I have a question for those of you who have read these books before. Yesterday, I was lucky enough to find a used copy of "The Far Side of the World" and since I've read and liked "Master and Commander", I picked it up. However, I later learned that this is actually the 10th book in the series, something that wasn't indicated on the back of the cover. My question is this: Is it necessary that I read the previous books in the series in order to understand the plot of this one, or can I jump right into it?

It is not necessary to read the books between, especially since "The Far Side of the World" is rather self-contained, but of course it is very helpful, since the life of the protagonists developed a lot between the two books. Marriage, children, Stephen being a spy, the war of 1812 and Stephen's/Jack's involvement in it, various missions that get referred etc.

You *could* jump right into it, but the later books in the series have many multi-book plot arcs. That one's relatively self-contained for the later series, but I'd still strongly advise reading the books in order. If you liked Master and Commander, it's definitely worth just taking the plunge and buying the hazel cabrera sex scene. Divided by 21, that's only six dollars per book, and they're hardbacks!

I'm pretty sure the reader is supposed to be bewildered about all the complexity of the sails and rigging and whatnot. Stephen too knows absolutely nothing about ships, and it becomes a running joke through the series as he misuses nautical terms and fall down hatches / off the side of the ship every book. It's obvious to the reader that Stephen is absolutely brilliant in a lot of ways, but O'Brian knows that his audience, while they may have some ideas about politics or spy stories or nature, (probably) has absolutely no clue about the mechanics or rigging of a three-masted sailing ship. By fully describing it, he:
a) teaches us at the same time Stephen is learning about it;
b) Enables us to empathize with Stephen, because we too probably won't recall or understand much of what is going on;
c) really establishes the authenticity of the novels. Like I said before, the stories end up not sounding like "Modern-day hero, but in the past!", but more like "These are relatively realistic adventures on a ship that doesn't magically sail itself through the power of narrative fiction, but rather sails through the interplay of a myriad of sails and ropes (in fiction)"

Not much to explain, they wouldn't give him a new mast just because he didn't like the old one, so he went out and broke the old one in a way that couldn't quite be accused of being intentional. It's been a while, but IIRC there was even some nudge-nudge, wink-wink chat with the supply guy hinting that this would be the best way to get a replacement.

Anyway, these books are a lot like scifi in the sense that the author just drops the reader directly into a fairly technically-detailed world that they know practically nothing about and have to pick up as they go.

I am loving the dialogue and interplay (obviously) paraphrased: "with affectionate violence he jostled him inside" and "no mention was made of the incident in the ship's log, as it did not possess the language to explain that the boat's surgeon had shaken his fist at the captain".

I have no idea why that's as funny as it was to me.

I think its the way all of o'briens descriptions are really understated, and you kind of add the humour to it yourself, I dont really know how else to describe it. Its probably the single thing for me that really sets his writing aside, and I've never read any other author that manages to pull it off quite like he does.

Cool, I was wondering when a thread about this series would pop up. I'm reading through the Nutmeg of Consolation right now.

Everyone look at their hands

I don't want to derail this thread, since we're talking about one of the best authors and books ever. But I read a lot, and someone asked on page 1 about Alexander Kent's Bolitho series. Here's my entirely subjective opinion on it and a few others.

Bolitho is entertaining, if not as well-written as O'Brian (but frankly none of the other series are). Richard Bolitho has kind of a twentieth century moral code, and does his best for his crew and their families as he can within the confines of the Royal Navy. It bogs down later, when his love life begins to sound like "Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton, if they were _awesome_", but picks up again when Kent focuses more on his illegitimate nephew. I liked reading the series, and the action scenes are great, but Kent doesn't make you feel for the characters themselves as much as O'Brian.

