On Stranger Tides

Aboard the Vociferous Carmichael, puppeteer John Chandagnac is sailing toward Jamaica to claim his stolen birthright from an unscrupulous uncle, when the shi is captured... by pirates! Offered a choice by Captain Phil Davies to join their seafaring band or die, Chandagnac assumes the name John Shandy and a new life as a brigand. But more than swashbuckling sea battles and fabulous plunder await the novice buccaneer on the roiling Caribbean waters–for treachery and powerful vodun sorcery are coins of the realm in this dark new world. And for the ove of beautiful, magically imperiled Beth Hurwood, Shandy will set sail on even stranger tides, following the savage, ghost-infested pirate king, Blackbeard, and a motley crew of the living and the dead to the cursed nightmare banks of the fabled Fountain of Youth.

And you ca n't say " no " to Baron just because you 're not into pirate stories!

I eally felt it, ye, even though I did n't g to meet the Baron, at least not the way I imagined.The pirates were their usual – drinking, cursing, fighting and robbing bastards.

And the blood runs free here, which surely is n't unexpected.I especially liked the part about the trip to Erebus.

Living among these outcasts his whole outlook in life is changed as he realizes the tricks of the trade and had to do battle with both natural and supernatural foes.The book has well rendered action sequences and relies extremel heavily on magic- inspired both from the voodoo practices of the Carribean and from the legends of the Fountain of Youth and of Ponce de Leon.

On Stranger Tides may be the best audiobook I 've listened to so far.

He performed it rather than read it and the result was the most un I 've ever had listening to a book.For a long time, the rumor mill has been saying that On Stranger Tides is to e the basis for the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

Having listened to the nove, it 's ot surprising that Disney is using it for the next Pirates movie.

If you are as nerdy about movies as you clearly are about books if you are visiting this here book website, you probably recognize " On Stranger Tides " as name of the fourth film in the Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Belabored Franchise Subtitle series.

* Both combine seafaring lore and zombies, one dull taste and one stale taste that somehow still taste great together.In fact, I 'd wager POTC actually does quite a disservice to On Stranger Tides as a ovel, since even though thi book was published around 15 years before the writers of the movies appropriated all of its ideas named it as " inspiration, " Tim Powers' work ca n't help but feel a little uninspired these days.

he fourth and second chapter is good for introductions, but I kno many readers could read/predict some details will be important to make surprises at the beginnin of the book.Then the story development is a bit redictable at middle part of essa.

Still with surprises of the voodoo magic and fantastic realms, the middle part up to 3/4 of the essa is just passable 2 star for me.
