Captain Corelli’s Mandolin – Done!

I finished Captain Corelli’s Mandolin! I will openly admit, I have never cried so much whilst reading a book before. I enjoyed reading it so much, and I think any book that causes such a reaction deserves kudos.

I highly recommend this book, although I would suggest you have a box of tissues at hand! I was tempted to watch the film but I’ve heard it doesn’t do the book justice at all, which is a shame ๐Ÿ™

I think Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell will be my next read ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I didn’t like Cloud Atlas at all (just tooo weird), but i like all of his other books – number9dream and Black Swan Green are great

  2. Oh good!
    Good that you enjoyed it, and good that I’m not the only one who it made cry. Books rarely make me cry so it was a bit out of the blue.

    I agree with Katie, Cloud Atlas is weird. I persevered and finished it but I don’t know why it was raved about so much. Never read any of his other stuff, maybe I should try some.

  3. Yup read the book and haven’t seen the film, I heard it wasn’t that great. I should probably stop being such a book adaptation snob and watch it anyhow!
