    1. I chose this because I don't know much about Hungarian history and wanted to learn more. This book was a good teacher. Written over a hundred years ago, this has long been a classic in Hungary. It tells of the 1552 Siege of Eger Fortress, the gateway to Upper Hungary, against the Turks through the story of Gergely [Gregory, in English] Bornemissza. He is the hero and in charge of cannons and explosives at Eger Fortress. The story takes us through his childhood, marriage with his childhood sweeth [...]

    2. This book is the English translation of a volume originally written in Hungarian and titled Egri Csillagok, i.e. "Stars of Eger."Historical fiction works best when the event it's built around requires no fictitious embellishment to fascinate the reader. Eclipse of the Crescent Moon takes place during the 1552 siege of Eger. During this siege, 2,000 Hungarians held off at least 40,000 Turkish invaders for over one month. The Turks retreated despite having had superior armaments as well as a massi [...]

    3. Perskaičiau šią knygą dar būdama paauglė. Ir iki šiol prisimenu ypatingą jos paliktą įspūdį. Mane įtraukė istorija, kurioje pasakojami jauno vengrų berniuko patirti, kitaip nepavadinsi, nuotykiai ir jo gyvenimo istorija, per paauglystę, jaunystę. Taip pat pasakojami jo aplinkoje ir jam artimiems žmonėms vykstantys įvykiai. Įpinama ir meilės istorija, kurioje buvo ir meilės scena, kuri man turbūt pati gražiausia iš skaitytų. Ir kartu su visu tuo pasakojama Vengrijos ist [...]

    4. This, along with The Hobbit, was one of the most formative books of my childhood. I think I must have read it 5-6 times between the ages of 13 and 17. There were parts in this story that echoed strongly with me and my identity even though I'm not Hungarian, not Turkish, not genetically tied to any of teh Balkan nations (that I know of).And I'm not a boy.

    5. I am an Hungarian girl (though living in the Netherlands), and so my mother encouraged me to read some hungarian literature. Eclipse of the Crescent Moon was a very good book, i finished it in a matter of days. It's a shame this book is not internationally famous, because i strongly recommend it to everyone! seriously, read this book, you'll love it!

    6. This book was recommended by my son Erik who was living in Eger, Hungary - the city where this takes place. It tells the tale of the siege of Eger by the Turks in 1552. The early part of the book gives the background to these events. It reads as a great adventure story, though a bit slow in the middle. I learned a lot of Hungarian history and geography. It was even more interesting to be interrupted in my reading to focus on reading current newspaper accounts of the migrant crisis in Europe as i [...]

    7. This is a very engaging and enjoyable book, and I can quite see how it has captured the affection of so many Hungarians. Having visited Hungary twice, I like and admire the people, and I also think they were treated very unfairly by the Treaty of Trianon in 1920. The Siege of Eger is rightly held up as a model of bravery and pluck and, like all Anglo Saxons, of course my historical sympathies are more with the Hungarians rather than the Turks. Much of the novel is splendidly atmospheric. And yet [...]

    8. Once upon a time, I met a girl that was to become my partner in life and in parenthood. She's Hungarian and was brought up in a city called Eger.Now you can imagine why I read this book. I visited the Eger fortress way before finishing this book, which is kind of a shame as she recommended me to read it before visiting it so I could picture everything better and the meaning of it all. It was pretty cool though.The book itself is a bit strange, maybe because my expectations of it were "Ok, this b [...]

    9. This was recommended to me while touring the castle at Eger, in Hungary. It is a fictionalized history of the 1552 attempt by the invading Turks to capture this fortress and the town it protected. The heroism of the defenders of Eger is legendary in Hungary, as about 2,000 of them held out agains a seige by a superior Turkish Army of over 20,000 for 39 days, at the end of which the Turks withdrew, their only defeat in their decades-long invasion of Hungary in that century.The writing is not the [...]

    10. I really enjoyed reading this classic Hungarian historical fiction of the 1552 siege of Eger Castle, Hungary. My grandson is currently living in Eger in his LDS missionary service and I wanted to learn more of the heritage of the Hungarian people. The main characters of the book are well developed following them from childhood to the Turkish assault. I appreciate knowing a bit of Hungarian history in this way. Amazingly resourceful warriors dedicated to the survival of Hungary. I thought of news [...]

