Pirates dressing up as scientists dressing up as women, hanging out with Charles Darwin on the Beagle, having adventures and discovering evolution. Monty Python meet Gideon Defoe! Don’t look for a plot because there is none. Don’t look for anything redeeming, social or other, because there is nothing. It’s a light hearted slapstick romp through Pirate lore. And Pirate-speak. “Har!” It wasn’t satirical enough for me but the silly parts made me laugh. You can read it quicker than watching a movie. And it’s wittier than most movies.
This little commentary applies to the second Adventure, it’s the same thing I’d write for the first Adventure. I think I’ll not read the third. Unless I am stuck at an airport and need to laugh out loud every once in a while.
