C.S. Forester Ì 1 READ READ ¿ Mr Midshipman Hornblower Horatio gets his sea legs proves his mettle and shows the makings of the legend he will become is the first of the eleven swashbuckling Hornblower tales that are today regarded as classic adventure stories of the s. So this is actually a preuel written many years after Horatio Hornblower first took the stage and even after he had become one of England s most famous heroes But I ve decided to read these in chronological order and I m uite glad that I did In this book Horatio is a very young midshipman although not as young as the wealthy and titled lads who take up that position He s been given his first commission aboard the Justinian where he immediately becomes known as the midshipman who got seasick while still anchored at port He s introverted awkward gangly and a bit of a math nerd However what makes Horatio s fumbles so incredibly enjoyable is the tangible affection that CS Forester so obviously feels for him You can really feel Forester s warmth and humor as Horatio contemplates suicide with all the drama of a seventeen year old or disguises his skinny calves with a bit of wood and some plaster or gets flustered by a uestionable DuchessAnd then there are the little glimpses of Hornblower the leader the man who should not be trifled with These are even enjoyable Underneath all that skinny awkwardness lies a daring brave and rigidly honorable man I ve listened to a few author narrated audiobooks recently and while they weren t terrible and were also undoubtedly authentic in terms of the author s vision this audiobook really reminded me of how much I love a skilled professional narrator The narrator for this audiobook is amazing with voices accents and inflections I highly recommend this on audioPerfect Musical PairingBob Dylan When the Ship Comes InYes I know that this is a metaphorical ship coming in But still I think that this song is a bit about revenge but also a bit about the inevitability of social growth and changeI found myself very amused by Hornblower s unuestioning participation in government sanctioned kidnapping press gangs or piracy privateering and the casual racism that he applies to both the French and Spanish sailors even as he looks on the practice of using galley slaves with disgust But near the end of the book he seems to become open minded and level headed So there Even in a metaphorical sense this song appliesAnd in a literal sense obviously Yay for high seas adventures

C.S. Forester Ì 1 READ READ ¿ Mr Midshipman Hornblower The year is 1793 the eve of the Napoleonic Wars and Horatio Hornblower a seventeen year old boy unschooled in seafaring and the ways of seamen is ordered to board a French merchant ship and take command of crew and. When I was growing up my Mom who doubled as the village librarian URGED me to read this book I m sure she saw in me a little Midshipman HornblowerShy standoffish and predisposed to dumb clumsiness I obviously needed the role model of a misfit like I was who would bloom under the rigours of his first commandBut I was averse to authoritarian posturingLater though I would be plunged into the thick of it as Head Boy of our new high school Popularity Not a chance Looks A blank on that score too I was a bit overweight and ungainly But dumb luck has doggedly plodded close behind me all my long lifeAnd besides when I was a kid I was much intent on doing what the other kids liked to do have fun and joke aroundWhen I finally picked up this book nearly 60 years later I was as unfit as ever to read it for a different reasonYou see I ve always believed in adulthood that virtue and not swagger and a strutting attitude yields the best rewards I ve seen too many intellectual flyweights and moral midgets assume the reins of command in my long career and through their draconian attitudes fake the whole thing passably enoughThat s the strong and unpleasant impression I got from Hornblower s first acts after being promoted particularly in the flintlock duel sceneSo when I reread this Horatio I decided not to Friend you DNFHowever it s a wonderfully well written book and a good yarn and you know what After reading Jason Koivu s beautiful five star review here on GR I ve decided to someday if I get the chance revisit itSo why s that Well back in the times when I was similarly in command of a group of office workers I led by intuition and not by will much like the young untried ordinary seaman HornblowerSo his embarrassing moments reminded me too much of my ownToo many folks I know have corrupted their youth early on with the strategy of power its dark secrets veiled in a tedious argument of insidious intent to lead their hapless victims to an overwhelming uestion and force their hands For what indeed is our Ingenuous Youth if not a series of embarrassments which includes a hearty helping of humiliation at the hands of these corrupt early bloomersAnd what is presence but continually weathering the storms seeded by these conniving cognoscenti ad infititumFor into such dark checkmates were the plans of the moral flyweights I knew in my early career intended to lead their victimsSo we Ingenuous Ones have no choice but to keep dancingBut I see in Jason s review that his character develops what used to be called presence that same confidence in himself to which I was only a newcomer in my late middle ageAnd if Hornblower and I turn out to be dancing to the same sheet of music it will be worthwhile to revisit this bookSo dear readers Please consider this review as very much a Work in Progress
