Post Captain by Patrick O'Brian
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This entire book is so bleak and you really begin to feel for Capt. Aubrey. His reputation is trashed, he is on the run from the debtor's prison goons, and even his relationship with Stephen takes a bit of a beating. While it is not a "happy turn" it still gives some satisfaction in the end. I think the fact that there is still no magic fix given to our protagonist, the story holds just that extra bit of realism that makes this series so amazing.
