Book Review: The Far Side of the World by Patrick O’Brian


Author: Patrick O’Brian
Title: The Far Side of the World
Publication Info: Prince Frederick, MD : Recorded Books ; [United States : Distributed by] Borders, [2003], p1994.
ISBN1402540922
Summary/Review:  The tenth book of the Aubrey/Matrin series finds the HMS Surprise rounding Cape Horn and sailing the Pacific in search of an American ship harassing whalers, the Norfolk.  This book is one of the main sources for the film Master and Commander: Far Side of the World although there are some huge differences.  I have to say I liked the movie better although I usually like the one I saw/read first.
