Not Forester or O'Brian, but jolly fun

I read the Ramage series 40 years ago right after finishing the Hornblower Saga. After that anything would feel derivative, despite Pope's efforts to make Ramage the antithesis of Forester's hero. Ramage is wealthy, hansom, athletic, and comfortable in his own skin. The Ramage series is more swashbuckling than Hornblower which was an exploration into the psychology of a naval hero just as Aubrey/Matchurin books focused on the evolution of friendship as tested by war and shifting fortune. Pope knows his stuff and has written several naval histories. Taken for what they are, the Ramage books are fun.

Great Action in the day of Fighting Sail!

Would you consider the audio edition of Ramage to be better than the print version?

I often find that a good narrator, and Steven Crossley is just excellent, breathes life to the prose.....thus making a richer experience of the story....and of course the story is everything. I have listened to many books narrated by Steven Crossley and he is one of my most favorites.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Ramage?

The revelation that he had not failed his duty

What does Steven Crossley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He is a master of cadence and emphasis bringing just the right touch to each character he plays
