Book Thoughts: Flying Colours by C.S. Forester

Flying ColoursFlying Colours by C.S. Forester
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the third book (in order written) of the Horatio Hornblower series. The series is a beautifully designed Easton Press edtion (not shown). It is an 11 books series that can be read in chronological order or in order written. I have chosen the latter.

This book is much more about what's going on in Hornblower's mind than it is in action. Forester has a excellent way of writing about this and you get to know Hornblower even more and the struggles he faces in his current situation and contemplating his future and that of his two companions.
