Terrible novel, terrific beach read.  Just like the Reacher novels I'll probably burn through this series despite how bad they are.  Hard to knock action movie-like books.

I started to listen to the next book in the Harry Turtledove alternate history but just couldn't stomach it (too many of those in a row) so I turned back to an old favorite, the Aubrey/Maturin series.

I had started a re-read of the series a while back and was up the third entry, the book I just finished (HMS Surprise).  I thought I had started my re-read about a year or so ago -- incredibly it was 4 years ago (2016) when I re-read the first two books.  Time does fly.
