Books that you'll be glad were never written...

1) Click Tomorrow Now!
A man discovers an on-line search engine that has information about future events. It saves him from financial disaster by way of helping him earn a fortune through informed stock speculation, but also results in negative outcome, when he learns of an affair his wife has with a friend, and that she is planning on leaving him. At the end, he googles his own death, when the search engine displays the very second.

2) A Streetcar Named Désirée
Some months before his retirement, streetcar-conductor Stanislaus Kowalski, who had never in his life missed a day at work, falls ill with the flu. When a young substitute-conductor takes over his shift, he crashes the man's streetcar.
Motivated by the great damage done to the beloved old engine, the transport firm is planning to replace the old model with a new one. But they hadn't reckoned with Stanislaus. Not only does he refuse to be schooled for the new streetcar, but he attempts to rescue his old one from its terrible fate: he barricades himself in the terminal where the cars are kept overnight, taking the boss's young son as a hostage. During hours and hours of negotiations with the outside world, a friendship develops between the old man and the youth (who is later to set down the whole story). The conductor's lonely life, and total dependence on his job as his only pastime is rendered in beautifully affecting colors, and after a long night, he desperately throws himself before the replacement model.

unterhaltsam wärs nur, wenn mans nicht ernst meint.
