    Story
    "British classic novel released in the year 1857!"

    Frankly, the only good reason I can find to listen to this Thomas Hughes work is in preparation for listening to The Flashman Papers 12 novel series by George MacDonald Fraser. Oh, some may have interest in British public schools for boys of the 1830's. This novel is set at Rugby Public School. (British public schools are not what most Americans would assume. They are fee based boarding schools which are totally independent of national and local governments. Their purpose in educating the sons of the elite not only in traditional subject matters but also on the proper behavior of gentlemen.)

    Tom Brown is a young man most interested in pleasing his parents, especially his mother. He would never do anything to disappoint or embarrass his parents. When he arrives at Rugby Public School at age 13 Tom falls in with some older boys who help and protect him. As Tom ages and grows in confidence he finds himself befriending and helping the younger boys. But not all of the boys are nice and helpful, and here enters a boy named simply Flashman. Flashman is a clever fellow interested in little other than being mean and hateful to most of his classmates. He is the classic bully. and a cad and a jerk.

    Tom Brown's Schooldays is best viewed as a semi-autobiographical novel by Thomas Hughes who did attend Rugby Public School during the same years as Tom Brown.
