Read full description of the books:
"Working within the picaresque fiction tradition -- representing, perhaps, the best form for the so-called socially conscious fiction -- Pen has written a novel which is most effective when it dramatizes the routine events of the peasant life in the country villages or the hounded existence of the Budapest workers." - Frederick Brantley, The New York Times Book Review
"Temptation is a mix of Charles Dickens and Vicki Baum, and it is, in many parts overheated. Six hundred pages of hardship ! But there's enough humour (and Béla's almost constant good cheer or at least optimism), as well as enough of the other side of life (in the hotel)) to make for a fairly consistently gripping and entertaining read. And the local squalour-colour -- both in the village and in Budapest -- is impressive too.
Not great literature, but a solid, entertaing read with quite a bit to it."
