    Story
    (220)

    Her Majesty's ship Sutherland is a humdrum ship of the line. But in command is none other than the heroic Captain Hornblower and, with his crew from the Lydia, he looks set to take on commando raids, hurricanes at sea, and Napoleons's gun batteries.

    Rollin says: "Wonderful Hornblower"
    "Always a joy to listen to a Hornblower book"

    What did you love best about A Ship of the Line?

    The narrator has a droll, amusing delivery, which took a short time to get used to, having become used to Patrick Tull reading the Aubrey/Maturin series. Once I accepted this guy's voice, though, the Hornblower books quickly became favorites. They are worthy of multiple listens.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Ship of the Line?

    Hornblower's continual rise amid doubts and self recrimination.


    What about Christian Rodska’s performance did you like?

    His wry delivery of the voices.


    If you could take any character from A Ship of the Line out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Leftenant Bush. I am to similar to Hornblower to enjoy his company, but I could get along with Bush for the same reasons the hero does.

    Bobbi Anderson and the other good folks of Haven, Maine, have sold their souls to reap the rewards of the most deadly evil this side of Hell.

    Would you listen to The Tommyknockers again? Why?

    No, unlike IT and The Stand, Tommyknockers did not feel like a multi-read King book. It was fun once.


    What other book might you compare The Tommyknockers to and why?

    If you liked Duma Key, you will probably like this one. It has better characters than Under the Dome.


    Which character – as performed by Edward Hermann – was your favorite?

    Gard was very believable as someone fighting (losing to) addiction as he tries to make sense of a senseless scenario.


    If you could take any character from The Tommyknockers out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Pete. Read it and you'll understand. Everyone should meet a Pete.
