I’ve decided to pick up C.S. Forester’s Horatio Hornblower novels. I’m looking forward to them, and am preparing to have my buckle swashed!
After the first few books, Forster decided to write a few novels about his hero’s early naval career, then went back and wrote a few that jumped around a bit in Hornblower’s biography. This Wikipedia article lists the novels and short stories in both the order they were written, as well as according to the fictional chronology.
Has anyone here read them? If so, which order do you recommend?
