I'd recommend this book to anyone who loves tales of the sea or adventure in general.
The tenth volume in O'Brian's wonderfully intelligent nautical series finds Captain Aubrey and Stephen Maturin in Gibraltar, still aboard the Surprise.
It is also by far the best written of the series to date (that is, the best of the first ten books, for I have yet to read the following volumes).
There isn't much point in rating individual books out of the twenty that O'Brian wrote. The series is one of the great achievements of twentieth century literature. Read morePublished 14 days ago by BJ Giles
