This, the conclusion of the Hornblower series, consists of 5 episodes taking place in the West Indies. Each of those adventures could almost stand on its own as a novelette. Like many other readers, I've followed Hornblower's exploits from his first days as a skinny, frightened 13-year-old midshipman, finally leaving him here at the age of 45, a knighted peer of the realm, widely honored and renowned, heading homeward to face genteel retirement at his estate. But even here in the final pages he encounters life-and-death adventures.
While this final book is not the best of the series, it still makes for enjoyable reading.
