Hello old boy
on 27 February 2013
Let's be frank - It is not fair to compare modern authors with GMD's style of writing as unfortunately it passed away with him.
No one will be able to successfully recreate his language and so this booked should be judged at face value - not compared with the original Flashman.
Bearing this in mind and reading it with an open mind (although it is of course impossible not to completely draw similarities between the uncle and infamous nephew) this is a very well written and researched book - with plenty of flashy'esk escapes.
5 stars and definitely worth a read for all Flashman fans. Cannot wait until the next instalment
