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.
