    " Truely a magnificent piece of work! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 1/30/2014

    " Not as good as Prisoner of Zenda--but sequels often are not as good as their predecessors. The ending was unsatisfying, but Hope had boxed himself into a corner, so I'm not surprised he took this way out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Larry Piper | 1/28/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book's predecessor, The Prisoner of Zenda, and this book was almost as good. It kept my interest to the end. Lots of plot twists, swash buckling, etc. I could do without some of the cloying melodrama, but a bit of that is pretty much an inevitable feature of books written around the turn of the 20th century. "

    " This book is the sequel to The Prisoner of Zenda. It was great! I just loved all the characters. The ending was a bit unexpected but was in keeping with Rudolph's character. "

    " There's a public domain audiobook version available here from LibriVox. It's read by Andy Minter, one of Librivox's best! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Jacobs | 1/7/2014

    " Could have been written for the screen. A perfect sequel to Prisoner of Zenda. Melodramatic as only a novel of this era could be. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christy | 12/25/2013

    " Written well in the same fashion as the first book. I did not care for how the entire plot evolved around writing a letter to someone she should not have as she was a married women. Then from this all the characters spent their time trying to protect her honor in the English type of way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eugenides | 12/23/2013

    " Every bit as good as the first one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stuart Smith | 12/18/2013

    " Sadly nowhere near as good as the The Prisoner. Hope talks into a highly sycophantic style of writing, which granted the original novel leans towards but this sequel takes to far. Addition to this a significantly weaker plot & too many shortcuts. That said there are still some fun moments. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimbolimbo | 12/9/2013

    " Was a fun read. Full of intrigue. In the end you wonder who is right and who is wrong and why. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rashid | 10/24/2013

    " A so so sequel.. the character is simply too much of a superman in this novel.. thats why I did not like it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eileen | 5/26/2013

    " Sequel to The Prisoner of Zenda, although not quite as good. But great fun & with a surprising ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clare Cannon | 4/25/2013

    " A brilliant sequel, perfectly consistent with the first book. Once again the last paragraphs are beautiful. A stirring, noble story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tocotin | 9/12/2012

    " Well, Rupert is a cool villain, fun to read about. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alexander | 8/22/2012

    " It would have been better if it had been half as long. But it was still fun, and Boris the hound played a fine role. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judith Irvine | 3/21/2012

    " Very exciting. I listened to the unabridged audiobook read by Rufus Wright who was very good. I couldn't stop listening! It is the sequel to the Prisoner Of Zenda so make sure you read that first. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher Walker | 3/8/2012

    " A rip roaring tale of derring do. I enjoyed this more than it's predecessor The Prisoner of Zenda. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tasha | 2/24/2012

    " Not as good as The Prisoner of Zenda. Also, I find the ending extremely frustrating. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn | 8/30/2011

    " This was the first book that I have ever read where I caved and read the ending halfway through the book. The foreshadowing finally did me in. It was a good sequel and ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane | 8/10/2011

    " The sad sequel to The Prisoner of Zenda: the two should definitely be read together. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Celia | 4/22/2011

    " Having already read The Prisoner of Zenda, I knew what I was letting myself in for, but this novel is even more over-the-top than the first one. All I can say is, evil is defeated in the end, and everyone else is so noble and self-sacrificing that it makes me want to gag. "
