    The ultimate 'Anti-Hero'

    If you thought you could never love a lecher, a liar, a cheat, a thief, a bully, a coward and an all around scoundrel rolled into one, think again. Sir Harry Flashman does it all in true Victorian swashbuckling style. The way Mr. Frasier combines some of the more well known events and people from the history books with one of the most unforgettable characters you¿ll ever hate to love (or love to hate, depending) is pure genius, not to mention laugh out loud funny. The best series I¿ve ever read.

    Historically Funny

    The Flashman chronicles combine a superb understanding of Victorian History with a great sense of humor. This book, the first in the series, is a great start to all of them. The author does a great job in reliving true life events through the eyes of fictional character, not an easy task. I think the not-so-average mindset and character of Flashman adds to the fun.

    So real you want to meet him!

    Well written history with an added hero the likes of which are rarely seen in literature today! I have read them all and they are my favorite series of books! I only hope Mr. Fraser has a few unedited packets of Flashy's Memoirs to give us yet. Worth the time, and for the students of history, educational! Good job, Mr. Fraser!

    Highly Recommended

    If you like history or just a great story,this is a book you ought to take a look at.I am an avid fan of the Richard Sharpe series and this book is right up there with those.The story and the writing is just fantastic.

    I Also Recommend:

    One of my favorites -- a swashbuckler of the first water, subtly

    One of my favorites -- a swashbuckler of the first water, subtly and not-so-subtly spiced with historical detail, political commentary and acerbic wit. I can't imagine not wanting to read all the rest of the series, after you've read this one. It's not even the best of them!
