    Great book, but poorly served

    This is the third of the classic "Captain Horatio Hornblower" trilogy. It isa marvelous story, and deepens the familier characters, and intoduces wonderful new characters. The book should have 5 stars, but the inexplicable absence of the other two books of the trilogy for Nook users. Get the books for the Nook now!!!
