    Captain Corelli's Mandolin

    The book arrived out of the blue from my father. He had written in the cover, "probably the best book i have read in the last 20 years". He is sadly dead now, but was very well read. He even read James Joyce's Ulysses, which is quite an undertaking. So i read Captain Corelli and...

    I Have Two Similar Books.

    The Black Death by Philip Ziegler and The Last Days of Pompeii by Baron Edward Bulwer Lytton. Both are about disasters that took place in a different place and time. They are both great escapes. I bet those people thought it was the end.
