Patrick O'Brian is one of the finest writers of the 20th century and this is one of his best chapters in the Aubrey-Maturin series. His prose and Patrick Tull's mastery of high Irish, dockyard English, and the workings of sailing ships and Nelson's navy give you a front row seat to the thrills and dangers of the high seas during Napeoleon's domination af Europe. You won't find a better read. Intoxicating!!
