Captain Jack Aubrey and his surgeon/naturalist/philosopher friend, Stephen Maturin, set sail for India in H.M.S. Surprise. Aboard ship is a microcosm of English society in the Napoleonic era. Brown's very British diction pilots the narrative through shoals of class attitudes, erudition and humor. He demonstrates an easy command of languages and scientific terms, lending his own "sangfroid" to events. S.B.S. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 93]
