Shelves: fiction , historical-fiction Adventures from the Age of Fighting Sail is a favorite genre of mine. It has been quite awhile since I have picked up a sea adventure and I was in the mood. Having nothing readily available except Adventures from the Age of Fighting Sail is a favorite genre of mine. Having nothing readily available except a Hornblower I thought that would just have to do. First, most of the suspense involved in the story centers on the perils of the sea and not naval combat.

If the reader has little or no familiarity with the technicalities of sailing especially the intricacies of sailing large vessels then much of this suspense will be lost. The author virtually coats the pages with naval jargon and terminology with little or no explanation. My fondness for this form of fiction has forced me to do independent research to better understand the actions being described. I have never sailed and did not know what most of these terms mean but have acquired some limited understanding but this book still went beyond me.

Aside from the heavy reliance on seamanship there is still a modest story with relatively good character development. He has realistic career setbacks and a marriage that he regrets but is honor bound to support and nourish.
