eBook Friday: Master and Commander

Master and Commander, by Patrick O’Brian (audiobook):

Here is the maiden voyage of O’Brian’s acclaimed Aubrey-Maturin series, which follows the unique friendship between Captain Aubrey, R. N., and Stephen Maturin, ship’s surgeon and intelligence agent, against the backdrop of the Napoleonic wars. O’Brian renders in riveting detail the life aboard a man-of-war in Nelson’s navy:  the conversational idiom of the officers in the ward room and the men on the lower deck, the food, the floggings, the mysteries of the wind and the rigging, and the roar of broadsides as the great ships close in battle.
