Riassunto: A tale of an ill-fated ship on an expedition around the world. The Wager is driven onto rocks and sinks, leaving few survivors. Among the remaining supplies is a surplus of rum, and soon the survivors' lives deteriorate into days of drunkenness, mutiny and bloodshed. From the author of THE COMMODORE and THE IONIAN MISSION.
Recensione: The Unknown Shore, a sort-of sequel to The Golden Ocean, is a fascinating blue-print for the Aubrey-Maturin series. We follow Jack Byron and Tobias Barrow, two unlikely neighbors and fast friends in whom we catch glimpses of the heroes of the epic series to come. They set off to sea in 1740 as part of Commodore Anson's fleet to circumnavigate the globe. Byron, a romantic, forceful lad, signs on as a midshipman; Barrow, a strangely educated, scientifically brilliant boy, is running away from his father and wins a commission as a surgeon's mate. Set up in the Wager, which is parted from Anson's squadron and sinks somewhere along the desolate coast of Chile, Byron and Barrow are left to struggle for survival by wits alone, facing mutiny, famine, indifferent natives and lingering infighting. A fully realized hint of the fictional magic to come.
