    The year is 1793, the eve of the Napoleonic Wars, and Horatio Hornblower, a 17-year-old boy unschooled in seafaring and the ways of seamen, is ordered to board a French merchant ship and take command of crew and cargo for the glory of England. Though not an unqualified success, this first naval adventure teaches the young midshipman enough to launch him on a series of increasingly glorious exploits.

    Beats TV by a mile. What excitement, sailng without motors for years at a time. Of course there is that problem of ships appearing over the horizon and trying to sink you.
    Written well.

    The final Horatio Hornblower story tells of Napoleon’s plans to invade England. Set in 1805, Hornblower and the Crisis finds Horatio Hornblower in possession of confidential dispatches from Bonaparte after a vicious hand-to-hand encounter with a French brig. The admiralty rewards Hornblower by sending him on a dangerous espionage mission that will light the powder trail leading to the battle of Trafalgar.

    Jean says: "Forester's last book"
    "Captivating. great writing."

    Where does Hornblower and the Crisis rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    a little less than some of this C.S. Forester series but it fills in some of Hornblower's life as an English Sailor.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes
