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

"Jack's assignment: to capture the Indian Ocean islands of Réunion and Mauritius from the French. That campaign forms the narrative thread of this rollicking sea saga. But its substance is more beguiling still." (Newsweek)
Rarely does a series hold my attention, let alone grab me as this book did, especially the third book in said series. However, this book was so well written, the performance amazing and true history closely followed it sells itself as you progress. Well done.
Obrians stories are becoming an addiction that i look forward to indulging in all the way to the end of the series. And Patrick Tull ! The only narrator to do the books justice
Familiar style and content. Thoroughly enjoyable. Patrick Tull is, as usual, magnificently well suited to the material and performs wonderfully.
Having enjoyed the previous books of the series, I can hearthily recommend this book to anyone who did the same.

The fact that the major events of this story occurred in real life is great. Life the first book you will find yourself wondering how in the world they actually pulled this off. And if you made it this far into the series you are a fan. Hooked for life (because thats how long it will take you to read all these books too...)
Master and Commander
Yes O'Brian's dry humor and deft dialogue can be listened to over and over.
Actually Jack because he is not super man but a man with many more weaknesses then strengths. Not at all like the heros of today's books.
He is simply the finest narrator possible for this series. I had the misfortune of listening to one of the series wo him and lasted only 2 chapters.
Everyone that would like to visit early 1800 should read or listen to one of this series or all
That Jack Aubrey got a great prize that fixed his money problem
Narrator could be heard turning pages etc
