9780006170174: The Far Side of the World

Set in 1812, Jack Aubrey and his shipmate Stephen Maturin set course across the South Atlantic to intercept an American frigate that is sailing to disrupt the British whaling fleet. The author has written many naval tales including "The Reverse of the Medal" and "Treason's Harbour".

Review:

Captain Jack Aubrey sets sail for Cape Horn, determined to intercept an American frigate before it can wreak havoc on the British whaling trade. As always, he is accompanied by intelligence operative Stephen Maturin, and as always, Aubrey has no idea of what his companion is up to. Another impeccably written adventure, by the end of which you should be able to identify a mizzen topsail in your sleep.

From the Inside Flap:

Read by Tim Pigott-Smith
3 cassettes/ 5 hours

The 10th installment in the Aubrey/Maturin series

The War of 1812 continues, and Jack Aubrey sets course for Cape Horn on a mission after his own heart: intercepting a powerful American frigate outward bound to play havoc with the British whaling trade.  Stephen Maturin has fish of his own to fry in the world of secret intelligence.  Disaster in various guises awaits them in the Great South Sea and in the far reaches of the pacific: typhoons, castaways, shipwrecks, murder, and criminal insanity.

Book Description Fontana Press, 1985. Paperback. Book Condition: Used; Acceptable. Dispatched, from the UK, within 48 hours of ordering. The book is perfectly readable and fit for use, although it shows signs of previous ownership. The spine is likely creased and the cover scuffed or slightly torn. Textbooks will typically have an amount of underlining and/or highlighting, as well as notes. If this book is over 5 years old, then please expect the pages to be yellowing or to have age spots. Grubby book. This book is dirty and has significant shelf wear, however all text is there and readable, as such it is acceptable for sale, and is still a good read. Thanks.
