5.0 out of 5 stars Flashy, 27 May 2006

I've read them all, several times over the last 35 years or so. I've just started reading them all again and they are still bone achingly funny, accurate from a historic point of view, and just unputdownable. They are laugh out loud in bed and wife asking what you are laughing at books. Just buy them if you have even the slightest interest in Victorian history and the history of the British Empire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Audio Heaven, 15 Jun 2011

This review is from: Flashman (Flashman 01) (Audio CD)
For a long time people had expounded the brilliance of the flashman and the books are damn fine to read, i don't think it needs me or anyone else to write a review saying about the high quality of the writing and characters... but for me the real brilliance comes to the fore when the book is read by the likes of Rupert Penry-Jones.
I love to listen to the Flashman books on audio format when im on holiday, the only issue i have is to make sure i dont start talking like a Victorian cad whilst going to the bar to get a drink.

If you love the books and have not tried the audio format yet do so, i promise you its a whole new way to experience the world of Flashman, and if you are new to the Man...go on..you will love him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 16 July 2012

Penry-Jones brings the first part of Fraser's classic saga to life. For anyone who has read the original (and if you haven't then why not) will not be disappointed. The voices - from Flashie's Scottish wife Elspeth to Prince Albert are all very well judged. It's very funny all the way through; no mean feat considering the tragic though farcical background. I could not recommend this more highly.

I listen to a lot of audiobooks and this is one of the best I've heard. The narration and story are both top class.
