really liked it
Read in January, 2005

If you want to start the Aubrey/Maturin series, I suggest you start with this book. It has the best pacing. Then I would work back and read "Master and Commander" and "Post Captain". I would also make sure to have on hand the companion book "A Sea of Words", which essentially works as a glossary to the series. It really helps with the nautical and contemporary medical terms.
