My library didn t have this when I started reading the series so I wound up reading Lieutenant Hornblower the second book chronologically before this There was uite a difference in the two books Where Lieutenant was pretty much one long story with a short bit tacked on to the end Midshipman jumps from one short adventure to another like a frog on a hot road but I liked both Reading them out of order wasn t a huge deal although I would have preferred to read them in chronological order will do so from now on I have all 11 booksHornblower is a really interesting hero He s not physically perfect He s tough as nails but shy skinny prone to seasickness clumsiness He s fairly smart does his best thinking with real problems under life threatening circumstances but most of all he has a very rigid code of honor holds true to it He never prevaricates even to himself this series of adventures shows off the entire young manHornblower is rather offhand about the many hardships a sailor faced in the British Navy of the early 1800 s I thought back to my Army days tried to put it in perspective Each man had 22 to hang his hammock Imagine that for a moment That s about shoulder width that s the room they had not only to sleep in but to get in out of the bloody thing Suddenly my WWII barracks with rows of bunk beds seemed uite spaciousWhy so little room Forester mentions 300 men on a frigate space issues in several places What s a frigate how big is it I looked around a little guess it was about 135 long x 40 wide Tough to tell since the term seems to have covered a lot of different types sizes Figure 2 decks the math shows that each man had 36 suare feet a 6 x6 area without allowing for any superstructure bracing tapering cannon supplies or anything else which may well have eaten up a lot of the room Oh my Tight uarters indeed especially for voyages of months They might have room in a grave Even with all the fresh sea air I imagine the smell was enough to knock a vulture over Barely mentioned are the latrines which weren t really as such They were an area with ropes strung off the side of the ship They swung out over the ocean with their trousers down hung on while they did their business no matter what the weather was like UghFood water are mentioned a few times Do NOT look it up It s enough to gag a maggot And there were rats Yet Hornblower likes the sea life It s beyond imagining Shore life must have been dismal indeed It makes the adventures hardships that he willingly endures far believable I m still uite entranced by the series will continue to listen to it It s very well read a perfect mediumThe full series in Published Order1 The Happy Return 1937 aka Beat to uarters2 The Ship of the Line 19383 Flying Colours 19384 The Commodore 1945 aka Commodore Hornblower5 Lord Hornblower 19466 Mr Midshipman Hornblower 19507 Lieutenant Hornblower 19528 Hornblower and the Atropos 19539 Admiral Hornblower in the West Indies 195710 Hornblower and the Hotspur 196211 Hornblower and the Crisis 1967 aka Hornblower During the Crisis partial unfinished novel12 Hornblower Addendum 2011Hornblower One More Time contains 3 short stories Hand of Destiny Charitable Offering aka The Bad Samaritan Hornblower and His MajestyHornblower Addendum Five Stories 2011 is 5 adventures of Horatio Hornblower two as Lieutenant two as Captain and one as Admiral of the FleetThe Hornblower Companion is an atlas with brief descriptons should be read along with the booksHornblower Chronology From Wikipedia other sourcesSS Short Story1 Mr Midshipman Hornblower Jan 1794 Mar 179814 Hornblower and the Hand of Destiny SS 1798 need to find15 Hornblower and the Big Decision Temptation or Widow McCool SS 17992 Lieutenant Hornblower May 1800 Mar 18033 Hornblower and the Hotspur Apr 1803 Jul 18054 Hornblower and the Crisis aka Hornblower During the Crisis Aug 1805 Dec 1805 partial unfinished novel5 Hornblower and the Atropos Dec 1805 Jan 18086 The Happy Return aka Beat to uarters Jun 1808 Oct 18087 The Ship of the Line May 1810 Oct 181075 Hornblower s Charitable Offering aka The Bad Samaritan SS Jun 18108 Flying Colours Nov 1810 Jun 181185 Hornblower and His Majesty SS 18129 The Commodore aka Commodore Hornblower Apr 1812 Dec 181210 Lord Hornblower Oct 1813 Jun 181411 Admiral Hornblower in the West Indies May 1821 Oct 1823115 The Last Encounter SS Nov 1848The Point and the Edge is a brief outline of a storyThe Wikipedia entry for the series has a lot of good information but careful of spoilers There is a table listing all the books stories with both the UKUSA published names dates plus the chronological dates movies other stuffSee Joy s review for movies

I ve got really strong memories of enjoying the Hornblower TV movies of the late 90 s so seemed like another perfect book series to get started with I d decided to read these in chronological orderWhilst there is a slight preuel feel to these adventures it s definitely the best place to startSeeing young 17 year old Hornblower s inexperience helps the reader to understand the nautical terms with ease and get a greater sense of the late Eighteenth Century settingI definitely could sympathise with his seasicknessThere s a real short story collection vibe to this volume with some parts interesting than othersBut ultimately it s seeing the young Horatio grow throughout the tales that makes this a great adventures novel
