My Review

Reviewer’s Note: I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The Plot in Brief: Pirate Anne Bonny left her new-born child with friends. As the girl’s first birthday draws near, Anne is determined to see her on her special day. By her side is friend and fellow pirate, Mary Read. But she must convince her lover and daughter Kate’s father, Calico Jack, to take her to Cuba.

The Characters: Pirates Calico Jack Rackam, Anne Bonny and Mary Read are well known, but author James Grant Goldin, spins a yarn that will suck you in and having you cheering for them. The dialogue is tongue-in-cheek and very funny. And I learned a new word: bedad, which is An Irish minced oath, a corruption of be gad, for by God! 

The History: I don’t know a lot about the history of pirates in the Caribbean but the story seems to be very well researched and full of details about ships and pirate things!

The Writing: Well written with a zippy pace, this book will have you laughing at the zany antics of the Calico Jack and his crew. The narrative is full of over-the-top action and larger-than-life characters.

Overall: I really enjoyed this book and found it seriously funny. I’m going to add book one and three to my TBR!


My Rating: 5 🥥🥥🥥🥥🥥 coconuts in honour of the book!
