Looks like something I'll have to check out! I have one of his books on my shelf that I got for $1 at a book sale a few months ago. Thanks for the post.Started the Aubrey/Maturin series by Patrick O'Brian a couple weeks ago. I'm about halfway through the third book now, and just ordered 4-6 this evening. A really great read so far. A very interesting look into 19th century naval life. It seems well researched and is well written. Would recommend.
