3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 30 Nov. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Flashman and the Tiger: And Other Extracts from the Flashman Papers (The Flashman Papers, Book 12) (Paperback)
I was very disappointed in this book. After waiting 5 years since the last one and expecting a comprehensive account of the victorian scoundrel's shirking at Rorke's drift and Islandawanha imagine my disappointment to find that not only is that episode in the shortest of the three stories in this book but the Zulu campaign is dealt with very briefly, covering less than 10 pages, the rest of it being taken up with an encounter with characters from another victorian series. This is all very clever but not what I'd expected and not very interesting.
The main story is set in the 1880's and deals with a European crisis, drawing on elements from Royal Flash, interesting enough but not good enough for the first Flashman book for 5 years. Overall, I'd expected better. Maybe I'll get something better in another 5 years.
