Story good but just too many typographical errors. A global edit to remove unnecessary hyphenations would be most welcome. If I could I would ask for my money back because I expect this rather large and repetitive error to be something that just doesn't occur in professional publishing. It seriously detracts from enjoying the reading experience.
I've read all 21 volumes of this series. This whole series is excellent, well written, nautically and and historically excellent. I think it is better than the Hornblower books (I read one that was recommended to me, and immediately found an error in one of the battle maneuvers). You will want to get a copy of "A Sea of Words" which is essentially an illustrated dictionary of all the nautical terms and other details about that period in history. The Bolitho books don't stop to explain what a "fid" is or that a "spotted dick" is a particular dish with raisins in it.
Throw her heart
I can only say that if you are history buff or a sailor at heart or in fact the books by Alexander Kent are well worth the money. Kent has a way with words that make you feel like you are there among the action and soon love or hate some characters.
The Richard Bolitho series of book are a fun read. The history on the high seas back in the 17-1800s is an eye-opener. Alexander Kent merges historical events with human drama and enough action to keep you going and going! Only 4 stars because of the tediousness required to fill the reader in on people and past occurrences from earlier in Bolitho's life. This is required of any book series to make a single volume readable, I understand and scan much of this an read on! I will be starting on the 17th Bolitho novel as soon as it hits the mail box!
not bad
I like all of Alexander Kent's "Richard Bolitho" novels--including this one--about the English navy during the days of iron men in wooden ships. They are somewhat similar to the "Hornblower" novels, which I also like. You will best enjoy them in the order published, but they can stand on their own.
Great writing. Best one so far. More like Patrick O'Brian with a rich array of new .charters. Nephew Adam enlarges the richness with a more active role.
Good installment in the series.
