    (181)

    In the wake of a humbling incident aboard a canal boat in the Cotswolds, young Captain Horatio Hornblower arrives in London to take command of the Atropos, a 22-gun sloop barely large enough to require a captain. Her first assignment under Hornblower's command is as flagship for the funeral procession of Lord Nelson. Soon Atropos is part of the Mediterranean Fleet's harassment of Napoleon, recovering treasure that lies deep in Turkish waters

    Edward C. Charbonnet says: "Great fun and adventure in 1806"
    "Terrible Narrator"

    Story

    I adore the Hornblower stories and excitedly listened to all of them. The others, performed by Christian Rodska, are magnificent. I couldn't turn them off. Unfortunately, Nicolas Coster has a slow, ponderous storytelling style that is completely out of sync with the adventures or Horatio Hornblower. He actually manages to make this story sound boring. And it's definitely not boring. Listen to the other Hornblowers and skip this one.
