Yes - it is a captivating listen - full of excitement, adventure, and feeling. Christian Rodska delivers a sublime narration - brings all of the characters to life.
I liked the whole story. Difficult to pull out any part I liked better than others.
Christian Rodska skillfully brings personality via voice to each of the characters - the images appear in my mind of what the characters look like easily because of the excellent performance by Mr. Rodska.
Kydd is the main character and is of course "memorable", but the entire cast is so vividly portrayed that it's difficult to single Kydd out as the "most" memorable character.
This Kydd series is a fascinating look at life aboard English ships of war through the eyes of Thomas Kydd - the books are so well written and narrated that it's easy to feel Kydd's experiences - these are really proving to be great books and excellent listens.
Around the World - Triumph to Tragedy
This book took them around the world with a purpose. Kydd's time on the Artemas is both interesting and challenging. Their time in the South Pacific is an interesting scenario.
Rodska does such a good job with all of the characters, it is very difficult to choose one. He does such an excellent job at making the characters different and realistic. Where the story may lack and lull from time to time, Rodska makes a difference.
