As I open my eyes, I realize I'm not on my bed or even in my room where I should be after coming home late last night. "Or did I not make it home? This is definitely not earth" I said to myself as I looked around and took a 360-degree view of what I can't even describe. "Is this is supposed to be a house? Where am I?" Beautiful isn't it?

EMILE: A Treatise on Education by Jean-Jacques Rousseau (Musaicum Books) 1.5 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 15 hours ago

This eBook edition of "Emile" has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices. "Emile, or On Education" or "Émile, or Treatise on Education" is a treatise on the nature of education and on the nature of man. Jean-Jacques Rousseau considered it to be the "best and most important" of all his writings. Due to a section of the book entitled "Profession of Faith of the Savoyard Vicar", Emile was banned in Paris and Geneva and was publicly burned in 1762, the year of its first publication. During the French Revolution, Emile served as the inspiration for what became a new national system of education. Rousseau seeks to describe a system of education that would enable the natural man he identifies in The Social Contract (1762) to survive corrupt society. He employs the novelistic device of Emile and his tutor to illustrate how such an ideal citizen might be educated. Emile is scarcely a detailed parenting guide but it does contain some ...

Hercule Poirot's second appearance is "a remarkably good detective story" as the Belgian sleuth must determine who left a corpse on a golf course (The New York Times Book Review). After introducing Hercule Poirot in The Mysterious Affair at Styles, Christie brought him back three years later in 1923 for this "ingenious" murder mystery set in France (The New York Times Book Review). Instead of a hole in one, Poirot finds one in a hole -- a body in a shallow grave next to a golf course.

Arthur Hastings, intends to find out who put him there. Fatally stabbed in the back with a letter opener, millionaire Paul Renauld leaves behind a widow who claims two masked men tied her up and abducted her husband. Monsieur Giraud of the Sûreté believes he has the investigation well in hand and doesn't need assistance from Poirot. ...
