Corelli's Mandolin
Corelli's Mandolin | Louis de Bernieres
The Greek island of Cephallonia - peaceful, remote, famed for its beauty, its light, its mythic history - and only just beginning to enter the twentieth century when the tide of World War II rolls onto its shores. This is the setting for Louis de Bernieres's lyrical, heartbreaking, and hilarious chronicle of the days and nights of the island's inhabitants over fifty tumultuous years. "It was an island filled with gods, " writes Dr. Iannis, Cephallonia's healer and fledgling historian. And though the people who fill the island in 1940 may be less divine than their Olympian forebears, they are nonetheless divinely human, and none more so than the doctor's daughter, Pelagia. Willful, proud, independent, and beautiful, Pelagia finds herself between two men: Mandras, a handsome young fisherman, besotted with love for her but determined to permanently secure her love (and a dowry from her father) by finding "something to get to grips with" when he joins the resistance; and Captain Corelli, a charming, mandolin-playing, exceedingly reluctant officer of the Italian garrison that establishes the Axis presence on the island. Corelli is thought slightly mad in his passion for music and the gentleness of his troops' "occupation" of Cephallonia. Yet his madness quickly begins to make life seem more "various, rich, and strange" for everyone who encounters him - especially, and most confusingly, for Pelagia... But with the arrival of the Germans and then of the Communists, life on the island becomes more chaotic and barbaric, more certainly a part of the process by which "history repeats itself, first as tragedy, and then again as tragedy." Pelagia's life, once rife with possibility, an idyll of time,becomes a long search for something fine and lasting amid loss and separation, deprivation and fear. Her story of love found and changed and misplaced, and the story of the life she shares with the people of Cephallonia - a life permanently altered by the war and its brutal after

This is beautiful Asos on the Greek island of Kefalonia my home for 5 days. I‘m so glad I waited to read this book in the setting it was written it made it all the more magical! I fell in love with the book characters and the place. Although I must admit I almost gave up on the book as I disliked the first quarter but I‘m glad I persevered as it was so worth it! 💙🤍

#roll100 picks for June. Although I'm very behind 🙈
What have I been doing with myself all day? I haven't finished any books yet this month! 😬

Of these, I have the highest hopes for Captain Corelli's Mandolin. It was recommended to me by the same person that suggested I read the Liveships 💕 (She has proven to be trustworthy! 😄) I also LOVE the cover for The Institute.

First, let me say that I LOVED the movie (which is why that's the picture! 😍) However...the book. 🙄 I bailed at 25%. It's just...BORING. OMG. I think if it had stayed on the characters I knew from the movie (which of course it wouldn't, I know that, the book being the correct version! I'm just saying!), it would have been fine, but of the 25%, half of that was of characters I couldn't place and those were the parts that were dragging SO MUCH. 😴

Nikki_E I read this for a college class and I loved the book and HATED the movie. (Though it‘s because I hate Nic Cage). 9mo
kplovesbooks @Nikki_E Haha! Yep, that would do it, then. Plus I'm of the belief that whatever you do first...read the book, watch the movie ..that is then the "correct" version in your head and then the other is obviously different. ? 9mo

This read helped me realize why I adore historic fiction so much.

The details of war are repulsive and terrible to read about, which is why they MUST be documented and widely spread - to prevent us from reliving our past mistakes.

Bernières‘ ability to weave hate and love proves that the world is not black and white, and war does not make good and bad men, only good and bad deeds.

It took me quite a while to get into this book especially since Captain Corelli does not enter the picture for quite some time but once I did I was hooked. I very much enjoyed the relationship of Corelli and Pelagia and how it reflected time and place. War brings people to together and tears them apart which was evident on this small Greek island. #1001books

I brought Corelli‘s Mandolin along with me to Greece because I love reading books “on sight”—they make me feel like the setting is coming alive. And I pressed wildflowers from the island of Mykonos into it as I took it along with me everywhere. The story is beautiful, funny and heartbreaking—and while the ending was romantic, it was a little frustrating too. Still, i cried through the last third of it which means it got me!

LeahBergen Perfect destination read. 👏🏻👏🏻 4y

A book to immerse yourself in. I read this in Kefalonia with goats roaming nearby & Homer‘s sea below - it feels unchanged since the 50s. So I really enjoyed the sense of place & historical details. The characters are vivid, range from comic to tragic, but even if caricatures, they ring true. A little sentimental & dragged in parts, but I liked the tone & gentle humour. A moving, drily funny & entertaining story & different perspective of WW2.

ClairesReads Loved this book and read it first on a European beach too 😍 5y

This book was huge in the 90s. (I seem to be doing 90s throwbacks this week!) It‘s a chunkster and a bit of an epic. Who else remembers reading this? It was an emotional roller coaster for me ???? Loved it and should reread.

“Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day [...] That is just being ‘in love,‘ which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.”

Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is.
