Publisher's Summary

H.M.S. Surprise follows the variable fortunes of Captain Jack Aubrey's career in Nelson's navy as he attempts to hold his ground against admirals, colleagues, and the enemy, accepting a commission to convey a British ambassador to the East Indies. The voyage takes him and his friend Stephen Maturin to the strange sights and smells of the Indian subcontinent, and through the archipelago of spice island where the French have a near-overwhelming local superiority.

    "Why abridged?"

    I bought this version by mistake. If you're an O'Brian fan avoid this like the plague. Where are the unabridged versions? The Americans have them.

    "Robert Hardy is the best voice for Jack Aubrey"

    The only pity is that these are abridged versions. Otherwise they are perfect. Very much recommend.
