Captain Corelli's Mandolin, released simultaneously in the United States as Corelli's Mandolin, is a 1994 novel by the British writer Louis de Bernières, set on the Greek island of Cephalonia during the Italian and German occupation of the Second World War. The main characters are Antonio Corelli, an Italian army captain, and Pelagia, the daughter of the local physician, Dr Iannis.

Set in the beautiful island of Cephallonia (now Kefalonia) in Greece during World War II, Louis de Bernieres' (British, born 1954) Captain Corelli's Mandolin, first published in 1993, sizzles with love, music and honesty. Love here is not just the usual erotic love between a man and a woman. The main protagonist, the beautiful Pelagia is in love with the handsome gentleman, Mandras who joins the Greek guerilla.

Captain Corelli's Mandolin. Nicolas Cage is disastrously miscast in a dreary, drooping adaptation of the Louis de Bernières novel. The author Louis de Bernières became testily defensive about his alleged right-wing bias in the depiction of the Greek communist partisans, and, indeed, about his alleged disapproval of the film itself, which excises the difficult sex and politics and turns it into a holiday romance with silly voices on the beautiful sun-kissed island of Cephallonia. What a droopy, disappointing film this is.

Louis De Bernieres Pelagia and her father try their best to hate this Captain Corelli, who is.

Pelagia has grown up on the peaceful Greek island of Cephallonia with her father, a widower and rather eccentric doctor who has taught her to be strong and independent. Pelagia and her father try their best to hate this Captain Corelli, who is an Italian soldier and therefore one of their oppressors. The Pelagia and Corelli plot twist also left me feeling empty, like this book about a young woman finding her place in her world was all a waste, as she ended up pining away in unhappiness.

So promising initially, but ultimately deeply unsatisfying. The story's pace ends up being all wrong - after taking almost the entire book to cover just a couple of years, the author knocks some several decades into a mere few pages, giving the sense that having taken us on this long, long, drawn-out journey, wehadreallyjustbettergetitoverwith. Even if I had liked the ending (which I didn't), the rush to get there would still annoy me !

As someone who has been known to consume novels in mere hours, I rearely buy books - I borrow them instead. After countless recommendations, however, I picked up a copy of Louis de Bernieres' novel in an airport bookshop, and read the first sentence, to me always the yardstick of whether a book will be worth the read or not. 25 minutes later the shop assistant was asking me whether I wanted to buy it, a smile on her face. I did, and never have I been alternately amused, entertained, moved, educated and captivated by a novel to actually read it through to the finish without interruption - of any kind. I was near silent for the entire plane journey - an eight hour flight. The only sounds I made were stifled, tearful laughter, and stifled, tearful sobs.
Words will not suffice to describe Captain Corelli's Mandolin. Written in a richly lyrical style by a man in utter command of language (and not just English), the humour is infectious, the story compelling, the characters so fully fleshed it is almost as though you know them personally - and this of course means that the tragic events which do eventually follow strike home on the heart like nothing you will have read before or will read again. Tears do not roll down my cheeks that easily, yet Carlo's heroism has stayed with me weeks afterwards, as has Corelli's spirit, Pelagia's beauty and Doctor Iannis' indefatigable spirit.
Yes, the last 70 pages add an epilogue that seems a touch out of place - maybe John Madden's film will address this - but nothing can detract from the humanity that has gone before, or the pathos and the sheer beauty of de Bernieres' prose. This is the greatest novel I have ever had the fortune to pick up and anyone with a romantic bone in their body should have it as compulsory reading. In a word? Wonderful.

Reader - bear with it ... takes a long time for the plot to be resolved. Worth it, though!

One of the best books I have ever read, and I have read thousands. I am not a big fan of novels preferring non-fiction. I particularly enjoyed the author's ability of the to not sentimentalize or overdramatize or mock. I enjoyed the historical context, and now know more about that area of the world than I did previously, and alternatives views of the WW11. The wry humorous most appropriate. I am know reading The Birds have no wings and also enjoying that. What a great author.

A lovely story that really does evoke plenty of memories for me of my trips to Greece. The characters are wonderfully rich and you can't help but settle into their lifestyles. The prose is easy to read and the hardships they suffer make this story a real page-turner.
I ordered this book as a gift to my sister, who is enamored of the movie version. She enjoyed reading it.
