    "A Good Book for Young Adults."

    I have read most of Patrick O'Brian's books and absolutely loved them. Upon reading this one, however, I found that I could not relate to any of the characters within. Maybe I am too old for this particular book! It would be a good book for young people as Patrick O'Brian's command of english is so good that it would be an advantage for youngsters to read it!
