    • Just because something was written over a century ago, that does not mean it was written well. That has been hammered home in ‘With Clive in India’.It is one of the books freely available on ManyBooks, though I picked my copy up a few years ago in Poundland. Three nineteenth-century stories in one volume, the others being ‘The Man Who Would Be King’ and ‘King Solomon’s Mines’. I love the latter and have glanced briefly at the former; I made the assumption that this story would be s [...]


    • A wonderful tale of adventure during the age of British expansion into India, with daring and romance surrounding the real-life career of Clive, of India.


    • I read this for free through Project Gutenberg. It's an enjoyable way to get a bit of history of early British affairs in India. The Victorian author, Henty (who wrote lots of similar stuff), has no pretensions at writing high literature or analytical history, and the protagonist is pretty one-dimensional (more a perspective-marker than a human being with intricate or fascinating psychology). But, as a popularized, somewhat fictionalized history, it achieves its goals: it presents a lot of inter [...]


    • The book was more like "with Charlie" rather than with Clive for which reason I had purchased this book!!!Extremely disappointing. Too much detail about trivial battles when the real reason I wanted to read this book was to discover how Clive began the empire in India.On the whole there must have been about 10 pages of Clive!!!


    • The life of Charlie Marryat was interesting but as the title indicates most of the book is about the military campaigns that he was party to. I don't really enjoy the accounts of battles so the story left me cold quite a lot of the time. If you enjoy that sort of thing then this is the book for you.
