"After three years working as a young vet in rural Aberdeenshire, Hugh Cran decided that it was time for a change. He got it. He took a post in Kenya and, forty years later, he's still there, still working, still loving every exasperating, challenging, unexpected moment.This is a page-turning account of working as a vet at the sharp end.Cattle owned by the Maasai herdsmen or the white settlers might take up most of Hugh's time, but these cattle are assailed by lightning strike, snake bites, disease passed on by zebra and wildebeest. He's up against sun cancer, witch doctors - who knows what to expect next?Travelling miles on rough roads, Hugh never knows if he will be peforming surgery on dirty sacks, beseiged by every species of Kenyan insect, by the light of a failing car-headlamp!But the colourful people who frequent Hugh's Nukuru practice, the sheer vitality of the Kenyan scene and the rewarding nature of the grinding task in hand, keep him answering that persistent phone, day and night, and heading off into the unknown."

Christopher Boone ist fünfzehn Jahre, drei Monate und zwei Tage alt. Er kennt alle Länder und deren Hauptstädte sowie sämtliche Primzahlen bis 7507. Er liebt die Farbe Rot, hasst hingegen Gelb und Braun. Unordnung, Überraschungen und fremde Menschen versetzen ihn in Panik, denn Christopher leidet an einer leichten Form von Autismus. Als aber der Pudel in Nachbars Garten mit einer Mistgabel umgebracht wird, beginnt Christopher, aus seiner fest gefügten, kleinen Welt auszubrechen: Mutig stellt er den schändlichen Verbrecher und erfährt außerdem, was es heißt, in der Welt der Erwachsenen zu leben ...

Gefangen im eigenen Körper. Martin ist zwölf, als ihn eine rätselhafte Krankheit befällt: Er verliert seine Sprache, die Kontrolle über seinen Körper, ist nach wenigen Monaten völlig hilflos. Die Ärzte sagen seinen Eltern, er werde für immer schwerstbehindert bleiben. Was niemand ahnte: Im Kokon seines Körpers verbirgt sich ein schrittweise erwachender Geist und eine zutiefst lebendige Seele. Als Martin aufwacht, kann er nur mit den Augen Lebenszeichen geben. Eine Pflegerin erkennt schließlich, dass er sehr wohl bei Bewusstsein ist und alles um sich herum mitbekommt. Dann endlich erhält er die Hilfe, die er benötigt, um sich ganz ins Leben zurück zu kämpfen. Martin Pistorius erzählt bewegend und absolut authentisch darüber, was ihn in den elf Jahren der Hilflosigkeit am Leben gehalten hat. Sein dramatisches Buch über seine Erfahrungen zeigt, dass mit der Unterstützung einer Familie, die nicht aufgibt und einem großen Lebenswillen sogar Wunder möglich sind.
