Octopus Pirate is a time-travelling steampunk tale set in the Victorian period. It's the story of a foundling who discovers he has unusual talents, such as camouflage, squishing into small spaces and the ability to communicate with octopuses! Follow Coco on his adventure to become a pirate.
You first meet Coco as a baby and see him grow up, he is an interesting character due to his special skills. He is likeable and I definitely found myself intrigued by his character.
The plot is straightforward and managed to keep my interest without my mind wandering. I liked that you saw Coco grow up throughout the book. I had to keep reading to find out what would happen to him next.
I don't normally read this genre but the synopsis caught my attention and I am really glad it did. There is plenty of adventure as we follow Coco growing up. All of the characters brought something to the story. I think the length of the book was quite good, not too long or short.
Four stars from me!
Thank you to Jane Yates for kindly sending me a copy to read and review.
In the beginning, I especially loved the relationship between Coco and his adoptive guardian Mary. The way in which Yates writes this slightly steampunk novel is that of a fable. It captures your heart along the way, especially as you see Coco come of age - which is really what this novel is all about. It is obvious that the author has written this book with much love - its somewhat naive telling is simply addictive. Octopus Pirate made me smile from start to finish, and is perfect for almost any age, but I secretly think adults will love this a tad bit more. It made for a refreshing read.
I was given a copy of this book to read in return for an honest review.
The story is about a boy named Coco born at sea with special abilities and is found and brought up by a nun on an island. When the nun dies, Coco has to leave the Island to live on the main land, and his journey starts where he will meet great friends, those not so friendly and out to exploit him and the start of a great plan and adventure to become pirates and travel back in time to fight with real ones.
The story is told in a narrated style and there are a few grammatical errors and a few words out of sync, thought this does not distract from this lovely story. I love the locations, details and how it’s all described in this book and if you have read Janes Paradox Child series books, you will find some flavours from them injected into this book.
The story is lovely short read and a great filler book; if you are like me, one of those that love’s reading book after book and you just need that something different between novels to break it up, then this is a great story to do that job.
Echos of "sense and sensibility and sea monsters" but suitable for all ages.
