Who be the PiRat?

Every Friday throughout May, The Book Rat will be forcibly taken over by the PiRat, most dread rodent to appear on the high seas since Reepicheep.

Capt. PiRat will be sharing with us his take on some swashbuckling tales - because what's a rat to do in all that downtime when he's not marauding?

Read, of course...

(and drink rum. but that's a given.)


And now the first tale from the Capt. PiRat...

Review snippet of: The Dust of 100 Dogs by A.S. King

There are a lot of things I could say about the writing and the structure of the book, and the alternating viewpoints, and the interestingness of it all, but what I really want to talk about is this: I'm kind of amazed at how dark this book is.

Read the complete review.

Capt. PiRat Says:
Here be the story I was waitin' for. Emer is a pirate, sure enough; Jilly could learn sommat from her. Now where to get some o' that dust o' 100 dogs - I know a bitch or two could benefit from that...
