One of the classics of English children's literature, and one of the earliest books written specifically for boys, this novel's steady popularity has given it an influence well beyond the upper middle-class world that it describes. It tells a story central to an understanding of Victorianlife, but its freshness helps to distinguish it from the narrow schoolboy adventures that it later inspired. The book includes an introduction and notes by Andrew Sanders.

A nice story, a great book for kids and adults alike.

I read this rather sentimental and trite coming of age novel for one reason and that is that it inspired one of my favorite series: George MacDonald Fraser's rousing, sardonic, and badly behaved Flashman series. Flashman appears as the school bully and Fraser brilliantly built a long-running series around this ne'er do well. So for the serious Flashman fan, this is of interest, but it will hardly appeal to anyone else, as it's preachy and dull. Originally published in 1857.
