很多人喜欢在公车上、火车上、飞机上看书,美国《时代》杂志特推了一辑《Top 10 Airplane Books》,适合在飞机上看的10本书,原版英语学习网做了下载。



1. Angels & Demons, Dan Brown (Ebook下载

Everyone must already own The Da Vinci Code. Angles and Demons, the prequel to Dan Brown's mega best seller, reigns supreme at airport bookstores. It's not hard to see why: the plot, which focuses on an improbable attempt by the ancient order of the Illuminati to destroy the Vatican (using antimatter, natch), makes perfect sense after being lulled into a state of travel-induced half-sleep. It's also the type of book that has made Brown lots and lots of money.

一场令人悚然的猫捉老鼠式的较量,一个生天死攸关、扣人心弦的惊险故事,一出离奇古怪的呈惊人的事件,一部集宗教、科学、谋杀、推理和建筑学于一体、情节曲折的小说。天使与魔鬼》讲述了:几百年前,最让梦见蒂冈畏惧的敌是一个名为“光照派”的秘密组织。这个组织由一些受到宗教迫害的科学家组成,他们发誓要对梵冈进行复仇。时到今日,当代许多历史学家还对这个组织的存在深信不疑,而且认为这是全球势力最强大的组织之一,它渗透到世界的各个角落,不为人知……

2. The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown (Ebook下载(英文朗读完整版)

Don't doubt the Dan Brown juggernaut. By 2003's The Da Vinci Code, Brown had clearly honed his pop-lit formulation of improbable plot twists, historical trivia and travelogue. While travelers may have bought more copies of Angels and Demons, The Da Vinci Code started the phenomenon. Harvard professor Robert Langdon's quest for the Holy Grail might rely on some shaky historical theories, but with The Da Vinci Code, Brown indisputably found publishing's commercial equivalent.

《达芬奇密码》是一本博学而充满悬念的小说,场景设定在卢浮宫宏大的厅堂之中,是惊险小说和智力解迷结合的典范之作。《达芬奇密码》打破了传统悬念小说的模式,其行文节奏明快,语言富有智慧,情节错落有致,调查资料翔实,刻画细致入微。丹·布朗在小说里描述了一种带有黑色幽默的人生哲学,同时通过小说主人公之口对卢浮宫收藏的经典画作进行了别具一格的点评,对创作这些作品的画家也有非常有意思的介绍。从小说的精彩开篇到难以预料的令人叫绝的结尾,畅销书作家丹·布朗充分证明自己是个善讲故事的大师。 


 

3. The Broker, John Grisham(PDF下载

John Grisham had the formula for an airport best seller way before Brown started seeing Mary Magdalene in Da Vinci paintings. The author of legal thrillers including A Time to Kill and The Pelican Brief had his biggest chart topper with the 2005 novel The Broker. Unusually for Grisham, it doesn't focus on a plucky young lawyer, although by making its protagonist a disgraced Washington lobbyist, it dipped from the same murky well. The rest of the book, involving assassins, state secrets and the Italian city of Bologna, ensures there will be enough close calls and exotic locales to keep you flipping pages until the drink cart comes through.

4. The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini(PDF 下载)(Read Online

Nothing about Khaled Hosseini's critically acclaimed 2003 debut makes it seem a slam dunk for casual readers. The Kite Runner details the tumultuous life of a young Afghan boy (including the rape of his best friend), set against the disintegration of his country and the rise of the Taliban. But the book has still sold more than 10 million copies worldwide — putting it in an exclusive club that many of these other airport best sellers can't match.

这是一个关于背叛的代价、赎罪的可能的故事,也是一个关于父亲对儿子影响的故事——包括父亲对儿子的爱、奉献与谎言。小说背景也涉及了阿富汗过去到目前的状况,读者也得以从本书一窥这个神秘国度。生命的节奏是这个故事的架构。这部小说以一九七○年代的阿富汗与之后的美国为背景,透过作者的文采,雅俗共赏。小说的高潮如此残忍又如此美丽,令人不忍揭露,作者以恩典与救赎勾勒生命圆满循环的功力展露无遗。一部极具疗癒力量的恢宏文学作品。

以阿富汗君王时代末期至塔里班政权为历史背景,透过一个12岁小男孩的眼光,诉说一个有关爱与背叛、恐惧与罪恶、愧疚与救赎的感人故事。作者文笔细腻而富于感情,特别是描述父子之间亲情、奉献与谎言的部份,尤为感人。本书是阿富汗医师作家胡赛尼的处女作,甫出版即造成轰动。这也是唯一以英文写就的阿富汗小说。


 

5. Blink, Malcolm Gladwell (EXE+PDF下载)MP3有声下载

Gladwell might take offense, but in the airplane reading field at least, the New Yorker writer is the Dan Brown of nonfiction. A 2005 work on the power of snap judgments, Blink is filled with fascinating and entertaining facts and people: the tennis coach who can predict double faults before the serve is hit, the marriage counselor who can peg whether a couple will divorce in the first few minutes of talking to them. While the book makes for fascinating cocktail chatter, critics say the anecdotes don't support any larger theory. Still, it's a brainy airport buy that few readers second-guess.

