Read full description of the books La chica del columpio:

He aquí el relato obsesivo e inquietante de una apasionada historia de amor, desarrollada hacia los años sesenta. Alan Desland, que vive en la ciudad rural de Newbury, ha heredado el negocio de su padre, de cerámica antigua y moderna. Alan parece ser un joven equilibrado, de excelente posición, aunque ligeramente insociable. Con ocasión de un viaje de negocios a Copenhague conoce a Karin Forster, joven alemana de extraordinaria belleza. Su amor es mutuo e instantáneo. Pero, aparte la apasionada y vibrante intensidad del amor que sienten mutuamente, ¿qué sabe Alan realmente de Karin, de su vida y sus orígenes? Después de su matrimonio, celebrado en Florida, y una vez de regreso en Inglaterra, Karin adquiere, casi por una insignificancia, en una subasta local, la figura de porcelana conocida como “La chica del columpio”, rara cerámica de incalculable valor. Su felicidad debería ser absoluta, pero no ocurre así. A medida que un creciente temor por todo lo que se han dicho mutuamente va invadiendo su vida de forma paulatina, el escenario comienza a ensombrecerse. Es un drama que va creciendo en tensión hasta alcanzar un clímax sobrecogedor y espantoso. Al igual que todas las novelas de Richard Adams, la historia, a un tiempo extática y hondamente aterradora, presenta varios interrogantes significativos. ¿De qué mundo procede Karin? ¿De nuestro mundo familiar o de algun lejano reino de mito pagano? ¿Sucedió en realidad o fue tan sólo otra más de las pesadillas psíquicas de Alan, la más diabólica y destructiva de todas?

Ebook La chica del columpio read Online! Adams was born in Newbury, Berkshire. From 1933 until 1938 he was educated at Bradfield College. In 1938 he went up to Worcester College, Oxford to read Modern History. On 3 September 1939 Neville Chamberlain announced that the United Kingdom was at war with Germany. In 1940 Adams joined the British Army, in which he served until 1946. He received a class B discharge enabling him to return to Worcester to continue his studies for a further two years (1946-48). He took the degree of Bachelor of Arts in 1948 and of Master of Arts in 1953.[2]

He was a senior civil servant who worked as an Assistant Secretary for the Department of Agriculture, later part of the Department of the Environment, from 1948 to 1974. Since 1974, following publication of his second novel, Shardik, he has been a full-time author.

He originally began telling the story of Watership Down to his two daughters, Juliet and Rosamund, and they insisted he publish it as a book. It took two years to write and was rejected by thirteen publishers. When Watership Down was finally published, it sold over a million copies in record time in both the United Kingdom and the United States. Watership Down has become a modern classic and won both the Carnegie Medal and the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize in 1972. To date, Adams' best-known work has sold over 50 million copies world-wide, earning him more than all his other books put together.

As of 1982, he was President of the RSPCA.

He also contested the 1983 general election, standing as an Independent Conservative in the Spelthorne constituency on a platform of opposition to fox hunting.

He now lives, with his wife, Elizabeth, in Whitchurch, Hampshire, Hampshire, within 10 miles (16 km) of his birthplace.
