"I was walking along a path with two friends - the sun was setting - suddenly the sky turned blood red. I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence - there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city. My friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety - and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature." Edvard Munch

Art Collector claims $120 million Scream Has Nazi History | Latest Fine Art News | #Scoopit | #EdvardMunch | #JKLFA
NEW YORK, 2 May 2012 – Auction history was made at Sotheby’s when Edvard Munch’s iconic masterpiece The Scream sold for $119,922,500 in New York, marking a new world record for any work of art at auction. The iconic work is one of the most instantly recognizable images in both art history and popular culture, perhaps secondly to the Mona Lisa.
Edvard Munch’s 'The Scream' (1895), Sells for Record 119.9 Million at Sotheby’s [Gallerist NY: May 2012]
Edvard Munch’s angst-filled masterpiece "The Scream" rocketed to a record $119,922,500 at Sotheby’s Wednesday evening
The only privately owned version of Edvard Munch’s The Scream – one of the most recognisable paintings in history – has set a new world record, selling for $US119.9 million at Sotheby’s in New York.
It is likely that the sale of one of the versions of Edvard Munchs The Scream at $119,922,500 at Sothebys Impressionist & Modern Art auction last night prompted more than a few shouts from members of the art community. The sales price sets a new
The Museum of Modern Art, New York, will unveil an exhibit of the $119.9 million Edvard Munch masterpiece next week that New York billionaire Leon Black purchased at Sotheby's, the highest price ever paid for a work at auction.However, relatives of German-Jewish banker Hugo Simon, who allegedly owned the work in the 1920s and ’30s, came forward before the Sotheby’s auctionto contest its sale, and they say it’s wrong for the museum to display it without at least explaining its tragic history.Rafael Cardoso, a Brazilian curator and Simon’s great-grandson, says his forbears had to sell the treasure when he was declared an enemy of the state and driven from Germany after the Nazis came to power in 1933.Simon, a top collector, consigned the piece to a Swiss gallery. He and his family escaped to Paris. And when the Nazis invaded France in May 1940, they acquired fake passports and immigrated to Brazil, where he died in 1950.Read more about this here:http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/manhattan/hidden_horror_of_scream_opFkL58bF8ghbjXmZmRNRLhttp://bloggers.com/ | Fine Art News

The Book Thief Read July 2014 for Breadalbane book club. WWII from a different perspective. What is Death haunted by? Death the narrator tells the story of a young German girl who's family hid a Jew. She is one of the people left behind that haunts him.
All I knew about this book when it was recommended for my son's book club (when he was 12) was that it was narrated by Death. Hmmmm. Sounded dark, so I thought I'd better investigate. The book club ended up not reading it, but I listened to the audiobook and declared it my favorite book of the year!
Just finished this book today. Narrated by Death, this book tells the story of a young girl in Nazi Germany. Amazing book
"The Book Thief" Markus Zusak. Fiction. The book is set in Nazi, Germany. It describes a young girl's relationship with foster parents, the other resident's of their neighborhood, and a Jewish fist-fighter who hides in her home during WWII. New York Bestseller List (2006) for over 230 weeks. One of my favorite books because it is so well-written.
My favorite book! this is the most amazing book I've ever read

