    Master and Commander is the first of Patrick O’Brian’s now famous Aubrey-Maturin novels, regarded by many as the greatest series of historical novels ever written. It establishes the friendship between Captain Jack Aubrey RN and Stephen Maturin, who becomes his secretive ship’s surgeon and an intelligence agent. It displays the qualities which have put O’Brian far ahead of any of his competitors.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Master and Commander to be better than the print version?

    Definitely different, but I am not about to compare apples and oranges


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    Who was the most memorable character of Master and Commander and why?

    It was the duo of Aubrey/Maturin (big surprise there) as the chemistry is simply right.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
