It is 1639, and the winds of a Caribbean storm howl with the promise of sunken treasure. Treasure is the means by which fourteen-year-old Tom O'Connor hopes to deliver his family from the drudgery of working at a run-down inn on the island of Nevis. But on this particular night he finds only two ragged castaways drifting near death - a maudlin Spaniard who calls himself Ra...more

This would make a great movie with one incredible twist after another. The adventures of the earlier chapters become the tall tales of incorrigible liar Tom O’Connor in later chapters. Tom leaves his home on a 17th century Caribbean island, seeking the slave he believes will be his fortune. In turn he becomes a shark fisherman, a blacksmith, sugar plantation overseer, cabin boy, castaway and pirate. It’s all a bit unbelievable, but then that’s the fun of it. This book is every boy’s dream of adv...more
A great favourite of mine. I only wish I could have read it in its original Danish.

Thoughts on the Overall Book: I had high expectations for this book when I got it, and for the most part, I was not disappointed. It was maybe not quite as awesome as I hoped it would be, but I really did enjoy the story a lot.

Cover--Yea or Nay: Despite the fact that the characters are portrayed on the cover, I really like it. I think the artist did a good job portraying Tom and Boto, at least how I pictured them, and the fact that it's drawn instead of using models makes it better. It also port...more
Nachdem dieses Buch seit einer Vielzahl an Jahren in den Tiefen meines Bücherregals vor sich hin staubte, habe ich es nun endlich hervorgeholt und gelesen. Und ich muss sagen, es hat mir wirklich gut gefallen. Eigentlich lese ich recht selten Bücher aus diesem Genre und habe mich vielleicht gerade deswegen solange davor gedrückt das Buch zu lesen. Das war aber definitiv ein Fehler. Prinz Faisals Ring lebt von tollen Charakteren und spannenden Wendungen! Daher gibt es von mir 4 Sterne!

Recommends it for: Everyone
This book was very good. I found it in the Library and wanted to read it. It was interesting in hooking. The characters, like Tom O'Connor and Nyo Boto were very interesting and the way they interacted was great. There was also a little humor involved. I woudl recommend this book to anybody because it is a great book and one of my favorites.
Tom is clever, creative, and very, very lucky. I like how his big mouth gets him in and out of trouble. The author did a great job with his character development and with the moral of the story that God and life are worth clinging to. If the translator hadn't used the s word for going to the bathroom, I would have given this book five stars and I would have ordered it for my bookshelf. Alas. One cannot have everything in life.
well worth a read, especially when you need to fantasize and let your mind slip free. you don't get the feeling that you are being taken for a ride, but the authors imagination is very inspiring. i don't know where he gets it from!

shitty title, and the picture here is crap. it is a very good book though and will drag you into reuters world.
Prins Faisals ring er en rigtig drengerøvsroman af den gode gamle slags. Her er pirater og slavehandlere, løgnhalse og plantageejere, skibbrud og øde øer. Opfindsomheden er uovertruffen, men charmen er nok størst for 10-15 årige, derfor kun 3 stjerner.

Awesome! At the time I had read this, I had been looking for a great adventure book, and this book definitely satisfied my needs.
Without a doubt one of my all time favourite books - first read this when I was about 14, have re-read numerous times. Highly recommend!
