Description
It is the dawn of the nineteenth century; Britain is at war with Napoleon's France. Jack Aubrey, a young lieutenant in Nelson's navy, is promoted to command of H.M.S. Sophie?, an old, slow brig unlikely to make his fortune. But Captain Aubrey is a brave and gifted seaman, his thirst for adventure and victory immense. With the aid of his friend Stephen Maturin, ship's surgeon and secret intelligence agent, Aubrey and his crew engage in one thrilling battle after another, their journey culminating in a stunning clash with a mighty Spanish frigate against whose guns and manpower the tiny Sophie is hopelessly outmatched.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: A big thumbs up to John Lee. Seldom has a book with such wonderful use of the language been captured so skillfully. This first of the Jack Aubrey novels, tales of a British sea captain and his ship's doctor, Stephen Maturin, sailing the seas during the Napoleonic Wars, is a great pleasure to listen to simply to let all that marvelous language wash over you as the exciting plot sweeps you away. These are great buddy books, great adventures, marvelously well told. Listening adds a special quality to these books. Much like the movie, the audio rollicks along, and you're never for a moment bogged down in obscure nautical terms you might feel a duty to look up if reading. O'Brian makes life aboard this microcosm totally believable, and John Lee delivers it with a crisp confidence worthy of stalwart naval disciple. D.G. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Companionship is certainly the key to happiness in life at sea. This first in O'Brian's series of Jack Aubrey novels introduces Dr. Stephen Maturin, intellectual foil to the captain's man of action. Earphones Awards winner Simon Vance juggles multiple characters, accents, and dramatic and comedic scenes with aplomb. Vance's warm, welcoming voice captures colorful characters, entertaining relationships, and not much plot. Readers in search of a handful of excellent companions with whom to spend many enjoyable hours will be hail and well met. R.O. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: This story, first published in 1970, inaugurated a sea adventure series set during the Napoleonic Wars which, like Forester's Hornblower books, has acquired a dedicated following. Exhaustive historical research and a writing style uncannily evocative of the early nineteenth century have earned the series critical praise as well. Richard Brown's British narration is earnest, limited in emotional range, proficient with nautical terms and conveys the somewhat wooden speech pattern of the story's historical period. This is also to say that this production takes getting used to but once one is accustomed to Brown's rhythms, the production takes on a fascinating life. S.K. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: This gem of a tale concerns an ambitious Royal Navy officer, Jack Aubrey, who is given command of his own vessel during the early stages of the struggle against Bonaparte. O'Brian, who is known for his historical detail, doesn't disappoint with this tale as the listener is treated to a lesson in early ninetenth-century naval history and to a superb tale, as well. Robert Hardy reads this abridgment with great skill. He displays his versatile voice in a performance that is clear and vivacious. Classical music, used as a transition between episodes, complements the reading. The major flaw is that some of the scenes do not flow well in the abridgment. M.T.F. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
