Master and Commander

Aubrey/Maturin: Book #1
By Patrick O'Brian
Narrated by Patrick Tull / 16 hours 46 minutes
Bookseller Recommendation

Master and Commander

“For so long I've looked forward to trying Patrick O'Brian's famous tales of the British Navy during the Napoleonic Wars, and I'm glad I finally did so via Patrick Tull's utterly delightful audio rendition. The novel itself (the first of twenty (!) in the series featuring captain Jack Aubrey and ship's surgeon Stephen Maturin) is full of superb character studies as well as a density of period language and absurdly detailed seamanship that's even more delicious to consume than I expected, all of which are matched by Tull's wonderfully dramatic impersonations, true to person, to naval lingo, and to the variety of accents onboard. Reef the topsails, Mr. Marshall! Set the topgallants! Mr. Pullings, fire as they bear!”

It is the dawn of the nineteenth century; Britain is at war with Napoleon's France. Jack Aubrey, a young lieutenant in Nelson's navy, is promoted to command of H.M.S. Sophie?, an old, slow brig unlikely to make his fortune. But Captain Aubrey is a brave and gifted seaman, his thirst for adventure and victory immense. With the aid of his friend Stephen Maturin, ship's surgeon and secret intelligence agent, Aubrey and his crew engage in one thrilling battle after another, their journey culminating in a stunning clash with a mighty Spanish frigate against whose guns and manpower the tiny Sophie is hopelessly outmatched.
