    The Commodore MOBI ¶ Hardcover commodore ebok, The Commodore PDF/EPUB Come cheer up my lads 'tis to glory we steerTo add something new to this wonderful yearTo honour we call you not press you like slavesFor who are so free as we sons of the waves Patrick O'Brian The Commodore quoting the sailor song Hearts of OakCaptain Aubrey technically Post Captain gets frocked or the Naval equivalent and now commands a squadron of ships This was a temporary rank given to high ranking captains without making them admirals thus saving the Navy the cost but still giving the captains the prestige they needed to command multiple vessels Aubrey and Maturin head to the coast of Africa to disrupt the slave trade but not before Maturin meets his daughter and discovers his wife

    The Commodore MOBI ¶ Hardcover commodore ebok, The Commodore PDF/EPUBCaptain Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin return to England after sailing all over the world and nearly getting themselves killed in a wide variety of ways It's always good to see family again but trouble at home has them seeking the sea quite soon once Jack is made a commodore and given a small squadron to harass the slave trade along the western coast of Africa This is a partial ruse in order to draw out the French and stop them from getting to Ireland where they might foment the natural Irish inclination to revolt against their English overlordsAt least I believe that's how the story goes Sometimes if you're not paying super close attention to these books O'Brian will slip something important past you He had a knack for downplaying

    The Commodore MOBI ¶ Hardcover commodore ebok, The Commodore PDF/EPUBThis installment in the AubreyMaturin saga has definitely been a late series high point After several books at sea our duo makes port at home where they find high drama in their personal lives Jack's wife Sophie has taken extreme umbrage at the nearby presence of Clarissa O

    The Commodore MOBI ¶ Hardcover commodore ebok, The Commodore PDF/EPUBI abandoned Tristram Shandy's light hearted social commentary for a story with guts Patrick O'Brian never fails to deliverJack Aubrey has his first fleet command Part of the plot revolves around a contrast among the leadership styles of three ships' captains1 flog your people until they achieve your standard of perfection2 have sex with your favorites3 train your team so that they master a rewarding skill in this case sailing the ship and working its guns so as to maximize the potential for taking prizes with minimal loss of lifeThe results of these three styles1 a mutinous crew that is bound to mishandle the ship in a battle2 a crew of insiders and outsiders who resent each other3 an efficient fighting crew who will follow their capt

    The Commodore MOBI ¶ Hardcover commodore ebok, The Commodore PDF/EPUBJack and Stephen return home after a voyage around the world and an absence of years Stephen meets his young daughter for the first time but does not find the picture of domestic happiness that he wished for Jack and Sophie are reunited but soon have a falling out over a couple of painful misunderstandingsThey return to sea Jack having been given command of a squadron and sent publicly to harass slavers off the coast of Africa and privately to intercept a French invasion force Already disturbed over his private troubles he has to deal with one barely competent flogging captain and another who is destroying discipline on his ship by consorting with young crewmembersThis book contains one of my favorite passages where Stephen overhears Jack playing the violin alone and realizes that Jack has long been disguising his musical ability in order to match Stephen's skill level

    The Commodore MOBI ¶ Hardcover commodore ebok, The Commodore PDF/EPUBCharming as ever although featuring one of O’Brian’s rambling and anticlimactic plots

    The Commodore MOBI ¶ Hardcover commodore ebok, The Commodore PDF/EPUBHaving circum navigated the globe Aubrey and Maturin have an interlude back in England before setting off to fight the slave trade off the coast of Africa These interludes are the weakest parts of this saga for me I just get a bit bored quite quickly But soon enough we're back at sea with Aubrey in command of a small fleet for the second time and then matters fairly whizz along like a ship clapping on sail right up to the sky scrapers The problems of fleet command present new challenges for Aubrey and Maturin faces new and old family challengesA pleasant competent entry into this series neither the worst nor the best and only three to go

    The Commodore MOBI ¶ Hardcover commodore ebok, The Commodore PDF/EPUBAnother book set mostly at sea which I enjoy This book marks Aubrey's move to a ship of the line acting as a Commodore of a fleet very much coming of age as a captain nearing his advancement as an admiral He and Stephen are feeling their age a bit and maturing overall Stephen also meets his daughter who seems to be on the autism spectrum and she is interestingly written There is also a bit on the dangers of homosexuality in a ship not out of moral reasons but in having a captain repaying sexual favors with favoritism undermining the overall moral of the ship This is a delicate area to write because you don't want to whitewash history and historical attitudes in favor of modern attitudes and understanding but Stephen and Ja

    The Commodore MOBI ¶ Hardcover commodore ebok, The Commodore PDF/EPUBThis book has a jaunty pace and some quick turns In other words it keeps things moving and you get through the 300 or so pages pretty fast I really have to say that the earlier volumes were the best of the series

    The Commodore MOBI ¶ Hardcover commodore ebok, The Commodore PDF/EPUBAubrey and Maturin continue their saga A large part of the story is land based where Jack Aubrey is not the most perceptive of people In fact he is apt to be a bit of a buffoon Once at sea he becomes the perfect seaman Like all of these books The Commodore is very gripping and a good read
