+2 for Patrick O'Brien's Aubrey/Maturin series. Best ever. For adults.

I like to re-read after a gap of several years, for this does ideed bring forgotten details to light.

Others, like the Aubrey/Maturin 'dad jokes' one does not forget. "In the Navy one must always take the lesser of two weevils"; and the Bosun's cat, "the only name for which can be Scourge".

As memorable at least as "Better drowned than Duffers" but with the added benefit of being both clever AND funny!
