It wasn’t what I thought it would be...

Although I enjoyed this novel, it was not what I expected or rather hoped it would be. The novel does continue with the adventures of Rudolf Rassendyll, but I had hoped it concentrated specifically with Rupert himself. I thought he somehow would have been an anti-hero, made to do good when he in-fact wanted to do evil. I thought that would have been an interesting take on the series, but alas that was not so. It was a let down in that capacity, but I enjoyed the novel nonetheless. It is worth reading if you have read the first novel, “The Prisoner of Zenda.”
