    "Enemy in Sight is "OUT OF SIGHT"!!"

    Exciting page turner.I found myself driving around just to hear more.Patrick O Brian and Jack Aubrey,CS Forester and Horatio Hornblower are great listens that I highly reccomend, but Alexander Kent and the narrator,Michael Jayston...WOW !! They really give you your money's worth from the get go.Interesting characters,multiple exciting battle scenes....a genuine "feel" for life at sea during the Napoleonic wars.
    It is such a treasure to find books like this to listen to.Trust me.If this sounds like your cup of tea,you will quickly exhaust the remaining Alexander Kent titles and THEN move on to CS Forrester and Patrick O'Brian if you haven't already............AUDIBLE !!Get us more stuff like this !!

    "Enemy in Sight"

    This was my first Alexander Kent book. It was great and so was Michael Jayston's narration. I am now going to see if Audible has the first in this series and see if I can read them in order. The 1790 sea stories are my favorite period. Kent did a super job with the battle scenes, I felt as if I was right in the middle of it.

    "GREAT BOOK"

    I'm a very BIG fan of Alexander Kent's book. these books take you on an adventure that won't let you stop reading.
    Please get more of Alexander Kent'S books, I'll buy each one.
    As a lover of these type of books, Alexander Kent's novals are the first to make a character come so real that you can feel his pains and thoughts.
    Truely amazing books.

    "very discriptive"

    very good reading keeps one interested all the way through to the point that you cant turn it off enjoyed this book.
    Alexander Kent puts the story over so well with the voice changing for the different caricters.
    will only purchase books read by Alexander Kent.
    wonderful story's if you like old navel traditions when the ships were under sail.
    and now on to the next one.

    "Cracking Adventure"

    A well written book that takes you to a number of theatres of war which culminates in a graphic description of a sea battle that has you sitting on the edge of your seat.
