The Yellow Admiral characters ¶ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Between their estates; he is on even worse terms with his wife Sophie whose mother has ferreted out a most damaging trove of old personal letters Even Jack's exploits at sea turn sour in the storm waters off Brest he captures a French privateer laden with gold and ivory but this at the expense of missing a signal and deserting his post Worst of all in the spring of 1814 peace breaks out and this feeds into Jack'. As ever reading O Brian is like meeting up with an old friend In this one the unfolding of the plot is slow and somewhat predictable it s like talking with an old friend solely of the past reliving old memories and not learning anything new about one another There are none of the fireworks of the earlier books no huge twists or turns That s not necessarily a flaw though the prose as ever soothes and comforts and the rendering of Jack and Stephen and the numerous supporting cast is as sympathetic yet unflinching as ever Only two books left in the series though which makes me sad I want to read them and yet I don t

The Yellow Admiral characters ¶ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Life ashore may once again be the undoing of Jack Aubrey in The Yellow Admiral Patrick O'Brian's best selling novel and eighteenth volume in the AubreyMaturin series Aubrey now a considerable though impoverished landowner has dimmed his prospects at the Admiralty by his erratic voting as a Member of Parliament; he is feuding with his neighbor a man with strong Navy connections who wants to enclose the common land. 35 4 starsPoor old Jack certainly has a rough go of it this time around Despite the great one might even say excessive success of his mission in Africa as far as prizes go Jack find himself once again on the edge of penury when some of the slave ship owners come forward with documented protection which ties up most of Jack s assets in court To make matters worse some old letters from a former lover of Jack s surface leaving his marriage most definitely on the rocks To put the plum on the pudding he is assigned to the Brest blockade under the command of an admiral that views him with a than jaundiced eye due to Jack s scotching of the man s schemes to enclose land for which Jack is the titular manorial lord Hanging over all of this is Jack s fear that even should he proceed up the ladder of promotion with the war seemingly near its end and his political and financial prospects shrinking before his eyes he is than likely to become a Yellow Admiral of the title an admiral in name only who has the command of no suadron and lives on half pay While Jack struggles with his professional and personal woes Stephen engages in various espionage activities and his endeavours prove to be rather successful than those of his friend Much of the events of the book occur on land and I am finding that I enjoy the books in the series where this is the case even than the ones that take place solely on the briny deeps I think one reason may be that it allows O Brian to display a bit versatility in his storytelling and perhaps because it also tends to give Maturin a bit of the spotlight Don t get me wrong Jack is a fine fellow indeed and his cheery good nature and naval brilliance are always welcome but there is just something about Stephen s perhaps patchy personality that draws me to him This was an enjoyable volume in the series and my only real complaint would probably be that the books are getting shorter and shorter as we near the end of the series Ah well there is always re reading at least
