About the Author:

C.S. Forester was born in 1899, the son of an English school-teacher. He cut his teeth on a series of military and naval novels before being offered a Hollywood screen-writing job to pen a pirate movie. However when that project went belly up, he turned to writing again with the first of the series that was to make him a worldwide name - THE HAPPY RETURN starring one Horatio Hornblower. He eventually died in 1966.

From AudioFile:

Reader Christian Rodska sounds much like the late Roddy McDowell--the same expressive precision, the same British accent, the same skill with narrative flow. Without fully acting out each part, Rodska differentiates the characters, and through his handling of the prose, one can hear the creaking of the ship's rigging and the screams of dying men. This is a Horatio Hornblower sea story set in Napoleonic times, one of the best: The Captain attempts to help a mad Central American revolutionary to overthrow the Spanish dominions.
