    This tale begins with Jack Aubrey arriving home from his exploits in the Mediterranean to find England at peace following the Treaty of Amiens. He and his friend Stephen Maturin, surgeon and secret agent, begin to live the lives of country gentlemen, hunting, entertaining, and enjoying amorous adventures. Their comfortable existence, however, is cut short when Jack is overnight reduced to a pauper with enough debts to keep him in prison for life. He flees to the continent to seek refuge.

    Story

    I could not buy these books abridged - half the pleasure is in the recreation of the language of the Georgian navy and the ebbing and flowing of the friendship of the two main characters is a subtle thing.

    Ric Jerrom does a fantastic job of narrating and I will wait for the rest of his recordings of the series rather than switching to one of the other versions.

    So good that I couldn't wait until my next credits arrived and had to purchase - the first time I have done this!
