Staff Picks: Best Reads of 2013 (part 4)

Cal Maritime Library’s “best of” reading list for 2013 continues with a pick from our able Student Assistant, Connor Jonas. If you borrow his choice from the library, we bet you can’t read just one!

From Connor Jonas:


Post Captain by Patrick O’Brian

The Master and Commander series follow the exploits of the intrepid English Captain “Lucky” Jack Aubrey as he sails against the French in a desperate attempt to keep Napoleon from conquering all of Europe. Dr. Stephen Maturin is his ship’s surgeon and constant companion, and together they are a complex and fascinating pair. The series is all based on real battles, people, and events, and perfectly captures the spirit of Victorian England as the country fights a war that lasts a generation and spans the entire globe.
