Yes, great story and narration, lots of fun and loads of history.
The adventure, the humor, the narrator, the history
All of them.
Not a better name.
Worth listening to over and over.
The irascible character of Harry "Flash" Flashman is compelled by various forces to join the John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry. Along the way, Flash encounters many characters who sport a variety of accents- Upper Crusty English, Scottish, American Southern, to name a few. This narrator does a good job with the British accents, and handles John Brown himself with aplomb. The whining, keening tone of Brown's rhetoric still resonates in my head. What the narrator does best is take certain phrases and make them immensely humorous. I laughed outloud at some of the well-timed comments.
