9780006136668: Post Captain

A historical story featuring Jack Aubrey and his friend Stephen Maturin. Their comfortable existence as country gentlemen is shattered as Jack is overnight reduced to a pauper. But after fleeing to France to escape debtors' prison, he finds himself hunted as Napoleon has ordered the internment of all Englishmen in France.

Review:

The year is 1803, and that scalliwag Napoleon Bonaparte has gone to war again. For Captain Jack Aubrey, who has fled to France to escape his creditors, this is doubly alarming news. In short order the captain is interned, makes his escape across the French countryside, then leads a ship into battle. And again, his adventures are cleverly counterpointed by those of his alter ego Stephen Maturin. -- Amazon.com

Review:

‘…full of the energy that comes from a writer having struck a vein… Patrick O’Brian is unquestionably the Homer of the Napoleonic wars.’
James Hamilton- Paterson

‘You are in for the treat of your lives. Thank God for Patrick O’Brian: his genius illuminates the literature of the English language, and lightens the lives of those who read him.’
Kevin Myers, Irish Times

‘Written with most engaging enthusiasm that can’t fail to give pleasure to anybody who enjoys historical adventure flavoured with more than a dash of realism.’
Sunday Times

‘Liveliness and expertise… the hero is vigorous flesh and blood.’
Observer

‘This book sets him at the very top of his genre’
Mary Renault
