CS Forester rules!

This is the third installment in the Hornblower series in which I’m now entirely caught up. My very literary friend turned me on to this series. Excellent window into the British Navy during the late 18th and early 19th century. Character development is well executed. The moral choices laid before a Horatio and how he answers them are a credit to the author’s deft handling of his character’s. Excellent stories

Great book!

Wonderful book. Great narrator, but the audio isn’t edited at all for volume. At times too quiet, and at time way too loud.
