Very good.

As a digression, anyone read the Flashman books by George Macdonald Fraser?

The books are an absolute treat, 12 in all, brilliantly written, historically pretty accurate and downright hilarious. Think the film was based on the second book, Royal Flash.

The film fits in with the revisionism of Victorian times that was popular in the sixties (though the film is seventies) and Richard Lester was quite good at that sort of satirical film. I remember really enjoying it.

Absolutely loved them, Budget. In my late teens, early twenties, I must have read them three times each.

Flashman at the Charge, was my favourite.

I keep meaning to read them again because they definitely warrant it. There were a couple that weren't as high quality as the rest but favourites of mine are probably the first two, Flashman and Royal Flash, because they got me into the series and I loved Flashman and the Redskins. Flashman at the Charge must have been the one when he was in the Crimea I guess.

You say there were twelve, eh? I have missed a few - I think the last I read was set around the Boxer Rebellion.

I never did history at school, and reading the Flashman series made me realise how much I had missed out on.

Royal Flash was very good, as was the one that was Flashy getting involved in the slave trade, and running into Abraham Lincoln a couple of times. Was was Flashman and the Great Game about? - as I thought the "Great Game" was the struggle between Russia and Britain for control over India and the "Stans" to the north, but that was covered in Flashman at the Charge....

Flash for Freedom was the one where he ran into Abe Lincoln, that was a belter aswell. Flashman and the Great Game was I believe one of the ones I struggled with so I couldn't tell you what that one was about.

I'm pretty sure he wrote twelve, he used to push out one every four or five years in the eighties and nineties, think he wrote his last about 10 years ago and I think he died about 3/4 years ago.

Sorry to be so vague, but my memory is pretty attrocious. Need to read them all again!
