A wondrous exception! An imaginative dash thru historical situations makes for an amazingly fast paced, humorous read. Took a few minutes to get used to the readers pace, and tone, but after that, really liked him, also. Not for the prudish, but sexual situations are well written, and in good fun, not some sort of thrown in appeal to teenage prurient interest. Check out Amazon for reviews of the author's other Flashman novels. Can only pray they will add his other Flashman books. Perhaps not Fraser's best, but excellent nonetheless. More humor than the O'Brian books, and as good, in their own way.

A worthy addition to the Flashman opus- though not the best starting place for newcomers to this series. Readers who love Sharpe will adore Flashie. Fraser offers a rollicking romp through history through Flashman's wonderfully jaundiced eyes. Irreverent, poignant, factual, bawdy, action-packed-- these books are a find.
I hope Audible will offer all the Flashman books so readers can start at the beginning. If not, read the others first, then enjoy this audiobook for dessert. David Case (aka Frederick Davidson) is the perfect reader.
