Sinossi

THE NUMBER 1 BEST-SELLER!

"Humorous and highly entertaining" ~ The Review

Harry Flashman, step aside, old son. Make way for Charlie Smithers.

"Poetic prose and humorous undertones that are wildly entertaining." ~ Serious Reading

The time is the nineteenth century. The place, the Serengeti Plain, where one Charlie Smithers – faithful manservant to the arrogant bone-head, Lord Brampton (with five lines in Debrett, and a hopeless shot to boot) – becomes separated from his master during an unfortunate episode with an angry rhinoceros, thereby launching Charlie on an odyssey into Deepest Darkest Africa, and subsequently into the arms of the beautiful Loiyan…and that’s where the trouble really begins.

Maasai warriors, xenophobic locals, or evil Arab slavers, the two forbidden lovers encounter everything that the unforgiving jungle can throw at them.

"A truly engaging read that will keep anyone’s attention from the hilarious beginning until the last word. I highly recommend this 5 star novel." ~ Chapters & Chats

5.0 su 5 stelle Well worth the read! 7 febbraio 2013
Di DebG - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

In his first novel, CW Lovatt seems to have found his niche... Historical fiction is my favourite fictional genre, and accuracy with events, culture, geography, and demographics of the period are among the most important attributes good historical fiction. For example, nothing will throw me from a story like coming across a saying that would never have been uttered at that time or in that place, or cultural meme that would not - could not - have been around. I HATE that. In short, it needs to be believable - from the plot to the setting to the characters. That said, a huge kudos must go to Mr. Lovatt for writing a novel that did not, even once, throw me from the story. Rather, this book captured my attention from the first pages and then held on to it. Charlie Smithers is a man I quite simply fell for, from his sweet disposition to his unflinching courage. This book will make you laugh, make you swoon, and make you cry. Seriously. It's well worth the read.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Thrilling and Humorous African Adventure 3 settembre 2013
Di S.L. Menear - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I thoroughly enjoyed the story of Englishman Charlie Smithers' adventures while stranded in the heart of Africa in the 1850s. Charlie's experiences were alternately hilarious, thrilling, heartwarming, and tragic. It was obvious Lovatt had done extensive research. The compelling characters were true to life, and the dialogue was authentic for the time period. I laughed, cried, and breathlessly turned the pages during many suspense-filled scenes. All in all, a true triumph for debut author C.W. Lovatt.

5.0 su 5 stelle An adventure story like we used to have! 21 ottobre 2013
Di Edward Garbowski Jr - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Remember the days as a kid, reading a nice adventure and being swept away into some far off place and living the life of imagination? Think Treasure Island or Huck Finn! Well, it's back with The Adventures of Charlie Smithers.

We are allowed to follow the tale of Charlie Smithers as he is carried off into the "Darkest of Africa". He goes on quite a journey where he finds love and remembers duty; and the best part: he brings us along.

Just start reading the beginning and you'll see. Smithers is forced to run for his life from a giant rhino, but it's done in such a funny way. This is just one technique that Lovatt uses to keep you interested in the on going story.

Lovatt debuts with a bang and a boom. He hits it out of the park and makes you not want to put this book down...which you won't do! I know we will see more from him in the future, and I relish the idea. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a great story.

Bravo!

5.0 su 5 stelle A Tale of Old Fashioned Roaring Adventure. Fasten Your Seatbelt! 19 gennaio 2015
Di R. Dunbar - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
"The Adventures of Charlie Smithers" has often been compared to the Harry Flashman novels, to which it compares quite favorably. It is also reminiscent of such Rider Haggard novels such as "King Solomon's Mines" and "She."
Author C. W. Lovatt has done an admirable job of recreating the atmosphere of 1850s British Colonialism. The narrative voice of Charlie, a Victorian era "gentleman's gentleman," is by turns matter of fact, cynical, and irreverent, just as one might expect from someone who served in his capacity during the era of the Empire.
The book immediately engages the reader's attention through the aforesaid narrative voice, and almost at once launches into a series of hair raising, improbable, and sometimes hilarious misadventures. The action begins with Charlie becoming separated from his "gentleman" by a stampeding rhino. Chased off a cliff by the charging beast, he lands in a river, breaking both ankles and finding himself surrounded by hungry crocodiles. From there, let it just be said that the action and adventure escalate. "The Adventures of Charlie Smithers" is great entertainment, related with great good humor. It will leave you anxious for a sequel.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Great Book! 3 maggio 2013
Di Alison Cope Emann - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

This morning I finished CW Lovatt's book. His story and the two main characters I think will stay with me for the rest of my life. Books come and go and the stories fade with time. The characters blend with others and I get them muddled in my brain. I do not think I will ever forget Charlie, Loiyan and their adventure together.
CW Lovatt, you have written an amazing story. I would swear you lived it out yourself it is so vivid. I would say more about how it affected me but am afraid I'd give away too much. Thank you for a roller coaster read. Up down and all around. It was really quite an experience. (If I didn't make it clear yet, I loved it!)
