    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 1st Rate Listen"
    Overall

    This may be my favorite O'Brian book though it is less known than the Aubrey/Maturin series. O'Brian is unrivaled in his ability to make us hear the booming of the big guns in battle, but in this book he also shines in the moments when his marvelous comic sense comes to the fore.
