Definitely different, but I am not about to compare apples and oranges
Stephen Maturin, he is the man of the enlightenment. He has stood behind ideals and became disillusioned, but he is still able to feel childlike joy.
It was the duo of Aubrey/Maturin (big surprise there) as the chemistry is simply right.
This book is heavy in nautical terms/slang.
If you don't like Age of Sail stories, consider to decrease the story rating by one or two stars.
If you want to read your first Age of Sail story, this can get you hooked, the print book did it for me.
