Folio Society THE FAR SIDE OF THE WORLD by Patrick OBrian Set against the sprawling canvas of the Napoleonic Wars, Patrick OBrians naval adventure novels evoke this period like no others. The Folio Society has published all 20 books featuring Captain Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin as they take to the seas in Europe, South America and the Indies. The brilliance of the series is due to OBrians extraordinary knowledge of the rituals and conventions in Georgian society and skill at creating thrilling set-pieces of naval skirmishes and battles. Each of the Folio Society editions has a different cloth-bound binding design and include pages of period illustrations as well as specially redrawn maps and battle plans. In The Far Side of the World the war of 1812 continues, and Jack Aubrey sets course for Cape Horn on a mission after his own heart: intercepting a powerful American frigate outward bound to play havoc with the British whaling trade.Stephen Maturin has fish of his own to fry in the world of secret intelligence. Disaster in various guises awaits them in the Great South Sea and in the far reaches of the Pacific: typhoons, castaways, shipwrecks, murder, and criminal insanity. Full of the energy that comes from a writer having struck a vein Patrick O'Brian is unquestionably the Homer of the Napoleonic wars.
