fullDescription

This ninth volume in Patrick O'Brian's beloved Aubrey-Maturin series is full of suspense, taking on the role of both nautical adventure and spy story. The polished prose vividly evokes the nineteenth century atmosphere.

All of O'Brian's strengths are on parade in this novel of action and intrigue, set partly in Malta, partly in the treacherous, pirate-infested waters of the Red Sea. While Captain Jack Aubrey worries about repairs to his ship, the HMS Surprise, Stephen Maturin assumes the center stage, for the stockyards and salons of Malta are alive with Napoleon's agents and the admiralty's intelligence network is compromised. Maturin's cunning is the sole bulwark against sabotage of Aubrey's daring mission.

        October 2, 2000
        This novel, the ninth installment of 20 in what is certainly the greatest series about the British Navy ever written--indeed, one of the most successful of its magnitude ever written in any genre--is not well served by its reader. Royal Shakespeare Company and National Theatre actor Pigott-Smith has an appropriately English accent, but his characters' voices lack consistency and sensitivity to the subtleties of O'Brian's pen. In this recording, the swashbuckling Captain Aubrey and the ironic, stealthy Stephen Maturin, his ship's surgeon, do not step onto the stage of the Napoleonic wars as the nuanced heroes O'Brian's readers have come to know over three decades. Pigott-Smith's Maturin lacks compassion; his Aubrey lacks intelligence. The narrative turns from nefarious intrigues in Malta to an amazing mission in the Red Sea and back again, but the drama is conveyed with neither satisfying variation of tempo nor ringing cadence. While O'Brian's devotees will find all the naval and historical details they usually delight in, they will despair at hearing how this production tramples upon his genius in portraying shockingly real characters in an utterly foreign, far-off time. Based on the Norton hardcover.

      • content: The narrative and the narrator are as well matched in this series of British seafaring adventures as Captain Aubrey and his "small, elderly, but sweet sailing frigate, SURPRISE." This book features intrigues of Napoleonic espionage and the wonders of the Southern seas. Tull's vocal virtuosity has a widely disparate group of O'Brian's salty characters upon which to work, from the powerful, but endearing, Captain Aubrey, to the quiet, scientific landlubber, Dr. Maturin. Hearing the vernacular of the early nineteeth-century English navy, complete with the clipped tones of the stuffy upper-class officers and the heavily accented slang of the lowly seaman, the listener feels he's right on board ship. Occasionally, though, the heaviness of the accents and speed of delivery border on the unintelligible. The collaboration of the two Patricks in this series is producing brilliant results. J.D.N.
