A book that every magic-enthusiast must read.At no point you'll felt guilt of starting this book, for this Memoir By Father Of Modern Magic, J.R.Houdin takes you to the mysterious life of a magician.The book contains his experience of self-Training, his homework with his son Emile, his tricks and the most astounding thing you'll find is his memoir on Algiers, for where he once had been made a special envoy(For What ? to find that I suggest you to read)where he was able to overcome the Marabouts' Magic by his superior Wand !

A Simple Soul

by Gustave Flaubert

It's story of a simple girl 'Felicite' who, unlike to her devotional belief and pure love for everyone:her mistress(Madam Aubain), parrot 'Loulou', Virginia and Paul(Children of a Widow 'Aubain'), Theodore(Her first love), Victor(Her nephew), has been destroyed in her heart either by their parting or death or betrayal and at last embraces death.She has no other world than of affection and bond, for she had no family of own.This Novel portrays a world for innocence, and fate of those who are simple in their 'soul' but have no human-bond ever lasting.You'll not be tired reading this.It may also give information on Christian culture and ceremonies:Altar, holy bread, etc, but there is no reason to not try for anti- or non-Christians, for 'Simple Soul' has more to aspiring writers and readers of novels...(Universalman / Kosovo.)
