    Epub Victoria Hislop ☆ The Island PDF/EPUB ´ ☆ island book, The Island EpubThe story line of this book is pretty good but it is the most poorly written book I've read in awhile She explains things emotions plot lines to a level where she's beating you over the head with it and every sentence has about three adjectives too many You'll

    Epub Victoria Hislop ☆ The Island PDF/EPUB ´ ☆ island book, The Island EpubAs a novel The Island has come in for a fair amount of criticism that I for one strongly disagree with I loved it The author captured the warmth charm and passion of the Cretans and of the Island of Crete and poignantly described the heartbreaking situation of a time and place that still haunts to this dayYou simply must read this heartrending brilliantly descriptive and meticulously researched piece of work whether you are able to visit the island or not If you do read t

    Epub Victoria Hislop ☆ The Island PDF/EPUB ´ ☆ island book, The Island EpubI had great hopes that this would be a good bookBut life can be disappointing at times This was one of the worst written books I have read in a long time Chunks of unnecessarty exposition character motivations eplained to the nth degree dialogue avoided likewell like it was leprosyIf you like your characters spoon fed to you and every meaningful scene ducked I mean why didn't we get to see the last evening she and her husband had together? What exactly did they say? well this is the book for youThe thought that people believe this is good writing makes me shudder There was the same sort of hype about Captain Corelli but at least De Bernieres knows how to write

    Epub Victoria Hislop ☆ The Island PDF/EPUB ´ ☆ island book, The Island EpubThe background to this story is so well researched that you feel as if it is a truthful account of events surrounding the lives of those suffering from leprosy in Crete during the Second World War and their families and friends There is love and tragedy betrayal and loyalty deceit and courageThankfully both medicinal science and the attitude of society to serious illness have made massive advances since those daysOnce you have started reading this book you will become captivated and will have your nose in it at every opportunity until you reach the last page I would therefore advise you to put it at the top of you holiday reading list

    Epub Victoria Hislop ☆ The Island PDF/EPUB ´ ☆ island book, The Island EpubI have mixed feelings about this book The primary subject matter of the book was well researched and very interesting and original that of the fate of Leprosy sufferers in pre war and wartime Greece I found this aspect of the book very interesting the experimental treatments the descriptions of how they organised their lives on the island and set up a democracy the emotions surrounding being forcibly taken away from your f

    Epub Victoria Hislop ☆ The Island PDF/EPUB ´ ☆ island book, The Island EpubI have never written a review or reccomendation before i wont tell the story line because there are many revews here that have already done that not to mention the blurb Instead i will tell you why it s one of my all time favourites another being Birds Without Wings by Louis de Berniere why I recommend it to anyone who will listen even my husband who also loved it So anyone who might give it a miss thinking its a chick lit don't it does have romance but it's much

    Epub Victoria Hislop ☆ The Island PDF/EPUB ´ ☆ island book, The Island EpubThis book was awesome I read it on my honeymoon while I was laying on the beach and I couldn't put it down I read the whole thing in two days I would recommend this book to anyone interested in European history I learned a ton about leprosy and the stigma associated with the disease I think we all know a bit about leprosy but it was really enlightening about the overall topic especially since it is still an epidemic in many third world countries The female characters were also very interesting to me because they were particularly strong and complex This is a great book I enjoyed it completely

    Epub Victoria Hislop ☆ The Island PDF/EPUB ´ ☆ island book, The Island EpubI enjoyed this novel so much that halfway thru it I ordered Victoria Hislop's next book The writing style is fantastic The descriptions are elouent without being pompous or overdone The characters are like everyday people if a bit exagerated It starts with Alexis a young woman trying to get to the bottom of her mother's strange and mysterious past while vacationing in Crete I would like to note here that it is NOT like the Forgotten Garden for those of you that are not fond of time jumping After a brief Part One in which readers meet Alexis and her mother Sofia the entire novel until the very end is about Eleni Alexi

    Epub Victoria Hislop ☆ The Island PDF/EPUB ´ ☆ island book, The Island EpubA really enjoyable read albeit out of my usual genres That said being a real Hellenophile and having a number of Cretan friends I was always going to enjoy it I do not know the area described in the book at all well my friends live nearer Rethymno but I have flown in over Spinalonga many times and was aware of its history The story was woven well into the history of both Crete and the Isle of Spinalonga Would recommend to anyone with a love of Greece or Crete or just looking for a genuinely good story well told Καλά