On Monday night I sat down to write about the young adult pick for the March session of The Phenomenally Indecisive Book Club. There were points I needed to address and suggestions I wanted to rece...
Oh, my goodness. I have been reading and hearing about The Book Thief by Markus Zusak for a long time, but I've just now finally read it myself. To be perfectly honest, I picked up my copy over a year ago at the used bookstore in my library and even though I had heard how wonderful it was, I wasn't in a hurry to read it. I have so many books on my "To Read..." list that I have to pick what sounds good that day and a book about the holocaust didn't exactly sound like a fun read. However, when it was my turn to host book club, I went with this one. (Everyone loved it!) And I was right, a book about a young girl's perspective of the holocaust in 1940s Germany wasn't what I would call fun, but it was brilliant. Zusak is an extraordinary author and The Book Thief is beautifully written. The haunting imagery he uses brings the reader right in to the story and the characters are so well developed they feel like friends. Even Death, the narrator of this enthralling novel, seems more like a companion and advocate than the evil Grim Reaper so often envisioned. I think the most shocking thing about this book, for me anyway, was that it wasn't pure fiction. How could this have really happened? I have a simple understanding of the holocaust that probably most publicly educated Americans have. I've read about it, I've seen documentaries (though I admit I skipped Schindler's List because I didn't want those images in my head), but through this book, my eyes have been opened to so much more. It is easy to lump all Germans at that time into the Nazi box, but I now see that there were many Germans who were not in agreement with Hitler and his ideas. The fear was so strong that it was difficult for most people to stand and fight. It is possible that they never knew that the people standing on either side of them wanted to fight, too. Of course, the next logical question to me is this: What can we do to make sure nothing like it ever happens again? We must be involved with and aware of the world around us. We must speak up. We must help those in need and never turn our backs. And now, I must get off my soap box and go read something lighter. This was a wonderful book and one I really believe everyone should read. Have you read it? Tell me what you thought.

20 Brilliant Authors Whose Work Was Initially Rejected
Lord of the Flies - William Golding-How could I forget this book. I recall being fascinated and disturbed while reading this as a child. Great examination of human nature. Memories.....
Books I Ve, Human Nature, Books Books, Favorite Books, High Schools, I Ve Read
Lord of the Flies / William Golding-- I loved it when it was required reading in high school. I read it again when I was 50 and still thought it was a very good book.
Lord of the flies - William Golding. The behaviour of the people stranded on the remote place having to do things to survive that they never thought possible. FAC GOL
"The theme is an attempt to trace the defects of society back to the defects of human nature. The moral is that the shape of society must depend on the ethical nature of the individual, and not on any political system however apparently logical or respectable." William Golding
Lord of the Flies by William Golding is instinctual and primal in it's nature and provides us a deeper look at human nature and our animal instincts that are suppressed by our "civilized society."
Lord of the Flies - William Golding. I read this in high school and it was so disturbing that I still remember it.
One of my favorite books I read for high school. I will be adding it to my collection soon.
Lord of the Flies. William Golding. One of the most unforgettable reads ever!
I was searching my wish list and my to be read list on Paperbackswap.com when I found that when I had added my copy of Lord of the Flies by William Golding I had not paid attention to the fact that it added a different edition that I actually own. I only know the difference by the cover art. I have the traditional (or so I believe) that is quite torn up and bought at a used bookstore a year or two after I graduated high school because it took three readings for me to enjoy the book, which brings to mind something someone had told me once about having to be in the right time of your life to enjoy certain books, but that's an entirely different post. My cover looks something like this, please add wear and tear: I feel this cover displays the point of the book very well. A small boy pretty decked out in jungle attire, with some bugs on a plate made from a rather large leaf. No smile on the boys face makes it known that he's probably not happily in the jungle clothes and place that he is. Which is generally the point of the book, very generally, but general enough. As I searched through the TBR list on my PBS account I saw this cover: The cover on the left looks nothing like what I have ever thought of the book to be about. But it's still a kick ass cover! If they would have handed me this book in high school I would have gone into the book with a much...more open mind. I know we all say "Don't judge a book by it's cover" but sometimes it's just so hard to do. The cover on the left seems like something a teenager would want to read. It's got a giant fly on it!! I can't say that the cover describes what the book is about at all, but it does draw a potential readers attention. So, after seeing that there was more than one cover out there I Googled Lord of the Flies to see what other awesome cover art there was, and there's plenty. Most of it even more plain than the one I own but the one that truly caught my attention: While the book cover above is equally as awesome as the last one I am not as impressed with it for some weird reason. It's just my opinion. Though I will say if a high school teacher wants teenage boys to find this book intriguing this is the cover to buy. How much more "Woah Dude!! This is sooooo coool" could you get? A bloody pigs head? Yeah, that'd get my younger brother into it right now. While it displays an aspect of the books plot I don't feel that it describes any more than the second cover. Overall the first cover does represent the books plot the best, but the last two would be more grabbing if it were on a shelf of mine, or anyone's for that matter.
