I haven't read the print edition, I have only listened to the series.
The pllot was very good. However the part where he leads the rebellion was far fetched.
Christian Rodska was perfect for this read.
This is an excellent book. I was throughly entertained. I have always wondered how life is inside North Korea.
I loved the escape across the River that separates China from North Korea.
I listened to this book on my way back and forth to work.
The first half of the book was very interesting, however as it went on, the characters became more and more one dimensional. The plot became more pedestrian and silly. If you want good post apaptoliptic writing and plot stick with Steven King's The Stand.
The most disappointing part of the book is that once you become invested in the plot you are forced to listen even as the story becomes more and more mundane.
I really only kept listening because the narrator was so good.
A ship of the line is a wonderful book. I have read all but one of the Hornblower series of books. I will be reading the final one when I get my next credit. Any of the Hornblower series is is a great read. And Christian Rodska is a fantastic reader. He is able to invest himself to each character in the novel. His ability to read for a woman, old man or young child is fascinating. I never stop to think that this is the same person He is always able to keep in character through many lines of dialog.
What I like about Hornblower is that he does have some faults. He is human character with many of the same insecurities as all of us. However his mental abilities put him above most of the other characters in the book. I find it enjoyable to read a book where loyalty to duty and country are rewarded. You would not be disappointed if you purchased this book, nor any of the other Hornblower series.
