The Ionian Mission Reviews


'... full of the energy that comes from a writer having struck a vein... Patrick O'Brian is unquestionably the Homer of the Napoleonic wars.' James Hamilton-Paterson 'You are in for the treat of your lives. Thank God for Patrick O'Brian: his genius illuminates the literature of the English language, and lightens the lives of those who read him.' Kevin Myers, Irish Times 'I envy those who have never read Patrick O'Brian: an enormous pleasure awaits you.' Irish Times 'The Ionian Mission is witty, funny, erudite and exciting...a triumph' Helen Lucy Burke, Irish Press 'Cemented over the years and across seven seas by good writing and good humour, the friendship between surgeon and intelligence agent Maturin and that lion-in-action and ass ashore, Jack Aubrey, may yet rank with Athos/D'Artagnan or Holmes/Watson as part of the permanent literature of adventure.' Stephen Vaughan, Observer
