Where does Flashman in the Peninsula rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
The original Flashman books are some of my absolute favorite audiobooks, and Brightwell's tales are every bit as good.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Flashy, of course, followed by Cuesta and the Maid of Zaragotha. Wellesley is portrayed perfectly, of course, with the dry wit one would expect from him.
What about Henry Clore Harrison’s performance did you like?
He has an excellent pace and manages to differentiate each character's voice so that you can easily follow a conversation between even two similar characters.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When Flashy "rescued" the Maid of Zaragotha, and she later told her story of growing up near the soldiers' barracks.
Any additional comments?
It's an excellent tale throughout, and once again, Brightwell does his homework on the war so that most historically-minded readers aren't disengaged *and* still tell an ofttimes funny, often poignant tale of war and misadventure. It's engaging from start to finish and I'll be buying every one in the series.
