Hornblower is an old friend of mine who I have a long-standing affection for, and my rating reflects this, even though I admit they are hardly works of first class literature. Except, perhaps, for 'Lieutenant Hornblower'; the only book written not from Hornblower's point of view, but from that of Bush, it is on a higher literary plane than all the others, and a much more interesting and satisfying read.

After reading this book, I discovered that therse three books are not sequential. There are two books chronologically between Lieutenant Hornblower and Hornblower and the Atropos. This was my first experience with the Hornblower series. I recommend it as a good starting place, as long as you are aware that there is a subtantial time gap beween the second and third book in this omnibus
