That five books in to the series an author can still suprise and create a world with such detail and specificity and can still develop characters without becoming cliched or worn continues to impress me. The series is occupying most of my spare time, such is the way in which my imagination has been captured by O'Brian's writing. The series gets my highest recommendations.
Patrick O'Brian, Desolation Island. I'm only five books into this series, but I must declare that I love these books like I love ice water on the beach, or hot chocolate with a warm blanket on a Fall night. Rarely do I find a writer that amazes and seduces me with his/her technical skill, prose, poetry, and sense of humanity. Patrick O'Brian, Desolation Island. I'm only five books into.

Better than The Unknown Shore (the other O'Brian novel that I've read), though both closely follow what I suspect is the author's formula: a chapter or two or preparation, followed by a chapter of sea.

In "Desolation Island", Patrick O'Brian begins what can be considered a miniseries within the larger arc of his Aubrey/Maturin Novels. This miniseries continues through "Fortune of War", and is concluded in "The Surgeon's Mate". It is preceeded by the stand alone "Mauritius Command". O'Brian's shipboard characterizations are further deepened. Jack's brief recollection of how the sailors once convinced young Babbington he was pregnant is a howl. And it is a throw away idea caught in a brief paragraph. O'Brian seems to have an infinite supply of nuance and human insight.
