What a GEM! I have been working my way through several titles from the 1800's and what a lovely find this was. This treasure contains wonderfully simple, charming, believable characters, adventurous, inoccent romping across sea...(and land in Mr Easy's case,)a wonderfully written storyline with quite charming wording that is simply lost in much of today's writings.
I would recommend this novel to everyone from teenage onward. (I was introduced to Hornblower by my dad as a teenager and I have a fondness for historical adventures.)
I am off to add the other Marryat eBooks to my kindle. If only the hard copies weren't so expensive and hard to come by. I would love to have these beautifully written novels on my shelves!
Enjoy this lovely read, it really is a 'book to curl up with'.
