Master and Commander (Aubrey & Maturin, #1) by Patrick OBrianAs the Royal Navy takes part in the wars against Napoleonic France, young Jack Aubrey receives his first command, the small, old, and slow HMS Sophie.

I wish they had included them in the theatrical release. I hope this is an appropriate place to post them off Youtube. I can see why 'Weighing anchor' was cut: the men have their hands on the capstan bars the wrong way around. Should the capstan kick back, many broken wrists would result. In practice, men would hold the bars against their chests and grip the bars knuckles facing away from their bodies. After watching the first clip I was able to see the clip from the History Buffs and I'm glad they also think that it was fairly accurate. I hadn't seen either of these before.

Yet their friendship, which begins badly with them edging towards a duel as they argue at a concert on their first meeting, is the prime mover of a saga of some twenty completed novels. Weir and co-screenwriter John Collee bring this friendship to life by devising a largely original screen story focusing on Jack and Stephen. This is hardly surprising as The Far Side of the World , like every other entry in the series, is a picaresque affair. Weir, however, does take a number of elements directly from this book for the screenplay. This is the subtext to the whipping of Nagel, which as a result seems far more par for the course in the movie, whereas Jack remarks to Stephen in the novel how he hates ordering lashing nearly as much as Stephen abhors the entire institution. Even more interesting is how he takes almost random moments from the novel and weaves them together consequentially for his screen story. You have only to add marry , come up , or go to.
