5.0 out of 5 stars Read this top notch historical novel!, 2 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Blooding of Jack Absolute (Paperback)
Being a huge fan of George McDonald Frazier's 'Flashman' Series I was interested in reading some more historical novels. I was certainly not disappointed with C.C Humphrey's book. It tells the tale of young Jack Absolute around the mid 18th century. The author gives great depth both to his many vivid characters and the places they inhabit. We are taken on an exciting journey from Cornwall to the bustling metropolis of London described in all it's pomp, debauchery and squalor. Later on we come to Canada's bleak wilderness and a war between two superpowers.

I really enjoyed this novel. I found it more humorous and enjoyable than just about any of the Bernard Cornwell's 'Sharpe' series. The book is brilliantly well researched with notes on the authors reading list and adventures at the end. Save a tree and buy this great novel from one of Amazons great 2nd hand book dealers.
