Well, OK, 1'm sorry. I apologize to Dudley Pope. I had said some rather unkind things about one of his Ramage novels, based on an audiotape. To be fair I read another, Ramage and the Freebooters, and it's really quite entertaining. As with the C.S. Forester, Alexander Kent, and O'Brian series, this one is also set at sea during the Napoleonic War. Lieutenant Ramage, son of the disgraced admiral, is under a cloud himself for having performed some rather unorthodox maneuvers during the Battle of S [...]

Another fun, quick read. Sure, if you look for depth in your Age of Sail fiction, you should rather look to O'Brian or Forester. But if you're looking for a more swashbuckling approach to high adventure on the seas during the Napoleonic Wars, Ramage will deliver.This time I wasn't quite as taken with the plot as with the first two novels, this one not featuring as many action sequences and therefore appearing a bit more slow paced. However, this is not to mean that Ramage & the Freebooters w [...]

Great book in the Lord Ramage saga book three! Ramage hunts down (by the Kings order) privateers who are plundering the Kings shipping lanes!

I liked the series very much and will read all the books I can put my hands on. Also I am glad that Ramage does not get a promotion at the end of every book

My first time reading this author and although I can't say I have the same feeling of enchantment and enthrallment that I have when reading Patrick O'Brian and C.S. Forester, this is a pretty good effort. Ramage is presented not as some kind of demigod seagoing superhero but more of a flawed anti-hero in the mode of Horatio Hornblower. Pope has an excellent command of naval terminology as well as the details of early 19th-century history. A refreshing change of pace after reading a Borgia novel! [...]

This book begins with the mutiny at Spithead (historytoday/alex-bark), then proceeds to the Windward Islands. On the way there they encounter a slave ship, an excellent description is given. The story is exciting!

Much slower than the previous two books.

This is the best of Dudley Pope's novels yet in the Lord Ramage series. Pope's writing brings the reader right into the story - one can actually feel oneself in the action at sea, approaching Barbados after a cruise across the Atlantic and in the midst of fighting with pirates. This is a rollicking tales of sailing ships in the late 1790's.Lieutenant Ramage is assigned to a new brig - HMS Triton - at Spithead. Meanwhile the great mutiny of the British navy has already started at Spithead - the c [...]

Ramage’s first job is to get the Triton underway but surprise the crew has also mutinied alone with those of the homeport fleet. After delivering the message to the three fleets Ramage is to report [...]

The first of the Ramage books - all of which are exciting and well written. The Ramage series ranks 3rd with me behind Hornblower and Bolitho for age of sail excitement. Ramage is just a little too good and nothing is impossible

Good fun read. I enjoyed the plot of the first two books more but this one still makes you look forward to the next.

Great stories of Lt Ramage 'finding a way' of dealing with mutiny across the fleet and catching pirates/privateers . . .

This is a decent book but not good enough to keep me interested to the end, and I only read half of it.

I liked this book. To me this was a story that helps to set the characters in your mind. Now I can't wait to read the next installment of Ramage's adventure.

Dudley Pope's Ramage series beats Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin series by far!

Have enjoyed this series from the start. A rather more modern style Hornblower. The characters are developing nicely
