    H.M.S. Surprise, the third in O'Brian's acclaimed Aubrey-Maturin series, follows the variable fortunes of Captain Jack Aubrey's career in Nelson's navy, as he attempts to hold his ground against admirals, colleagues, and the enemy, and accepts a commission to convey a British ambassador to the East Indies. The voyage leads him and his friend Stephen Maturin to the strange sights and smells of the Indian subcontinent, and through the archipelago of Spice Islands where the French have superiority.

    Katy says: "A well spoken story."

    Would you listen to H.M.S. Surprise again? Why?

    I enjoy all Patrick O'brian's stories and I am delighted that they are beginning to be recorded as audible books. I wish they'd hurry up and record all of this series.


    What does Ric Jerrom bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ric Jerrom brings out the humour and accents of the different characters. His voice is excellent for this story.


    Who was the most memorable character of H.M.S. Surprise and why?

    All of them.
