I LOVE this book, having read it in hard copy. But this edition is a formatting MESS! Odd random characters, hit or miss sizing... A disaster. Try a paid Nook edition! Had to give only one star because of this edition.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! At times, the satire approached being Swiftian. The writer was very skilled at demonstrating the silliness that motivates folk who are so serious about everything. "Our hero," as Marryat refers to him, is a scamp and why he hasn't been killed by angry officers, governors, fathers of sweet young things, and/or pirates is a mystery. Truly, Mr. Midshipman Easy lives a charmed life. After a time, I was wondering "What will he do next?" I am a great fan of sea=faring yarns and have read most of the popular books in the genre. The sea faring here is just a vehicle. This is a very old book that is new in its pacing. A light and quick read.

Reading this book is hardly neccessary. Simply flip through the pages to the illustrations where all of the text truly comes to life. Mr. Polseno rocks my world.
