Summary

One of the first novel-length pieces of nautical fiction, MR. MIDSHIPMAN EASY (1836) is a funny and easygoing account of the adventures of Jack Easy, a son of privilege who joins the Royal Navy. The work begins as a satire on Jack’s attachment to “the rights of man” that may try the listener’s patience. But despair not, for the story soon settles down as the philosophical midshipman begins his many triumphs over bullies, foul weather, and various damned foreigners of murderous intent.Caveat audiens: This novel employs racial/ethnic epithets and religious stereotypes, as well as taking a rather sunny view of supply-side economics. In short, there's something here to offend almost everyone.Frederick Marryat (1792-1848) entered the Royal Navy as a 14-year-old midshipman. He resigned his commission at the rank of captain after 24 years of service to devote his time to writing.

Reviews

SuGe

- Mr. Midshipman Easy

It was an excellent story read by an excellent reader....until Chapter 16 then it stopped dead and refused to respond....would have liked to have heard the rest.

- Mr Midshipman Easy

Adrian Praetzellis does an excellent job of narrating an entertain 'yarn'. Will particularly interest those inclined to all things nautical and philosophical.

- Mr. Midshipman Easy

Adrian Praetzellis narrates this wonderfully. A very enjoyable book. Marryat has a fresh style of writing that never sounds dated.
