Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sara | 2/3/2014

    " Burke sent this to me as a gift and I did not enjoy it but finished it because i felt obligated to! Ships of the line and Napoleonic era naval warfare are my favorite topics but this book was poorly written with foul language and characters I couldn't care for. For that much cursing I'll go to my local cinema... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nate | 1/30/2014

    " Not as good as a Patrick O'Brian novel, but thoroughly enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aspen Junge | 12/27/2013

    " I read the entire series largely back-to-back (my local public library is well-stocked). One of the great things about this series is that we get to watch Alan Lewrie, the main character, grow up from a callow, self-indulgent teenager to a mature, thoughtful, and responsible adult. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joel Fair | 12/25/2013

    " Enjoyed this book and look forward to catching up with the rest of a long series. Loved Lewrie as the rogue hero. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Conrad Luhmann | 11/23/2013

    " I thought the book was a very good read. It led me to try to go through the series in sequence "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 11/10/2013

    " Enjoyed this a great deal. A bit more to it than either the Hornblower or Ramage characters. Lewrie isn't the same paladin as the other two. Makes for a more interesting looks "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen | 11/8/2013

    " Love this guy - think Flashman crossed with Hornblower! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Camille | 11/6/2013

    " Very George MacDonald Fraser. Flashman goes to sea. John Lee narration of the audiobook is very enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Williams | 10/21/2013

    " A good naval adventure in the Horatio Hornblower tradition with considerably more baudy scenes. I had already read the first 25 Bolitho adventures and part of the Lord Ramage Series and was looking for something knew. I would recommend this only to fans of naval fiction "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel | 4/23/2013

    " We love all the Alan Lewrie books. We are truck drivers and have purchased books 1-11 so far and can't wait for more to be put on audiobooks. We also have listened to other narrators but JOHN LEE IS THE BEST. We love his style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Callaway | 1/27/2013

    " It's like a cross between Horatio Hornblower and Flashman. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Frances | 6/24/2012

    " Don't know how to get rid of this. I never read it or even heard of it. It just appeared! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 happy | 1/12/2012

    " entertaining read, but a little bawdy at times. The series as a whole is very up and down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William | 5/27/2011

    " Never heard of Lambdin or Alan Lewrie before but I am going to read one or two of this series every year. Just a fun read. Certainly more fun than Hornblower or Aubrey. Alan is a rogue and there is good action at sea and ashore. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Randy | 3/6/2011

    " Very much like the Patrick O'Brien, Alexander Kent, or C.S Forester navel novels. Except there's sex in there... quite a bit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miguel | 1/30/2011

    " A great book about sailors world. I liked the main character and like he changes its personality. "
