I just deleted my review without publishing it. I was about to hit "save" button, when I realised that there is not a single positive word that I can write here about this whole ordeal. Instead, here is a simple list of issues I came cross:
- 24 year old manchild, and not the fun Jack Sparrow or Tom Hanks (referring to movie "Big") type;
- 24 year old manchild who by some mighty miracle survived as a pirate and a captain to be 24 years old;
- neglect. Because letting the poor boy run around in wet clothes, while dirty and stinky is neglect;
- commas. OMG, they are killing this story! Not there is much to kill, but they are the proverbial kick, delivered to someone who is already down :/
I really don't know how the two MCs survived; one as a pirate for as long as he did, the other one as a Hunter. Must be by some miracle/fairy godmother.
There were times when this book was a big deal and everyone and their cousin was reading it and loving it. It was such a hype! *sigh* What a disappointment in turned out to be! :(
PS I wish Samantha Cayto re-wrote it. After all, there is a potential here, it's the execution that's lacking :(
