Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Patrick O'Brian

Historical Fiction • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1986

The high-seas adventures of Captain Jack Aubrey and his ship's surgeon, Dr. Stephen Maturin, as read by Patrick Tull, have entertained and educated sailors and lubbers alike for 10 previous productions from Recorded Books. Tull's characterization of these two heroes, his mastery of dialect and his rousing reading of these dramatic sea sagas have become a standard against which all other productions of O'Brian's work must be measured. This book sees Aubrey being struck from the list of the Royal Navy and beginning a career as a privateer, commanding his beloved ship, SURPRISE. Historical fiction doesn't get any better, and Tull's narration is "Prime." L.R.S. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 95]
