The Pacific

The Pacific is een miniserie van de Amerikaanse tv-zender hbo, geproduceerd door Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg en Gary Goetzman, het producerende team achter de miniserie Band of Brothers uit 2001, die met een Emmy Award en een Golden Globe is bekroond. Deze nieuwe tiendelige miniserie volgt de met elkaar verweven avonturen van drie Amerikaanse mariniers — Robert Leckie (James Badge Dale), Eugene Sledge (Joe Mazzello) en John Basilone (Jon Seda) — tegen de achtergrond van de strijd in de Pacific tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog. In The Pacific worden deze mannen en hun collega-mariniers gevolgd vanaf hun eerste slag tegen de Japanners op Guadalcanal, van de tropische regenwouden van Cape Gloucester en de bolwerken op Peleliu tot de bloedige strijd op de stranden van Iwo Jima en de gruwelen van Okinawa. Uiteindelijk, na de overwinning op de Japanners, volgt hun triomfantelijke maar ongemakkelijke terugkeer naar huis.
**Recensie(s)**

Na het enorme succes van de tv-serie ‘Band of Brothers*, waarin de historische belevenissen worden getoond van de landing van de Amerikanen in Normandië in 1944 tot de val van Berlijn in 1945, besloten producenten Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg en Gary Goetzman dat een vervolg niet kon uitblijven. Ditmaal een tiendelige serie over de Tweede Wereldoorlog in de Stille Oceaan. Het verhaal wordt opgebouwd rond de oorlogservaringen van vijf mariniers en een gevechtspiloot tegen de achtergrond van de ‘island hopping campaign’ van het Amerikaanse Korps Mariniers en de Amerikaanse Marine. In dit boek, dat n.a.v. de televisieserie is gemaakt, het ware levensverhaal van de hoofdpersonen uit de serie: Austin C. ‘Shifty’ Shofner, Vernon ‘Mike’ Micheel, Sidney C. Phillips, ‘Manila John’ Basilone, Eugene B. Sledge en Robert ‘Lucky’ Leckie. Historicus Hugh Ambrose, consulent bij de tv-serie ‘The Pacific’**, plaatst in dit boek de persoonlijke belevenissen van de hoofdpersonen in de bredere context van de Amerikaanse oorlogsinspanningen tegen Japan en de verbeten gevechtsacties op eilanden als Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Okinawa en Iwo Jima. Het boek is voorzien van eenvoudige overzichtskaarten en originele zwart-wit foto’s uit het leven van de hoofdpersonen. Een indrukwekkend document. Kleine druk.E. Westerhuis

The Outsiders

Winnie Monks has never forgotten, or forgiven, the death of a young agent on her team at the hands of a former Russian army major turned gangster. Now, years later, she hears the Major is travelling to a villa on the Costa del Sol. For the young British couple housesitting it is supposed to be a carefree break in the sun. But when the secret service team arrives in paradise, everything changes.

The Outsiders

###
The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton
*The Outsiders* is a book that delves deeply into the hearts, minds, and stories of a group that had no voice before S. E. Hinton gave them one. She began writing the book at age 15, spurred on by the disturbing trend she saw growing in her high school towards division between groups. “I was worried and angered by the social situation,” Hinton writes. “I saw two groups at the extreme ends of the social scale behaving in an idiotic fashion — one group was being condemned and one wasn’t…. When a friend of mine was beaten up for no other reason than that some people didn’t like the way he combed his hair, I took my anger out by writing about it.”
Thirty years after it was first published, *The Outsiders* still carries the same frightening and unifying messages for teens (and readers of all ages). The ruthlessly realistic and violent story of the Greasers and the Socs, rival gangs from very different sides of the railroad tracks, is narrated by Ponyboy Curtis, a smart, sensitive kid who has grown to become one of the most recognizable figures in the history of young adult literature. Any teen who has ever felt isolated or different can identify with Ponyboy, a kid forced to be tough on the outside, but who underneath is just as scared and needy as anyone. Hinton herself has said that she has never written a character as close to her own self as Ponyboy is. Young Adult fiction was shaped and defined by Susan Eloise Hinton, and the realism she attached to the genre became the norm, enabling later writers like Robert Cormier and Judy Blume to find characters and voices that actually spoke to adolescents. Since 1967, Ponyboy has become the hero for countless teenagers nationwide as *The Outsiders* stands to influence an entire new legion of adolescents who need Ponyboy as much as ever.

The Outsider

The Outsider by Stephen King
***NEW YORK TIMES* BESTSELLER**
**An unspeakable crime. A confounding investigation. At a time when the King brand has never been stronger, he has delivered one of his most unsettling and compulsively readable stories.**
An eleven-year-old boy’s violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City’s most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.
As the investigation expands and horrifying answers begin to emerge, King’s propulsive story kicks into high gear, generating strong tension and almost unbearable suspense. Terry Maitland seems like a nice guy, but is he wearing another face? When the answer comes, it will shock you as only Stephen King can.

Outliers: the story of success

SUMMARY: In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of “outliers”–the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing. Along the way he explains the secrets of software billionaires, what it takes to be a great soccer player, why Asians are good at math, and what made the Beatles the greatest rock band. Brilliant and entertaining, OUTLIERS is a landmark work that will simultaneously delight and illuminate.
