All of the Hornblower books are excellent and this one is no exception. Forrester is a master of his craft and his detailed knowledge of how the British navy worked and how ships were sailed make the action believable and convincing.
Unfortunately this audio book is spoiled for me by the narrator who has a slow and mournful delivery that sounds like a vicar on Valium preaching a long and boring sermon.
The other books in this series are read by Christian Rodska who does a much better job.
The Godfather is a great book and it is well read by Joe Mantegna. It has, however been cut to far by the abridger. Anyone who has read the original version will miss the detail and the sub-plots that have been omitted. Anyone who has not will not know what they have missed.
