Best-selling author Patrick O'Brian became a legend with his beloved Aubrey-Maturin seafaring tales. O'Brian received further attention with the critically acclaimed film adaptation, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, which was nominated for 10 Academy Awards and won two.

When O'Brian passed away in 2000, he left behind three chapters of what was to be the 21st Aubrey-Maturin novel. The tale was to have followed Jack Aubrey in his new post, Rear Admiral of the Blue Squadron. Showing his storytelling gift until the end, O'Brian did include a duel between Aubrey's trusted friend Stephen Maturin and an impertinent officer.

Although it remains unfinished, 21 gives us one final glance at the unparalleled genius of a master craftsman and the series The New York Times Book Review hailed as the best historical novels ever written.

    " It's too bad this book ended mid-sentence (due to author death). I think there were some very intriguing story lines developing. A fitting end, though, to a phenomenal series. "

    " Only sad that there's no more! I hope I write (and think!) that well when I'm 85! "

    " I absolutely loved this whole series, but I wish I hadn't read this. The idea of JA & SM being left stranded mid-ocean following the death of the author is heart breaking. "

    " "Finished" is a difficult term to apply. With only three typewritten chapters, and the last literally ending in the middle of a sentence, "stopped" is a more appropriate term. But it does provide a decent enough end to the series, with Jack Aubrey about to sail off to the South African station. The copies of O'Brian's handwritten notes were, for the most part, too hard to read, so I didn't go very far. The final sketch of HMS Surprise in mourning is touching. "
