trip into a fantasy world complete with dragons, love and strength, and ideas that really get you thinking. This book is highly recommended for all ages." - HUGEOrange

"They're flawed, real, and honest characters that can be easily related to. Ahe'ey is the kind of novel society needs to read, to create inspiration and to make people think. Ahe'ey is daring, complex, and honest. A must-read novel that tackles heavy and real topics with a mix of serious and humorous, charm and tragedy." - Reader's Favorite - 5 Star Review

"Ahe’ey contains a richly imagined world that raises complicated and timely questions about our own. Jamie Le Fay’s Ahe’ey is an action-packed love story that puts forth a nuanced vision of gender stereotypes, body politics, and the dark side of seeking perfection." - Foreword Clarion - 4 Star Review

Forget what you know or think you know about mythology, there was time when all the gods of the earth interacted with each other and so did their children. This is the epic tale of the heroes that lived in that time.

The prophecy states that two demigods will either save Olympus and Asgard or be their destruction. The time has come. The gods have found the young demigods of the prophecy. Now they must send them on individual missions that will test their strength, their hearts, their minds, and their faith.

Kol, son of Loki, Is determined to prove to his self and the rest of the world that he is nothing like his thieving, mischievous, trouble-making father.
As he continues on his journey he must learn to develop his powers even if that means embracing some of his father’s traits. Facing sea monsters, angry gods, and a mission that seems impossible to complete, it would be much easier to follow in Loki's footsteps and choose the path his father wants him to. Will Kol be able to become the man he wants to be and fulfill the prophecy? Or will the world be plagued with another god of mayhem?

Vasos, son of Aphrodite, has spent his life training to be a Spartan warrior, dreaming of becoming a hero and hearing his name on the lips of all the gods. When the gods send him on an impossible quest he knows this is his chance to become the hero he's always wanted to be. Soon Vasos finds out becoming a hero isn't as simple as he thinks it will be, and all the training he has done could never have prepared him for the challenges he must face.

Ever since I was a child, I have
loved Charles Dickens' story A Christmas Carol. Moreover, the passing of time has done
nothing to diminish my love of this story. It was with that story in mind that
I wrote this one, my humble offering, a tale that ensues alongside the original, crossing it from time to time. I call it Christmas: A Carol Betwixt.

When the patriarch of the Ballenger empire dies, his son, Jase, becomes its new leader. Even nearby kingdoms bow to the strength of this outlaw family, who have always governed by their own rules. But a new era looms on the horizon, set in motion by a young queen, which makes her the target of the dynasty's resentment and anger.

At the same time, Kazi, a legendary former street thief, is sent by the queen to investigate transgressions against the new settlements. When Kazi arrives in the forbidding land of the Ballengers, she learns that there is more to Jase than she thought. As unexpected events spiral out of their control, bringing them intimately together, they continue to play a cat and mouse game of false moves and motives in order to fulfill their own secret missions.