    11. Just finished this, and oh, the feelings. I'm not a big flag waver, but this story makes me proud to be half Hungarian. I want to be as brave as the defenders of the fortress of Eger, vastly outnumbered but dauntless (!), standing up against the enemy who comes to kill, steal, and destroy, namely, the Turkish army. I want to be as calm and unswerving as their commander István Dobó, as resourceful as our hero Gergely. Come to think of it, their spirit reminds me a lot of Leon Uris's Exodus. Als [...]

    12. A MEK-ről töltöttem le a könyvet egy egri családi hétvége alkalmából. Gyerekkoromban persze olvastam, de az nem tegnap volt. Érdeklődéssel olvastam újra. Gárdonyi fantasztikusan ír, nem vét hibát, a csata leírása közben (utolsó könyv) meg kábé mosdóba sem bírtam imenni, annyira izgalmas volt.Sajnálom, hogy a hatodikos lányomnak ez kötelező olvasmány, mert nem neki való. Nekem való. Ma, meg mondjuk úgy tíz évvel ezelőtt.

    13. Since my girlfriend is from Hungary I was bound to read this book, a gift from her father. I'm not that keen on epic narrative, war stories don't usually appeal me and I'm not usually teased by nationalist chants, I have to admit that I enjoyed almost every single chapter of this novel. It contains all you can expect from a good adventure novel. In fact, it remind me of Dumas several times.

    14. Een, minstens ten dele (meer in het bijzonder wat betreft het eerste Turkse beleg van de Hongaarse burcht Eger), op ware feiten gebaseerde roman. Geschreven in niet politiek correcte tijden over een tijd waarin op zijn minst sommige mensen (onder andere István Dobó, toenmalig bevelhebber van de burcht) nog wisten hoe ze moesten omgaan met invasies van tienduizenden mensen. Is/was verplicht leesvoer voor Hongaarse scholieren en de geschiedenis is - terecht - ook nog steeds een bron van trots vo [...]

    15. Általános iskolai kötelező olvasmányként került a kezembe, de határozottan állítom így, felnőtt fejjel, hogy egy kisgyereknek nagyon fárasztó olvasmány. Az eleje a könyvnek jobb: változatosabb, színesebb, érdekesebb; a második fele, a csata, egyáltalán nem kötött le kisgyerekként és szerintem általában nem érdekel ez egy ikszedikes kisgyereket (nem emlékszem, hanyadik osztályban kötelező).Nem tartom a könyvet Gárdonyi legjobb könyvének.

    16. This children’s classic takes place in Hungary, in the 16th century, during the 150-year Ottoman occupation. Besides the tales of several battles, the novel tells the story of the 1552 Siege of Eger, during which Captain István Dobó's 2,000 Hungarian men, women, and children inside the county's castle, defeated a Turkish force of 80,000 men. The point of view is from Gergely Bornemissza, a Hungarian soldier and national hero. You travel with him on his journey from childhood to adulthood, wa [...]

    17. Geza Gardonyi's historical novel "Eclipse of the Crescent Moon" is thoroughly entertaining. It's action packed and sprinkled with a bit of romance, intrigue, and plenty of fighting between Hungarians and Turks.Gardonyi takes the real-life seige of Eger Castle and romanticizes the life of one of the Hungarian leaders who defended the fort -- Gergeley Bornemizzsa, a Hungarian who made grenades that were partly responsible for driving the Turks away from the fort after a month-long seige. Gardonyi' [...]

    18. Incredible graphic detail of the 1552 seige of Eger. After having visited Eger on several occasions and toured the castle remains, this novel gave me a great appreciation for the brave Hungarians who have defended the city.Geza Gardonyi tells a good story leading up to the battle - he follows the plight of one soldier from his youth while inter-weaving several other characters. A childhood sweetheart, gypsy, adopted father, army commander, and enemy Turk all repeatedly cross paths. At first thin [...]

