really liked it

Not to read a handful of the Aubry books is to miss visiting one of the most thoroughly realized and absorbing imaginary worlds in all of English literature. O'Brian may not be as essential to life as Shakespeare, but he makes life richer by far.

Andrew Fred,

I have read all of the O'Brian series. Have you come across the very interesting true story of the author's life? I thought that the description of the main character was very similar to Bill Clinton! Andy

Fred Andy,

I was on a mission at the time to read through everything O'Brian, but I got sidetracked. One day, I will get the rest of the canon read. Meanwhile, I will look for some bio material.
