Description of Book:
Only movie to win an academy award - it got two! - the year Lord of the Rings came out, Master and Commander is what happens when you combine Pirates of the Caribbean with Gladiator. Based on the bestselling novels by Patrick O’Brian, the story follows a British naval captain and his ships doctor on their hunt of a Dutch warship.
Intent of Session:
This wonderful series of books was showcased very well in the movie, which combines the plots of two and a half of the novels. If there’s interest, the group could start a stream to read through the series. More generally, discussion on the life and times of a Napoleonic sailor, the brutality of what was considered top of the line medicine, and the early days of natural philosophy and how the Galápagos Islands were only just being discovered.
