Fiction • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1977

No matter what other reviewers say it is like Hornblower: same era, same Admiralty, same intro-spection, but less action. Richard Brown reads rather than dramatizes--the characters' voices are barely distinguishable; his methodical approach sounds more like an Admiralty Court than story-telling. The British accent fits, of course, but Brown could have done a lot more with this inherently exciting tale. By the time Brown approaches the denouement, the listener hardly cares whether or not England conquers the island of Mauritius. D.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 93]
