  • Best writing in decades Oct 6, 2011
    by Mary F

    Seriously, the best series of books I've run into in a long,long time! I keep buying it for other people to read too!

    This book introduces us to the series of Aubrey- Maturin historical novels that take place during the Napoleanic wars. The story accurately depicts life aboard a ship of the Royal Navy during the height of England's superiority on the seas. The period language and nautical terminology provide an education for the fans of naval history; the rich character development engages the discriminating fiction reader as well.

    I'm having a hard time getting through it. I've heard it gets better. Lots of technical stuff that bogs it down.
