Pirate Latitudes

Michael Crichton

This was such a fun read! High adventure with pirates, treasure, intrigue, and more! As you'd expect, there's also a lot of bloodshed and violence.

Michael Crichton got it almost exactly right. The plot was extremely fast-paced, and the language was plain, simple, extremely readable, and just perfect for this kind of novel.

I did catch a weakness or two. For instance, some of the plot devices were much too obvious. In no way did that interfere with how much I enjoyed the book, though.

I highly recommend Pirate Latitudes to anyone craving an adventurous read. I also recommend it for reluctant readers, since the plot is so fast-paced, the action absorbing, and the language is easy to read.

Merry Christmas, everyone!!
