Kent started out ok, but the last 15 or so books of his are just awful. Yes I did read them religiously, but it is getting harder. Kent is turning into some sort of 'like, gag me with a spoon' vomit-fed Danielle Steel. These novels are becoming unbearable. The pity is that he's becoming just as prolific as Steel. Someone save us! I'm Surprised that Steel novels don't pop up in the 'other people also bought' category. Granted they aren't having earth-shattering sex while ship-wrecked on some deserted island, but his characters are so overly-burdened with emotion it is amazing that we the reader can even see the ship through all this emotional fog. And can he please, please, please stop ending every other paragraph with 'It was enough.' And is Bolitho alone? Or is he not alone? Is it enough? Certianly for me it is. Save your money. Sorry Mr. Kent, but please spare us. Bolitho needs to stop sailing and see a shrink. Or perhaps you do? If you're worried about having an incomplete library... I think you'll be better off saving yourself the embarrassment.

If you are interested in fictional/historical accounts of the British Navy's involvement in the Napoleonic, American Revolutinary and post-Revolutionary wars, then Alexander Kent's Bolitho series is a cannot miss.

It is unfortunate. Sometimes a series goes on too long. The earlier works by Mr. Kent were excellent; but the more recent books seem tired and lack the verve and excitement that characterized his earlier fiction.
