current mood: chipper

You know I love this part of the book.  LOVE IT.  There's just something sick and twisted in me about the way I love to see my hero suffer and recover to live and smile and say things like "God help sailors on a night like this" in a joking manner to make the love of his life his captain feel better. 

There are just so many wonderful things about this section, namely:

In those days, too, he had never known the freedom of his own quarterdeck, and had never tasted the unbounded liberty -- the widest freedom on earth -- of being a captain of a ship.
Boy, Hornblower is up a creek.Collapse )

Thoughts? Comments? What took your fancy about these chapters?

On Ship of the Line, section 1.Collapse )

And as a final note: am I on crack to think that the stories of HH joining the Navy don't line up? In this part of SotL, there's talk about how he has 22 years of seagoing experience. If he really joined in 1793, as MMH holds out, that puts SotL at 1815. Which, um. Yeah. We know it's not.

The real moral of this is that PINEAPPLES ARE THE FRUIT OF LOVE AHAHAHA :D :D :D
