Still very interesting and informative reading by one of the best noted historical fiction writers. This is one of a series on the English Navy during the war with Napoleon. A classic in itself but better if read as one of the series.

#12 in the series of sea adventures of Capt Jack Aubrey and Stephan Maturin known to all from the movie Master and Commander.

Lucky Jack Aubrey is back (as compared to the unlucky Jack Aubrey of the last few books), as a Captain of a privateer, he uses his daring and pluck to win prize after prize.

Stephen Maturin is up to his usual hijinks as a quirky naturalist, and his "weaknesses".

Triggers: There is some violence, it's a war book after all. Also some "recreational" drug use.

I read this book quicky, reminding myself how fortunate I feel to take all the little simple things for granted. Woman want to have their babies delivered at home, and that;s what the fight for.
