from? an exceptionally talented narrator and an exceptional writer.

I was captivated by both. The narrator, Robert Hardy, is a master of voices and brings the entire cast to life. The author, Patrick O’Brian, is a master of prose.

The book is the first in the Aubrey-Maturin series, which is set during the Napoleonic Wars. The story follows the career of Captain Jack Aubrey and his friend, ship’s surgeon Stephen Maturin.

The book is rich in detail and atmosphere. The characters are richly drawn and the story is compelling.

I highly recommend both the book and the audiobook.

The most prominent character in the series is Jack Aubrey, a fictional British Royal Navy captain. The series is set during the Napoleonic Wars and follows Aubrey’s career as he rises in rank from lieutenant to rear admiral.

Other major characters include Dr. Stephen Maturin, Aubrey’s friend and ship’s surgeon, and William Reade, Aubrey’s coxswain.
