    1. 2.5 – 3 starsRupert of Hentzau is an enjoyable swashbuckler, though I remember The Prisoner of Zenda being better. We rejoin the major players remaining from the first novel three years later when a new crisis threatens the queen’s honour (she’s not very bright, alas) and the dastardly rogue Rupert of Hentzau gets his hands on a letter written by her majesty to her former lover Rudolph Rassendyll. Of course Rudolph must speed to her rescue and once again take up his imposture of the King o [...]


    2. I bought this book in Pembroke. This detail is almost irrelevant, except that Pembroke is one of my favourite towns in West Wales and has an extremely impressive castle. But it's not really like the castles of Ruritania, which are probably more Germanic looking.I finished re-reading The Prisoner of Zenda almost a year ago to the day, and I adored it. I thought it was a tremendous swashbuckling adventure novel. It had great momentum and was a real page-turner for me. I have now finished re-readin [...]


    3. بدأت بتوقعات كبيرة و لكن مع مرور الصفحات بدات أشعر بخيبة أمل قوية عندما تجد رواية تحمل اسم احد الشخصيات فلابد أن تتوقع أن تكون تلك الشخصية متواجدة في نصف الرواية على الأقل لكن للغرابة لا نجد روبرت يظهر سوى في اربع مشاهد طوال احداث الرواية تقريبا هو ببساطة الغائب الحاضر غائب ج [...]


    4. A major theme that runs through much of great literature is the conflict betweeen Duty and Love. In "The Aeneid", Virgil has Aeneas choose duty over love. This conclusion was the majority opinion throughout Western history up until the time of the Romantics, who elevated Love above Duty. In a particularly Christian twist on the question ", Dante’ “Divine Comedy shows that Duty and Love can both be honored and fulfilled.In the "Prisoner of Zenda", Anthony Hope danced a bit around this questio [...]


    5. 4 Extra Debut. Queen Flavia writes a fateful letter to her true love Rudolf Rassendyll. Sequel to The Prisoner of Zenda. Stars Julian Glover.Ruritanian Romance.This would make no sense at all if you haven't got The Prisoner of Zenda under your belt. bbc/programmes/b01qqsw3


    6. I did enjoy certain aspect of this sequal to "Prisoner of Zenda", the plots, the overall story-telling. I think part of the story was told better than the first book. However, I am not certain why the author chose the voice of Fritz as the narrator of the story. Fritz was not present in many of the key scenes which make the narration awkward. And above all, I was disappointed at the ending. Ahh well. I still like Anthony Hope very much.


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



    8. When I started reading this sequel to The Prisoner of Zenda, I was not entirely sure I was going to enjoy it. However, as I progressed with it, I found myself caught up in the web and was spellbound as the tale unfolded. A swashbuckling story of high treason, intrigue, love and above all honour.


    9. ***Spoilers***The Prisoner of Zenda was one of my favorite novels in high school--really a novel that I obsessed over and read multiple times. After reading The Prisoner of Zenda, I immediately bought Rupert of Hentzau to revisit that fantastic world. However, when I reached college, I was advised by a trusted college friend, who had similarly loved The Prisoner of Zenda, that I should just leave Ruritania where it had been left at the end of that great novel. So, wary, I left Rupert on the shel [...]


    10. A sequel that is not as good as the original: the plot is weaker and requires a lot of behind-the-scenes explanations and jumping around the timetable to keep the subplots together. The change in narrator also doesn't help, as Fritz is not present for a good part of the events in the book and it's not as interesting to read a second hand account of events compared to the 'memoirs' feeling of the first Zenda. This change in narrator is also a very bad foreshadowing of the disappointing finale in [...]


    11. The tone shifts from The Prisoner of Zenda: gone is the optimistic energy and spirit of adventure, thanks to the lackluster narration of Fritz and to the story revolving around a defensive action on the part of the protagonists. Unlike its predecessor, this is not so much about _doing_ something (madcap plan to impersonate and rescue the king) as about _preventing_ something (madcap non-plan to prevent a compromising letter from arriving). And all of it not to avert war or save a life, but to pr [...]


