Description: Master and Commander is the first of Patrick o Brian now famous aubrey/Maturin novels, regarded by many as the greatest series of historical novels ever writen.
It estabilishes the friendship between Captain Jack Aubrey RN and Stephen Maturin , who becomes his secretive ships's surgeon and a intelligence agent.
It contains als the action and excitment wich could possibly be hoped for in a historical novel, but it also displays the qualities which have put o Brain far ahead of any of his competitors : his depiction of the detail of life aboard a Nelsonic man-of-war, of wapons , food , conversations and ambiance , of the landscape and of the sea.
O Brain portrayal of each of these is faultless and the sense of the periode througout is acute.
His power of caracterisation is above masterly.
This brilliant histrorical novel marked the debut of a writer who grew into one of our greatest novelist ever, the author of what Alan Judd , writing in the Sunday Times , has discribed as the most significant extended story since Anthony Powwel's A dance to the music of time.
