    Story
    (158)

    It is 1780, and 17-year-old Alan Lewrie is a brash, rebellious young libertine. So much so that his callous father believes a bit of naval discipline will turn the boy around. Fresh aboard the tall-masted Ariadne, Midshipman Lewrie heads for the war-torn Americas, finding - rather unexpectedly - that he is a born sailor, equally at home with the randy pleasures of the port and the raging battles on the high seas. But in a hail of cannonballs comes a bawdy surprise.

    Story
    What did you love best about The King's Coat?

    While there is definite continuity across the entire storyline, it is largely a series of episodic adventures. This plot structure conveniently enables short listening periods (30 minutes to an hour) during which the listener can enjoy some real excitement. Even still, there is enough character and plot development that I was left craving for what would come next. The plot is great at both macro and micro levels. Additionally, the author includes a wealth of subject knowledge, securing both my attention and respect.


    What other book might you compare The King's Coat to and why?

    I happened to listen to 'Genghis: Birth of an Empire' around the same time. Genghis simply had none of the structure or subject knowledge necessary to keep my interest.
