really liked it

I really love this series. Hornblower is so easy to relate to, and while it seems rather fortunate how often things go well for him, it is easy to love and cheer for him. I also really enjoy reading about his inner demons and what Hornblower does to keep them at bay.

I don't quite get his wife though. Why did he get married? Why does he treat her so poorly (not mean, just not particularly well). They aren't likely to have much time together anytime soon, but I hope the relationship improves.
