" LOVED this book! Despite not really appreciating old english, I zipped through this one because of the riveting, action packed story and Anthony Hope's adequately-descriptive-yet-not-tiresome narrative style. The story is simple and predictable but for once, I didn't see this as a shortcoming in a book. It actually added to the charm, replete with themes of royalty, intrigue in the king's court, deception, honour, forbidden love, look-alikes and valour. Think I will now watch the movie... it has got to be a masala pot boiler! :) "
