The Wine-Dark Sea
I finishedThe Wine-Dark Sea by Patrick O'Brian on the way home from work today. It began with a bang involving a chase and a volcano, moves through ship-board politics, then had period of Maturin on land trying to undermine Spain in Peru.
This trip seems to have been going on a while now in the series. I am ready for the guys to go home to England and catchup on what is afoot there. I believe the next novel sends us back there and I can't wait. a 5 from me.
