really liked it
Read in August, 2008

Third in the series and still loving it. There aren't very many battle scenes in this one. Those that happen are plenty warm though with the usual Jack Aubrey capers. They spend a good deal of the novel transporting an envoy from England to India. I felt the solitude (and a certain amount of tedium) of such a long voyage was adequately portrayed.
