The story takes place in Oxford, when Dr. Janet Leighton, the owner of a clinic and a big house, appears dead. She had changed her will and she left all her money to “The Help Africa Live Organization”.
Inspector Williams and Sergeant Miller of the Oxford police wanted to know who the murderer was. They asked people close to Dr. Leighton. They were her husband Simon, her son Chris or Dr. Collins who worked for Leighton´s Clinic.

The Nanny Diaries

Publicado en Novedades Inglés por CRISTINA CABAL DIAZ a las 21:18 h.

Actores: Scarlett Johansson, Laura Linney, Paul Giamatti, Chris Evans, Donna Murphy, Idioma: Inglés
Subtítulos : sí                                  
Tipo de fondo: DVD
Nivel: Avanzado

 Sinopsis:

is September, at the startof the academic year, and runs to Nanny’s graduation and the X’s vacation to Nantucket in late June. The film compresses all the events of the plot into a summer, changing some events so that the book’s Halloween party takes place on the Fourth of July instead, and the X’s broken date comes on their anniversary rather than Valentine’s Day.

Many of the events in the film also occur in the novel, but not always in the same order. The conflict-resolution seminar was written for the film. Conversely the book had scenes later on where Mr. X’s girlfriend (”Ms. Chicago”) comes to sleep in the Xes’ apartment while the family was on vacation, and Nanny and Connie were expected to help cover her presence up. Nanny inadvertently misplaced $800 of Ms. Chicago’s money, making their telephone argument longer and more personally confrontational.

The end of the novel leaves more issues unresolved. Nanny is fired at night, and upon her return to the apartment discovers documentary evidence Mrs. X had been planning to fire her for several weeks. Mr. X does not come onto Nanny. Mrs. X’s pregnancy is not revealed as a ruse, and may be genuine. She does not leave her husband, and the fate of the marriage is unknown. The angry speech Annie makes to the nannycam is the speech Nanny gives but then erases in favor of a gentler speech urging the Xes to appreciate Grayer before it becomes too late.

The Rain before it Falls

Publicado en Novedades Inglés por CRISTINA CABAL DIAZ a las 19:13 h.

Título: The Rain before it Falls
Autor: Jonathan Coe
Idioma: Inglés
Tipo de fondo: Libro
Audio: No
Editorial: Penguin
Nivel: Lectura en versión original
Sinopsis:’What I want you to have, Imogen, above all, is a sense of your own history; a sense of where you come from, and of the forces that made you.’

Rosamund lies dying in her remote Shropshire home. But before she does so, she has one last task: to put on tape not just her own story but the story of the young blind girl, her cousin’s granddaughter, who turned up mysteriously at her party all those years ago. This is a story of generations, of the relationships within a family - and of what goes to make a child. Called “the best English novelist of his generation” by Nick Hornby, Jonathan Coe extends his range in this magnificent account of a Shropshire family in the last half of the twentieth century.
