    This ending to "Hornblower & the Crisis" yields nothing in inventiveness, intrigue, authenticity and sparkle to the general run of the original Hornblower tales, and is a considerable achievement. More of an achievement, I would venture, by Mr Smith to have so comprehensively mastered Forester's idiosyncratic patterns of plot development and writing style, and to have come up with plausible internal dialogues and external responses from the conflicted Captain, than for CSF to have finished it himself to the same standard ... Which, given his failing health, would by no means have been a sure thing. I have only one quibble with this endeavour: Although I was sure this project must have been tackled, I found this book remarkably difficult to discover. I eventually stumbled across it rather by chance. The fact that I am the first to review it suggests to me that it remains relatively unheralded. It seems a shame for a piece of writing with the potential to bring... More > considerable satisfaction to so many, as well as deserved recognition to the man who has dedicated (presumably)considerable time and study to the endeavour, to languish in a corner of the www. Perhaps someone with a deep understanding of the remediation of cyber obscurity could put their shoulder to this wheel; all I can think of to do is to add a few key search phrases here: "ending to Hornblower & the Crisis" "ending to Hornblower and the Crisis" "conclusion to Hornblower and the Crisis" "ending to Hornblower during the Crisis" "Hornblower Crisis end" "Hornblower Crisis ended" "Hornblower Crisis ending" "finished Forester's unfinishished novel" "Hornblower and the Crisis finished off" "Hornblower and the Crisis completed" refers to< Less
