    Non stop action and a great read on every page as the young Horatio Hornblower gets in and out of trouble There are superb sailing scenes where you don t have to understand all the terms to get the feel and flavor and tension of what is happening There is also intelligent consideration of these events in the mind of the maturing Hornblower, when he succeeds and also when that suc...

    I was a little disappointed with this Hornblower book It was definitely the weakest of the bunch thus far Hornblower is promoted to Post Captain and as junior Captain on the rolls but none the less favored he is given a ship a 22 gun sloop of war The smallest possible shop to rate a full Captain Good stuff so far, but the story never really develops or picks up as it does in the other books There is no great crisis Hornblower never needs to bring his ship into a desperate struggle And I was a little disappointed with this Hornblower book It was definitely the weakest of the bunch thus far Hornblower is promoted to Post Captain and as junior Captain on the rolls but none the less favored he is given a ship a 22 gun sloop of war The smallest possible shop to rate a full Captain Good stuff so far, but the story never really develops or picks up as it does in the other books There is no great crisis Hornblower never needs to bring his ship into a desperate struggle And this is a disappointment.This book is really in three parts 1 Hornblower takes over his ship, 2 Hornblower conducts a salvage operation in Turkish waters, and 3 ...

    Horatio Hornblower gets the helm of his first ship.Even though it is a small ship, and he is the junior most captain of the navy, he gets sent on an important mission, and uses his wits and guile to win the day.It is amazing to see h...

    Another good addition to the Hornblower series As usual, the action never stops in several different adventures That was one of the issues too, though In prior books, a big deal has been made of how long it took to beat back windward the lack made the end of the book seem a bit sketchy Also, it ends on a terrible cliff hanger.On the plus side, there was a salvage operation that was quite interesting several narrow escapes The latt...

    This review is for the complete 11 book series of THE HORNBLOWER SAGA by C.S Forester, which I just finished reading last night Note Individual books have individual star ratings mostly 5 star, a few 4 star , but the descriptive review will be the same for each, and encompass the entire series, as follows Actually, I just finished reading the complete series for the second time, the first being as a teenager some 30 years ago.It s remarkable to me that I have only just this moment realized This review is for the complete 11 book series of THE HORNBLOWER SAGA by C.S Forester, which I just finished reading last night Note Individual books have individual star ratings mostly 5 star, a few 4 star , but the descriptive review will be the same for each, and encompass the entire series, as follows Actually, I just finished reading the complete series for the second time, the first being as a teenager some 30 years ago.It s remarkable to me that I have only just this moment realized that my own timeline regarding the two readings corresponds almost exactly to the age progression experienced by the main character in the course of these 11 novels.It s a 30 year journey unlike any other I have ever taken in books full and deep and satisfying.This is the epic saga of fictional British naval hero HORATIO HORNBLOWER, who goes from a 17 year old midshipman to a ...

    I was rather leery of starting in on the Hornblower series Without knowing anything about it aside from the period in which it was set and the period in which it was published, I had the notion it was going to be pulpy, melodramatic, and repetitious.That couldn t be farther from the truth In this book, as, indeed, in the whole series, Forester presents a splendidly realistic hero, full of both foibles and virtues His historical setting is engrossing and obviously well researched It still doe I was rather leery of starting in on the Hornblower series Without knowing anything about it aside from the period in which it was set and the period in which it was published, I had the notion it was going to be pulpy, melodramatic, and repetitious.That couldn t be farther from the truth In this...

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I m really loving the Hornblower series I would have appreciated itduring my time in the Navy This one was awesome HH now with a wife and 2 children, gets a new ship, puts on a funeral for Lord Nelson, meets the King, finds treasure, trains up a German Prince to be a midshipman, outwits the Turks and Spaniards and then has to use his cutlass in close combat The result would be good, right No he loses command of the Atropos as it ...

    A fun read, like most Hornblower books And, like many Hornblower books, the parts are greater than the whole Forester has wonderfully enjoyable episodes Hornblower steering a barge on the way to his new command accompanied by a disapproving Maria Hornblower s ship beginning to sink as he leads the Nelson funeral procession being saddled with a non English speaking prince and his obnoxious equerry as part of his crew treasure hunting with Ceylonese pearl divers off the Turkish coast and A fun read, like most Hornblower books And, like many Hornblower books, the parts are greater than the whole Forester has wonderfully enjoyable episodes Hornblower steering a barge on the way to his new command accompanied by a disapproving Maria Hornblower s ship beginning to sink as he leads the Nelson funeral procession being saddled with a non English speaking prince and his obnoxious equerry as part of his crew treasure hunting with Ceylonese pearl divers off the Turkish coast and the question of what exactly you do when an important member of your crew falls into the ocean at the same time you are being chased by a large enemy ship Hornblower s sol...
