Format: Paperback
Two prisoners is the story of a newly wed couple in Budapest whose lives are shattered by WWI.
Peter's constant struggle to remain true to Miette and his failure, always being sent further and further away from her, reminded me of my own situation at that time. This made reading the book slightly unpleasant, but it is nevertheless a great story.

Well worth the read. Dec 27 2011
By Umberto Eco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was not an easy novel to find. It was recalled by my 90 year old mother, because she had read it in her youth in an Italian translation and wished to read it again. I found it in both English and Italian and bought both. After having read it I found it a bit florid and victorian in it's style, but it is a novel that will transport you to the world of Hungary and Russia during World War Two as well as the years preceding it and it's aftermath. I highly recommend it.

two prisoners March 28 2012
By El Lector - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I remember reading this book when I was a teenager back in Colombia. (I read it in Spanish)Perhaps because I was just an impressionable adolescent but I felt in love with the two characters. I read it three times! Later on in life, after I got married, I recommended to my wife, back in 1991 before the Internet. We had a hard time finding a copy, finally we found one at Strands behind some old staffed boxes and we paid $4! I re-read in English this time, but the impact was the same! I just absolutely love this book!
