Review by Meggo
A perfectly serviceable Flashman book, full of innuendo, callous disregard for morality, and cringing cowardice - Flashman fans will enjoy it. But to be honest, I prefer the younger Flashy, rather than the 70-year old version - young legs can run faster and farther, after all.
Review by MrsPlum
Discovering Flashman has been my highlight for 2010. Fraser’s skills as a novelist and historian is such that he created a character who remains ultimately likeable, despite his treatment of women. There have been many such men in life – why not in art? This was my first foray into the world of Flashman and I can thoroughly recommend it as a starting point. Flashy is at his charming best with the ladies, and toadying best with his foes. His account of the Zulu attack on Rorkes Drift is spine chilling.
