Ahoy me matey's. What we be havin' here be a book about gentleman o' fortunes (aka pirates aka bucaneers aka eye patch wearing, cutlass wielding, peg leg walking humanoids) an' rather bad one at that! I be hopin' fer a good story full o' adventure on th' high seas, instead I got a long winded history lesson which port me wi' nay booty t' keep. Gar.

Sea dogs, like vampires, be pretty much th' "in" thin' starboard now. So when me first see' this har book naturally I thought, "wow, how cool, a mixture o' swashbucklers an' Jews." I can learn about some o' me heritage while at th' same time get an excitin' story. Boy be I wrong... Read the rest of my review at www.valetreader.com
