    The story of what happened to Flashman, the caddish bully of Tom Brown's Schooldays, after he was expelled in drunken disgrace from Rugby school in the late 1830s. This is the first of George Macdonald Fraser's hilarious satires starring Harry Paget Flashman.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Flashman to be better than the print version?

    Far superior, the audio edition is perfect for people unfamiliar with British military history or many of the historical figures of Flashman's age.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Flashman?

    Flashman's duel of honor, ( in which he fixes the outcome) which sets the ball rolling for his "heroics" in Afghanistan. He becomes the talk of military society and his gentlemenly conduct lauded when in reality his dishonesty saved his bacon from the fire.... the beginning of many such hilarious situations our protagonist finds himself in.


    Have you listened to any of David Case’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to many of his performances, and this one is just as excellent. Great voices in Mr. Cases repitoire.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not just this audio Flashman but all in the "Flashman Papers" series!!!! Please bring us Flashman's Lady and Flashman in the Great Game and convert abridged into unabridged format.


    Any additional comments?

    The Flashman papers will take you on a rollicking adventure through the annals of British Military history through the eyes of a cowardly, bullying, lechering, and most of all hilarious British officer in the 19th Century. You are in for a treat!!!
