Though I like this era for reading, I primarily started listening to these books because of my husband. My husband as heard it said that these books are for men what Jane Austen is for women, and I can see why. I don't know if you could find a more masculine book if you tried. I have enjoyed everyone of these books, though at times the story will lag when Steven goes off on one of his many observations of man (though you can't but love him for it). I have grown to love both Captain Aubrey and Steven Maturin. I liked this one in particular for the beginning, seeing what married life really comes down to for Aubrey and for the overall humor throughout the book. **Just a side note, the reader for this series has been great!**
