    1 thought on “The Eagle of Spinalonga: Some People Were Born to Soar, No Matter What.”

    1. Four years ago there was a really interesting Greek TV series about Spinalonga which I liked very much and when I saw the eagle of Spinalonga I had to see what this book was all about. Especially when the Author is Greek Australian like I am. I must say I was completely blown away and moved by this book! It is truly an epic, saga-like story that I could easily see being made into a feature full-length film. This story is really that good. The author has brilliantly created the settings throughou [...]

    2. A wonderfully inspiring story! I have been obsessed with Spinalonga since reading Victoria Hislop's 'The Island', and although Nike's book deals with the same terrible period of life in Crete, her story has a completely different angle to Hislop's. Well written, engaging and highly emotive, this is a great read.

    3. One in a lifetimeA really beautiful story, unique and believable. Definitely one I will treasure in my library, and read again. Thank you NIke.

    4. Interesting novel with lots of historical detail. Much much better than Victoria Hislop's novel The Island

    5. A very engaging, heart touching ensemble of tales woven around the central character, Nikos. A young Greek man who has become afflicted with leprosy. Its in the early 1900s, and lepers were exiled to an island much like the Hawaiian lepers to Moloka'i and elsewhere in the world. My interest was caught by this free kindle offering because one of my favorite books is about the Hawaiian leper colony by Alan Brennert, titled after the island. This book is written very well and I was thoroughly entra [...]

    6. The last years of Spinalonga as a leper colony.Judging by other reviewer's ratings, this is a popular book, however, I did not feel it earned more than three stars. Firstly it needed a fair amount of editing to correct typos and give it more of a narrative feel, rather than 'this happened and then this happened' Secondly, it contained continuity errors: a) the residents on the island were starving, yet there was a fat prostitute, b) Nikos manages to stay hidden on a small island with a huge eagl [...]

    7. A sad but triumphant and inspiring story of what one man can do to help others overcome adversity. An inspiring story about an exceptional man, Nikos, who helped bring about much needed changes in the lives of the lepers on the island of Spinalonga. This story was touching and tragic and emotional as the author weaves a fascinating story about the inhabitants of this colony of lepers. Some of the story is based on facts about the war when Germany tried to invade the island and use it for a base [...]

    8. “The Eagle of Spinalonga” Is one of the newest e-books that represent real life events from the history. This Greek-based story will surely overcome your expectations of a solid and exciting book.It all starts with the profile of Nikos Lambrakis who was given a funeral while still alive. From that point, the story envelops and keeps your focus straight at it. Combined with real life history events such as places, this e-book takes in amount many things from the history which is surely why it [...]

    9. A story of triumph over adversity. Easy prose and written in a straight forward manner that enables one to read quickly. There are no plots to speak of, just one mans determination to get some sort of life for himself and others in the same predicament of having leprosy. Isolation fromthe rest of society and the collapse of his aspirations does not deter him as he manages to gel the fragmented inhabitants of Spinalonga into a small, self sufficient and happy democracy.

    10. Read this whilst on holiday in Crete.I mostly enjoyed reading this book particularly as I was on holiday in Crete and did actually visit Spinalonga. I would recommend a visit to the island for everyone who visits Crete.There were a few parts that I thought were rather gratuitous and unnecessary but they did not mar the story in its entirety.

    11. I enjoyed the book so gave it 4 stars, but I found the plot, at times, little contrived. Everything seemed to fit together too neatly, which I felt detracted from the reality of the lepers situation.

    12. An interesting and emotional story about the leprosy island, a good read showcasing some Greek history.

    13. Think this was a bit slow at the start & I wasn't sure about it but it got much better as I went along and I became more interested in the characters & wanted to know what would happen to them.

    14. Loved itFantastic story. Could not put it down but now I'm sad it's finished. Cannot recommend in highly enough. A definite MUST READ

    15. If you visited the Spinalonga Island do not hesitate to read this book. Or if you didn't visited yet you can imagine a part of the history of the famous Leper Island.
