The farther I get into the Lewrie series, the more annoying become a few of Lambdin’s peculiar writing habits. His work is generally literate, and his characterization good, until he insists on his characters drawling, sneering or snapping their dialog. This is a capital error in nearly all fiction, where “said,” or even nothing at all (if context suffices) is preferable. Similarly, Lambdin curiously repeats words in succeeding sentences or even the same phrase, using them in different contexts, almost mirroring the dreaded zeugma.
Repeated annoyances like this spoil what is otherwise a very good, and historically accurate, series of novels. I would like to see Mr. Lambdin take a bit more careful control of his dialog and description. Or, aren’t there any editors left who can help with this kind of thing? I realize that it’s a bit late in the game to hope for any of this, but better late than never?
Jester’s Fortune audiobook in series Alan Lewrie
Like Dewey Lambdin’s previous books, this tale takes British Naval Commander Alan Lewrie into an area seldom covered by other novels related to this historical period. Commander Lewrie takes Jester into the Adriatic as part of a naval squadron sent to intercept French trade. The book provides a good account of the situation, including the troubles between ethnic and religious groups in the area. The present troubles in the Balkans are taken back 200 years, with the Serbs as the villains, and background material on some of the origins. With graphic descriptions of atrocities, this is not a children’s book. The account is interspersed with details of Napoleon’s campaigns in Italy and his rise to power. An old love of Lewrie’s reappears, along with a couple of old school chums from Harrow, and a new woman leads him into temptation while he is far from home and family.
I think the Alan Lewrie series is the best of the Historical Naval fiction of the period. It is more entertaining than Forester or “Kent” and is more realistic as far as the characters. Jester was a replacement of a lost copy. I always order the next as soon as you post it and have a collection of all in first edition. I usually reread the series to finish in time for the new release.
Audiobook Jester’s Fortune by Richard Stark
I am a HUGE Dewey Lambdin fan, own all his books, and even hunted down out-of-print copies for my library a few years back before they all became available. But I found Jester’s Fortune to be a big disappointment. The setting and location are interesting, and as usual Mr. Lambdin has done his homework on the history. But almost nothing happens in the first 280 pages! The last 80 pages are typical of both Lambdin and Lewrie, and were fun and exciting. But it took me almost a month to wade through the first 280, as it never held my interest.
Still, if you’ve read the rest of the series, you’ll want to read this too. (Is that faint enough praise?) Three stars ONLY because the ending was good. Otherwise two.
Audio Jester’s Fortune narrated by John Chancer
This latest tale in the naval career of Alan Lewrie is better than its predecessors and I thoroughly enjoyed those. This yarn places Lewrie in the Adriatic as a member of a squadron that finds Allies hard to find. Scraping the barrel they find themselves allied with a bunch of pirates and it was never going end well. The twists and turns of the plot leave you guessing as to what kind of disaster is going to end this agreement to sup with the devil and still leaves you guessing as to whether the spoon was long enough even at the end. No doubt we’ll find out in book nine and I personally cannot wait.

I have now read all the Alan Lewrie books that are available on Amazon and I find them a good light read. As a fan of the sea and sea stories this is entertaining the author has developed the character and I find the historical detail very interesting. As a keen sailor I lake the sailing explanation which is pretty good. Some reviewers have compared this series to Patrick O’Brian I am not sure that its fair comparison but if you like O’Brian I am sure you will enjoy this although I would recommend reading them in order
