#ThrowbackThursday. Captain Corelli's Mandolin


Bernières, Louis de "Captain Corelli's Mandolin" - 1994

My very first book club book. It definitely convinced me that it is worth discussing a book with a book club.

I think this story deserves more than a Hollywood movie, there are so many topics in the book itself, so many questions that come up. It certainly is one of those books that can be read more often than once.

We discussed this in our British Book Club in May 1999.

Read my original review here.


  1. And I'm sure the movie didn't do it justice.

    1. Not really. Though I did enjoy the scenery.
