    " This was very good, especially after having read "the Endeavor." (another terrific book, with amazing pictures). "

    " O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin British sea adventures are great reads. O'Brian sets a fast past and the reader is quickly drawn into the story and the characters who are involved. This particular story involves a sea chase between two warring ships, with Captain Aubrey's ship at a considerable disadvantage.Aubrey ship is disabled and he and his crew eventually have to take refuge on a small, cold island in the Antarctic Ocean where they have to put the ship back into sailing order again. O'Brian information on the "tall sailing ships" and the historical circumstances of competition on the seas during the Napoleonic Wars is considered to be excellent. "

    " I loved it. Oh how I wish I could go sailing for a few months with Captain Aubrey and Dr. Maturin. Which is quite remarkable, since up to a few short months ago I never thought twice about sailing ships. "

    " Once again, I'm more interested in the people than the naval action but still loved this. Jack is bewilderingly misogynistic and Stephen is bewilderingly besotted by someone who doesn't seem to have any redeemable features. So, pretty much business as usual. "
