"There are better versions out there"
I am reviewing the quality of the audiobook here and not the story. I found this version of "Post Captain: Aubrey-Maturin" hard to follow and not worth the price. There are other unabridged version of this on audio book which have more clarity and do more justice to Patrick O'Brian's work.
An Abridged book - bought by accident - and not worth the effort - all the enjoyment of the book surgically removed,
when can we have the full set (of 21) unabridged books?
very difficult to get into, narration is terrible, sounds like the narrator is in a hurry to finish. wish I'd taken more notice of the other less favourable reviews. does not do justice to the author's work.
"Not Master & Commander"
Poor - little substance - Just not the film, Robert Hardy drones so even a poor book is not listenable. Pity the exchange scheme was not available at the time of purchase
"Post Captin; abridged"
The peace with France has come and Jack and Stephen have time for a house, hunting and love. Jack can't decide between the 2 cousins but Stephen knows which one has taken his heart. Diana wants a rich husband, Jack, but prefers talking with Stephen. Sophia loves Jack but won't marry without her mothers permission. Her mother will never let her marry a poor man let alone one in debt so when the money is all stolen away Jack and Stephen must get a ship. Now if only the friends can keep from the old trap of falling out over a woman!
This may be abridged but the reading is excellent and the music is sensitively placed. Well worth the listen.
