    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...

    The Phantom Of The Opera

    Written by Gaston Leroux,it is a French Gothic novel that has spawned the famous show, and is considered a true horror classic. The suspense is great, the passion, the tragic hero, it is a beautifully written book that will surely be a constant page turner.

    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.
