    PDF/EPUB Pirate Latitudes eBook à ↠ chickenshedcafe.uk pirate pdf, latitudes pdf, Pirate Latitudes eBookI have seen many reviews critical of this book but I thought it was a great adventure with interesting characters and twists Perhaps people are critical of the fact that this is unlike Crichton's other titles but much like Eaters of the Dead and The Great Train Robbery; it is great well researched historical fiction Note between Latitudes Eaters and Train Robbery I liked this one the best

    PDF/EPUB Pirate Latitudes eBook à ↠ chickenshedcafe.uk pirate pdf, latitudes pdf, Pirate Latitudes eBookScanning the reviews of this fantastic pirate novel I'm a bit stunned at how many low ratings there are Two important things for those reviewers to bear in mind 1 this is way outside Crichton's normal 'genre' and so readers will look askance at this venture into uncharted waters couldn't resist the pun and 2 the book was found on Crichton's computer after he died so it may well be that he wasn't finished with itOn that last point I agree with some reviewers that the book lapses into being slow in places Again perhaps these were sections Crichton intended to revise and let's not forget that the book would never have made it to print without the publisher's editors getting a go round at it yes they have now that it was found and published but not with the benefit of the back and forth that happens between authors and editors but even so I think even the slow sect

    PDF/EPUB Pirate Latitudes eBook à ↠ chickenshedcafe.uk pirate pdf, latitudes pdf, Pirate Latitudes eBookSince I greatly enjoyed Crichton's Timeline and Jurassic Park though I have yet to review the latter I hoped to find a work of similar uality in this posthumous novel though I knew that its ratings here on Goodreads varied widely As usual my reaction is my own; and as is sometimes the case it falls somewhere between the extremesCrichton of course was best known for his science fiction Here he branches out into historical fiction in a tale that doesn't really have any SF elements at all Some readers might assume that the references to a kraken

    PDF/EPUB Pirate Latitudes eBook à ↠ chickenshedcafe.uk pirate pdf, latitudes pdf, Pirate Latitudes eBookI was so happy to hear they were publishing this book Crichton's death was so sudden and unexpected I literally mourned the untold stories we lost with his passingTold as something of a realistic less Disney Pirates of the Carribean Crichton weaves the tale of Captain Charles Hunter's greatest raid of a Spanish treasure ship From the first chapter we are placed in the adventure and it ends up being a uick fun rideThe story was pure Chrichton well told detailed obviously well researched but the beginning left something to be desired Usually with his books I can uickly choose a character to root for as well as one to hate The plot of this book didn't suffer but the little character uirks and ticks I've come to love him for were missing I hope this was because he wasn't uite finished I've never written a novel so don't know if this is possible but the Crichton character magic showed up from page 187 chapter 27 Monkey Bay The entire flavor bec