    19. A Hungarian friend from Eger pointed me to this story, partly set in her hometown. This is a young-adult historical novel recounting Hungary's siege of Eger -- essentially, Hungary's Alamo (or perhaps more like the Siege of Rohan in the Lord of the Rings - The Two Towers). This book was published in 1899 and covers events around 1550, when the Turks have occupied most of Hungary and are advancing on the old fortress in Eger, outnumbering the defenders 50 to one. It's quite a page turner with a l [...]

    20. This novel is considered a classic of nineteenth-century Hungarian literature. It is a work of historical fiction which is required reading for schoolchildren and students, by the title -- literally translated -- "The Stars of Eger." Gerdonyi's protagonist is a young boy who is adopted by the nobleman, Balint Torok, a mid-sixteenth century leader of the Christian Hungarian forces as they battle Muslim Turks. This narrative, exquisitely written, follows the child in a chronicle of the Ottoman war [...]

    21. Huvitav sissevaade Ungari võitlusesse vabaduse eest, sellesse kuidas käputäis vapraid mehi suudavad panna vastu tervele armeele. Muidugi oli väga meeldiv ka ülesehitus, mis jälgis peategelase elu alates tema poisikesepõlvest. Üldiselt oli terve lugu huvitav, kuigi vahepeal oli keeruline nimede tõttu lugu järgida, aga kui need keerulised nimed viimaks meelde jäi, sai keskenduda puhtalt lugemisenaudingule. Ma hoidsin ennast ka selle eest, et lahingu saatus enne raamatuga lõpule jõudmi [...]

    22. Őszinte leszek. Nem olvastam el. Mindig csak az első 20-30 oldalig jutottam. Miközben körülöttem mindenki imádta, én viszolyogtam tőle. Egyszerűen nekem túl történelmis volt. :D Nem kötött le. Habár a film nagyon is cselekményes ebből adódóan a könyv is biztos az, de én képtelen voltam elolvasni. Sort kéne azért egyszer kerítenem rá, hisz a film nagyon tetszik, de nem tudom mikor fogom megejteni ezt a találkozást. Sajnálom, tényleg, mert biztosan jó könyv. Csak a [...]

    23. I think the book is great but I miss the Hungarian title's meaning on the english cover. I like "Egri Csillagok" much more than "Eclipse of the Crescent Moon" as the battle is more about the "Stars of Eger" - which the Hungarian title means. ;-)I think the choice of the english name can hurt some people which is sad too. Other than these I enjoyed the book a lot and of course read it in Hungarian ;-)

    24. While virtually unknown abroad, this is a very popular book in Hungarian literature. A work of historical fiction presenting the Hungarians' resistance against Ottoman occupation in the 16th century. Told through the eyes of Gergely who is a young boy at the beginning of the book, an adventurer later, and a valiant soldier towards the end. A really fantastic book, full of action, heroic adventures, and even a thread of romance.

    25. My parents served their mission in Hungary and half of it was spent in Eger. This book is about the Eger fortress defending against the Turks to hold off the Turkish invasion. I thought it was really interestingobably because I've been there. I wish I would have read this before I went. The last half of the book is mostly battle, but the heroes win.

    26. Great book if you can get it. It's really written for adolescent boys, but the siege of Eger is an actual historical event (I visited the castle in the 90's) and the re-telling here is plausible. A small group of Hungarian soldiers and women hold off the onslaught of far more numerous warriors of Turks. The creativity shown by their leader, Istvan Dobo, is inspiring. Nice adventure tale.

    27. This book is an original hungarian story about love, war, suffering, misguise and so on. You can find everything that you like in history, the romance, the adventure. The story is about the castle and the battle of Eger in the middle ages and two young Gergely and Eva. It is true that the first 100 pages is not so exciting but after you can't take it down.

    28. Een spannende historische roman met veel humor geschreven. Het boek gaat over de Turkse bezetting van Hongarije. Ongeveer de helft van dit boek beslaat de belegering van Eger door de Turken en de verdediging van de burcht in Eger door de Hongaren in 1552. Dat ging gepaard met veel bloederig strijdgewoel.
