I was about to comment (but thought I ought to read a bit further first) that I like thrillers, and hate Dickens for being too wordy with nothing happening. (Ditto to Jane Eyre, etc). I think that may be what's happening with Master and Commander. it's more wordy and slow.

So far, we've attached or saved 3 other ships, and Maturin has just had his private remenisence(sp?) with the other Irish chap, while minding the "other" ship.

I'll try a bit more before quitting.
