I downloaded The Reavers on the basis of its two, existing 5 star reviews and the fact that I've loved the Flashman books in the past. How disappointing. I've only listened to an hour of the eight so far, and I'm not sure whether I'll continue. So far it's taken an awfully long time for the plot to start developing, but it is well read, and the voice characterisations are very good. It's not great on historical detail and there are some curiously modern pop culture references, but some of the humour is quite engaging.
All in all, not a five star audio book by any stretch of the imagination, but bits are quite fun.

Fabulous characters with tongue firmly wedged in cheek. If you want historical niceties this isn't for you but it is very funny.
