it was amazing
Read in April, 2009

This'll be my third time through the fabulous series that reads like one gigantic novel. British navy stories during the Napoleonic wars may not sound very exciting, but these books are amazing -- the only problem is that there are only 20 of them. They are so complex and so rich in detail that three times through is not sufficient to get all that's there.

If Jane Austen had a brother who wrote about the Navy, this is what those books would sound like.

I love spending time with these characters
