The Commodore Summary ↠ 108 Nable to bear this situation has disappeared her house being looked after by the widowed Clarissa OakesMuch of The Commodore takes place on land in sitting rooms and in drafty castles but the roar of the great guns is never far from our hearing Aubrey and Maturin are sent on a bizarre decoy mission to the fever ridden lagoons of the Gulf of.

The Commodore Summary ↠ 108 Having survived a long and desperate adventure in the Great South Sea Captain Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin return to England to very different circumstances For Jack it is a happy homecoming at least initially but for Stephen it is disastrous his little daughter appears to be autistic incapable of speech or contact while his wife Diana u. This installment in the AubreyMaturin saga has definitely been a late series high point After several books at sea our duo makes port at home where they find high drama in their personal lives Jack s wife Sophie has taken extreme umbrage at the nearby presence of Clarissa Oakes Jack s former passenger on a previous voyage who has a dress from the same bolt of cloth Jack gave her facepalm And Stephen returns to find his wife Diana MIA when the reality of their daughter Bridget s autism became too much for her to cope with Stephen s head butting with Jack s mother in law over Bridget is deliciousThey re soon back at sea on a mission that is uite different from anything O Brian has written so far capturing slave traders There s all kinds of drama and tension within Jack s suadron one of the captains is a flogger the other a sodomite and their ships are in total chaos which Jack as the Commodore has to navigate as mutiny and infighting threaten to shred all orderAs with all the books there are so many beautifully rendered scenes that are amazingly crafted in their brevity O Brian can impart such meaning with only a sentence or two making his characters so dimensional they fairly leap from the page

The Commodore Summary ↠ 108 Guinea to suppress the slave trade But their ultimate destination is Ireland where the French are mounting an invasion that will test Aubrey's seamanship and Maturin's resourcefulness as a secret intelligence agentThe subtle interweaving of these disparate themes is an achievement of pure storytelling by one of our greatest living novelist. Another book set mostly at sea which I enjoy This book marks Aubrey s move to a ship of the line acting as a Commodore of a fleet very much coming of age as a captain nearing his advancement as an admiral He and Stephen are feeling their age a bit and maturing overall Stephen also meets his daughter who seems to be on the autism spectrum and she is interestingly written There is also a bit on the dangers of homosexuality in a ship not out of moral reasons but in having a captain repaying sexual favors with favoritism undermining the overall moral of the ship This is a delicate area to write because you don t want to whitewash history and historical attitudes in favor of modern attitudes and understanding but Stephen and Jack would lose their likeability if they were close minded and bigoted O Brian demonstrates a nice balance in this letting Jack express some ignorance in his evaluation and understanding of sexuality religion and race with Stephen serving as a nice counterpoint
