A propos du livre :
Patrick O?Brian?s Aubrey-Maturin tales are widely hailed as the greatest series of historical novels ever written. All eighteen books are to be re-issued in hardback by HarperCollins with stunning new jackets.
At the opening of a voyage filled with disaster and delight, Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin are in pursuit of a privateer sailing under American colours through the Great South Sea. Stephen?s objective is to set the revolutionary tinder of South America ablaze to relieve the pressure on the British government which has blundered into war with the young and uncomfortably vigorous United States. The shock and barbarity of hand-to-hand fighting are sharpened by O?Brian?s exact sense of period, his eye for landscape and his feel for a ship under sail.
??full of the energy that comes from a writer having struck a vein? Patrick O?Brian is unquestionably the Homer of the Napoleonic wars.?
James Hamilton- Paterson
?You are in for the treat of your lives. Thank God for Patrick O?Brian: his genius illuminates the literature of the English language, and lightens the lives of those who read him.?
Kevin Myers, Irish Times
?To read Patrick O?Brian is to turn the pages of literary history. His series of novels comprises the most significant extended story since Anthony Powell?s A Dance to the Music of Time.?
Alan Judd, Sunday Times
