Yet another of George MacDonald Fraser's Flashman Papers I enjoyed
Yet another of George MacDonald Fraser's Flashman Papers I enjoyed. I approached this one with a little trepidation, having read less-than-glowing recommendations and having been forewarned about the extensive Cricket content (me being an American with very little knowledge of the sport). However, I found it to be much better than expected and I did learn a lot about Cricket through this book. I admit there were times when I felt Fraser could have wrapped up Flashman's Lady sooner to good effect. But, I realize there is a backdrop of actual history the Flashman tales float upon.
