Sufficiently enjoyable to stay with it. At times it felt unduly tame. This gave rise to thoughts about the possibility that it was written for children. But on balance I don't think that could be so. Some of the narrative was very unrealistic. A midshipman particularly as young as a Rundle would not relate to his subordinates in that manner. Nor would a Captain, or senior officer, seek 15/16 year old Midshipman about Anything. I am set to follow through on the series.

The book makes light reading, but the author seems to have a very poor memory. He has Midshipman Rundel passing his cat in a cage down into the boat in one sentence then in the next the cat was on his shoulder whilst he got into the boat.
He should have done more research on British history.
I do however find it amazing that a young man can have done so much by the age of 16.

The facts in this book appear to be historically accurate but the characterisation is very simple and the harshness of the time is skimmed over. However for someone who is interested in the Napoleonic War it gives a very readable way of revisiting the early stages of the conflict. Rundel is not a Hornblower or an Aubrey but his adventures make good reading.

This book is a good read to anyone who is interested inNaval history. The explanations of anchoring short handed are well written especially to anyone who has tried it. The story itself is very far fetched, but one problem or adventure after another is what makes you reluctant to put it down.

One of a series that I wish I hadn't bought. It is a very poor constituent to the canon of British Nelsonian Navy stories. Most are well written and true to the times they portray. This author seems not to understand what is required.

Just started the 'Rundle ' series, a good rollicking series of naval yarns full of adventure for those of us who enjoy a good 'Swash buckle', I shall be getting all of the series.
