Atmospheric, Spiritual, Tragic and Funny. Superb!

It would be a mistake to remember de Bernieres solely in terms of 'Captain Corelli', although that is undoubtedly a great book. For me, the trilogy of which 'Senor Vivo' is the central part is even better. Admittedly, it needs some concentration to remember all of the names of people and places, but it's really worth the effort in this case. It helps a little to read them in order, but I didn't, and still survived. A truly magnificent book!
