Wednesday reading: Hornblower

I said this before but I’ll say it again–I love Horatio Hornblower.

C.S. Forster didn’t appeal to me because I didn’t like “The African Queen” (the book, I mean; I like the movie). But then I started reading the Hornblower books and there is just nothing like it. They’re sort of adventure novels (you know, on the high seas and all that), but so realist. I recommend them wholeheartedly. And I think Hornblower himself is a great character.
