    The Commodore Summary  104 The Commodore Come cheer up my lads 'tis to glory we steerTo add something new to this wonderful yearTo honour we call you not press you like slavesFor who are so free as we sons of the waves Patrick O'Brian The Commodore uoting the sailor song Hearts of OakCaptain Aubrey technically Post Captain gets frocked or the Naval euivalent and now commands a suadron of ships This was a temporary rank given to high ranking captains without making them admirals thus saving the Navy the cost but still giving the captains the prestige they needed to command multiple vessels Aubrey and Maturin head to the coast of Africa to disrupt the slave trade but not before Maturin meets his daughter and discovers his wife has disappeared The high points of this book is Maturin meeting his daughter who is considerd slow

    The Commodore Summary  104 The CommodoreCaptain Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin return to England after sailing all over the world and nearly getting themselves killed in a wide variety of ways It's always good to see family again but trouble at home has them seeking the sea uite soon once Jack is made a commodore and given a small suadron to harass the slave trade along the western coast of Africa This is a partial ruse in order

    The Commodore Summary  104 The CommodoreThis installment in the AubreyMaturin saga has definitely been a late series high point After several books at sea our duo makes port at home where they find high drama in their personal lives Jack's wife Sophie has taken extreme umbrage at the nearby presence of Clarissa Oakes Jack's former passenger on a previous voyage who has a dress from the same bolt of cloth Jack gave her facepalm And Stephen returns to find his wife Diana MIA when the reality

    The Commodore Summary  104 The CommodoreI abandoned Tristram Shandy's light hearted social commentary for a story with guts Patrick O'Brian never fails to deliverJack Aubrey has his first fleet command Part of the plot revolves around a contrast among the leadership styles of three ships' captains1 flog your people until they achieve your standard of perfection;2 have sex with your favorites;3 train your team so that they master a rewarding skill in this case sailing the ship and working its guns

    The Commodore Summary  104 The CommodoreAnother book set mostly at sea which I enjoy This book marks Aubrey's move to a ship of the line acting as a Commodore of a fleet very much coming of age as a captain nearing his advancement as an admiral He and Stephen are feeling their age a bit and maturing overall Stephen also meets his daughter who seems to be on the autism spectrum and she is interestingly written There is also a bit on the dangers of homosexuality in a ship not out of moral reasons but in having a captain repaying sexual favors with favoritism undermining the overall moral of the ship This is a delicate area to write because you don't want to whitewash history and historical attitudes in favor of modern attitudes and understanding but Stephen and Jack would lose their likeability if they were close minded and bigoted O'Brian demonstrates a nice balance in this letting Jack express some ignora

    The Commodore Summary  104 The CommodoreThis book has a jaunty pace and some uick turns In other words it keeps things moving and you get through the 300 or so pages pretty fast I really have to say that the earlier

    The Commodore Summary  104 The Commodore3 35 starsThis seemed like a rather light entry in the series while I was reading it though looking back on it a not insignificant number of important events took place For one Aubrey is made Commodore of a suadron of ships ostensibly being sent to discourage the slave trade in Africa though with an underlying mission to intercept a fleet of French ships being sent to foment rebellion in Ireland Before this however Stephen finally meets his daughter Brigid who apparently suffers from some sort of developmental disability and as a result has been abandoned by her mother Diana
