The Hundred Days

The Hundred Days
Patrick O'Brian

For those who think people don't read like they used to, the success of Patrick O'Brian's wonderful Aubrey-Maturin novels must be inexplicable. Twenty volumes of highly technical (but delightful) prose. I'm doling out the last previous volumes as a special treat; now that my sister is out of the hospital, I thought it was time.
