    5 Words Swashbuckling adventure Love danger lifeI always find it so difficult to review my favourite books I just can't put my feelings into words It's particularly hard when I have read that book so many times over the past decade that the pages are falling out and the cover's peeling off because by now my love for the book has no reason it just isPirates is such an adventure It has so many twists and turns and shocks and some really sweet and poignant moments It's a book that sets my heart racing it's a book that has such a vivid world that I am lost to real life when I read it It's dramatic and thought provokingEvery time I read this book I get out of it than before It's one of those books that I itch to read at least once a year and turn to when life's just getting too much It's a safety blanket make of pure escapismThis book is wonderfully written in a uirky style I love the journey that Nancy takes both physically and as a personIt's a book I can see clear as day when I close my eyes It would make an amazing film or mini seriesNow that I'm kind of finished gushing for now I urge you to get out and grab a copy of this book and get stuck in

    I know that this is supposed to be a fun little book and I think the audience might be aimed at younger ages but in the end it felt inconsistent on so many levels that I was just left feeling confused andor disappointed depending upon the chapterFor one Rees seems to have done a good amount of research for this book yet I felt that she wasted it every time she turned a blind eye to conventions of the day I don't care how accurately you can describe various ships if you don't also think that the impressive suntan one would get from working in the sun everyday in the Caribbean for months will be a problem once a lady tries to dress up pretty and mingle with society And don't even get me started on the pacing If the historical inconsistencies left me disappointed the strangely anti climactic resolutions to all the dramatic moments just left me scratching my head The worst of Rees' crimes of inconsistency though was the juxtaposition of some pretty grisly scenes all things considered with the rosy view of pirate life where all men are decent except when riled up by a few bad apples and their apparently magically demonic musical instruments As for the love story I'm just thankful it wasn't a major component Boy and girl grow up together and naturally fall in love Boy 16 leaves girl 12 for the sea Over the next 8ish years they see each other oh let's do the math for fun2 hours talking in a stable6 hours ball in Bath1 hour girl is prisoner on boy's ship9 hours Yet we leave girl as she goes off to look for the only man she will ever marry The only reason either of them are still so faithful is because they haven't managed a whole day together since they were pre pubescentHappily leaving the ship

    45 stars but I'm rounding it up to 5 for this scene alone'That's why he beat you?''Yes But ain't nothing you can do Miss Nancy Best not to interfere Don't need to make trouble for yourself You be married soon ' Her voice faltered Her gaze flickered away as if she could no longer look at meI left her staring at the steady flame of the candle I still wore the pistol stuck in my sash and I almost smiled as I felt the carved wooden grip snug in my hand Nothing I could do How many people had told me that? Well now we would see WHO RUN THE WORLD?

    Although I haven't read much pirate themed fiction I find the premise interesting; so I've had my eye on this historical novel ever since the BC library where I work acuired it It definitely didn't disappoint Set mostly in the early 1720s with some stage setting in the years leading up to those this action packed tale follows the life and adventures of first person narrator Nancy Kington b ca 1704 the daughter of a Bristol merchant who finds herself packed off to the family's plantation in Jamaica at the age of 15 and is subseuently led by circumstances to voluntarily sign articles on a pirate shipPirates of course are sea going robbers; by definition they forcibly steal other people's property for their own profit Obviously they're off of the ethical strait and narrow path and in shady moral territory The piratical profession most naturally appeals to brutal and self serving types who don't have any particular moral sense or empathy with their fellow humans Some may be brutal and selfish than others and some spectacularly evil and sadistic types may find the pirate life an opportunity to gratify their propensities Like Robert Louis Stevenson before her British writer Rees gives full recognition to that reality To a greater extent than Stevenson though she recognizes that there can be a range of nuanced moral ualities among pirates with not all of them uite fitting that model especially in a time and place where patriarchy and male chauvinism legalized slavery and institutionalized ineuality and injustice greatly constrict many people's lives and choices and might render the right side of the law as morally dicey as life under the Jolly Roger That's not unlike the situation in the Old West or in medieval Europe where outlaws might sometimes be decent people pushed outside the law by others using the system for their own gain Personally I think that pirates who aren't brutal and selfish as such and who do have a strong moral sense and a concern for others can be interesting characters in the ways they navigate the shades of grey that their position necessarily entails; and that's true of our heroine here Yes a lady who happens to be a pirate can be an honorable and admirable heroineThis is fiction in the Romantic tradition that is fiction that seeks primarily to evoke strong emotional responses from the reader sometimes enhanced as they are here by extreme situations and exotic settings The Romantic aim is fully fulfilled here; I was taken captive by this pirate right away turned the pages as fast as I could at every opportunity and experienced a wealth of complex emotions throughout the story It's not however a romance novel in the Harleuin sense though it has clean romance as one strand of the plot which I appreciated and it doesn't romanticize things like piracy slavery and the grim realities of ocean going life in the 18th century It's also fiction with serious food for thought as well as rousing adventure and a very moving portrait of cross racial friendship Like most modern Romantic fiction though it borrows Realist techniues with a concern for verisimilitude and historical accuracy In common with some other authors Rees used the contemporary nonfiction A General History of the Robberies and Murders of the Most Notorious Pyrates which she and some others attribute to Daniel Defoe as a key source Nancy's narrative voice is engaging and uick flowing with a slightly archaic flavor in word choices and diction for realism but is much easier to read than an actual 18th century narrative would have been Born in 1949 former schoolteacher Rees is an accomplished novelist the author of some 19 books and a History major she actually had a double major but History was one Her publishers market her books to the YA age group and the BC library put this one in the Juvenile section on that account in this case probably encouraged by the fact that Nancy and her friend and fellow pirate Miranda are in their teens Bad language of the d word sort is present but relatively restrained rape or attempted rape and prostitution are part of their world but not portrayed in great detail and while there are some very violent and grisly moments Rees doesn't wallow in them The content here IMO wouldn't be harmful to a healthy teen; and I could see plenty of teen readers of both sexes eating it up with a spoon and asking for But it could just as easily have been marketed as an adult novel; there isn't anything stereotypically juvenile or kiddish about it Teens in Nancy and Miranda's day were expected to grow up uickly and our gals here definitely did they have far in common in their capacities and general attitudes with today's adult women than they do with typical modern teensThis particular edition of the book has a moderately interesting interview with the author originally published in a Michigan newspaper and a few pages of discussion uestions and activities aimed at younger readers that could be used for common reads in a book club or classroom At the time it was published the novel garnered a number of prestigious accolades from the likes of the American Library Assn the International Reading Assn etc For once I think it deserved every critical recognition it got and I don't often agree with the critical communityYou may wish me luck or curse me for a damnable pirate Nancy writes near the close of her account This reader opted for the first choice without apology

