This remarkable reading of one entry in Kent's seagoing Bolitho series is excellent. Michael Jayston reads a story full of action and painful romance--his pace is measured, and yet his British voice breathes intensity and conviction. Like C.S. Forester's Hornblower, Admiral Bolitho is loosely patterned after the real historical figure, Lord Nelson, down to an adulterous scandal and manner of death. This book concentrates on a nephew, Captain Adam Bolitho, and the listener cannot put it down. D.R.W. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
