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: Steel by Carrie Vaughn

There are a lot of elements to Steel that seem as if its bound to be a win.
Fencing? ☑
Pirates? ☑
Time travel? ☑
A touch of romance? ☑
They’re all there. But I never really connected to Steel the way I would have liked.

I mean, it was enjoyable enough, but there were some things that held me back and created a bit of a disconnect.

Read the complete review

Capt. PiRat Says:
Yar, there be swashbucklin' aplenty in Steel. But this Jill be a barmy lass if she think a little bit of frippering with an epeƩ prepare her for piratin'. That be playactin'.

Bein' a pirate means days o' hard working - and nights o' hard drinking. Little Jilly be plucky enough, but she's no Anne Bonny.
