Review #1

I don’t synopsize the book in my reviews. All the more reason for you to read it! This book gets off to a slow start and there seems to be a significant effort at resolving some of the series’ dangling plot lines. Additionally, I could see Lambdin’s efforts at growing and developing the cast of characters on other ships and in other areas of Lewrie’s life in a single book. I get the impression from Lewrie’s growth, his most recent assignment, the state of his ship and his seniority that he is in for bigger and better things in the next book. Commanding a larger squadron? Perhaps a more permanent broad pennant? Who knows! This book is a good read and while it starts off slowly you get more of an intimate look at Lewrie’s human side. That’s different for Lewrie. We’re acquainted with his base desires and his thoughts of fulfilling his immediate psychological needs, the ones fairly low on Maslow’s Hierarchy but he’s moving to a higher point on Maslow’s chart, nearer to self-actualization. Much more human. Lambdin has steadily grown Lewrie over the entire series and it is wearing well on him. Lambdin’s characters and the series comprise one of my two favorite nautical series. I highly recommend the book and suggest to you that it is hours of entertainment for a paltry sum. If you’re one of the people who just found the series I recommend you start at the beginning and read them all. You won’t be disappointed.

Review #2

A Hard, Cruel Shore audiobook in series Parker

This third volume in which Alan Lewrie commands HMS Sapphire takes the rake-hell, neck-or-nothing character to a new level of maturity. He seems to have grown into his skin, is more comfortable with both his strengths and weaknesses, and leads (when required) with the confidence suitable to his age and experience. While the details of the land war so prevalent in the previous volume are missing, the text is richer, and the story takes some characters with whom we have shared these tales for many years to new challenges. Unfortunately, as authors do, for some characters their tales come to an end. Always hate when that happens. I always look forward to the next installment, but the anticipation this time is heightened as the author, too, seems to have come to a new level of story-telling, even more intoxicating than that to which we are accustomed. And what is going on with Sewallis?

Review #3

Audiobook A Hard, Cruel Shore by Richard Stark

“A Hard, Cruel Shore” is a fine addition to the Alan Lewrie series, now more than twenty books long. Author Dewey Lambdin layers on the details because that’s what novels used to do—anatomize entire societies and cultures rather than just individual psyches. It’s easy to lose oneself in these bountiful tales.

In this one, Captain Sir Alan Lewrie—deeply middle-aged, respectable, and yet still self-doubting—faces situations he can’t settle with a few broadsides. His father still begrudges him; the Admiralty has to be coaxed to keep his ship in service; a son, he learns, has slipped into manhood; a mistress has outgrown him; and maybe, just maybe, Alan might have another chance at love. Oh, and there’s a sea battle at the end as good as any Lambdin has written—and that’s saying a lot.

Review #4

Audio A Hard, Cruel Shore narrated by John Chancer

The latest episode in the Alan Lewrie series opens with the Captain convincing the Admiralty to keep his ship HMS Sapphire commissioned for another year–old and slow, the warship will eventually be sent to some much less glorious duty. But for now, Lewrie and the Sapphire are headed back to the northern Spanish coast to block supplies from getting to the French armies fighting Arthur Wellesley (the future Duke of Wellington).

While most of the action in the Peninsular War will be on land, Lewrie is destined to get involved in some fierce battles–one humdinger in this book. The action is skillfully described and will get the blood coursing for any fan of this genre.

Half of the novel is handed over to the details of the protagonist’s life: his family–one son in particular; his paramour and her complicated situation; relations with professional rivals; food and, of course, drink; and, last but not least, Lenrie’s pets–the ever-present Chalky the cat and Bisquit the ship’s dog. These are all the necessary “potatoes” that go with the “meat” that is comprised of the action sequences. All of it adds up to a fascinating life and its times. Let’s hope the series continues into the Victorian Age, at least.

This is less a review than a fan letter. I have read each one of the books in the series with anticipation in delight and have come to know the characters well. A Hard, Cruel Shore continues the saga of Alan Lewrie, his family and his shipmates. This time continuing his service in the waters off the coast of Spain. There is seamanship and action aplenty. As usual, as soon as I finished the last page, I began to look forward to the next book in the series. I have spent too many hours reading the work of Dewey Lambdin to be an objective reviewer, but as a fan, this installment continues to satisfy.