常言道,三思而后行,但并非每件事都容许你有三思的时间。每个人都不得不连续地做出瞬间决断,格莱德威尔引用最新的神经科学与心理学研究成果,以及大量实例说明不要小觑这些不想之想,瞬间决定是正确的,丝毫不比三思后行逊色。本书堪称2005年美国实用科普类图书畅销榜的冠军之作。


 

6. The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell(扫描版下载

Gladwell's other entry on this list, right behind Blink, is proof that you don't need a Robert Langdon to make a best-selling franchise. The pop sociologist's first book, 2002's The Tipping Point, makes the case that ideas can spread like viruses, passing from a few initial vectors until they reach critical mass and "change the world." As in Blink, Gladwell marshals an impressive array of examples (like teen smoking or New York City crime rates) to prove his point. A master of explaining sociology to laypeople, few other writers can make you feel smarter while flying at 35,000 ft.

7. The Five People You Meet in Heaven, Mitch Albom(PDF和HTML格式文件下载)(有声MP3下载)(电影下载

Mitch Albom's 1997 best seller, the elegiac Tuesdays with Morrie, should have come with its own box of Kleenex, but it's likely too old to crack the past five years' Top 10. His equally sentimental 2004 book, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, is another matter, however. The tale of the lessons an old man learns in the afterlife, with the aid of the titular quintet, clocks in at just 198 pages — an easy dose of schmaltziness just the right size for a single long-haul trip. Just don't let the flight attendants see you cry.

《你在天堂里遇见的五个人》让每一个读完这本书的人都成了锁链中的一环,分享着同一个秘密:天堂里,会有五个人,为了五段不同的记忆,等候你长大,相爱、衰老、死亡,等待着解答你最后的疑问。因为,我们每一个人都会影响到另一个人,世界上各式各样的故事,说到底都是同一个。当它是本闲书,可以消遣,可欣赏作者的细致与独到,当它是课本,可跟着走上一段,直到自己成为智者。那五次相遇,如同五声寒山钟声。就当它是一次清夜扪心,一次大汗后的冲淋。 —— 著名作家陈村鼎力推荐并为本书作序

8. Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert(网友分享《Eat Pray Love》读后感)(小说中文版下载)[小说英文版下载]

Eat, Pray, Love is the 2006 memoir of writer Elizabeth Gilbert's trip to Italy, India and Indonesia. It also covers Gilbert's unraveling marriage, divorce and subsequent attempts to rebuild and redefine her life — par for the course on this list. Still, it's the only bona fide travel book to crack the Top 10. Destination envy, anyone?

108个短篇象征了灵魂探索、自我发现之旅。到意大利品尝美食,尽享感官的满足,在世上最好的披萨与美酒的陪伴下,灵魂就此再生。她到了印度,与瑜伽士的接触,洗涤了她混乱的身心。巴厘岛上,她寻得了身心的平衡。在这一整年追寻快乐与虔诚之间的平衡中,她终于发现:“拯救我的人,并非王子,而是我自己操控我,拯救我。”

9. The Last Templar, Raymond Khoury PDF+HTML格式下载)(电影下载

Murder at a famous art museum. A secretive sect fighting an ancient war to reveal explosive secrets about Christianity. Sound familiar? Raymond Khoury's 2005 debut may seem a shameless knockoff of The Da Vinci Code, but its success proves that being the poor man's Dan Brown is enough to make Khoury a very rich man indeed.

这是一本引人入胜,情节跌荡而又充满玄幻的上乘之作。在一次充满纷争,历尽艰险的宗教之旅中,每一个人都被置于现实与历史,信仰与颠覆,神秘与阴谋,生还与弃绝之间的无休无止的斡旋之中。溯源到十字军东征,传袭着圣殿骑士那个无人知晓的骇人秘密,各路势力在生死对决中都为了最终能够掌握这个秘密。于是,故事的时间从公元1291年蔓延到了当今……故事的地点从繁华绚烂的美国纽约一路拓展到了神秘的梵蒂冈,深入充满险境的土耳其,最终又抵达荒芜人迹的希腊群岛…… 但这一切没有停止,一切仍在继续,等待他们的是一个石破天惊的奇闻巨秘……

 

10. State of Fear, Michael Crichton((PDF+LIT格式下载)

Without Michael Crichton, it's likely we wouldn't have the word technothriller. And in an earlier era, his ripping yarns of science gone wrong like Jurassic Park and Congo dominated the departure lounge — as well as the beach, pool, commuter train and bedside table. As it is, one of Crichton's last books, 2004's State of Fear and its cast of villainous eco-terrorists out to save the world by destroying it, has enough staying power to round out the bottom of this list. Though the author died in 2008, his final finished novel, Pirate Latitudes, will be released in late November.
  
高科技悬念小说《恐惧状态》:作者毕业于哈佛大学人类学专业,获得过埃德加·爱伦坡悬念小说奖,被誉为“高科技惊险小说之父”。20世纪90年代出版了他影响力最大的一本小说《侏罗纪公园》。 (书名:State of Fear,作者:Michael Crichton,小说类第四名。)