Alexander Pope has his Lord Ramage series, and it's a good bit more fun to read. Ramage is a bit more realistic, and the characters seem less stuffy than the Bolitho series. Ramage himself is a young, educated nobleman who takes a page from Lord Cochrane's bio when it comes to ship-handling and strategy. He's also handsome, speaks several languages, is rich as hell, carries a throwing knife in his boot, has a posse of multicultural crew members that follow him from ship, is in love with a real-life princess, and sounds like exactly the kind of Mary Sue that a bad writer would make up. But it's really good, and he's actually entertaining.

Then there's C. S. Forester's Horatio Hornblower. Like everyone else is saying, they're great action stories, but not that well researched. Give the guy a break. He was the first modern author to write in this genre, he started halfway through (Beat to Quarters) Hornblower's career, and sort of ret-conned his way backwards and forwards from there. Besides, the guy wrote the African Queen, and the A&E version with Ion Gruffudd was what got me into the genre to start with. Think of Hornblower as a quick watercolor sketch and Aubrey/Maturin as an oil painting of the same time-period.

But the guy I recommend above any others is Dewey Lambdin. Alan Lewrie is the anti-Hornblower, the Costello to O'Brian's Abbot, and one hell of a lot of fun to read. Lewrie would rather be on shore wasting his father's money, screwing and drinking every night of the week in London. But he's basically blackmailed into the Navy, and finds out that he's actually pretty good at it. His characters are unique and full of life; as is London and British society at the time. Lewrie is an unashamed toady and catch-fart to anyone with more money or a higher rank than him, he's cheap and nasty to anyone of a lower rank (he gets better) and pretty much is the 19th century equivalent of that stereotypical rich jock who everybody hates. This is counterbalanced by the brass set of balls he has in any conflict (battle or arguments), and his bloody-minded determination to make his way in the career he hates. The guy is awesome, and just gets better every book.

Lambdin also goes out of his way to call bullshit on naval cliche's and stereotypes. For example, in every one of the other series, the Ship's Purser is always a cheating bastard, who issues spoiled food and drink to the crew, takes false deductions from dead sailor's wages, and out of their kid's mouths. In real life, it was very difficult to break even, never mind turn a profit, as a Purser in the navy. Lambdin makes the ship's purser in the first few books an actually decent human being, who goes out of his way to help Lewrie without any thought of reward. And to top it off, he names the guy Cheatem

So yeah, tl;dr version: There's a lot of Naval Historical Fiction out there. Dewey Lambin is awesome, and you should go out and read The King's Coat as well. He makes it fun.

Also, the movie, Master & Commander, takes stuff from like 5 books in the series, and is well worth watching (it doesn't spoil anything, really). Even though I always envisioned Aubrey and Maturin as kinda like a battle-scarred John Goodman and Steve Buscemi, the relationship between the two is well done. And after reading the books, the minor characters will just pop out at you. Killick's surliness, Bonden's skill, Padeen's mute gentleness, Awkward Davie's scariness, etc.

I just want to point out that at his heaviest when Stephen is lambasting Jack for his weight he comes in at ~16 stone which is 224 lbs which isn't that huge for an athletic 6 footer.

At his more normal 14 stone (196 lbs) he would probably be pretty close to what he was portrayed as in the movie.

Keep in mind that this was happening at the time when being tubercular/pallidly emaciated was the height of genteel manliness. Kinda like with hipsters now. So burly Jack Aubrey, ruddy cheeked and lion maned, was not really on the avant-garde of fashion. Stephen, being of Iberian extraction and furthermore being of the gaunt intellectual variety so prevalent among the dismal swamps of Dublin, was always concerned that Jack would suffer from overheating and apoplexy. In a sense though, this constant harping was simply O'Brian's method of making sure the reader did not forget that Jack WAS this beefy guy who would fatten up when sitting about on land or on blockade.

It's interesting that while the Aubrey-Maturin novels are better, in my mind, as a series than the Hornblower books, there is no stand alone spectacular read.

