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

"... comic, grim, farcical, and tragic. An essential of the truly gripping book for the narrative addict is the creation of a whole, solidly living world for the imagination to inhabit, and O'Brian does this with prodigal specificity and generosity." (A.S. Byatt)
I thought I had the unabridged edition with Patrick Tull reading. I did not. I would recomend getting the unabridged version. This reader does a poor job with the different accents and voices, he makes all the characters sound shallow and in many cases too young. Part of the shallows ness could be that alot of the detail is left out in the abbridged version. At any rate get the unabridged version of this book. I have not listened to the unabridged version yet, but now I will have to get it and listen to this story again. Very frustrating.
