Many might be asking the same questions I was before buying this book: Pirates? Really? Other than seeing the first three Pirates of the Caribbean films and enjoying the ride at Disneyland, I’m not actually the biggest pirate fan in the world. However, mixing the intrigue of double and triple-crosses, historical accuracy that you won’t believe, as well as rich, multi-layered characters, makes this a quick and entertaining piece of work.
Though I didn’t know much about the history of the subject, Stinson does an excellent job of getting it right. You can just tell. From the detailed locales, to the dress, to the customs of the day, the reader is transported to a time and place as if he or she had just stepped from a time-machine.
