    At the outbreak of the War of 1812, America's prospects looked dismal. It was clear that the primary battlefield would be the open ocean but America's war fleet, only 20 ships strong, faced a practiced British navy of more than a thousand men-of-war. Still, through a combination of nautical deftness and sheer bravado, the American navy managed to take the fight to the British and turn the tide of the war.

    K. Winters says: "Fantastic, if complicated, account of the war"
    "An excellent history on a little-known war"

    What was one of the most memorable moments of 1812: The Navy's War?

    The gritty detail of all the naval actions.


    Any additional comments?

    I came into the book only knowing of the war peripherally. By the end, I was glad with the decision to listen to this book -- it gives a very good sense of the time period, which was an extremely important one for the fledgling republic.

    An orphan's life is harsh---and often short---in the island city of Camorr, built on the ruins of a mysterious alien race. But born with a quick wit and a gift for thieving, Locke Lamora has dodged both death and slavery, only to fall into the hands of an eyeless priest known as Chains---a man who is neither blind nor a priest. A con artist of extraordinary talent, Chains passes his skills on to his carefully selected "family" of orphans---a group known as the Gentlemen Bastards.

    Luke A. Reynolds says: "Stupendous, but be warned."
    "Seriously great fantasy brought to life perfectly"
