Fodor's Ireland 2011

by Fodor's

Get inspired and plan your next trip with Fodor's ebook travel guide to Ireland. Intelligent Planning: Discover all of the essential, up-to-date travel insights you expect in a Fodor's guide, including Fodor's Choice dining and lodging, top experiences and attractions, and detailed planning advice. Easy Navigation for E-Readers: Whether you're reading this ebook from start to finish or jumping from chapter to chapter as you develop your itinerary, Fodor's makes it easy to find the information you need with a single touch. In addition to a traditional main table of contents for the ebook, each chapter opens with its own table of contents, making it easy to browse. Full-Color Photos and Maps: It's hard not to fall in love with Ireland as you flip through a vivid full-color photo album. Explore the layout of city centers and popular neighborhoods with easy-to-read full-color maps. Plus get an overview of Irish geography with the convenient atlas at the end of the ebook. What's Covered? Get to Know Ireland: Kerry and Limerick Counties are nestled in the southwest of Ireland, with sights that top every tourist's must-see list. Make sure you have your camera on hand as you explore the brazen scenic coastal drive of the Ring of Kerry, Ireland's prettiest village, Adare, and walk through Killarney's purple mountains in the Gap of Dunloe. In the southeast, follow in the footsteps of St. Patrick at the Rock of Cashel, dig the ducal lifestyle at Lismore, and romp in the brisk waters of the pristine beaches around the fishing village of Ardmore. After exploring Cork City, be sure to take in the treasures of County Cork---from Blarney Castle to the breathtaking views over Bantry Bay. Set with postcard-perfect villages like Doolin, the lunar landscape of the Burren, and the towering Cliffs of Moher, County Clare are pure tourist gold. Connemara and County Mayo remain the most Irish part of Ireland. Connemara is a misty bogland, studded with deep-blue lakes and distant purple hills while outside the main towns of Castlebar and Westport, the rest of County Mayo has long empty roads leading to isolated shorelines and stunning vistas. The Northwest region of Ireland covers the most northern part of Ireland's Atlantic coastline. From the varied cultural footprints in County Slingo like the Yeats Trail, many travelers head north to Leitrim, a county best know for its lakes flowing in the River Shannon, and then on to County Donegal--isolated, beautiful, and famed for its Celtic inheritance. Northern Ireland has positively bloomed since the peace dividend of recent times. From the beauty of Antrim's coastline to the vibrant cultural renaissance of Derry and Belfast, the region has emerged into a present full of promise and possibility. Cross the Giant's Causeway, slide into a cozy snug in a pub on Belfast's Golden Mile, and trail after Eire's "wee folk" in the shimmery Glens of Antrim. Most travelers to Ireland will not be able to resist a stop over to Dublin, Ireland's capital, and one of Europe's most popular city-break destinations. With magnificent museums including the Hugh Lane and the National Museum, Georgian architecture, and of course, hundreds of pubs, the city's pleasures are uncontainable. Note: This ebook edition is adapted from Fodor's Ireland 2011 but differs in some content. Additionally, the ebook edition includes photographs and maps that will appear on black-and-white devices but are optimized for devices that support full-color images.

The Fog

by James Herbert

OUT OF THE YELLOWISH FOG A MAN EMERGED. HIS EYES WERE FIXED STRAIGHT AHEAD AND HIS LIPS WERE FROZEN IN A SMILE. IN HIS HANDS HE CARRIED THE STILL-BLEEDING HEAD OF HIS WIFE.... In an exclusive private school, students sexually assaulted and mutilated their teachers, then savagely turned on one another. In a lonely room, an old lady was shredded and eaten by her beloved pet cats...in the streets of the city, mass copulation and insane slaying spread from block to block...

A group of scientists in an insulated underground laboratory worked around the clock to find out what the fog was and how to stop it, but time was running out for mankind...

Fog

by Caroline B. Cooney

Will Maine's historic Schooner Inne Bed and Breakfast be a safe haven for the island kids boarding during the school year--or the end of them all?Christina Romney is thirteen, with a personality that matches her unruly but charming tri-colored hair. She is about to start seventh grade, and for kids from Maine's Burning Fog Island, that means leaving their little white schoolhouse for regular classrooms and life on the mainland. Everyone assures Christina it will be a fantastic year. Mainland school offers great advantages, after all: extracurricular activities other than boating and fishing, a gym, a cafeteria, and more kids her age. Best of all, this year the boarding students will live at the historic Schooner Inne, a former sea captain's house (and now a bed and breakfast) recently bought by the school's charismatic new principal and his wife, Mr. and Mrs. Shevvington.But Christina is apprehensive. She adores the wildness and excitement of her island life. Boarding with her island friends will surely help: Anya, a beautiful senior, fifteen-year-old Benji, the aspiring lobsterman, and his crush-worthy younger brother Michael. But Christina's apprehension sharpens when Benji and Michael aren't as friendly as they used to be on the island, and Anya starts acting so strangely it seems she is slowly losing her mind. Christina is increasingly certain the Shevvingtons are behind all of these changes. But no one else can see the Shevvingtons' eerie behavior--not other teachers, not her parents, not even her fellow island kids. Is Anya the one going crazy in the Schooner Inne--or is it Christina? This ebook features an illustrated biography of Caroline B. Cooney including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.

Eventually, the momentum of Fog and Car's alternating narratives push the two characters out of their static life-cages towards different unreal conclusions, and the narratives' shifting styles finally find a stunning equilibrium in a troubled and subversive escapism
