"'Authenticity runs throughout the book, carrying total conviction'" (Patrick O'Brian)
"'First rate action writing'" (Publishers Weekly)
"'Nelson writes with the eagerness of a young man sailing his first command'" (Patrick O'Brian) -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.
The first in his enthralling REVOLUTION AT SEA series, set during America's War of Independence -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.Alle Produktbeschreibungen
are exciting and very imaginitive (which is hard to do when you've read all of O'Brien
and Forester). The only gripe I have is that I want to know Biddlecomb more intensly. I loved
Hornblower because I understood, identified, and appreciated his weaknesses and strengths;
in many respects, he became a role model for me. I want that from Biddlecomb. Of course
he must be his own character, but as long as I feel I know him well, I'll be grabbed
more fully by the novel.
One other thing I loved about the book was the presentation of the different vantages
of the book. I got to get inside Pendexter and Wallace for certian parts of the book.
O'Brien is great, but he gets boring sometimes because you're always seeing the
Aubrey/Maturin perspective. Seeing the immature, selfish perspective of Pendexter
especially was a delight.
All in all, it was great and I'll read any and all that Mr. Nelson writess.
a style similar to Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin series.
following so closely in it's wake, so to speak. It is not,
though there are some expressions, "Never in Life"
and "Easy as kiss my hand", that I had never read anywhere
prior to O'Brian. The action scenes fall somewhere between
Patrick O'Brian and Alexander Kent. The style is easy with
subtle humor woven throughout. I put it down feeling
that I had just finished another in a series written by
Kenneth Roberts. It put me in mind of his "Arundel" or
"Rabble In Arms". Overall I thoroughly enjoyed the book and
look forward to reading the remainder of the series.
