Master and Commander

Aubrey/Maturin Series, Book 1

 

You’re probably better off reading my review of the sequel, Post Captain, which I wrote soon after reading it. I read Master and Commander a little before I started reviewing, and this second reading was too close to my original for me to relish it. But I do recall loving it the first time around.
