    Description

    Richard Bolitho - Midshipman

    October 1772, Portsmouth. Sixteen-year-old Richard Bolitho waits to join the Gorgon, ordered to sail to the west coast of Africa and to destroy those who challenge the King's Navy. For Bolitho, and for many of the crew, it is a severe and testing initiation into the game of seamanship.

    Midshipman Bolitho and the Avenger

    December 1773, Falmouth. The young Bolitho looks forward to a family Christmas in Cornwall while the Gorgon is refitted. But Cornwall is the treacherous stamping ground of smugglers and wreckers. After the murder of a revenue officer, Bolitho is swept aboard his brother's cutter, Avenger, on a dangerous mission of hide-and-seek.

    This is *not* the book advertised.

    They publishers information says all three of the novellas of Bolitho's early career as a Midshipman are included. They are *not*. Band of Brothers is not in this audiobook. And two chapters of Bolitho and the Avenger repeat so. Otherwise the narration is excellent and what is there is quite enjoyable. But we will never get to hear the details of the events leading up to Bolitho's appointment to Lieutenant.

    Midshipman Bolitho

    This is a good story. There was only one problem, somewhere around chapter 12 the narration began to repeat and reread about 4 chapters. The writer did his research. He was very specific about the workings of a ship of the times. However, I found the names of the characters made it difficult to follow the story and thus interfered with the flow. There were new characters introduced later but there was not enough time spent on them and who they were for me to get invested in there purpose. All in all it was a nice short story.

    Missing Chpaters...

    The story and narration were as good as expected, but as others mentioned the book was not editing correctly and begins repeating chapters about 3/4 through.

    Unexpected Pleasure

    I found this to be my surprise favorite of this series. I found the narrator told the story in such a way that his presence was forgotten. I hit rewind and went through the last two chapters for a second pass. Please powers above, this story begs to be used for a movie.

    Adventure!!!

    The English navy in the late 18th century - this is the beginning of tge Bolitho adventures. Starting as a midshipman this audio book describes two of first adventures (there should have been three in book 1, but oddly the third tale is not here, nor in audio book 2). The tales are full of salt sea, tar and gunpowder, as they should be.

    very enjoyable

    I enjoyed the locales that the story takes place in, Cornwall and Africas west coast. I feel that the proper amount of attention was paid to rope&rigging or sailing lingo. sometimes I get tied up by all the different terms. I thought the narrator could have used a bit more variation between the characters but it was a very strong performance overall.
