Action packed all the way!!,
This review is from: The Young Hornblower Omnibus: "Mr.Midshipman Hornblower", "Lieutenant Hornblower", "Hornblower and the "Hotspur"" (A Horatio Hornblower Tale of the Sea) (Paperback)
It doesn't matter if you're a round the world yaghtsman or an office worker from Croyden, you will love this book! Every second you read it you get sucked further and further into Hornblower's world and you get to a point where you're on the deck of the Indifatigable, can feel the waves and hear the cannons. When starting to read this book make sure you have a week or so to spare, because from the second Hornblower leaves dry land to the end of the voyage, you will be hooked and unable to put the book down for a second. Enjoy!!
