The Island


I started reading it, although I don't usually read this kind of books. To my surprise, I couldn't put it down! I finished it in a day! I got so absorbed, nothing else mattered! I just wanted to know what came next!

The story of a family, the story of an island. The story of a disease.

A wonderful story. Lively descriptions, great research. A fantastic job by Victoria Hislop. This is her first book, by the way.
PS. Reading this book, made me think. There are so many people suffering out there. Leprosy is a very serious disease, which CAN be fought, though. We can do something to help.

I did not know that Lepra still exists as a disease! I ahve been to spinaloga many years ago... It was nothing there, I saw graves and some bones in them and I am surprised to hear that at that island there was life...I thought those people were just left there to die...
