Ready Player One 《头号玩家》


斯皮尔伯格大热电影《头号玩家》原著小说。

2045年,处于混乱和崩溃边缘的现实世界令人失望,人们将救赎的希望寄托于“绿洲”,一个由鬼才詹姆斯·哈利迪(马克·里朗斯 饰)一手打造的虚拟游戏宇宙。在那里,想象力主宰一切,你可以去任何地方,做任何想做的事,成为任何想成为的人 。哈利迪弥留之际,宣布将巨额财产和“绿洲”的所有权留给第一个闯过三道谜题,找出他在游戏中藏匿彩蛋的人,自此引发了一场全世界范围内的竞争。当韦德·沃兹(泰尔·谢里丹饰)成为首位解出第一道迷题的玩家,他和他的朋友们不可避免地卷入了这场奇遇和凶险共存,波澜壮阔的寻宝之旅——为拯救“绿洲”,也为拯救世界。

In the year 2045, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he's jacked into the virtual utopia known as the OASIS. Wade's devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within this world's digital confines—puzzles that are based on their creator's obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them.
But when Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade's going to survive, he'll have to win—and confront the real world he's always been so desperate to escape.

Dunkirk: The History Behind the Major Motion Picture 《敦刻尔克》


第90届奥斯卡最佳剪辑,最佳音响效果以及最佳音效剪辑3项获奖影片《敦刻尔克》,原版进口图书。

1940年,在法国敦刻尔克港,30多万被困的盟军从纳粹德国的手中,上演了一场非凡的海上撤离。作者用一种冷静而克制的写作方式,去试图表现和理解敦刻尔克大撤退前后的,那些处于那个时代、那些事件中的个体。也许正是这个原因,诺兰才将本书作者聘为历史顾问,用同样冷静而克制的方式,用同样的视角,拍摄了一部同名的电影,《敦刻尔克》。
In 1940, at the French port of Dunkirk, more than 300,000 trapped Allied troops were dramatically rescued from destruction at the hands of Nazi Germany by an extraordinary seaborne evacuation. The true history of the soldiers, sailors, airmen and civilians involved in the nine-day skirmish has passed into legend. Now, the story Winston Churchill described as a 'miracle' is narrated by bestselling author Joshua Levine in its full, sweeping context, including new interviews with veterans and survivors.
