spleens the low ceilinged cutter ca At some point O Brian decided this series would go on indefinitely The structure of some of the books then became odd There are some that don t end they just stop There s an obvious on going unresolved plot but tough luck You Re Gonna Hafta re gonna afta for the next volume to get a resolution This is one of them It ends with a cliff Enqute sur la noblesse hanger which some don t and for some reason it s easier toandle then when a book just stops apparently arbitrarilySo thirteen books in and it s getting Les Nombrils - Tome 5 - Un couple d'enfer (French Edition) harder to find non repetitive things for Aubrey and Maturin to do with each volume yet O Brian pulls it off again Making Maturin not just a physician but an intelligence officer was a stroke of genius in this regard It offers a much greater range of possible and plausible adventures than regular Royal Navy work couldand so we are off to the Pacific on a diplomatic mission with clandestine additional motivations The best most delightful part of this volume is an almost complete aside from the main plotowever Maturin indulges Tuntematon Kimi Räikkönen his interest in

somewhat between volumes in this series but this one is the best since the tenth at least After than a year siatus from my favorite maritime series all I can sigh is I love these stories Patrick O Brian may well be the most brilliant man to ever put pen to page This installment easily bears up to its predecessors with its subtle The Fiddler in the Subway humor nuanced characters and balanced pacing Can t wait for the next on. Scenes flora and fauna to satisfy Aubrey's old friend Stephen Maturin's innocent curiosity as well as scope foris cloak and dagger work enrich its flow The ending of the book leaves the reader than usually impatient for its success. ,
