Don't miss the rest of the Aubrey/Maturin series.

"The best historical novels ever written." (The New York Times Book Review)
"No writer alive can move one as O'Brian can; no one can make you laugh so loud with hilarity, whiten your knuckles with unbearable tension or choke with emotion. He is the master." (Irish Times)
Since Patrick Tull's reading of the entire 20 book series is available, that edition is, in my view, a much better choice. A matter of taste, of course, but Tull adds depth that I find missing with this reader.
I am not hard to please when it comes to fiction...I like almost everything. But I am almost 4 hours into this book and find it so dull. There is so much detail about the boat, and not much plot. I keep waiting for something interesting to happen...I hope it does soon or I won't be able to finish it. I like to listen to books while I'm doing chores, but this one has BECOME a chore.
