(The True Story of Child Abuse Continued) - Child Abuse True Stories dozen books to go and so when I came across Sharpe s Triumph the second book in the series and the first I hadn t read yet I figured it was time to get reacuainted with an old friend It s so good to be back with Ol Sharpie Richard Sharpe was an orphan from the London workhouses He s a tough fighter who escapes life threateninganger time and again through wit bravery and brawn Mostly he wins by kicking ass sometimes literally However at the start. Ll make Wellesley's reputation It will make Sharpe's name to but only if he can survive the carnage and killing frenzy for it is at Assaye that he at last realizes his ambition and has a chance to seize it This major new novel will follow the adventures of Richard Sharpe in India begun so excitingly in Sharpe's Tiger and culminating in the Battle of Assaye which Wellington considered his greatest victory. Sharpes Triumph Sharpe #2Another great Sharpe novel Again the fictional aspect was fairly small explained at the end by the author The hardships the armies their trains had to endure was amazing Poor food horrible medical conditions constant betrayal were all just facts of lifeOne thing Mobilizing Islam did bother me about the ending really bothered me view spoilerSharpe again throws Obadiah to the wolves well elephant this time andidn t make sure he was BWWM (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) *1 (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) *1: Billionaires Secret Baby (BWWM Secret Baby Romance Contemporary Romance) dead Last time it was tigers he survived I find that ridiculous Everything we know about Sharpe find out later points to a man that would not leave an enemy like him alive a second time OK he might beead but I think Sharpe would have made sure this time hide spoiler Well it had to happen I finally found a book by my favourite author that is everything I find tedious about a lot of other authorsIt was Co Meh Sharpe came across as rather a whiny git in this one where there was no real plot to speak of and interminable battle scenes which lead up to a enouement that had been telegraphed from the start I m glad I only look for mindless entertainment in these books unfortunately this one was a great eal of the mindless than the entertainment This is what I expect from Bernard Cornwell Alien Zookeeper's Abduction detailed battles and great characterizations Once again he makes history come alive My mindoes Tyral (Mated to the Alien, drift someuring the battles and that s why audio works very well with this stuff helping me to skim sorta Plus the narrator William Gaminara nails the characters with his voices Book two in the Sharpe seriesThis another ripping yarn from the pen of Bernard CornwellOnce again Richard Sharpe no longer private but newly promoted to Sergeant finds himself up to his neck in it with his mineses Sergeant Obadiah Hakeswill In Sharpe s Tiger Sharpe Finds Himself In The Possession himself in the possession some of the Tippoo of Mysore fabulous wealth Although Sharpe keeps this a secret Hackeswell knows that Sharpe has the treasure and sets a plan to take the treasure for himself Sharpe needs all his cunning and intelligence to stay one step ahead of HackeswellWhilst all this going on the British army with its Indian allies are engaged if the battle of Assaye One of the bloodiest battles ever fought by the British Knocked Up by a Thug during their India campagne Major General Arthur Wellesley is in command of the British army and at one point his horse is shotead from under him Wellesley is in imminent African or American?: Black Identity and Political Activism in New York City, 1784-1861 danger of being killed luckley Sharpe is near by at risk to own life Sharpe manages to save Wellesley For hisaring act of gallantry Wessley awards Sharpe a promotion that is beyond Sharpe emaginingCornwell manages to brings a cinematic feel to the battle scenes All the screaming crying pain and blood lust it s all thereThis is for lovers of a ripping yarn with a history lesson thrown in A 4 star recommendation Review of the audiobook narrated by Frederick DavidsonSharpe s Triumph is lacking in what made me love the first book so much The plot structure which worked so well in Sharpe s Tiger already seems Formulaic Tipu Sultan Was Such A Great Tipu Sultan was such a great in the last book and here there is no compelling antagonist The battle seuences which Cornwell is typically great at are too long and The Logic of Self-Destruction drawn out to be exciting Even if there is some entertainment to be had this all adds up to a bigisappointment after such a great start to the seriesI m going to continue this series although instead of keeping with the recent books 1 5 are preuels written from 1997 2001 I m going to skip to book 6 written in 1988 Part of that Around the Sacred Fire: Native Religious Activism in the Red Power Era decision is to keep the same narrator as this was the latest published book in the series which Frederick Davidson provided narration forIidn t enjoy Frederick Davidson s narration as much in this book although I think it s because of a lack of interesting characters than a The Alchemy of Opposites decline in performanceFinal verdict 3 star story 4 star narration 3 stars overall Sgt Sharpe is at it again This time he is accompanying Gen Wellesley in taking on the Mahratta hordeuring
