    This is the first novel Patrick O'Brian ever wrote about the sea, a precursor to the Aubrey/Maturin series. The Golden Ocean shares the high-seas adventure and rich humor of this triumphant series, invoking the eloquent style and authentic historic atmosphere that O'Brian fans love so much. In 1740, two young Irishmen, lifelong friends Peter and Sean, join Commodore Anson and his crew on their quest for fortune and fame on the golden ocean.

    Collcolleen says: "Patrick O'Brien at His Best!"
    "A wonderful prequel to Master and Commander"
    Overall

    This is a wonderful entertaining prequel to the Master and Commander series. The writing and reading are lyrical and thoroughly engrossing. The text is spare and perfectly suited to the time of place of the story. One is transported to the British Navy of the 18th century with all of its cultural, ritualistic and stylistic norms. I have listened to the entire Master and Commander series three times and am now listening to Golden Ocean for the second.
    This is very highly recommended for anyone who can appreciate excellent writing, reading and storytelling.
