Subject: RE: Help: Patrick O'Brian's Desolation Island
The 10th book is The Far Side of the World. Here's that website, with Our Russel in Alan Ladd mode (i.e. standing on a box!), and the lad, chatting. How's this for faultless philosophy:
Crowe said he was not overly concerned about maintaining fidelity to O'Brian's canon. If something works better on the screen, then so be it. "The way I figure it, Patrick O'Brian is dead," Crowe said. "And anyway, we're making a movie here."

PS That's "canon" with one "n"!
