Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Patrick O'Brian's 20-volume epic of naval tales — echoing the work of such master writers as Joseph Conrad, Herman Melville, and Jane Austen — brings to life the exploits of the British navy during the Napoleonic Wars. From the excitement of the chases, storms, and battles to the authenticity of language, humor, and the wealth of detail — down to the last button and turn of phrase — old and new readers will share the exciting adventure of O'Brian's early-nineteenth-century world.

Life ashore — characterized by feuds with Parliament, his wife, and a neighbor, an unsuccessful exploit at sea, and worst of all peace — threatens Captain Jack Aubrey's undoing.

Synopsis:

Unabridged. 8 CDs. With the outbreak of peace in 1814, Captain Jack Aubrey fears he is doomed to life on shore, not his strongest suit. But just in time, an urgent dispatch orders him to Gibraltar: Napoleon has escaped from Elba.
