Master and Commander

Aubrey/Maturin Series 1

决定开始看这个系列很偶然。几年前的russel crowe的电影上演的时候我们还是去影院看的。当时发现是根据很popular的系列书浓缩改变的。当时看了一下并没有足够的热情开始看。最近在goodreads上面accept了一个stranger的connection request, 他在大量热情的读military related novels, 其中就包括这个系列。我的兴趣一下子又被钩起来了。for some reason, 立刻就开始了。

这个第一本看起来是有困难的。主要是sailing的术语太多,很多描写海战的部分,都不知道他们在干什么,为什么干这些事情,为什么干了这些事情之后对战局造成了这样或者那样的影响。所以有点干瞪眼白着急的意思。

但是我还是坚持了下来,因为这个书四处洋溢着promise: a promising writer with piercing insights, a long story with gripping plot twists, two intriguing characters with strong lure for me to know more about their lives. 所以我就坚持了下来。

简直是best decision of the year (or the year of tiger since i read it in january mostly). 因为后面两本简直好看死了。这本,回头看,其实有点跟后面的分得比较开,好像都可以独立出来似的,后面的人物发展上面要多很多功夫。这本主要是打仗。

但是打仗是很揪心的。尤其是看第一本的时候。因为还不大了解海战的规矩,所以觉得很奇怪Jack怎么能这么好战呢。他不怕打输了船沉了淹死吗。要是换做我,全凭先天直觉的话,(就是没有后天教化什么国家民族利益个人名利的重要之类的),肯定见到比我大的船比我炮多的船,立马儿跑掉啊。所以我才喜欢看小说,看军事小说,看其他勇敢的人们怎么handle their problems,不然看我自己就行了:)
