What did you love best about Flashman and the Dragon?
The humor, adventure and risqué digressions.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
And how. Flashy's perils are never ordinary. In 1840 China, he has much to fear at every turn, but naturally, his wits and good fortune (especially based on his allure for ladies of every stamp) see him through.
Which scene was your favorite?
The Summer Palace interludes.
Any additional comments?
The thing about Flashman is that he's a rogue, a coward and a knave. But he spins a terrific yarn and the history behind all of his stories is sound. If you're sensitive or easily offended, don't even think about reading GMF. All the Flashman books are ridden with racism, sexism and imperialist superiority. Read these for the history and the fun, but know that they are the most politically incorrect novels to come out of the later 20th C.
the narrator is outstanding the whole series is an escape from this ridiculous world.
