"Once again, Lambdin manages to interweave several complex story lines into a suitably knotty naval yarn that will appeal to fans of historical maritime fiction." (Booklist)
This is as great as all these stories have been, Wish it wasn't the last audio in the series
None that are this entertainin with such a differnt style hero
Alllen of course, My ass on a bandbox
Both it was very well written to offer the reader both set of emotions I did laugh and cry
Wish they would make just one more to end the chase and leave it ready for the next story
Enjoy Naval adventure in nautical and personal detail.
Of course, Captain Allen Lewrie..center of authors attention. I wanted to see what he caused to happen next.
Yes, John Lee does a good job in English, not so well in other languages. But John Lee is a powerful narrator and is excellent in this series, too.
Allen Lewrie, along with his father, the Colonel.
This was the last of the Allen Lewrie series to be on Audiobook with Audible.com. I assume because its not all naval battles, but deals with personal issues as well as the minutia of a life at sea, the Brtish Naval organization with its colorful characters , as well as the effects of leaving loved one's behind for years at a time.I found the authors concentration in these areas to be rewarding on balance. Not necessary the best of listens for one up mainly for the adventure of Naval warfare. I was interested enough to keep touch with how Allen Lewrie was fairing that I have read the remaining books. And the author is not yet done, as I am certain that the War of 1812 has to be included before the Capatin can retire.Im sure an Admiral by that time.
As is typical of novels with an English perspective of the Napoleonic wars, the English are clearly the good guys. But so what, it's highly engaging and Captain Lurie is distinctly likeable. The picture painted is a vivid one, no muted colors.
