Description

In volume II of The Flashman Papers, Flashman tangles with femme fatale Lola Montez and the dastardly Otto Von Bismarck in a battle of wits which will decide the destiny of a continent.

In this volume of The Flashman Papers, Flashman, the arch-cad and toady, matches his wits, his talents for deceit and malice, and above all his speed in evasion against the most brilliant European statesman and against the most beautiful and unscrupulous adventuress of the era.

From London gaming halls and English hunting fields to European dungeons and throne rooms, he is involved in a desperate succession of escapes, disguises, amours, and (when he cannot avoid them) hand-to-hand combats. All the while the destiny of a continent rests on his broad and failing shoulders.

Critiques

"Sparkling one-liners adorn every chapter.... It is the verve of the storytelling, together with the verbal inventiveness, that lingers in the memory." ( Sunday Telegraph)

Halarious anti-hero.

Flashman is a cynical, cowardice, racist bully - the kind of man who we secretly do not hate entirely because we are not sure how to convincingly hold the position of total lack of admiration for such men. To his credit, he is a most talented polyglot, horseman, and womaniser, and his adventures in the midst of major macro political events of the 19th century takes the reader laughing though history's I'll-lit side-allies. There, the story's anti-hero upholds the British empire by running from its enemies, sleeping with the maximum possible amount of women, and more often than not manages to wriggle himself out of the absurd kinds of trouble he repeatedly finds himself in. Hilariously written. Excellent stuff.

Flashman brought to life!

Fantastic story that races along paralleling Anthony Hope's famous novel. The narrator is absolutely perfect!
