The Patrick O'Brian books

I just finished reading the Patrick O'Brian Aubrey-Maturin series.

It's Royal Navy, time of the Napoleonic Wars.
20 books, 6000 pages, 21 actually although the last book entitled "21" is just an unfinished manuscript.
Some people call them the greatest historical fiction ever written.
I was blown away, he is an excellent story teller, who develops his characters in depth.
Very entertaining.

Any fans here?
Thanks from LongWinded
