I read this book on holiday, it was fantastic. It made me laugh and cry all at the same time. Louis De Bernieres describes everything in detail making you feel like you are actually there and that the characters are your friends. The only thing that possibly was lacking was the story of Ibrahim, you don't really get to know him as well as you could have done. If you've read Captain Correlli's Mandolin and enjoyed it, then read this 'cos it's better!
