Which it was a relief!
As a massive fan of this justly famous and much loved series I was nervous of possible mortal injury to my own internal narrator from some badly formed and merely commercial attempt at an audiobook.
So I am pleased to confirm that it is Beautifully read with the characters voiced delightfully.
I hesitated for months before taking a chance on this. If you are a big Aubrey and Maturin fan then buy it now.
