What the Critics Say

"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)

    Story
    "O'Brian is a genius Tull is stupendous"
    Would you listen to The Mauritius Command again? Why?

    Yes O'Brian's dry humor and deft dialogue can be listened to over and over.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    What about Patrick Tull’s performance did you like?

    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.
