Lieutenant Hornblower - C.S. Forester

I need to readjust my expectations for the series. The first book was a series of interconnected short stories that zipped from action scene to action scene. So far Forster substituted tension for action in this one; it's not bad, but it's definitely different from what I was anticipating after the last book.
