  To Kill a Mockingbird


  《杀死一只知更鸟》(To Kill a Mockingbird)作者哈珀·李(Harper Lee)于2016年2月19日去世,享年89岁。

  哈珀·李在1960年发表了她一生中唯一的长篇小说《杀死一只知更鸟》,该书大获成功,在1961年获得普利策小说奖,成为美国现代文学中的经典之作。

  To Kill a Mockingbird is an essential, heart-wrenching classic. Told through the eyes of young children in 1930s Alabama, a black man is accused of raping a white woman, and the underlying prejudices of the time makes his sentence all but certain.

  《杀死一只知更鸟》是一部真的很让人心痛的经典之作。这篇文章通过孩子的视角讲述的是:1930年阿拉巴马州,一个黑人被指控强奸白人妇女,这个时代对黑人的偏见使得他的罪名成立。

  名句欣赏:

  “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.”

  除非你从别人的观点考虑问题——在你钻进别人的身体里四处游荡之前,你决不会真正了解他。

  “People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for.”

  人们通常看到的是他们想看的,听到的也是他们想听的。

  “Before I can live with other folks I've got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn't abide by majorityrule is a person's conscience.”

  在与别人相处之前,我得先跟自己相处。唯一一件不会遵从少数服从多数原则的事是人的良心。

  This book takes you through waves of emotion as you start to understand the full context of the main character, the 9-year-old son of the Auschwitz commandant. Taking place during the Holocaust, we witness the horror from his perspective, a boy who just wants friends. You’ll be shocked by some of the more startling aspects of the book as the boy, Bruno, befriends one of the Jewish boys on the other side of the fence.

  当你开始认识书中的主角——奥斯威辛指挥官的9岁的儿子,你会产生很多种情感。大屠杀发生时,我们从他恐惧的眼中看到他也只是想要有一个朋友。你也会被书中的另一些东西所震撼到,比如栅栏另一边的那个犹太男孩儿,布鲁诺。

  名句欣赏:

  Childhood is measured out by sounds and smells and sights,before the dark hour of reason grows.

  在黑暗的理性到来之前,用以丈量童年的是听觉、嗅觉以及视觉。

  The Kite Runner


  《追风筝的人》是美籍阿富汗作家卡勒德·胡赛尼(Khaled Hosseini)的第一部小说,于2003年出版,是美国2005年的排名第三的畅销书。

  The Fault In Our Stars


  《The Fault In Our Stars》中文译为《无比美妙的痛苦》,是2013年接力出版社出版的图书,作者是John Green。自出版之后,在美国走红,成为美国年轻才争相传看的畅销书。

  This is probably the most likely book on the list to make you cry, as it chronicles the experiences of teens who are dying from cancer and living their last days in love. Their lifestyle is tragic and jarring at the same time, as we watch them deteriorate. The real tragedy is the love story between the main characters, who know that their romance is doomed.

  这本书可能是这10本中最容易催人泪下的一本,因为它讲述了一个患有癌症的少年,在生命的最后也对生活充满爱的故事。他的生活也是很悲惨的,很让人痛心,因为我们只能眼睁睁的看着病情恶化,但却什么都做不了。真正的悲剧是男女主角的爱情故事,因为他们都很清楚他们之间没有任何结果。

  名句欣赏:

  The world is not a wish-granting factory.

  这个世界不是一个实现每一个愿望的工厂。

  If you want the rainbow,you have to deal with the rain.

  想要彩虹,得先忍受雨水
