One of the most compelling bestselling novels of all times. Irving Wallace, who spent fifteen years and made two visits to Stockholm preparing THE PRIZE, probes the lives of six fictional men and women who confront personal crises of scandal, tragedy, fame...when the world accords them its greatest honor - THE NOBEL PRIZE.
"Lost in all the commotion around Sin with a capital S, Swedish girls and their morals, a little frigidity and alcoholism and extramarital relations, is the serious study of how the Nobel Prize winners are chosen...Irving Wallace is one of the most successful authors of our time."
Dr. Anders Osterling, Head of the Nobel Award Committee in Literature
I liked the premise of the story, but it dragged on and on. I had to put it down after 120 pages. I couldn't see torturing myself fot the rest of the other 480 pages. Maybe if I found an abriged version I would enjoy it better.
