The Publishers Weekly review above gives an excellent description of this wonderful historic novel. The first of O'Brian's historic sea novels which includes "Master and Commander" of which I saw the movie starring Russel Crowe; but have not yet read the novel. This novel has far too many tedious details to be made into a movie without some major condensing and rewriting. The battle at the end would be better in a movie; I had a hard time following the novel's description of it. A movie version with a play by play reenactment from the book's detailed description would be fantastic. We didn't see that much of the battle in the movie version of "Master and Commander" it would have been too expensive and dangerous I suspect. But thanks to that new tool of "Movie Magic "; "Computer Animation" the whole battle could be reenacted completely safely and inexpensively.
