George Alfred Henty well I really must read some other titles by this fellow I thoroughly enjoyed this yes it's uite descriptive maybe a bit too descriptive in some parts but generally Henty actually makes the reader feel like they're with the protagonist Godfrey Bullen escaping from the Siberian prison You feel like you're actually working in the Kara mines drifting through the thick fog then being trapped in the storm at sea or fleeing the Samoyede'sNow anyone condemned to a Siberian prison is warned of the difficulties that will be encountered if escape is attempted However occasionally these escapes have been successful despite the many obstacles and in this tale Godfrey's is just one such successful ventureI'll recommend this book to anyone craving a good old fashioned adventure

Rried out and that under far less advantageous circumstances than those under which the hero of this story undertook the venture. This book was a little different than most of the GA Henty books I have read Most of the other ones are fixated on a particular event and the role that the protagonist takes in that historical event Although Godfrey was present during the Nihilist uprisings he doesn't actually play a part he just gets mixed up in them and sent to Siberia where of course he escapes Most of the story deals with the realities of life in Siberia and Godfrey and his companion's eventual escape I learned a lot about how prisoners were treated in Siberia Of course that all depends on how faithful Henty's work is to reality I don't think he would intentionally mislead his readers but it would be impossible to know exactly what prison life was like if one had not been there However Henty shows an absolute mastery of Siberia's geography which our hero Godfrey as usual also masters but whereas in the other stories the Englishman is the hero who is assisted by a native or two Godfrey had to rely heavily on his companion Luka to make their escape across Siberia

Condemned as a Nihilist George Alfred HentyThere are few difficulties that cannot be surmounted by patience resolution and pluck and great as are the obstacles that nature. I thought this was supposed to be a Ripping Yarn It's kind of slow full of multi paragraph speeches by one character to another on the history and nature of Nihilism political not philosophical Never read Henty before but I was hoping for something betterUpdated Apr 16th Having decided I'd read enough of this I went back to it and finished it today It isn't a ripping yarn really More like a travelogue and rather boring at that Every time the hero and his Tartar friend hunt or fish we get an inventory of how many of this how many of that they catch Endless summaries of how many miles they've come what speed they're travelling at etcThe 'hero' young Godfrey Bullen an English lad condemned wrongly as a Nihilist and packed off to Siberia is a complete non entity He exists simply to embody English pluck and decency superiority to all the Russians and various indigenous peoples and endless resourcefulness In so far as he is 'there' at all he is an intolerable complacent prigAnd yet I found the book strangely hypnotically relaxing to read The very monotony of the escape the boring narration all combined to something well I suppose less than the sum of its parts and the book ended up offering something despite itself
