4.0 étoiles sur 5 A beautifully executed collection 1 janvier 2017
Par Alex Craig - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I bought this boxed set a few years back, having previously read library copies of the novels. I just took it out to reread the series, and I feel impelled to comment on the production. The twenty novels in the series are divided among five volumes, with an average length of 1300 pages. The books are beautifully designed to be both legible and comfortable to hold. They are a bit shorter and narrower than the standard hardback. The typeface is small but legibly spaced. The paper is very thin but entirely opaque. The cloth covers are a beautiful nautical blue, and the sewn-in red ribbon bookmarks are a nice touch. The dust jackets feature a photo of the author on the front, and the spines combine to produce an attractive painting of Jack Aubrey's four principal ships. It's rare to see such care in book design today, and it is appreciated by us dinosaurs who find pleasure in holding and reading a beautiful book.
It's of course unnecessary to recommend these wonderful novels, with their adroit mixture of hair-raising action, meticulously researched detail, well-rounded characters, and witty, elegant writing. Save up your pennies and enjoy!

I'm lowering my rating from five stars to four after experiencing the editing problems described by other reviewers. But proofreading is becoming a lost art these days, isn't it?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 ... books goes down as one of the all time great literature classics 7 février 2015
Par Pete D - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This volume of books goes down as one of the all time great literature classics. I read the first book on a whim after seeing it in a used book store and having liked the Master and Commander movie. From that point on I read the entire series and could not put them down. O'Brian makes you feel you are living in Aubrey's world, on the ship with him and sailing the high seas. One gets to know Aubrey and Maturin intimately and by the end of the series, you are longing for more O'Brian. I was actually sad when I finished because there was no more story to read. As a military officer myself, I was surprised to find good, realistic lessons in leadership throughout the series. As a history buff, the fine historical detail of seamanship, naval warfare and life on a 19th century war Naval vessel is unbelievable. If you like tales of the sea, ocean and sailing this swashbuckling adventure is for you. Likewise, Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guardsmen will also especially enjoy O'Brian's masterpiece of the Royal Navy during the19th Century Napoleonic era. From time to time I run into unexpected people that have read O'Brian's work, it is like a small fraternity, and we all seem to have shared the same impression and viewpoint of how great these novels are.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Great novels in a fine format, but BEWARE OF BAD EDITING 24 décembre 2004
Par R L Rodolfo-Sioson - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Ardent fans of Patrick O'Brian know that he is one of the best kept secrets of English literature. His ability to project the complex, at times contradictory inner life of his characters -- and Aubrey and Maturin are certainly among the most fascinating ever to be inked upon paper -- allow this 20-novel cycle to transcend the usual narrow focus of the Traditional Sea Novel. O'Brian is not content with narratives merely devoted to warfare or adventure (although there's plenty to be had here): he also delights in portraying the conventions of English society, the developments in early 19th-century science (through Maturin's incessant experimentation), and various scenes of amateur music-making.

An omnibus edition of the series is a welcome notion, given the shelf space required by 20 volumes (even in paperback)! While I am no connoisseur of typefaces, the font used in re-setting the text is 'cleaner' and more attractive than the one used previously -- which is extremely important if you plan to traverse the 6500-plus pages of the omnibus edition!

But I have a major reservation with Norton's omnibus edition: there is little evidence that the publishers bothered to proofread their newly re-set text. Not only are there the usual, minor misspellings (like 'sorpething' instead of 'something'), but some far more problematic ones -- the kind that leave you with the nagging feeling: "surely O'Brian didn't write that." My favorite (so far) is in Book Two (Post Captain), which describes Canning's "great delighted laugh, a crowing noise that rose from a deep ass..." (see page 738). Checking the text of the previous hardback and paperback edition confirmed that O'Brian referred to Canning's vocal range ("bass"), not his nether regions.

Another serious problem with the omnibus text is the recurring omission of paragraph breaks used to mark alternating voices. Including more than one speaker within the same paragraph makes for some very confusing, even misleading passages. One should know that Norton's previous editions laid out the dialogue much more clearly (and consistently).

So, in a certain sense, this new edition is probably not the best introduction to O'Brian's multi-volume masterpiece. Newcomers should, if possible, go back to the previous edition which, after all, is still in print. Cheaper too, if you don't mind getting paperbacks.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Close, but not perfect 1 octobre 2015
Par Eric O Montague - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Amazing collection to have all the volumes in one set and in chronologically arranged. The type set is not perfect however, many letters are set as numbers and many times other tour set errors missed the proof. Overall a great buy, but not archive nor library quality. Perhaps the next edition will be corrected.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Great stories, very poor quality 2 mars 2010
Par Alexia Smith - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
While the books of Patrick O'Brian are fantastic reads, this collections suffers greatly from several shortcomings.
1) They are simply poor quality. The paper is very thin and for hardcover volumes the boards are thin and flimsy. I expect these were cost-cutting measures by the publisher, but I still expect more for the purchase price.
2) There are too many type setting/copy editing/printing errors. While it is difficult to produce a single book without any printing errors, never mind 20 books, I find this collection to be extremely poorly copy edited/printed. In any given book there are usually upwards of 30 errors, and the number tends to increase as you work through the series. These usually take the form of gross misspellings or incorrect punctuation. While 30 some odd errors over 200-300 pages may not seem like much, I find it excessive and these certainly detract from the enjoyment of what are great stories.
So I find this collection to be poorly edited and produced.
