MÁS DE 25 HORAS DE AUDIOLIBROS: CORAZÓN INDIO, de Nieves Herrero El accidente de Lucas con la moto que le acaban de regalar, aunque casi le cuesta la vida, le va a meter de lleno en un mundo de sensaciones increíbles. Rodeado de nuevos amigos, y con la ayuda de Oriana, tendrá que asumir una gran responsabilidad: buscar el símbolo que puede salvar a una raza que está a punto de desaparecer. Para ello, será fundamental que consiga la plena comunión con la naturaleza. Un auténtico chamán indio, un águila que le persigue en sueños, y los ojos verdes de Oriana que parecen darle energía cada vez que le miran, impulsarán a Lucas tras su objetivo. LA ESPOSA DEL SOL, de G. Leroux Raymond, un joven ingeniero francés, llega a Lima, donde le espera su prometida María Teresa, toda una mujer de negocios que domina el comercio del guano de la región. Allí se encuentra con "algo" que al principio no parecía más una cierta hostilidad por parte de los indios, pero que después se irá transformando en algo totalmente distinto... ¿Por qué? El choque entre la búsqueda del poder económico por los europeos, y el intento de mantener sus tradiciones ancestrales por parte de los quechuas, va a desembocar en una situación de antagonismo que sólo el indio Huáscar podrá solucionar. EL ESCARABAJO DE ORO, de Edgar Allan Poe El Sr. Legrand se ha ido a vivir a la Isla de Sullivan. Allí se dedica a sus actividades favoritas: la lectura y la búsqueda de nuevas especies de insectos, junto con su inseparable criado, Júpiter. El día que fui a visitarle estaba muy alterado, porque acababa de descubrir una especie que parecía completamente desconocida: era un escarabajo que parecía... de oro. Júpiter, que como todos los negros era muy supersticioso, no quería saber nada del escarabajo. Pero su patrón nos iba a embarcar en una aventura que ninguno de nosotros podía imaginar... y que estamos seguros de que, te va a enganchar. MANAOS, de Alberto Vázquez Figueroa En Manaos, perdidas en medio de la selva amazónica, se encuentran las explotaciones de caucho del argentino Sierra, un despiadado terrateniente que esclaviza a los indios y los somete al hambre y al látigo para aumentar los beneficios de su producción. Entre los esclavos se encuentran el Nordestino, que fue a parar allí por una deuda que nunca logrará pagar; el Gringo, un antiguo guardaespaldas de Sierra condenado a la esclavitud por acostarse con Claudia, la amante del patrón, y Ramiro Poco-poco, un indio auca recién llegado a la plantación. Cuando Sierra parece decidido a dejar a Claudia allí para satisfacer a los caucheros, lo insostenible de la situación determinará de estos tres hombres a rescatarla e intentar lo que hasta este momento ningún hombre ha logrado: huir.

Almayer's Folly

Author: Joseph Conrad Narrator: Kristel Tretter Release Date: 01/08/2020

'Almayer’s Folly' (1895) is Joseph Conrad’s debut novel. It centers on the Dutch trader Kaspar Almayer, who comes to Borneo with a suitcaseful of dreams. He settles on the exotic island among the Malays and mainly deals in river trade. His half-Malay daughter, Nina, is met with reluctance by the local community. But Almayer wants to put an end to his waning career as a merchant and hopes to find the island's hidden gold mine, so that he can return to Amsterdam as a wealthy man, with his daughter, and give her both financial and social status. But fate can be cruel, not least in the colonies. This is the story of a man living at the edge of two cultures, having to adapt both sociologically and psychologically to a new environment. Here Conrad masterfully combines romance and adventure with moral and existential issues.

Amy Foster

Author: Joseph Conrad Narrator: Bellona Times Release Date: 01/11/2018

Classic shortish story by Conrad that relates his self-thought alienation from British society, as a young foreign man survives a shipwreck off the coast of Kent, England only to be shunned by most of the townsfolk. The one exception is the loving, if dull-witted, Miss Foster. Joseph Conrad (born Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski) was a Polish author who wrote in English after settling in England. He was granted British nationality in 1886, but always considered himself a Pole. Conrad is regarded as one of the greatest novelists in English, although he did not speak the language fluently until he was in his twenties (and always with a marked accent). He wrote stories and novels, often with a nautical setting, that depict trials of the human spirit in the midst of an indifferent universe. He was a master prose stylist, who brought a distinctly non-English tragic sensibility into English literature.
