Not all pirates are as charming as Jack Sparrow
on 1 May 2013
I have always enjoyed the romantic view of pirates, the flamboyant clothing, their bold exploits, the freedom it's the image we all like to believe unfortunately it's not the truth. This book actually gives you a true insight into the not so glamorous side of pirates and how they were not so charming and bold as we are led to believe through fiction and the movies. It's a charming little book the only criticism I have is it only scratches the surface of the individuals featured and leaves you thirsty for more information on these fascinating men of the sea.
