Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0393309061, Paperback)Shipwrecked! When Captain Aubrey and his crew go aground on a remote island, they labor to construct a seaworthy schooner from the wreckage (taking breaks, of course, to play cricket.) Their subsequent adventures lead them to the dreaded penal colony at Botany Bay, and then, as always, back to sea.

In The nutmeg of consolation, O'Brian reconstructs a civilisation on the foundations of a friendship. O'Brian reminds us that times change, not people, and that the griefs and follies of our predecessors are maps of our own lives.
