really liked it

The first ten books or so are superb, but after that repetition and boredom set in. O'Brian uses the same plot devices over and over (the most notable are the financial disasters that beset Aubrey and Maturin after they are enriched on one of their voyages--Aubrey must have been fleeced by predatory businessmen/wicked government agencies at least half a dozen times in the course of the books).
