Companionship is certainly the key to happiness in life at sea. This first in O’Brian’s series of Jack Aubrey novels introduces Dr. Stephen Maturin, intellectual foil to the captain’s man of action. Earphones Awards winner Simon Vance juggles multiple characters, accents, and dramatic and comedic scenes with aplomb. Vance’s warm, welcoming voice captures colorful characters, entertaining relationships, and not much plot. Readers in search of a handful of excellent companions with whom to spend many enjoyable hours will be hail and well met. R.O. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
