    I read this in my early teens I didn t expect to like it but I loved it and ended up reading the whole series of books This classic book is well written and I would recommend for any adventurous young person aged say 11 adult ish Especially if they have an interest in sailing, the sea, the forces services, leadership, or even career progression but even if they don t Hornblower is an excellent model for young people to follow, he is responsible, clever, principled, disciplined, descent but also exhibits imagination flare, he is bold and brave but modest, honest, fair and kind too He is a character that puts one clearly in mind of, perhaps, Britain s greatest hero, Horatio Nelson.40 years on, he is still my role model