    12. This is the sequel to "The Prisoner of Zenda." It had the same excellent, witty, quick-paced style I loved from the first. I really loved the narrator from the first one better, the second is a little drier--but it was part of the story and it was great. Followed the first with the themes of loyalty, duty and honor. Rudolf has a really hard choice to make in this one, and although he doesn't actually get to "make" it, you know by the description of his demeanor at the end that he'd made the righ [...]


    13. This is the sequel to the best book ever, also by Anthony Hope, "The Prisoner of Zenda".I was able to find copies of both at an antique bookstore in London as they are out of print. But it was worth the search.This one continues the story of Princess Flavia and her beloved Rudolf Rassendyll in the fictional European country of Ruritania. There are moments of comic genius, swashbuckling heroism and of course, romance.The stories may be old, but the are freshly exciting each time I read them. High [...]


    14. A continuation of story and theme from the adventure/romance novel The Prisoner of Zenda. I am desperate for a film that takes these two stories as a springboard for a stirring adventure exploring the ideas of honor, gentlemanliness, and duty in the face of temptation. There are some great characters here, and though there are countless homages to this story in others, an adaptation of the the story itself hasn't been done in a long while.


    15. الثنائية ملحمية :) حتى الآن أجد أن أي تعليق عليها سيكون سخيفاَ رودولف راسندل كولونيل سابت فريتس تارلينهم فلافياارتبطت بالشخصيات بشدة منذ درست رواية سجين زندا لهذا لم تختلف العودة في الرواية الثانية كثيراَ عن العودة إلى الديار حيث من تحب :) ولهذا لا أجد تعليقا على النهاية لك [...]



    16. صدمة النهاية قد تلجم لسانك و تجعلك في وضع لا تسطيع أن تتكلم فيه لكن هي نهاية صعبة لكن مقبولة و أحداث هذا الجزء أكثر سرعة و إيقاعها أشد و أكثر ترابطا من الجزء الأول



    17. 3 1/2 stars. This sequel to "The Prisoner of Zenda" had nice writing, and I enjoy the style. I liked most of the book, but felt disappointed by the way it ended.


    18. I really enjoyed the much darker story than in book one (seriously so much darker) that still kept the overall tone. But I am also irrationally angry at the decision to have the first person POV of a person who wasn't there for half the events of the book. (He always goes 'and later X told me about these following events' which isdumb). Also, the women are all so useless in the book*sighs*(I still wish we had gotten that sequel movie with Douglas Fairbanks Jr. as Rupert. It would have been glori [...]


    19. Not as much fun as The Prisoner of Zenda. The Queen is just tiresome and Rudolf spends all his time being noble and refusing to make a decision. Sapt, Rupert, and even James, save this story making this still an entertaining tale.


    20. Unapologetically old-fashioned, clearly dated, yet Hope's nobility of sentiment still makes me tear up, every time.




    21. Plot dragged on a little too much. Ending was good, but too easy to guess due to the dream. Just reading Prisoner as a stand-alone would be best.


    22. i think this might well have been even better than The Prisoner of Zenda. bar the odd moment of silliness or excessive rumination, it kept a good pace throughout, and managed to be exciting, poignant and funny.[ETA: any book where the characters decide to solve their big problem with "burn fucking everything down" can only be good.]


    23. Me ha gustado más la primera entrega, El prisionero de Zenda. Creo que complementa y desenlaza gratamente la historia de Rudolph Rassendyll; Hope salva a su personaje de compleja decisión con un recurso que deja bien parada a su característica más notable: el honor.


    24. Three years after the events of The Prisoner of Zenda, the Englishman Rudolf Rassendyll is drawn back into the affairs of the state of Ruritania. His beloved Flavia, who sacrificed her personal happiness in order to marry the king, is unable to bear Rassendyll's absence any longer and pours out her heart in a deeply compromising letter. Unfortunately this same letter falls into the hands of the charming but thoroughly dastardly Rupert of Hentzau, who sees it as his opportunity to discredit the q [...]


    25. Originally published on my blog here in May 2000.The sequel to The Prisoner of Zenda usually seems to be printed along with it; there are many novels longer than these two put together. Some years elapse between the two, which Rudolf Rassendyll spends in England while Flavia, now married to the King of Ruritania whose place Rudolf had taken, continues to love him from a distance. Each year she sends a single red rose to him, as a token of her continued love. Eventually, as her husband becomes mo [...]
