    The Mutiny E–book/E–pub A good drama although it could have done with character development on the Indian side and without the odd attempt to rehabilitate the British empire in just two paragraphs in the postscript

Summary The Mutiny

The Mutiny review Ü 104 P against their British officers Thus begins the most savage episode in our imperial history Caught up in the violence is pretty Sophie Hardcastle a young wife and mother newly arrived from England As she searches for her infant son missing in the chaos Sophie finds herself bearing witness to atrocities on both sidesMoving sombre and thrilling. 35 stars for me It was an easy read about a subject i wasn t really aware of and i came away knowing about the mutiny in India in the 1800 s I felt that although the the writing style was easy to follow some characters were always on the periphery and just when you thought you d find out the story took a different turn and so you never had a real thread to follow with all the characters The one character that i felt i had a connection with or felt the most was made of was lavanya she had been with the British family from the beginning and when the mutiny started to saw her journey to the end and felt for her and realised this may have been what it had been like for many living in that time and circumstance The writing descriptively was also beautiful of the landscapes and maybe not so with the battle scenes etc but that being said although not for the fainthearted really made you feel the sights sounds and smells It did sometimes feel that you were being a history lesson and this then felt as if the author had lost his way with the telling of the fictional element and wanted to put in the historical parts but knowing how and this then read like a factual book not that this wasn t done well but made for me the thread of the book a bit stop start I would pick up another book by this author as it wasn t are difficult read stylistically and think his handling of history is an easy one to read

The Mutiny review Ü 104 Rathbone's tale is told on a grand scale ranging from the Cannings in Government House to the heroism of the humblest soldiers and peasants It is as exhilarating as any Victorian adventure story and yet with its unflinching examination of religious fanaticism and the horrors of war THE MUTINY also carries a powerful message for the modern world.

The Mutiny review Ü 104 For its British population the India that swelters in the late spring of 1857 is a place of amateur theatricals horseracing and flirtations under the aegis of the omnipotent East India company But a brutal awakening lies in store for the complacent British one May night after thirty years of abuse the East India Company's native soldiers rise u. This is let s get it straight right at the start an interesting read but it has a flaw It starts off as a work of fiction the Indian Mutiny as experienced by a group of English women living on the Army base at Meerut We experience life as they saw it hot dusty petty and interfacing with a culture that is seen as dirty and contemptible We see the hatred grow often fanned by ambitious powerless former rulers who simply want either a very comfortable lifestyle provided by the British or change Religious hatred and intolerance go hand in hand with contempt for those of another race white or brown The Mutiny when it comes is bloody as scores are settled and betrayal runs hand in hand with murder A reaction and brutal revenge is on the cards The latter half of the book seems to lose its direction and rather than continuing to be a tale about struggle and survival becomes an historical account of how the British regained India It s interesting if not a little episodic in parts Rathbone links in one or two references to his heroines of earlier but they play a very incidental role The book in short loses its sense of direction it metamorphoses from one kind of creature into another and not necessarily for the best As a byword I liked Rathbone s brief summary where he reminds us that the India before the coming of the Europeans was a mixture of petty kingdoms each locked in petty wars and in suppressing their peoples After the Mutiny when the British take over properly rather than leaving it to the Company to sort things out things actually get a lot better and the seeds for a free and independent democracy are sown These nasty Imperialists weren t as nasty as we re told Virtually all the taxes raised in India went back to building a better country interesting
