Man of War (Adam Bolitho #3)

3.91  ·  Rating Details  ·  255 Ratings  ·  2 Reviews
In 1817 every harbor and estuary in Antigua is filled with ghostly ships, superfluous in the aftermath of war. In this uneasy peace, Adam Bolitho is offered the 74-gun Athena, a notoriously "unlucky" ship, and as flag-captain to Vice-Admiral Sir Graham Bethune he once more follows his destiny to the Caribbean.

Kent shows a lack of ingenuity with this volume -- more character based and less action. More flashbacks to Sir Richard than new characters, and less of a story line than earlier novels in this series. I considered this one a disappointment.

Shelves: historical
a tedious and melancholy novel with constant navel gazing. Hornblower without the style and panache.
