As with all of the Aubrey Maturin series, I finished this and was hungry for the next. I devoted most of a year reading the whole series and wish it could have gone on and on.

Well I picked up the next book (#3) without hesitation after reading this one. This second book is clearly laying the groundwork for the future of the story. Aubrey and Maturin find love interests and get themselves into some pickles. There's a bit of sailing as well, plus exercising of the great guns and a fine cutting-out adventure or two.

The second in the phenomenal series of books by O'Brian. A wonderful report of Captain Aubrey on land and at sea. This book sets the stage for so many of the future adventures. The book stands alone, but is also essential to those who are embarking on the series. Careful, O'Brian and his Maturin/Aubrey books are addicting.
Fantastic reading and wonderful history!

My second reading was as enjoyable as the first. Wonderful novel of how life was aboard a British naval ship in the late 18th century
