    " Forester got better and better with every Hornblower book. I liked this one the best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matthew Rushing | 1/18/2014

    " Good solid adventure and interesting character advancement. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jarkko | 12/20/2013

    " It feels a tad slower on character and story development compared to the first two books (in chronological order) but it is still a joyful read. My compliments to Mr. Forester and I plan to continue reading the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 12/1/2013

    " There are no places as briney and dark as a captain's heart "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lizzy | 11/26/2013

    " I was excited that this book gave Horatio his first command! Knowing nothing about blockading going in, I was fascinated that many seamen spent their entire careers in this long service. It was wonderfully enjoyable to try to guess what Horatio would do in each skirmish, and I was wrong and surprised every time! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cole | 11/18/2013

    " Gene Roddenberry based Star Trek off the adventures of Horatio Hornblower, nuf said. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 10/22/2013

    " Great reading. Makes you feel like your at sea. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caleb | 7/8/2013

    " Ripping good read :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eugenides | 6/19/2010

    " Fabulous as usual. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pablo Martinez | 6/7/2010

    " A very good book. With Hornblower in command we see great action from his little ship. Beware of the many naval terms that you'll probably have to go look up to really appreciate the battles. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn | 9/25/2009

    " 19th century British manners at Sea! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth S | 10/15/2004

    " 3 1/2 stars. Good sea battles. Definitely some moral dilemmas. Some had solutions, and some didn't. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aaron | 4/6/2004

    " I liked it. Broadsides, mainmasts, topsails, leftenants, etc. Hornblower's personality is different than it was in the television miniseries. He is less likable in the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Valerie L | 5/16/2003

    " If I was really into sailing - and all that happened on a ship at sea I think I would have enjoyed it much much more. Otherwise, I couldn't get into it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina Dudley | 7/31/2002

    " Another delightful Hornblower book. Love how Forester combines great characters, novel situations, and adventure, without any dull passages about which sail does what. Maria and Hornblower's mother-in-law were especial treats. Oh, Horry! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 R.L. | 5/31/2002

    " Another good read. Really good pacing, plot, character development and naval atmosphere. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn | 5/31/2001

    " Of course I still love Horatio, but I have to say he was kind of on the grumpy side in this book. I just wish I understood more of the technical details of sailing that C.S. Forester so meticulously incorporates. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Russell Emmons | 5/15/2001

    " An awesome continuation of the Hornblower Saga. Navy lovers, adventure lovers, book lovers, you all should read this. Start at the first book if you have not read them however. "
