Description du produit
Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey-Maturin tales are widely acknowledged to be the greatest series of historical novels ever written. To commemorate the 40th anniversary of their beginning, with Master and Commander, these evocative stories are being re-issued in paperback with smart new livery. This is the thirteenth book in the series. For all Jack Aubrey's life he has triumphed, often sensationally, over the dangers of the sea and the violence of the enemy. But his rashness, his guilelessness, his indiscretion have time and time again enabled his rivals to prevent him reaping his just rewards. The nadir was reached in The Reverse of the Medal when, the victim of a skilful frame-up, he was convicted of fraud and struck off the Navy list just as he was coming within sight of flag rank. The subsequent exposure of the conspiracy, coupled with his brilliant success in command of a privateer, had brought him to a position where Their Lordships were more or less bound to reinstate him.This, as the present book opens, they have done, and he and his old friend Dr Maturin are sailing on a secret mission with a hand-picked crew, most of them shipmates from the adventures and lucrative voyages of earlier years.

The whole serie of 21 novels relating the adventures of Jack Aubray end Stephen Maturin deserves a place of choice on the bookshelves of any reader who delights in well written fiction, where the characters have some relief and subtlety, the situations they find themselves are diverse and keep you turning the pages late at night, the descriptions of the scenes, of the society, and of the thoughts and feelings of the heroes are finely chiseled and highly credible. The covers of this edition are details of marine paintings by Geoff Hunt and are beautiful too.

... should be required reading for anyone who loves a great story with compelling characters
21 février 2018 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Every Patrick O'Brien novel - especially all of the Aubrey Maturin series - should be required reading for anyone who loves a great story with compelling characters, adventure, suspense and just the slightest touch of romance. Add to that that they are steeped in actual history - based on the logbooks of the RN captains who sailed in the era about which he writes - these are history lessons in the most entertaining form imaginable. Highest recommendation i could possibly give.
Parts are familiar but there are new twists
6 octobre 2014 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Another story limited in calendar length with a lot of color for the reader. I think it's a good story, although parts are familiar to the readers of all of the previous books. To be sure, O'Brian inserts new twists and certainly leaves the reader with a spectacular cliff hanger at the end. As usual, the characters and the action are worth reading. I learned more about the Malaysian geopolitical situation of the era. There is little that happens at sea and there are long passages of the at sea portion of the book that, in reality, are meaningless and seem designed to lengthen the overall story. The treachery that occurs on land is worthy of any spy novel of any era. Overall, I'm glad I read it. I really like the characters, the plots and the storytelling devised by Patrick O'Brian in this series. I like it so much I'm reading the entire series for the second time. I recommend it.
Wonderful naval stories - a great, quick read.
9 décembre 2016 - Publié sur Amazon.com
O'Brian puts the reader directly in the times of a British Naval officer and the voyages and actions encountered. The battle scenes are exciting as are the vivid descriptions of weather encountered under sail (storms and calms). An aspect of the writing and story lines in the Aubrey/Maturin series I love is the placing of the characters in actual historic scenarios. Its been fun to look up the ships and battles. For non-sailors, there may be ships terms used that are not understood (e.g., cathead, cross-trees) and some descriptions of the positioning of ships prior to engaging in battle (e.g., gaining weather gage), which add to a sailors reading enjoyment, but for others just read through and enjoy the content! Plenty in these books to keep you turning pages!

I have read every book in this series so far. None have disappointed me. I feel like I know these men and I enjoy their successes and I distress at their loses. Fortunately, this one was about successes.

This is about the 13th in the series that I have been reading back-to-back and they just keep getting better. Between the dialogue and the descriptions you are actually there. As best I can I like to supplement my reading with searching out the geography on Google Earth and looking up some of the more arcane terminology.
