Reviews

'Patrick O'Brian is one of the most compelling and brilliant novelists of his time with a huge and dedicated band of admirers in all manner of places. Beyond his superbly elegant writing, wit and originality, he showed an understanding of the nature of a floating world at the mercy of the wind and the sea which has never been surpassed'
Max Hastings

'Any contemporary novelist should recognize in Patrick O'Brian a Master of the Art.'
Sunday Telegraph

'The best historical novels ever written'
New York Times Book Review
