OK, that last message was totally incomprehensible, even to me, which is why I deleted it.
What I mean to say was I am behind on my reading, but I am very much looking forward to reading The 13 Gun Salute. I have sneaked a few peaks between the covers, and plan to read it in earnest, NEXT month...
In the meanwhile, I must say Patrick O'Brien is one of the best writers of historical fiction, in my opinion. Frankly, I don't care much about the sea battles and derring-do, althought I'm a sailor myself and an age-of-sail geek. I like the characterizations and the setting, and the way O'Brien makes the age come to life.
