This review is from: Flashman and the Mountain of Light (The Flashman Papers, Book 4) (Paperback)
As well as covering the above subjects, George Macdonald Fraser provides relentless humour along with a thoroughly good insight into the upheavals that took place in India at the time. That a country which provided the world with wonderful spiritual teachings should have to endure the hateful, yet in some ways delightful, Flashman is awful in the extreme. The reader is made to intensley feel the fears and hopes of the central character who always seems to end up by having his selfish and despicable dreams destroyed (though not completey). Flashman is a lesson to humanity.
