Which It's A Gratuitous Llama Book Recommendation, Innit?


I took along with me on my trip A Sailor of King George: The Journals of Captain Frederick Hoffman, RN, 1793-1814. If you're a Patrick O'Brian fan and are interested in some source material, this book is well worth reading. Although Captain Hoffman's understanding of how a paragraph should work is a little unorthodox, occassionally causing the reader a slight touch of whiplash, his prose style is generally both humerous and entertaining and his descriptions of life in the service - primarily on the West Indies Station - is quite fascinating.
