3.0 out of 5 stars Too farfetched 26 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have managed three of this series, and they have become less and less believable as time has passed. I will not be continuing to the other six.

3.0 out of 5 stars whatever happened to 'British'? 6 Mar 2014
By DavidS
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Rundle series is a light, easy read. I have taken most of them on Kindle and yes, there are loads of spelling mistakes, but that is not necessarily the writer's problem - place the blame on the publisher's proof-readers. There are bits 'stolen' from Forester (the cargo of rice becomes a cargo of beans) and from Pope (Ramage's rescue of Italian countess) and doubtless I will find more as the series continues. Rundle is a bit improbable because he always comes up smiling despite the most outrageous trials, but we take that with tongue-in-cheek. What grates on me is the constant use of 'England' and 'English' (labels an American writer every time), when it should be 'British'. Half the fleet was made up of Welsh, Scots and Irish men and all of us who are British but not English, writhe with discomfort at the apparent lack of recognition that the Act of Union which created Britain came 100 years before the time period in which the book is set. Why do all American's seem to assume that Britain consists only of England? They weren't 'English ships' they were 'British ships', so please recognise this for the sake of accuracy and clarity.
This book ended somewhat abruptly and glossed over this clumsily with the excuse that it was an elderly admiral recounting his exploits to a third party and had called it a day....
It is a readable series, but never in the same realms as Forester, Pope, Kent, O'Brian and one of the best of them all but often unsung, Showell Styles.

Unfortunately the author, Beetham Stark, is out of his depth and his stories lack both credulity navy realities of the time

1.0 out of 5 stars Appalling 14 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This genre is one in which a degree of historical authenticity is not expected and necessary. The author fails dismally. As usual the book is littered with spelling mistakes
