Hilarious episodes but the end ...,
This review is from: Ancestral Vices (Paperback)
This book is definitely worth a read. There are a number of hilarious episodes including the bath incident and especially the scene at the car wash. I would venture to add that this is perhaps the best Sharpe novel I have read so far after Porterhouse Blue, The Throwback and Vintage Stuff. However, the novel seems to fizzle out as if Sharpe suddenly thought that he had written enough and just wrapped everything up in the most inconsequential way; hence the four stars.
