    The South Seas are a paradise for battle-weary Captain Jack Aubrey and ship's surgeon Stephen Maturin. But their peace is disturbed when Stephen's fancy for a peculiar marine organism lands him overboard. Acting in his usual headstrong fashion, Jack dives into the rescue, unfortunately failing to plan what will happen once they are both in the water watching the sails of the Surprise disappear in the mist.

    One reviewer said P. Tull is like listening to a grandfather tell a story and I agree. That is not what I want in a audio book, I want the change of inflection of voice so I can tell that a character in the book is talking not just the narrator. I can't listen to this, I will have to re-buy the book with S. Vance narrating.

    Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid, flagship of the Universal Union since the year 2456. Life couldn’t be better…until Andrew begins to pick up on the facts that (1) every Away Mission involves some kind of lethal confrontation with alien forces; (2) the ship’s captain, its chief science officer, and the handsome Lieutenant Kerensky always survive these confrontations; and (3) at least one low-ranked crew member is, sadly, always killed.

    It's not too long, and a lot of fun. I recommend to any Star Trek fan.

    Story

    Good story, ok Narration.
    The Feudal Japanese politics got a little over whelming a few times, but the author does a great job of reminding you later if you miss something. I read other James Clavell books years ago, and after listening to this I am going to get the other books in audio format.

    The Narration we good with the Portuguese accents, fine with the general narration, but the robot like Japanese voices are pretty terrible.
