Description

"Every [Aubrey-Maturin] book is packed to absolute straining with erudition, wit, history, and thunderous action." —Joe Hill


Stranded in Malta, Captain Jack Aubrey and surgeon Stephen Maturin must be careful, for the salons and dockyards are infested with Napoleon's spies, and there is a traitor in the British intelligence network. This installment of Patrick O'Brian's "20-volume masterpiece" (Christopher Hitchens) takes Aubrey and Maturin sailing on the pirate-plagued waters of the Red Sea, trudging over the Sinai Peninsula and even the depths of the sea floor in their efforts to stay one step ahead of the treachery afoot.

reviews
      • premium: False
      • source: A. S. Byatt
      • content: O'Brian's narrative...provides endlessly varying shocks and surprises—comic, grim, farcical and tragic. An essential of the truly gripping book for the narrative addict is the creation of a whole, solidly living world for the imagination to inhabit, and O'Brian does this with prodigal specificity and generosity.
      • premium: False
      • source: Ken Ringle;Washington Post
      • content: The Aubrey-Maturin series . . . far beyond any episodic chronicle, ebbs and flows with the timeless tide of character and the human heart.
      • premium: False
      • source: Stephen Becker;Chicago Sun-Times
      • content: There is not a writer alive whose work I value over his.
      • premium: False
      • source: Tamar Lewin;New York Times
      • content: It has been something of a shock to find myself—an inveterate reader of girl books—obsessed with Patrick O'Brian's Napoleonic-era historical novels. . . . What keeps me hooked are the evolving relationships between Jack and Stephen and the women they love.
      • premium: False
      • source: George Will
      • content: O'Brian's Aubrey-Maturin volumes actually constitute a single 6,443-page novel, one that should have been on those lists of the greatest novels of the 20th century.
      • premium: False
      • source: E. O. Wilson;Boston Globe
      • content: I haven't read novels [in the past ten years] except for all of the Patrick O'Brian series. It was, unfortunately, like tripping on heroin. I started on those books and couldn't stop.
      • premium: False
      • source: Christopher Hitchens;Slate
      • content: I devoured Patrick O'Brian's 20-volume masterpiece as if it had been so many tots of Jamaica grog.
      • premium: False
      • source: James Hamilton-Paterson;New Republic
      • content: Patrick O'Brian is unquestionably the Homer of the Napoleonic wars.
      • premium: False
      • source: Richard Snow;New York Times Book Review
      • content: The best historical novels ever written. . . . On every page Mr. O'Brian reminds us with subtle artistry of the most important of all historical lessons: that times change but people don't, that the griefs and follies and victories of the men and women who were here before us are in fact the maps of our own lives.
      • premium: False
      • source: David Mamet;New York Times
      • content: [O'Brian's] Aubrey-Maturin series, 20 novels of the Royal Navy in the Napoleonic Wars, is a masterpiece. It will outlive most of today's putative literary gems as Sherlock Holmes has outlived Bulwer-Lytton, as Mark Twain has outlived Charles Reade.
      • premium: False
      • source: Keith Richards
      • content: I fell in love with his writing straightaway, at first with Master and Commander. It wasn't primarily the Nelson and Napoleonic period, more the human relationships. . . . And of course having characters isolated in the middle of the goddamn sea gives more scope. . . . It's about friendship, camaraderie. Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin always remind me a bit of Mick and me.

        October 2, 2000
        This novel, the ninth installment of 20 in what is certainly the greatest series about the British Navy ever written--indeed, one of the most successful of its magnitude ever written in any genre--is not well served by its reader. Royal Shakespeare Company and National Theatre actor Pigott-Smith has an appropriately English accent, but his characters' voices lack consistency and sensitivity to the subtleties of O'Brian's pen. In this recording, the swashbuckling Captain Aubrey and the ironic, stealthy Stephen Maturin, his ship's surgeon, do not step onto the stage of the Napoleonic wars as the nuanced heroes O'Brian's readers have come to know over three decades. Pigott-Smith's Maturin lacks compassion; his Aubrey lacks intelligence. The narrative turns from nefarious intrigues in Malta to an amazing mission in the Red Sea and back again, but the drama is conveyed with neither satisfying variation of tempo nor ringing cadence. While O'Brian's devotees will find all the naval and historical details they usually delight in, they will despair at hearing how this production tramples upon his genius in portraying shockingly real characters in an utterly foreign, far-off time. Based on the Norton hardcover.
