really liked it
Read in December, 2008

I love the Aubrey Series. The friendship between Jack and Stephen is one of the truly noble and beautiful friendships in literature. The sacrifices made for each other in spite of danger and personal preferences. I am intrigued by what draws these two different personalities together. What forms friendships? Is it that we are attracted to the virtues in another?

Although certainly less "swash-buckling" then the film it was an extraordinary read.
