Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Forester's saga about the fictional British naval hero of the Napoleonic Wars, Horatio Hornblower, has long been popular and is likely soon to become even more so--thanks to a lavish British miniseries headed to the United States. With intelligent, carefully crafted plots and riveting action, all 11 Hornblower novels make ideal audiobooks, and Flying Colours (1938) is no exception--especially with Christian Rodska's able reading. Its story immediately follows Ship of the Line, which ends with Hornblower disabling four enemy ships and surrendering his own wrecked ship to the French in a Spanish port. While Hornblower and his crippled first lieutenant are taken overland to Paris for trial and almost certain execution, they stage a daring escape. However, Hornblower is torn by the knowledge that even if he returns to England, he faces court-martial and may be executed anyway for surrendering his ship. Though set mostly on land, this novel never lacks for excitement, and its conclusion may be the most gratifying of any in the Hornblower series.-Kent Rasmussen, Thousand Oaks, CA

    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!!!
