I've just finished re-reading this marvellous book and wondered if there had been any discussion on it previously.

From first to last page it keeps going with sympathetic characters and the plot weaving from history to personal drama to romance.

Any takers?

I havt not read this yet, but fully intend to.


I've so far avoided the film as I had heard it compared unfavourably with the book. I didn't want to be disappointed. I'm not sure if I quite saw Nicolas Cage as Capt Correlli although I'm a big fan but Penelope Cruz as Pelagia seemed like a good choice. I could definitely visualize her in that role. Which was nice...
