Hornblower and the Atropos by C. S. Forester

Find in catalogI picked up this book on one of the “Read and Return” racks at the Eugene Public Library. It is #4 in the Hornblower saga. Horatio is now a captain and is given the Atropos, a lively frigate to command. Horatio lives up to his reputation as a swashbuckler and saves the day more than once with his intelligence and daring yet calculated decisions. He is ever observant of those around him and his situation and more than a little self-critical, making him quite human and an appealing character. He is one of those who becomes a hero because the choice is to either try to succeed or suffer the consequences of in-action. A good adventure and escape to another place and time. Happy reading!
