3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly misleading., 29 July 2012

This review is from: Blackbeard: The Real Pirate of the Caribbean (Paperback)
This book should really be called "Pirates: with a bit of Blackbeard thrown in for good measure". The majority of this book is about pirates in general, and is interspersed with stories of Blackbeard. Some of it is pure speculation (for example how he may have grown up, or why he might have gone to sea). However, it was a nice light read, and something I would probably have enjoyed a lot more if I was still a kid.

3.0 out of 5 stars A fun romp through pirating., 12 Aug 2008

This review is from: Blackbeard: The Real Pirate of the Caribbean (Paperback)
Not being able to flick through this on a book shelf I didn't realise that this is one of those books that is tied into a TV documentary. As such it is a little light weight on the history and heavy on the pictures. Indeed while some artefacts of the times are shown there are a lot of glossy shots of the TV show put in there. Whenever this is the case I do feel that the book would be improved by it coming with a copy of the DVD of the show as sometimes it almost reads like the voice over on the show.

Saying that it is a good introduction to high seas piracy and the riveting story of Edward Teach- Black Beard. It has lots of illustrations and is always entertaining.

If you liked this there's more historical debate and fun at @HistoryGems on Facebook and Twitter
