4172 Two Prisoners, by Lajos Zilahy (read 8 June 2006) This book by a famed (in Hungary) Hungarian novelist was published in English translation first in 1931. It begins in Budapest in 1913, where Miette and Peter meet, fall in love, marry, and World War I breaks out. Peter goes to war, is captured and sent to Siberia. Miette despite her guilty conscience falls in love with another man. The chapters alternate between Miette in Hungary and Peter in Siberia. There is a startling ending. I found the book heavily 'European' reminding me of say, Tolstoy, and conclude it is a vivid and powerful book. ( )
