Book Description

1 Aug 2013

Whilst visiting their bank manager on the shores of Lake Geneva, the Pirate Captain and his crew encounter no less than the literary giants of their age: the swaggering Lord Byron, the oddly shifty Percy Shelley - and his beautiful young fiancée, Mary.

Together they embark upon a journey that leads them away from Switzerland into the bowels of Oxford, and finally to the forbidding heart of eastern Europe. It is an adventure that will force the Pirate Captain to confront some important questions, namely: what is the secret behind his mysterious belly tattoo? Is 'Zombuloid, the corpse-beast' a better name for a monster than 'Gorgo: Half-man, half-seaweed'? And, most importantly - what happens when a pirate finally falls in love?

Women in diaphanous nighties running down corridors! Brooding men with dark hair! Sinister taxidermy! Ghostly banging noises! The Pirates! In An Adventure with the Romantics contains all these things, as well as a bit where the Captain dresses up as a sexy fireman.

Mr Defoe has pulled another out of the bag - this series is destined to become a classic - timeless, stupid humour that I just love. I recommend it to anyone who likes laughing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gideon Defoe delivers again 10 Sep 2013
By MrsP
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having been a fan from the start, this fifth book just delivers and exceeds expectations. I laughed all the way through it and now have to listen to my husband laughing out loud as he reads it. Lots of little reference jokes, and insider jokes if you've read the whole series.
