“The Prisoner of Zenda” is a great and quick read for Oktoberfest.

“The Prisoner of Zenda” is a great and quick read for Oktoberfest.  I love this tale about mistaken identity, trading places, Germany in the Summer, travel and the great outdoors.  I also love Oktoberfest and the celebration of the harvest, feasting and great beverages.  I also love to read.  Having been to Germany and traveled there many summers, I can appreciate the great woods and forests, as I have hiked in the Black Forest and eaten wild raspberries there.  I have also visited many German castles.

The film version with Peter Sellers is also well done and captures the spirit of Ruritania and Anthony Hope, the author, would be proud!
