Rather long (41 Chapters & not all of them are short!). Starts with the birth of John Easy, who becomes a Midshipman because he thinks that the equality of man can be found at sea! ( )

At second reading it is still a good book, perhaps a little unbelievable all these things happening to one guy in so short a time. But still fun, and the moral does give one pause. ( )

This amusing story is in the nature of a romp. The turn of phrase is sometimes hilarious, unfortunately the adventures are so outlandish that they begin to pall after a while. This was a free Kindle book; it was worth the time I invested in it, and it yielded some enjoyable chuckles and outright laughs. I doubt I will reread it. ( )

"Marryat, of course, must be represented, and I should pick " Midshipman Easy" and "Peter Simple" as his samples." --Through the Magic Door, p. 241
