I just read the prologue and so far seems like an exciting book to read!

After reading today's read, this sounds really entertaining! I especially liked the beginning where Napoleon was waiting in the dark....I never suspected a costume party. :) Very nice touch and I'm sure this will only get better over the course of the week.

What a welcome change from last week's fiction read! The reviews I've checked all promise a romp of a read. This first installment doesn't fall short. But, alas, I have to wait for the real book to be returned to the library. It's going to be a long week!

Just in time! I'm heading for the beach next week and hoping that I can find this book at one of my libraries to take with me. This sounds likes it's going to be a great beach read. It sounds like it has a little bit of everything......suspense, humor, excitement. Thanks,Suzanne!

Modern day pirates

I love the idea of modern day pirates! Definitely interested in finding out more. The costume party was a suprise and the possibilities are endless as to what could happen next. I think it will be a great summer read.

Brain cramp

June 22 2005, 5:46 PM 

Someone explain this to me...
The pirate reached across the chauffeur's lap, opened his door, and attempted to shove him out of the car, but the stout fellow was seat-belted in, tight.

Then things, as far as the pirate was concerned, got worse. He heard men running into the parking lot. Evidently hearing them, too, the chauffeur woke up.

"Drive," the pirate barked.

The chauffeur rubbed sleep from his eyes.

The pirate added, "Now!"

Still drowsy, the chauffeur said, "Sorry, chief, you're in the wrong car."

"This is my car now," the pirate declared, and for emphasis he wound his sword back through the open window and swung it, hacking the headrest clean off the chauffeur's seat.
How can the pirate be *in* the car and hack off the headrest through the open window?

Well, gosh, he 'wound' it back in through the window, sort of a fishing rod kind of sword I guess. I was wondering why the chauffeur's head didn't come off with the headrest.

I too, was wondering how he managed to hack off the headrest without decapitating the driver of the car....hmmmm....must be an excellent swordsman.

I found the installments to be quite entertaining. I wasn't sure at first about the whole modern day pirate thing, but the writing caught my attention anyway. I have requested a copy from my local library and am looking forward to reading the whole book.

What a Hoot!

This has been the PERFECT summer read! What a hoot! Lots of excitement ala Indiana Jones (but at sea), and one pun after the next. There surely is a movie in the works, and I'll be first in line for tickets.
