  • Master and Commander (W. W. Norton & Company) – Hardcover (1994)
    by Patrick O'Brian, Geoff Hunt (Photographer)

    Master and Commander

    Hardcover, W. W. Norton & Company
    1994
    English

    This, the first in the splendid series of Jack Aubrey novels, establishes the friendship between Captain Aubrey, RN, and Stephen Maturin, ship's surgeon and intelligence agent, against a thrilling backdrop of the Napoleanic wars. Details of life aboard a man-of-war are faultlessly rendered: the conversational idiom of the officers in the ward room and the men on the lower deck, the food, the floggins, the mysteries of the wind and the rigging, and the roar of broadsides as the great ships close in battle.

Best writing in decades

by Mary F on Oct 6, 2011

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.

Too technical

by Scottgelt on Jul 19, 2007

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