Excitement and suspense in Treason’s Harbour

leave a comment »

I’m now in the middle of Treason’s Harbour, the 9th volume of the Aubrey/Maturin series of novels of the British Navy in the Napoleonic era, written by Patrick O’Brian, and as they prepare for a naval engagement the excitement and suspense is overwhelming—I had to put down the book, and writing a blog post seems a relief and momentary distraction before I return to the novel.

It’s interesting when something you are reading—not watching, as in a movie or a play—can so work its magic on you. I do recommend the novels, which should be read in sequence, since they are a developing story.
