This one was a little harder for me to follow and I found myself having to rewind the audiobook many times and relisten to sections. I'm sure most of this is because my children have started their summer vacation and any of you with children will understand when I say that children are not condusive to audiobooks! I liked this story and the characters as much as I have in the previous novels. Again, I can't quite get the hang of all the nautical jargon yet, but maybe by the end of this series I will learn enough to be an "able seaman". I also enjoyed some of the storylines especially Steven Maturin and the little indian girl, though sad, it brought some more humanity to him and I liked him the better for it.
