I listened to the audio version of this book. Not sure I could have read it otherwise. I'm not the sea-going type. Nevertheless I very much wanted to read Mr. Forester's classic sea saga. It's actually quite good and if you pay very close attention--which I confess I didn't always do--contains some good dry humor. It is extremely well-written and for those even a bit more acquainted with nautical matters, this would be a 4 or 5 star book. Hopefully I'll still return to finish the series someday.
