SPOILERS BELOWThis particular edition to the series may well have been entitled When Maturin Cannibals and Platypuses Attack This and the previous book in the series is rather meandering and doesn t seem to have much in the way of a concrete objective in terms of where the author wanted to take the characters but it s Patrick O Brain so who cares His descriptive detail the viewpoints of the characters mostly and seemingly increasingly from Maturin the vast knowledge of contemporary technology proceedings and customs as well as just the feeling of having been taken back in time does than enough to compel one to read this series As the saying goes it s the journey not the destination which is just as well because when O Brian brings his books to a close he doesn t do so by gently closing the door so much as yanking out the plug May he rest in peace

Patrick OBrian ¹ 6 Download Summary ï PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ¹ Patrick OBrian Free read The Nutmeg of Consolation ‘If it’s blood I must put it in cold water this directly minute’ said Killick who knew perfectly well that it was bloodShipwrecked on an island in the Dutch East Indies the last of whose animals have almost been hunted to extinction by the hungry seamen and – worst of all – with grog and tobacco nearly finished Captain Aubrey and his followers are still able to play a rousing game of cricket on the beach A desperate battle with Malay pirates follows but then thanks. This the 14th volume in Patrick O Brian s brilliant Aubrey Maturin canon is one of my absolute favorites of the twenty completed novels in this wonderful Napoleonic wars seafaring series The Nutmeg of Consolation is a page turner from page one on We join Captain Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin in the East Indies as they are rescued from a deserted island acuire the beautifully Dutch built small frigate the Nutmeg of Consolation fight a running sea battle with the much larger French frigate Cornelie meet up with all of their chums aboard HMS Surprise and then visit the penal colony of New South Wales in Australia The action at sea and ashore is tense and engaging as well as being full of the wonders of science and nature that Stephen and his friend Martin explore on the islands they visit and in the Australian outback This is a terrific book and oh so cleverly plotted and written All of the Aubrey Maturin novels are superb and this particular episode just happens to be in my opinion one of the crown jewels in the series I unhesitatingly recommend this novelas well as the entire series
