5.0 out of 5 stars Stirring stuff, 23 Mar 2009
This review is from: The Prisoner of Zenda (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
Some books are brilliant through the sheer beauty of the writing, others through the characterisation or the quality of thought on the subject matter. But there are some books that, quite simply, capture your imagination and hold it prisoner in another world.

"The Prisoner of Zenda" does just that. In 200 pages, one is transported with the hero into a world of adventure, intrigue and romance, amongst deep forests, in dark dungeons and splendid palaces. This world is peopled with brave heroes, dastardly villains and noble ladies. And who cares that some of the turns of the plot may seem far-fetched? This is pure escapism at its best.
