Such a shame,
This review is from: Pirate Latitudes (Hardcover)
I so wanted this to be a great book, Crichton is such an excellent author and who can turn down a book on pirates?
But every page i turned i looked fr the story to get better and it didnt, it was wooden, 1 dimensional, there was no taking the reader along and allowing them to become one with the period and the sounds and sights and smells, it was just words on a page.
I finished the book really fast, normally the sign of a good book, but in this case a sign that i was almost scan reading in the vague hope that something would happen and something would improve.
such a shame ... a huge miss
