    All I can say is WOW

    Post Captian is one of O'Brian's greatest books. I had to tear myself away from it last Sunday, so I could go to bed. It has something for everyone from action to friendship to romance. However, I do think the government of England has been a bit unfair to Jack. I mean they are making him pay even thousand pounds for the late Sophie and he was doing everything he could to keep it out of enemy hands. Now, I certainly hope no one makes him pay for what happened to the Polychrest. For one thing, that was not a very good ship, and for another, he ahd managed to take the Faciulla as a prize. I hope I get the chance to read more of the Aubrey Maturin Novels for school.

    A good turn...

    This, the second installment in the Aubrey-Maturin series, delves deeper into its main charcters' attributes and personal lives. As ever, O'Brian brings his literary protagonists to life with a zeal that does not diminish the novel's historical accuracy in any manner. You learn to love Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin again, and grow to hate others. And though I am no fan of romance in novels, I developed such sympathy for O'Brian's people that I could not look away from the print; an excellent turn on Mr. O'Brian's part, indeed.

    Can you create a unicorn by longing?  Book two of the Aubrey/Mat

    Can you create a unicorn by longing? 
    Book two of the Aubrey/Maturin series. I have a feeling this series will stand up forever. It’s just so well done, from the research, to the authenticity, to the classiness of the writing itself. It’s charming and beautiful and a hell of a pleasure to read. The relationship between Jack and Stephen is still my favorite thing and continues to delight me. This is a wonderful series, O’Brian has recreated a real living and breathing world and I’m reading it slow because I don’t want it to end.

    Great Stuff. You taste salt water.

    Second time around for Patrick O'Brian,s Aubrey/Maturin series. Enjoying it even more this time. Each book is a giant chapter. Every one stands on its own. A great read.
