The Mauritius Command, by Patrick O'Brian

The first of this series I read in book form as opposed to listening to it as an audio book.  I'm not sure I could have enjoyed this series had I not listened to the first few.  It sounds strange, but the nautical terms are strange enough, and the personalities difficult enough, that it really helped to have listened to the first few "performed" to get the feel and understanding for these.  They take much longer to listed to than to read, but the audio books are really well done.  Having a few behind me made it much easier, and much more enjoyable to read this fourth book in the series.
