Descrizione prodotto

Recensione

'… full of the energy that comes from a writer having struck a vein… Patrick O'Brian is unquestionably the Homer of the Napoleonic wars.' James Hamilton-Paterson

'You are in for the treat of your lives. Thank God for Patrick O'Brian: his genius illuminates the literature of the English language, and lightens the lives of those who read him.' Kevin Meyers, Irish Times

'In a highly competitive field it goes straight to the top. A real first-rater.' Mary Renault

'I never enjoyed a novel about the sea more. It is not only that the author describes the handling of a ship of 1800 with an accuracy that is as comprehensible as it is detailed, a remarkable feat in itself. Mr O'Brian's three chief characters are drawn with no less sympathy that the vessels he describes, a rare achievement save in the greatest of writers of this genre. It deserves the widest readership.' Irish Times

Sinossi

Patrick O’Brian’s Aubrey-Maturin tales are widely acknowledged to be the greatest series of historical novels ever written. Now, for the first time, they are available in electronic book format, so a whole new generation of readers can be swept away on the adventure of a lifetime. This is the seventeenth book in the series.

Jack Aubrey’s long service is at last rewarded: he is promoted to the rank of Commodore and given a squadron of ships to command. His mission is twofold – to make a large dent in the slave trade off the coast of Africa and, on his return, to intercept a French fleet set for Bantry Bay with a cargo of weapons for the disaffected among the Irish. Invention and surprise follow at every turn in this tale of nineteenth-century seamanship, as rich, as compelling, as masterly as any of its predecessors.

I am not going to waste your time by gushing about how wonderful Patrick O'Brian is. I'm willing to bet the vast majority of reviews before and after this one are going to do that for me.

Instead, I'll just mention that this novel works wonderfully well as a standalone work. Exposition, explanation and backstory are handled masterfully (not always the case in this series) and the wealth of scenes, characters and action absorb the reader immediately into a rich, varied, uncertain and, above all, authentic Regency world. Strangely, it is also this randomly chosen novel that had me scrabbling through bookstores to find 'Master and Commander', in order to begin one of the most continuously satisfying literary experiences of my entire life.

For long time fans of the series this, like many of the later instalments, is relatively short, but is nevertheless jam-packed with satisfyingly characteristic moments from some of our favourite denizens of the Aubrey/Maturin universe.

A standout entry in an outstanding series.

If you've gotten this far in the series you'll surely enjoy this book. Although I enjoy the interactions between the main characters independent of location, I specifically appreciate the sea-faring parts. In this sense this is a good installment. I did enjoy the final battle and the suspense leading up to it.

If you're new to Aubrey/Maturin you should start elsewhere. Although the serie does not necessarily have to be read in chrono order, this book is really the beginning of the end and should be saved for reading as one of the last.
