Jack Aubrey invites Stephen Maturin to become his ship's doctor/surgeon in 1800.

It is certainly a steep learning curve as the author makes no concessions to readers' ignorance of naval terminology and practice of the period. There were definitely times when I had no idea what was going on. it certainly throws into relief how much other authors play down the strangeness of the past.

Book 8 in the series. Thoroughly absorbing as ever

3 1/2 stars. I know I am preaching to the choir but Goodreads really needs 1/2 stars. This was not a 4 star for me but it wasn't a 3 star either. Well written with a great ending. I would recomend to anyone that likes nautical adventures.

I've seldom read a book less inclined to offer the reader assistance to an unfamiliar setting. Oh sure, we're given some nautical basics through the landlubber's perspective of Maturin, the surgeon and naturalist, but if you haven't been at sea you will need a dictionary at the ready, and one with archaic terms at that, to properly follow along. Thankfully the book opens up as you gradually learn to tell your larboard from starboard and though detailed down to uniforms, knots and nautical references, the action is brisk and the story pulls you along with it.
Be aware that you've set your course for 20 of these novels by opening the first.
