Brilliance in Disgrace!
A very enjoyable read!
Yes I would recommend this audiobook to a friend because if is a good story nicely written, factually good fun and creates a believable picture of life in a wooden wall navy.
It was different to any other naval fiction I have read.
Easy listening and good, believable vocal characterisation
The book in it's entirety moved me to collect the set.
I am now collecting the set and have so far bought another 6 books and am listening to them in order.
