    " I think this is probably the shortest of the Hornblower novels, at only about 155 pages. Still, it's more than enough time for Horatio to expound meaningfully and at length about his Emo Man-Pain. Before I met Horatio - or at least, the book version of him - I did not think it was possible for someone born in the eighteenth century to have Emo Man-Pain. And yet he manages it with aplomb. I consistently want to smack him for his attitude towards Maria, and even more so for his attitude towards Lady Barbara, who is supposedly the love of his life. Never is it more plain than in this book just why the producers of the Hornblower miniseries felt it necessary to add the character of Archie Kennedy; without Archie's influence, Horatio really is insufferable. "

    " A good ending to the three book (Beat to Quarters / Ship of the Line / Flying Colours) saga; however, Hornblower's constant self-doubt is becoming tiresome... "

    " In the continuing saga of Captain Horatio Hornblower (this is #8) we find Hornblower taken prisoner-of-war by the French. He is on his way to Paris, along with a wounded Bush and coxswain Brown, to be tried on trumped up charges (violations of the laws of war) and to be executed by Napoleon as part of a plan to rally the war weary French. The three escape and end up in a friendly-peopled chateau to wait out the winter and continue their way back to England. This book takes place primarily on land which is a change-of-pace from previous books. Constantly on his mind is his upcoming court-martial, if and when he returns to England, for surrendering his ship the Sutherland. And there is always his pregnant wife and widowed lover to occupy his mind as well as the Lady of the chateau, Marie. This was a fast read and one of the better Hornblower novels. "
