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)

    "So well done"

    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.

    "The early stages of an addiction"

    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

    "Excellent continuation of the series"

    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.

    Story
    "Unbelievable Story Based on a Real Life Event"
    Would you listen to The Mauritius Command again? Why?

    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...)


    What other book might you compare The Mauritius Command to and why?

    Master and Commander

    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.
