    Captain Jack Aubrey, R.N., arrives in the Dutch East Indies to find himself appointed to the command of the fastest and best-armed frigate in the Royal Navy. He and his friend Stephen Maturin take passage for England in a dispatch vessel, but the War of 1812 breaks out while they are en route. Bloody actions precipitate them both into new and unexpected scenes where Stephen's past activities as a secret agent return on him with a vengeance.

    Lawrence says: "Fabulous Narration"
    "Some of the best writing, and narration, ever!"

    Story

    I have fallen head-over-heals for the Aubrey/Maturin series, which I first discovered on Audible. That first book (Master and Commander) was narrated by Simon Vance, and a he is a big reason I am so enamored with this series. Vance's narration of Jack Aubrey's voice, in particular, is a joy to hear. He brings the spirit of Capt Aubrey alive.

    On a side note, I once accidentally downloaded one of the books narrated by Patrick Tull, and was not impressed. Tull appears to be the favorite, though, so I guess you like what you are used to.
