About Jack Absolute: “Jack Absolute” and “The Blooding of Jack Absolute”.
Now Jack is one of my favourite fictional characters.
Can’t wait to read them!!
Good luck! Very interesting books.
Please tell me if you know of other good historical novels! ;)
I recommend you read The Luck of Barry Lyndon by William Thackeray, Historical miniatures by Valentine Pikul, Foxes in the Vineyard by Lion Feuchtwanger, Sharpe’s and Hornblower’s novels and Jack Aubrey novels, and Richard Bolitho novels too, Mutiny on the Bounty by Charles Nordhoff and James Norman Hall.
The Absolute books are great! Read “The Blooding.”
