I had to stop listening after about 3 hours. This in when I realized that I was reading a book written for 12 year olds.
The narrator is fine, get over it! This book is just as good as the others. Some of the characters are missing because there coinciding events will be told in the next book. Martin has so much to say about each character, he had to split it into two huge books.
Great writer, good story. Not as good as the later books when Hornblower is young.
Hornblower needs a buddy like Stephen Maturin.
Interesting begining, but then it got weak fast. Could not finish. Maybe the end is good, but I am not willing to risk my time.
This second book in the series is lacking some of the original ideas that made the first book so good.
Maybe the wolves have saturated the market to much.
There where passages in this book that felt a bit Twilightish and I almost deleted it from my library before finishing.
I will probably not continue with this series.
I have read all of the books in the series and now I am enjoying them through audio. I normaly do not write reviews but after reading some of the others I had to put my opinion out there for the potential listeners. I have been listening to the Simon Vance narrations and I believe he does Patrick Obrian justice. I accidentaly purchased the Patrick Tull narration of The Surgons Mate and it was difficult to get through due to the slow monotone reading. I have to recommend Simon Vance to potential listeners. The Simon Vance narrations are cheaper and in my opinion far better.
