Against Empathy by Paul Bloom

If you have slipped into auto-pilot mode lately, sucked under by the demands of a busy schedule, this great little book might be just the thing to get you thinking again. Why ? Because its provocative premise goes against the grain, opening the door to a great debate.

Against Empathy: The Case for Rational Compassion
(152.4 BLO) by Paul Bloom has certainly caught my attention and will hopefully also make it onto your own reading list.

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Safety or adventure ? Which would you plump for and how far would you go to escape a toxic environment ? Caraval (F GAR) is a magical tale of two sisters with very different outlooks on life. It is set on a secluded island in an enchanted world, where the line between reality and fantasy blurs rapidly as the story progresses. In Legend’s world, nothing is what it seems; wishes and clues are exchanged for one’s innermost secrets. Adventure and intrigue lurk around every corner. Only the fastest can win. Yet the tale of Caraval is not spun as a contest but rather as a quest. For Tella is to be the prize this year.  The pressure is on, for Scarlett has five days to find her sister before the game is over and Tella disappears forever.

Some may find the world-building a little weak, especially if they have read The Night Circus, but Caravel remains a singularly captivating story. We shall definitely be purchasing the sequel, Legendary, when it is comes out in May!
