Master & Commander

I’ve started reading Master & Commander by Patrick O’Brian.  I’ve long been a fan of Napoleonic War era historical fiction but for some reason I’ve never quite gotten around to the Aubrey-Maturin series.  Though it’s premature to give a real review, I can appreciate why the books were so well received critically.  I’ve got Post Captain and HMS Sapphire on my bookshelf and I’m looking forward to some serious reading!
