Finished the Aubrey/Maturin series

I finished Patrick O'Brian Aubrey/Maturin series this July 4th weekend, closed book number 20(!) and felt a lump in my throat. It was such a pleasure to read. I highly recommend it.

It's one thing where the characters age during the course of a book; it's another where they grow older slowly book after book, each continuing to face their own challenges and failures. If anything, the books teach a lively persistence in the face of a changing life and world full of hard knocks.

I'll try to slow down and just think now, take a break from reading. I hope to have some Sharpcast API stuff out to the world this summer.
