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.
Hornblower's continual rise amid doubts and self recrimination.
