Cephalonia - Ithaca - As the Seagull Flies anavasi by Anavasi

As somebody, who meanwhile lives on Kefalonia, I can only recommend this book. Newcomers like insiders will learn much more about the more secluded parts of the island, find uncommon views even unto common places, much different from other photobooks about Kefalonia.
It shows beautifully the sometimes harsh reality of the landscape and gave us - thinking we've already explored all that is to explore - in combination with a detailed map some more ideas for "lazy summer tours" ...
Captain Corelli's Island: Cephallonia by Andy Harris

... it was surely not, not in his time and history (so you have to read the book "Captain Corelli's Mandolin" now).
But a dream it is in itself, this island. I should know, I live on and with it. So the book shows very much what life here is all about, and it goes rather into detail than grandeur.
For someone planning an trip onto the island of Kephallonia it is a mouthwatering exercise, for the tourist who was here already it is a reminder what was missed to be experienced, and for someone like me ... now, I think I will know now what to give as a good-bye-gift to all my friends visiting me here ...

Three stars mean "It's okay", and that's what it is. Not more.
I was disappointed, and only approximately two times while reading the book I thought : Oh, that's interesting!
I specifically found that the author was going over and over the same things, repeating and repeating himself, and referring back and forth to past or upcoming chapters of the same book. Also it seemed very one-dimensional written, only in the view of the personal experience of the author. In the end I skipped whole pages - and that, with me being a very patient reader, is a bad sign...
