Far Side of the World (Movie Tie In)/O'Brian, Patri/Paper/0007157878/S049-D2
'The greatest historical novelist of all time.' - The Times
It is the war of 1812. Patrick O'Brian takes his hero, Captain Jack Aubrey and his sardonic friend Stephen Maturin, ship's surgeon and secret agent, on a voyage as fascinating as he has ever written. They set course across the South Atlantic to intercept a powerful American frigate outward bound to play havoc with the British whaling trade. Aubrey has to cope with a succession of disasters - men overboard, castaways, encounters with savages, storms, typhoons, groundings, shipwrecks, to say nothing of murder and criminal insanity.
Packing all the excitement expected of Patrick O'Brian and all his legendary skill as a historical novelist, The Far Side of the World is now brought to life in a major motion picture by Peter Weir, and starring Russell Crowe and Paul Bettany.