Ha ha, I saw that too! As for port wine, it really depends on what you get. It is fairly sweet, that's why it was drunk after dinner, with nuts or after pudding. Good port wine is incredible, long finish with a lot of complex flavors-chocolate, dark fruits, nutty flavors, tobacco-excellent stuff with a cigar or after a satisfying meal.

So, does Maturin's opiate addiction serve as a specific character trait simply for means of moving the plotline or is it more of a foundation of his character?

As far as I remember, he gets hooked on a few other things, most notably to chewing coca leaves.

It is a foundation of his character, a means to deal with his inability of attaining Diana's love (note how he goes into thousands of drops a night when things look hopeless in this regard, and is nearly off the drug when everything goes fine).

But yeah, he's always addicted to something, cocoa leaves being the most benign of his drugs.

Assuming we're talking about Coca leaves (as opposed to Cocoa leaves, which are different)... chewing the leaves themselves is a stimulant, and has been used by Native Americans in South America as a tradition since times immemorial. It also cuts down on nausea when you're going up and down the Andes.

And Cocaine comes from the Coca plant through some process I don't really know about.

I will admit though that for the most part I greatly prefer the parts when they are at sea to when they are on land (though there are some great land based chapters, like when Jack is on the run from creditors and the crew is beating the crap out of people sent to take him to debtors prison). The stuff on land just tends to drag compared to the awesomeness of O'Brian's descriptions of life at sea.

At first I reacted the same as you to the long dry stretches () between the voyages.

Now I've read the series for my 3rd time, and I really enjoyed the detailed descriptions of life and society in the country - because O'Brian is as spot on with those as he is with the nautical stuff.

This is one of the strong points of the series: it's not only about ships and battles, it's about the life of seamen in 18th/19th century england.

Maybe it's because I saw and fell in love with the movie first, but I can't help but picture Jack Aubrey as Russell Crowe. He's just so uniquely suited to play the part. Just like JA, he's an expert when he's in his element (acting) but everything else in his life is a complete mess.

"But there was no sleeping; the echoing crash of the hammer right next to his ear, ludicrously followed by the sound of whispering between the carpenter and his mates, made certain of that."

I have never run across a writer who so excelled at mise en scene. Such spare prose, yet so very, very rich and engrossing.

I had read maybe four of the books before I saw the movie, and I too now picture him looking like Russell Crowe. I'm not a big fan of him otherwise, but he just pulled the role off so well that I can't help it.

In other news; I just finished "Post Captain" from my local library, but thought it ended rather abruptly. Anyway, it turns out that the swedish translation is split up into two separate volumes, for some reason. So, now I have to hope that the library has the second part as well.

As for the book itself, so far I like it. On one hand, Aubrey and Maturin spends alot more time on land than on a ship and I'm not sure how I feel about that. On the other hand, the new characters such as Diana Villiers and Mr. Canning are pretty interesting and I hope to see more of them. I also loved the part when, during the temporary peace between England and France, Aubrey has dinner with Christy-Palliére and the latter gets a message that a mysterious individual has been snooping around. Anyway, Aubrey deduces that this guy is Maturin and finds it extremely funny that the french suspects the harmless doctor of being a spy.

As for "Post Captain", O'Brian has stated that the "English countryside" portion of the novel is his homage to Jane Austen. Most of the rest of the series is, in general, much more nautically oriented...and even the periods which transpire on land are war-themed.

From a personal perspective, I utterly love these books, even though it DID take me a little while to get into them. I can completely sympathize with the poster who said that it was initially a slog. M&C was definitely the hardest one, just from the difficulty of orienting myself to O'Brian's prose style. Once you get used to it, though, things open up dramatically. The first time I reread M&C I was amazed at how much nuance I had missed with my initial read, because I was concentrating so hard on understanding what was going on that the subtler stuff went right over my head. This is absolutely a series that rewards multiple readings.

Oddly enough, I still think my favorite passage in the series is from M&C, when Jack and Stephen are talking about the harshness of hanging a man for buggery. First time that O'Brian made me literally burst out laughing.
