Trying to break out of my regular schlock of pulpy romance books, I’m running with my current obsession of pirates, due to Pirates of the Caribbean. In a way I am still that 14 year old Tiger Beat girl
So, wandering around Amazon one night, some guy recommended On Stranger Tides by Tim Power as a better pirate story than the cardboard book version of PoTc.
I’ve never bought a book from some anonymous stranger’s review online.
Maybe it was the fact that it is not in print anymore that lured me. Unavailble means I must hunt it down.
Maybe it was the loftier price tag of $20 to buy a $3.95 book.
Maybe I’ll never explain why I bought it.
I’m only three chapters into it and I am really liking it so far.
Anyone else read it?
