Jot Davies reads this very well. The plot is fun and well-constructed but there are irritating moments of carelessness in usage and grammar that reduced my enjoyment of the writing.

At the time of his death, Patrick O'Brian was halfway through a novel that continued the famous and much-loved Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin series. The chapters left off with a moment of almost perfect felicity: Jack has seen his illegitimate son ably discharging important duties, Sophie and his daughters are with him, Stephen has a new love, and Jack, at last, is flying a rear-admiral's flag aboard a ship of the line.

Chapters are separated by awful synthesised music - why not have some of the pieces that Jack & Stephen play rather than this rubbish?

Otherwise a reasonably good reading, though I prefer the narration style of Ric Jerrom.
