- Mr Midshipman Easy by Marryat, Captain;
There are a few passionate kisses. One lieutenant is so large that he and his equally obese wife have trouble sharing their bed. Stronger oaths are referred to, but not written out.
There is a humorous instance wherein an officer is forced to return to his ship without his trousers, having had them stolen from him. Conclusion From the Austen-like opening lines to the satisfying charm of the concluding paragraphs, this lively tale kept me fascinated and amused.
Easy's coming-of-age journey is a joy to observe, and the exploits of his fellow seamen are alternately breathtaking and hilarious. Also I was thrilled to discover that before he became an author Captain Marryat had served with distinction in the Napoleonic Wars - as did Mr. Midshipman Easy himself.
