A slightly more introspective Pirates book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Pirates! In an Adventure with Napoleon: Reissued (Paperback)
Of all the Pirates books, this one made me laugh the most. When the Pirate Captain is humiliated at the Pirate of the Year awards he exiles himself to St Helena to become a bee keeper. As such, there's not much "adventuring" and the book is much more about the special character that is the Pirate Captain. I think we get a far more sustained look at the essence of the man - and it's hilarious. Only a rival as self important as Napoleon can really bring out the best and worst in our hero!
Warning, this book has a number of "spit out your tea" funny moments - be careful reading it in public!
