    " Good read, one could read it in a few hours. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Renée | 4/13/2011

    " Wonderful story, although it is somewhat simple. The only problem I encountered while reading this, was the original language (German), which is not one I am particulary good at. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 3/25/2011

    " A swift, haunting, beautiful tale. I hope Zweig's reappearance thanks to NYRB is noted. (Beware of Pity was quite good, too, though a much larger time commitment.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 3/20/2011

    " Really interesting story. The fact that it was the writer's last work before committing suicide makes a lot of sense. Reminds me of Black Swan, but for chess players...a warning that excellence often requires obsession, and always comes at a price. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Martinxo | 3/5/2011

    " Enjoyable, short and well written book about...a chess match! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brittany | 2/22/2011

    " Really well done, and easy to knock off in an hour on a Sunday. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Justin | 2/1/2011

    " could have been longer. very well written, though the middle dragged. dragging was not for the sake of writing, but rather that the subject was individual for too long. look forward to reading more zweig in the future. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 1/11/2011

    " The Royal Game = 5 stars
    Amok = 4 stars
    The Burning Secret = 4 stars
    Fear = 5 stars
    Letter from an Unknown Woman = 4.5 stars ;) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 1/11/2011

    " My first book by Stefan Zweig, a novella. Nice wrting style and a good short story, especially if you ever played chess. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthias | 11/29/2010

    " Ein Klassiker. Schön erzählte Geschichte über verschiedene Menschen, die jeweils ihren eigenen, besonderen Zugang zum Schach haben. "
