"No novelist since C. S. Forester has recreated the old navy of the days of sail with such authenticity and such vivid imaginative insight as Patrick O'Brian. [ . . . ] In the present book Jack and his friend have come ashore to enjoy the blessings of the land and the fruits of their labours. A season's hunting and the beginnings of a happy love affair with the entrancing Sophia are suddenly cut short by a financial thunderclap that turns him from a man of substance into a haunted debtor." - from the dust wrapper blurb. ; ; 8vo.

Sinopsis: This is the Cassette audiobook library edition.
The excitement continues in Post Captain, the second installment of Patrick O'Brian's highly acclaimed Aubrey-Maturin series, following Master and Commander.
In 1803, Napoleon smashes the Peace of Amiens, and Captain Jack Aubrey, taking refuge in France from his creditors, is interned. He escapes from France, from debtor's prison, and from a possible mutiny and pursues his quarry straight into the mouth of a French-held harbor. Stephen Maturin's struggles, with himself as much as with a proud and intelligent woman, are woven into Aubrey's, straining their friendship at times to the breaking point.
Críticas: The year is 1803, and that scalawag Napoleon Bonaparte has gone to war again. For Captain Jack Aubrey, who has fled to France to escape his creditors, this is doubly alarming news. In short order the captain is interned, makes his escape across the French countryside, and leads a ship into battle. And again, his adventures are cleverly counterpointed by those of his alter ego Stephen Maturin.
