I just started reading some of our Henty collection after my brother and Mummy both saying (for several years) that they were interesting and worth reading. As a young eight year old I read 'The Lion of St.Mark' and a couple of years later 'The Dash for Khartoum.' After reading these I was thoroughly bored and felt like I was put off for life. But after talking to Mummy and my Biggest Brother about interesting books I could read they both suggested The Henty Collection .
I selected 'Rujub the juggler ' as my first as it was based in India and I have always loved reading books on India. I was originally prepared to read a thoroughly boring book but......It was so exiting! I found it intriguing and thrilling and completely enjoyable as well as learning some interesting things about the English occupying India in the 1800's . I am now reading another I chose to read a couple of days ago and expect to be finished it in a day or two it is called ''The Lost Heir'' (also partly in India) it is very interesting and mysterious. I think I LOVE G.A.Henty books now!!!!
