Sinopsis

It is a very cold winter and there are many more birds around than usual. Nat is afraid, for the birds keep coming in their thousands and they are hungry. They want to kill. "Penguin Readers" is a series of simplified novels, film novelizations and original titles that introduce students at all levels to the pleasures of reading in English. Originally designed for teaching English as a foreign language, the series' combination of high interest level and low reading age makes it suitable for both English-speaking teenagers with limited reading skills and students of English as a second language. Many titles in the series also provide access to the pre-20th century literature strands of the National Curriculum English Orders. "Penguin Readers" are graded at seven levels of difficulty, from "Easystarts" with a 200-word vocabulary, to Level 6 (Advanced) with a 3000-word vocabulary. In addition, titles fall into one of three sub-categories: "Contemporary", "Classics" or "Originals". At the end of each book there is a section of enjoyable exercises focusing on vocabulary building, comprehension, discussion and writing.Some titles in the series are available with an accompanying audio cassette, or in a book and cassette pack. Additionally, selected titles have free accompanying "Penguin Readers Factsheets" which provide stimulating exercise material for students, as well as suggestions for teachers on how to exploit the Readers in class.

3 reseñas sobre el libro THE BIRDS

Joya de suspenso, una vez daphne de Maurier te mantiene en vilo con cada frase, con cada linea, te obliga a regresar y revisar si no olvidaste algo entre lineas, entre frases, tratando de subsanar la angustia que provoca cada nuevo avance de este cuento corto, inspiracion para la pelicula de Mr Hitchcock, pero creo que al leerlo deja un mejor sabor de boca y tematica para largo tiempo, inacabada, mayor impulso hacia esa puerta abierta que es la conjetura


Lo primero que descubrimos es que Hitchcock se tomó muchas libertades en su película, ya que sólo reconocemos el concepto de los pájaros atacando a las personas por razones misteriosas. Más allá de esta digresión, la autora logra el suspenso, la angustia y la necesidad de seguir adelante en la historia hasta una solución que se diluye en nuestra imaginación, pero preserva el espíritu de zozobra que sostiene todo el relato.


Maravillosa historia muy bien llevada al cine. Cada uno de los libros de Du Maurier es un diamante ante mis ojos.