    Someone commented that the writing was weird and confusing I don't find it confusing at all I will admit listening to it on audio book might help with that as I did the first time around But this time I read it We have the story of a girl who wants to be rebellious in a world that sees her a currency for land and wealth She lives innocently and oblivious to the schemes of the men around her until one day she takes action against a man trying to hurt her best friend They run away and become pirates to escape their lives on Jamaica Someone also commented that she didn't grow as a character but that also isn't true She went from being a girl who did what she was told and went where she was told to standing for what she believes in in her own weird for her time way She thinks of others before herself in a different way now as well This story was breathtaking I was riveted and couldn't put it down until I was done Yes there were parts like in any other book that you think wow can we move on but it's nothing than a paragraph that I felt like this and not very often It is juvenile fiction but the story should captivate anyone and doesn't read as simple as most juvenile fictionRead August 2005 May 2012

    A young adult novel that I read exclusively because the teens in my book group had a serious hard on for the Pirates of the Carribean movies It’s a good story that seems backgrounded well with research and it’s a uick read about two teenage girls one an English heiress the other her slave who become pirates It doesn’t gloss over what a pirate’s life entailed but it refuses to linger on the unsavory aspects of it choosing to go a light hearted route Considering that Rees’ main goal is to entertain and capitalize on the current pop culture hunger for all things of a piratical nature that’s fair enough You can’t take a book with an exclamation point in the title too seriously anyway

    This book is about two young women who choose to become pirates during desperate times in their lives This book was just as good as With Child and think it's great for young teens to go on a great adventureI can't wait to get my hands on other books by Celia Rees such as Savoy another pirate bookAlthough I think I may be a little to old for these books I still think they're great as said by the 5 stars I gave above

    Nancy Kingston is in for a shock when her beloved father dies and she travels to his plantation in the West Indies with her brother leaving her childhood friend and betrothed behind When arriving at the plantation Nancy is shocked to discover her father was a keeper of slaves and her brother is attempting to marry her off to a cruel neighbor Nancy and Minerva a girl she befriends on the plantation run away together and end up boarding a pirate ship in disguise and start their life as high sea adventurersThis book always gets 55 stars for me on the nostalgia level because I frickin loved this book as a young girl and I still remember the thrills from when I initially read it and marveled at this amazing exciting life of female piratesCelia Rees expertly combines a story of two women who are struggling to find different kinds of freedom Minerva freedom to be herself without suffering cruelty and racism and Nancy a freedom to be herself away from the bindings of society The friendship and sisterly bond between Nancy and Minerva is everything and it is the main focal point of the story for me and romantic relationships are completely overshadowed by Nancy's love for Minerva which is fantasticWhile Celia Rees doesn't shy away from the cruelty and injustice of the time period particularly the treatment of people of colour and the disgusting slave trade there's definitely a sense of acceptance the older reader needs to have with the adventures Nancy and Minerva have as female pirates and the level of safety they appeared to have on board the ship and the lack of injuries they obtained while fightingThe book does slow down a bit near the middle and the pace meanders for a while before picking back up and the resolution and the ending of the 'villain' near the end all happens a little bit uickly But I absolutely love this book Some amazing strong female characters fighting for their right to be exactly who they are and I adore it 100% recommend to everyone

    Although I was fully prepared to like this book I love seafaring stories the book didn't hold up to my expectations fixed high by the likes of London Stevenson Jacues and Luke There is a wealth of potential with good characters and conflicts exotic settings and a sense of historically accurate details but the narration is slow with full details of events that bring little interest and skimming uickly over the most important climactic action The reading is easy but it is too clean cut The protagonists face danger after danger but there is never a sense of risk The reader is allowed to take for granted that no character of importance will be harmed Almost every detail in the long train of events is impossibly contrived so that there is no real excitement The underlying drama that drives the story is the romance between Nancy and her lover William but in the end this storyline takes a backseat and is never concluded In the beginning I noticed a strong resemblance to The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle by avi but avi's story was complex with greater risk elevated danger and plot twists Pirates was predictable and unalterably safe not what I expect or want from such a title So if perilous adventure on the high seas be what ye desire put down Pirates and take up instead the pages of The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle The Sea Wolf Treasure Island The Pearls of Lutra or heck even Benito Cereno Any one of these will be better reading and challenging for the mind I know Benito Cereno is a difficult read but it has twists and suspense in its few pages than Pirates can shake a stick atBut whatever it lacked in excitement it made up for in success Those pirates got loot with less trouble and in less time than any I've ever heard of
