批評家のレビュー

"Sharpe and his creator are national treasures." ( Sunday Telegraph)
"Bernard Cornwell is a literary miracle. Year after year, hail, rain, snow, war and political upheavals fail to prevent him from producing the most entertaining and readable historical novels of his generation." ( Daily Mail)
"Cornwell's narration is quite masterly and supremely well-researched."( Observer)
"The best battle scenes of any writer I've ever read, past or present. Cornwell really makes history come alive." ( George R.R. Martin)

あらすじ・解説

Ensign Richard Sharpe, newly made an officer, wishes he had stayed a sergeant after he is put in terrible danger by Sergeant Obadiah Hakeswill at the impregnable Gawilghur's ravine. 

To regain his confidence and his authority, Sharpe will fight as he has never fought before. 

Soldier, hero, rogue - Sharpe is the man you always want on your side. Born in poverty, he joined the army to escape jail and climbed the ranks by sheer brutal courage. He knows no other family than the regiment of the 95th Rifles whose green jacket he proudly wears.

Please Note: The historical note is NOT included in this audiobook.

Great way to wrap up India!

Another solid chapter in Richard Sharpe's life. Great seeing how he adjusts to being an Ensign.

Love it

This was the best Sharpe story yet in my opinion. I really am enjoying the series notwithstanding that I am not a Great War buff nor have any special interest in that time period in India. The story is great and the historical references have made me curious and interested in the time and setting. Can't wait to start the next one.

Anti gun, but still love Cornwell

Don't understand how I can love this author so much because his books are so violent. Perhaps that violence is in all of us, but just under the surface, hidden away, but by God I love Bernard Cornwell. I love everything he has ever written and am on my second and third listens and/ or reads of each book. His heroes are real heroes. His historical research is marvelous, and he is a wonderful writer. I have learned so much about guns, long bows, artillery and long boats. For the lover of historical fiction, it doesn't get much better than this.

High Octane from the Very Start

I'm honestly not sure how Cornwell does it. I am just glad that he does. This series is, even at this early stage, is showing me exactly why it has won so many plaudits over the years. The action starts from the very first page and continues apace throughout the book. All the conerstones of the previous books are here including the excellent historical knowledge and the engaging characters including of course Obadiah Hakeswill who for his sheer black-souled awfulness has fast become one of my favourite fictional characters.

All of this set against a rich backdrop of the vastness of India and brought to life peerlessly by Rupert Farley though one of the Indian characters did seem to change voicing slightly part way through. A minor comment on an excellent performance as he brought not just the Indian characters to life but also the upper class officers, the belligerent Sharpe and of course the venomous serpent that is Hakeswill.

If you like historical military fiction . . . I have found few better books than this.

Another Cracker!

Love this series so looks like I'm collecting all! The story is classic 'David & Goliath', Richard Sharpe the square peg in the round hole of the officer breed, fights tooth and nail to be accepted and will do so for the rest of his career. But he is a fighter and takes on anyone stupid enough to stand in his way. I also enjoyed Rupert Farley's reading giving the story a boost, not that it needs it, to make it difficult to stop listening. One thing,,, Sharpe was from London and grew up there, so his Yorkshire accent jars a little with me. Apart from that minor gripe, it was an excellent story well told.

Great story as always

Everything top was great except no historical note at the end . Always like to read through that and see which characters and events in the book were real . Can a book be described as unabridged if that isn’t included ? Apart from this though , highly recommended

Superb historical research

An exciting and bloodthirsty dramatisation. The horrors of battle during this period in history are vividly portrayed and fmost graphically described Not for the faint hearted! Interesting story lines reinforce historical facts. Sharpe is a super hero The principals of bravery heroism and honour coupled with elements of humour help to make this well researched story a most enjoyable read. .

absolutely brilliant

I'm a bit of a late joiner to Sharpe. I have read the previous two books and this is the first audio book I have listened to with Rupert Farley as narrator. The books rolls along at a blistering pace and I was faintly disappointed that it seemed to finish so quickly as I was enjoying it so much. RF's narration is the best I've heard in an audible book, he does every character (of which there are many) extremely well and his range is extraordinary. I'm looking forward to Trafalgar next. Go on Sharpe you bastard!

Writing and narration, excellent. The pace is involving from the very start. Helps if you listen to the series in order but. It essential.

If you love reading Sharpe...

you'll love listening to Sharpe, particularly by Rupert Farley. That's three Sharpe novels listened to in two weeks.

Cornwell the master!

Boy's own adventure with great battles and swordplay but Cornwell really allows us to get inside Sharpe' skin and feel all the betrayals, setbacks and triumphs as our own.

happy overall

the narrator does not quite hit sean beans accent all the time and at times other accents slip up. he does sound like he is into the story and exited at the right times. the story itself is exiting and the first account of british india I have read. would definitely recommend
