I've heard of "Captain Corelli's Mandolin." Is it any good?

Emma said...

Yeah it is although I thought the ending was strange (maybe a little contrived). Overall a good read and if I found the film cheaply I'd probably buy that to watch.

Started reading Captain Corelli last year but kept getting disturbed. Have to try again. Was that on your DS?
