Want to talk about MASTER AND COMMANDER?

Chat about Patrick O'Brian with me today at 4:30 PM EST (3:30 CST, 1:30PST, 11:30AM Hawaii time, 10:30PM CET -- is that everybody?). Look for the link over here.

(This is what my copy looks like, displaying the episode in the book where the "Sophie" is menaced by Russell Crowe's ginormous head and epic seriousface.)

I listened this book on audio last year, but I am afraid I won't be getting up at 5 a.m. Beijing time to discuss it live. I did enjoy looking over the posts about it, though.

I'm a card-carrying O'Brian Obsessive! I've read all the Aubrey-Maturin series twice over and have listened to Patrick Tull read all of them...well, I can't count; I finish the last sentence of Blue At The Mizzen and just start over. If my iPod's attached to my ear, it's O'Brian or nothing. Beautiful language, the richest of characters...how much space have you got for my commentary? When I can't bear this twenty-first century, I rest myself in O'Brian.
