Captain Corelli's Mandolin by Louis De Bernieres
Published by Secker & Warburg, 1994

This incredible novel by Louis De Bernieres set on the idyllic Greek island of Cephallonia follows the lives of Dr. Iannis and his beautiful daughter Pelagia from the peaceful days before World War 2 through the Italian occupation of the island to the present day. Corelli's Mandolin works very well as a love story, a war story and the madness it brings with it. Well worth persevering to the end. A very enjoyable and humourous read.
