Rate this:
A continent-spanning adventure featuring one of literature's greatest rogues

Redmond Barry has almost all the qualities of a gentleman: he speaks well, has learned courtly etiquette, and can hold his own with a sword in hand. But passion is his downfall--passion for life, for excitement, and unfortunately, for his cousin Nora. When he almost kills Nora's suitor in a duel, Barry flees to Dublin, and the adventure of his life begins.

A consummate rake and con man, Barry finds himself on the battlefield against the Prussians in the Seven Years' War after losing everything. But war--and life, for that matter--is not exactly what Barry wished or expected it to be. A braggart's tale through and through, with an antihero of epic proporations, The Luck of Barry Lyndon is a brisk romp through one of literature's most unusual lives.
