  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 12/29/2013

    " Flashie is always a pleasure. I read this one as I rode the train across the country. Coincidentally, we went through Harpers Ferry which is the scene of much of this book, a satire with remarkable historic detail. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fred R | 11/13/2013

    " John Brown: mad for God, mad for glory. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 T | 10/29/2013

    " Funny fiction of a rotten British agent in the 19th Century. Good history lesson too. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dorian Thornley | 10/27/2013

    " A lot of history and not a lot of action. If you are interested in John Brown and the abolitionists, you'll get a lot out of it. If not, it's just an endless character description of a dithering zealot, and what exactly happened at Harper's Ferry. Not the best Flashman IMO. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Russell | 9/22/2013

    " Not my favourite of the series perhaps because I didn't know much about the history in this case "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Yumna | 9/8/2013

    " God why did I read this extremely chauvinistic and amatory book?? *horrified* "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara | 3/26/2013

    " Flashman reluctantly participates in John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry, WV, 1859. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick\ | 12/9/2012

    " Superior. A chuckle a page. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 10/19/2012

    " Flashy joins John Brown. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom | 9/23/2012

    " Fantastic on its own. 50/50 if you are already a flashy fan. I feel slightly bad giving it only three stars but compared to the great game and the other greats i think thats all i can give it at the moment. Sorry Flashy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bernard Dogon | 8/27/2012

    " Kicks ass, rollicking good read about an English officer who's a total bastard yet always lands with his ass in the butter... very funny, raunchy and educational, as the author always portrays him crucial historical events that changed history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rina | 4/17/2012

    " Finally read Flashman after a friend recommended it 5 years ago--it was just as good as she said, history for schoolboys. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Richard | 4/11/2012

    " American Civil war is a bit boring to me so it was a struggle to get through this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James Robbins | 2/17/2012

    " I've read all the Flashman books and loved every one.I first encountered the character in The American a stand alone novel.He is minor character. Then I realized I had 25 years worth of novels to read. Really funny, a humourous take on history. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert Jr. | 2/12/2012

    " Flashy! If you're not reading a Flashman book, you should be. And don't skip the footnotes. Though it's near to impossible to find one that's better than another, this one and Flashman at the Charge! are my two favorites. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matthew | 1/17/2012

    " Decent outing. To be honest I like it better when Flashy is in tropical climes. The American novels leave me a bit cold... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauri Sholar | 6/23/2011

    " Not my favorite Flashman, but still entertaining. Oh, Flashy. You old so-and-so. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ajj | 6/12/2011

    " Being American and loving the time around the Civil War in particular this volume of the Flashman Papers was a real treat. I like seeing famous Americans who seem larger than life in our history books through the eyes of a self-important Englishman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janelle V. | 3/29/2011

    " In the same very enjoyable vein of fiction as Thomas Berger's Little Big Man and possessing some of the same narrative rhythm as Huckleberry Finn. "
