Publisher's Summary

This tale begins with Jack Aubrey arriving home from his exploits in the Mediterranean to find England at peace following the Treaty of Amiens. He and his friend Stephen Maturin, surgeon and secret agent, begin to live the lives of country gentlemen, hunting, entertaining, and enjoying amorous adventures. Their comfortable existence, however, is cut short when Jack is overnight reduced to a pauper with enough debts to keep him in prison for life. He flees to the continent to seek refuge; instead he finds himself a hunted fugitive as Napoleon has ordered the internment of all Englishmen in France.

There are better versions out there

I am reviewing the quality of the audiobook here and not the story. I found this version of "Post Captain: Aubrey-Maturin" hard to follow and not worth the price. There are other unabridged version of this on audio book which have more clarity and do more justice to Patrick O'Brian's work.

Abridged

An Abridged book - bought by accident - and not worth the effort - all the enjoyment of the book surgically removed,

when can we have the full set (of 21) unabridged books?
