The Eagle of Spinalonga - Nike Azoros

Nikos has just qualified as a lawyer and is eager to get on with his life when he discovers that he has leprosy which means he will have to leave his mother and his profession to join his sister, Maria, who is already on the island of Spinalonga. The priest who performs his funeral feels such guilt that the people living on this desolate location have to go through this funeral service while still alive and decides even though he is healthy, to give up his parish and join the lepers.

Nikos and Father Manoussos find the living conditions on the island shocking and set about changing the dire living conditions, meagre food, hygiene and total lack of medical care into a place where people can live with dignity. Nikos goes one step further than just writing letters and organising the refurbishment of the hovels; he captures an eagle and thanks to her efforts, the islanders enjoy fish, rabbit and on the rare occasion, lamb.

The story covers living on the island from before the Second World War to the 1960's when the remaining inhabitants are allowed to leave this place of incarceration, having been cured of leprosy.

I enjoyed this book, but it didn't flow with the same easy grace that Victoria Hislop's book, The Island did. Maybe if I'd read this book before The Island it would have had more impact.

Really enjoyed this book and can recommend it. Hope others enjoy it too. Seemed too good to be true but still a good story.

Interesting but some not quite believable. ..I can't imagine it being true although some parts are feasible.

Took this book on holiday to Crete and was lucky enough to visit Spinalonga. Really enjoyed the book and it helped to link and bring to life what I had seen. A book that will make you cry at points but definitely recommended.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It has everything to keep the reader enthralled. Empathy for the condition and joy at the characters triumphs in in adversity. Overall a really great read.
