A day isn't complete without Patrick Tull to listen to! Desolation Island continues the life story of Cap't. Jack Aubrey & Dr. Stephen Maturin whom I happily follow from one end of the ocean to another, as long as they keep sailing together. They are such great companions &, as our eyes & ears into the history of the early 19th century British Navy, they are great foils for one another. Maturin's interest in nature & Jack's in sailing give us a whole picture that is lovingly rendered. The high seas adventures continue & I would have it no other way than as read by Patrick Tull, narrating the various accents with ease & allowing the drama to carry itself, which it does effortlessly.
