You read it here first! Mumsnet's Book Club pages are teeming with author webchats, reviews - and top freebies.
DP was telling me the other day that he once read some of his dads book he thought was about pirates until after a chapter it skipped to present day and was gutted because he was enjoying it.So I thought a pirate book would be a nice idea for a present for Christmas! Can you recommend any? And what were the reasons you enjoyed it?
For an adult? On Stranger Tides by Tim Powers. Because it has zombies in as well.Or The Pyrates by George McDonald Fraser (warning, v dodgy sexual politics as I recall).Or The Pirates In An Adventure With....series by Gideon Dafoe - extraordinarily silly, but definitely about pirates.
On stranger tides sounds like a good one! I know he's a fan of zombie things a little too, thankyou!!!
The Requiem Shark by Nicholas Griffin is very good - gritty and grim in parts (as I imagine real life piracy was, so nice and authentic!) but really captures the whole atmosphere.
