    Personally, I prefer Simon Vance to Patrick Tull.  Early on I listened to one Aubrey/Maturin from each narrator and made my decision, but I have heard of others who prefer Tull.

    Gary, I found after six months, I could just start again and enjoy them, because now I knew the story and could savor the details. Then my wife noticed an audio from Recorded Books at the library and brought it home. The narrator, Patrick Tull, is superb - a different voice for each character and each voice perfect for the characters as I imagined them from the page.

    > Hello Hewitt,
    > Although I have read "The Mauritius Command" some time ago, I think that the overall geographical descriptions of Mauritius (and at times La Réunion?) Island(s) fairly match the truth, at least as regards the main features of Mauritius (e.g. with the "Morne Brabant being located on the south west part of the island" as I can remember, or details about the battle of Isle de la Passe with the Montagne du Lion).One of the colored pictures in the book I could read features a Vessel close to the rocky shore, with her Captain (?) in the fore front standing on black lava rock which seems exactly a picture taken from the south "wild coast" some place close to half-way between Mahébourg and Souillac.Best Regards,Kermit*****************************************************************************[NavList] Re: [NavList 22402] Re: sunrise observation.
