Love these Flashman books, this was a good one. Also my first Flashman in print as opposed to audiobook. I love the audiobooks. It missed the annotations of the print. Might need to re-read these in the future.

The Sleep Room, by F.R. Tallis

  • Title:  The Sleep Room
  • Author: F.R. Tallis
  • Borrowed from Fairfax, VA Public Library (AudioBook)
  • Started:  4/18/2017
  • Finished:  4/22/2017
My second book by Tallis, the first one of which I read two years ago, The Voices.  I liked the Voices better, overall, but as I mentioned in that review it left too many questions unanswered.

The Sleep Room, on the other hand, wraps things up at the end.  A pretty good gothic-ish haunted (kind of) novel, overall I enjoyed it.

Dodge City: Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson, and the Wickedest Town in the American West, by Tom Clavin

Read a favorable review of this book in the WSJ and with my interested in Westerns and the Old West I wanted to give it a try.  Overall an enjoyable book, not as engaging as some historical novels but still entertaining.

Flashman and the Tiger, by George MacDonald Fraser

Title: Flashman and the Tiger
Author: George MacDonald Fraser
Borrowed from Fairfax VA public library Audiobook
Started: 4/4/2017
Finished: 4/8/2017

Another Flashman book, really love these. This one was made up of three stories.  The first was not great, and it was the longest by far, but it was still entertaining. The second two, though very short, were great fun.
