Charles O'Malley, the Irish Dragoon volume 1 of 2 Charles Lever Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

First half of the popular novel, first published in 1841. According to Wikipedia: "Charles James Lever (31 August, 1806 - 1 June, 1872) was an Irish novelist... In 1845 he resigned his editorship and went back to Brussels, whence he started upon an unlimited tour of central Europe in a family coach. Now and again he halted for a few months, and entertained to the limit of his resources in some ducal castle or other which he hired for an off season. Thus at Riedenburg, near Bregenz, in August 1846, he entertained Charles Dickens and his wife and other well-known people. Like his own Daltons or Dodd Family Abroad he travelled continentally, from Karlsruhe to Como, from Como to Florence, from Florence to the Baths of Lucca and so on, and his letters home are the litany of the literary remittance man, his ambition now limited to driving a pair of novels abreast without a diminution of his standard price for serial work ("twenty pounds a sheet").
