Publisher Description

The hugely successful romantic adventure story which continues to thrill a century after it was written. It has all the classic ingredients - a twisting plot of betrayal and deception, love interest, great swashbuckling action and a most beguiling villain in Rupert of Hentzau, who captured the publics imagination and had them begging the author for a sequel.

Rudolph Rassendyll visits Ruritania, with whose Royal Family he has a connection because of a scandalous sexual indiscretion in the past. When the heir apparent is kidnapped, Rudolph by virtue of his physical similarity to the new ruler, is plunged into a sequence of events in which he is crowned, then must rescue "The Prisoner of Zenda" in order to continue the royal line and pay court to the Princess Flavia - the latter task coming very easy to him as he falls deeply in love

A terrific, original tale much imitated by succeeding authors - but never bettered.

Great entertainment and part of literary history!

Great book! Great narrator!

Narrator Peter Joyce should get an award for this one. He’s droll and ironic and enthusiastic in turn. His women are believable. The book is a hoot. I did not want to stop listening ever. This is definitely a “walk around the block one more time” or “sit in the parting space listening” kind of story. It would;d make a great audiobook to share with someone on a long drive.
