    One thought on “Sea of Grey

    1. Aspen Junge on said:

      I read the entire series largely back-to-back (my local public library is well-stocked). One of the great things about this series is that we get to watch Alan Lewrie, the main character, grow up from a callow, self-indulgent teenager to a mature, thoughtful, and responsible adult.

    2. Jim on said:

      This is the 10th of the Alan Lewrie series of naval adventures that take place in the late 18th/early 19th centuries. Lewrie is still captain of the HMS Proteus, one of the British navy's newest frigates. Lewrie's amorous and frolicking past comes to haunt him when an unidentified individual writes his wife Caroline, advising her of many of Lewrie's sexual escapades overseas. So much for Lewrie's marriage, although divorce is out of the question since at the end of the 18th century, it requires [...]

      There are not enough quotation marks in the english language to serve Mr Lambdin's inscrutable purposes. After the first few pages, I expected they would begin to disappear as arcane seafaring jargon and military terms were defined. However, the author does not treat his readers as nearly intelligent enough to "get" his meanings: exactly how many times does the word "nutmegs" need to be enclosed before we understand that he is speaking about a man's "testes"?As a lover of the Aubrey-Maturin cano [...]

      That this book's slut protagonist is supposed to help in the racist oppression & enslavement of the islanders is in itself outrageously offensive: it's exactly like an Italian helping Hitler to repress Jewish resistance. . . as an adventurous lark, at that. It's to be expected that Americans would gloss over this as unimportant, as it has been their typical response since the brutally racist founding of their ill-gotten country.As usual, we can count on you to kick us in the face, when we're [...]

      I suppose it is inevitable that Lewrie's ram-catting finally caught up with him and it was a fairly spectacular showing. It will be interesting to see who the person is who wrote those letters. Anyway, this is a decent addition to the series. And only minimal use of "mine arse on a bandbox" this time.

    6. Paul on said:

      Another great read in this series following the escapades of Alan Lewrie through his sexpoits, the Royal Navy and the closing stages of the 18th century.Highly recommended. Subject portrays some 21st century traits which probably wouldn't have been an issue in the time period (slavery being one) but I think it adds to the enjoyment.Start at number 1 and give them a whirl.

      Capt Lewrie sails again!Another top-notch sea tale from Dewey Lambdin! A rip-roaring tale of the sea recommended to fans of the Aubrey-Maturin series by Patrick O'Brian.
