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 Myers, 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 depth of sympathy than the vessels he describes, a rare achievement save in the greatest 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 sixteenth book in the series.

At the opening of a voyage filled with disaster and delight, Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin are in pursuit of a privateer sailing under American colours through the Great South Sea. Stephen’s objective is to set the revolutionary tinder of South America ablaze to relieve the pressure on the British government which has blundered into war with the young and uncomfortably vigorous United States. The shock and barbarity of hand-to-hand fighting are sharpened by O’Brian’s exact sense of period, his eye for landscape and his feel for a ship under sail.

3.0 su 5 stelle Volcanoes, travel in the Andes, icebergs 17 ottobre 2014
Di Kevin - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Good lengthy account of travelling through the Peruvian Andes which takes away from the nautical in nautical fiction. Another account of getting caught in the ice during fog around Cape Horn. Another loss of a rudder in the southern latitudes and another sea battle that almost happened. There were two sea battles actually; an incredibly easy one in the beginning and an incredibly non-existent one near the end. This book felt mostly like it was just another in a series of filler material. As I always say, the writing is excellent and it shows such an incredible amount of research necessary to tell the story in such detail. I have to admit to tiring of the perpetual filler material in each of the last three books. I hope O'Brian gets back to writing nautical adventures in this series. This is another book you could easily live without in this series if you so chose.

The continuing adventures of Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin is nothing short of irresistible, dynamic pleasure. Storms, prizes, enemy vessels and spies, you'll inhale this installment of our favorite sailing duo.
5.0 su 5 stelle The best series even written 6 dicembre 2014
Di Jane H - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
One has to be a lover of Patrick O'Brian to appreciate Book 16 of this sea-going, Napoleonic War series. If you are on Book 16, you already know what I mean. It is wonderful, adventurous, humorous and a definite page turner. You will never read novels as well written as O'Brian's works. If you haven't read any of the Aubrey/Maturin novels, you must begin at the beginning with "Master and Commander". Sit back and enjoy these great tales for months, even years to come.
Hint: Don't get upset if you don't understand the operation of the ship, with it's rigging and sails and masts. The reader doesn't have to most of the time. Just be amazed that Mr. O'Brian understood it all. Perhaps by Book 10 you will comprehend it better.
5.0 su 5 stelle More complex than many 22 aprile 2016
Di Russ - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

For those who love earlier volumes of this series, volumes 14 through 16 taken together are a complex and multi- skein series of threads that contribute vey well to the whole enterprise of Aubrey as Brittania, with all his narrowness and dogmatism, and all his spirit power and courage. There was a reason that Great Britain was The Empire in the 19th century, and Patrick O'Brian, God, Mary and Patrick be with him, expresses the strength of the British at sea exceptionally well.
5.0 su 5 stelle Truly Wonderful Books 24 giugno 2014
Di Robert Knotts - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
These novels are the best of breed, bar none. If you've read the first and haven't read every single one of the series...well, I'll never love you, nor will any of the other thousands and thousands of fans. As a blue water sailor, I join the legions of other sailors who revere these books. It's all about those who "go down to the sea in ships", but with cannons and cutlasses. But if you're not a sailor you will nevertheless less love these books because they create unforgettable characters who complexly evolve as the books move along in what is a continuing story full of danger, mystery, love, despair, honor- dishonor, failure and Phoenix-like success. Read these, you won't be sorry.
