Excellent story as with all Flashman books, but slightly spoiled by the performance. The narrator alternated between very softly spoken and very loud, which made it difficult or impossible to listen to in the car, on earphones etc. A pity, because he was otherwise quite good.
What did you like most about Flashman's Lady?
Great evocation of early cricket matches and, as ever, GMF knows how to pace a book. It's a great shame the actor reading it isn't any where near good enough. Wrong voice and some awful reading gaffes [ doesn't anyone monitor the recordings ]
Get Timothy West to read them.I heard the best Flashman [ for me ] F in the Great Game
read by him and the voice is spot on.
How could the performance have been better?
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

What would have made Flashman's Lady better?
Unfortunately the narrator would have been better reading Wind in the Willows,
Wrong voice, wrong pauses,
Has Flashman's Lady put you off other books in this genre?
No I will check who the reader is.....
What didn’t you like about Colin Mace’s performance?
Sorry but no, wrong voice
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Flashman's Lady?
too much telling,
