Another classic from GMF the existence of which I knew nothing of until this audio version appeared on audible.
It's a really engaging book, with enjoyable overlaps with the life of Gen Sir Harry Flashman.
A decent length, I've had fun listening to it in recent days and it has just kept be company on the 12 hour drive up to the north of Scotland.
Well worth a listen/read.

What would have made Mr American better?
Make it half as long. The thought processes of the hero were read in an annoying monotone
Would you ever listen to anything by George MacDonald Fraser again?
Yes, I like this author a lot but this not this work.
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of William Hope?
Essentially it is the book's problem not that of the narrator.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Mr American?
Much of the slow deterioration of the hero's marriage.
