Marvelous, as usual

by David A R on Sep 1, 2011

Patrick O'Briens nearly lifetime dedication to depicting the Royal Navy of Napoleonic times kept getting better and better with each novel. This book was the last of this line and it provided the reader with excitement and adventure in full measure as well providing his characters Aubrey and Maturin with ample rewards including an Admirals rank for Aubrey. These characters will sail on and on but unlike the Flying Dutchman they will attain more and more glory


Aubrey Unmanned

If the series had to end, and it did, then there was no finer, more satisfying way, than with Blue at the Mizzen. Jack and Stephen accomplish their missions with extraordinary precision. The pair is now mature, and little effort is wasted in accomplishing their goals, or bringing the reader to a thrilling conclusion. The two function as a single unit, whose purpose is the defeat of England's enemies. Jack is left in shreds for Stephen to sew back together, and the result is a matured, wiser man, who is ready to assume the role of Admiral. Jack has helped train the next generation, and they will take over the decks of fighting ships from Jack and his generation. All move on, but the English Navy remains. Patrick O'Brian has created a masterpiece.
