Good but if you are new to Sharpe read Porterhouse Blue first,
This review is from: Blott on the Landscape (Paperback)
As usual Sharpe pokes fun at the British with his usual wit and sense of irony, but for me this time he does not have the same well perceived characters as in Porterhouse Blue. There is very much the same divide across the classes that non-British will find an amusing anachronism but with the University background it felt so much more natural in South Worfordshire it seems more contrived.
It is still a fun book with wonderfully absurd characters but for me I enjoyed Porterhouse much more.
