    1 thought on “Pirates of Pensacola”

    1. I would have read this book anyway, it was a great book, one of the best I’ve read. It’s about two families: the Cookes and the Hoods. They’ve been going at each other and stepping on each others’ throats since the Spanish main days. The main characters are Morgan Cooke, Isaac Cooke, and Avery Hood.After a few chapters, a treasure map shows up. Then, once Isaac finds out he sets off to find it. He kidnaps his son, Morgan, and takes him on an adventure…………The bad guys they encount [...]

    2. Parts of this book were very amusing. I like the way Morgan started out as a put-upon accountant, but over the course of a surprising week, discovered his inner pirate. That said, I can't give the book more than three stars because I thought its tone, while comic throughout, was uneven. Thomson's story pinballs from parody up to farce and back down again. And unlike the characters in Carl Hiaasen's comic novels about crime in south Florida, many of the people in this book die violent deaths. Eve [...]

    3. Watching Morgan the accountant dragged kicking and screaming (at first) into a pirate treasure map search is absolutely hilarous.

    4. Todd sent it to me saying it was hilarious. I failed to get it but it was a good book. Not funny to me, however.

    5. Morgan's dad Isaac disappeared when he was a kid, off to prison. This was bad timing because his mom had just died. Morgan is taken under the wing of Herb Flick, he grows up to become a middling accountant. He is basically an office drone at the Vail Company when his dad shows up unexpectedly and drinks the last beer from his fridge. There are some unresolved issues between father and son, to say the least. Soon, however, they are on an adventure, looking for lost treasure that Isaac hid before [...]

    6. I won this book on a giveaway on . This story is a rollicking adventure between a man and his father, who is a pirate but has been in a correctional facility for the past fifteen years or so (the pirate part is unbeknownst to his son). The father, Isaac, gets released and immediately kidnaps his son, Morgan, from his dull accounting job, to help Isaac find his hidden treasure. Only problem, the people Morgan works for are from a long line of pirates (the Hoods) who have been feuding for decades [...]

    7. I picked this book up (on Kindle) solely at the recommendation of The Pirate himself, Ol' Chumbucket (of Talk Like a Pirate Day fame). At $0.99 on TLaPD I couldn't pass up such a well recommended book.The book itself was a bit slow to start but once the ride got moving, I couldn't wait to find out how it would end. There's plenty of twists and turns as you try to determine what is reality and what's just the wild dreams of a madman. While not the best book I ever read, it's certainly, by far, th [...]

    8. To distinguish this, from my many 4 star ratings, i I gave this five stars. (It probably doesn't quite deserve it), but I truly enjoy everything that Keith Thompson writes. His main characters seem to be fathers and sons, all adults, and the father is usually the heroic one and the son is somewhat nerdy in comparison.This one has a good deal of history of pirates in the Caribbean. Father and son are descendants of the famous pirate Captain John Cook, from the 17th century.

    9. Not a bad pirate book. It reads a bit like a movie with appropriate one liners and gotcha moments. Mixing a bit of humor. With some killing scenes offered a book that at times was unsure of itself. The style appears to be somewhere in the middle between Gus Openshaw and his newer ASpy novels as far as seriousness etc. Either way i would have to give a favorable review and not just because he spells his name the proper way.

    10. Story line and plot are great, original. Modern day main characters crash into family past and famous history. Midway to the end a little bit too much time spent on the battle/struggle. Waited for climatic end, but it took awhile to get there.

    11. I really liked this, I read it in two days on my Kindle. The story lifts plausibly (which is a tribute to the author's good writing) from one implausible level to the next in non-stop action which includes a skilfully developing renaissance of a seemingly lost father son relationship.

    12. A thoroughly charming book. Recommended by Chumbucket, one of the "Talk Like a Pirate Day" founders, I wasn't sure what to expect, but this modern-day pirate story was a great read. Funny, exciting and poignant in turns, it kept me riveted right to the end.

    13. This book is hilarious and touching all at once. It is a feel-good read for me (in fact, I'm looking forward to re-reading it soon). A father and son are reunited, there are pirates, and then there's that alcoholic parrot.

    14. A zany tale about the CPA who suddenly learns of his descent from an ancient and notorious pirating family. Swashbuckling ensues. Not as thoroughly satisfying as Hiaasen or Moore, but it'll definitely do in a pinch.

    15. As far as excitement goes, this story could have used a bit more; however I adored the idea of a treasure map showing up and inspiring this adventure. I wasn't extremely impressed but was content while reading.Darcee KrausMckinleyville, CAetsy/shop/BlassGlass

    16. Pirates of PensacolaFun read full of pirate lore and adventure. It's a little different from the authors other books in that there were no says.

    17. Interesting part on the history of pirates, but there did seem to be A LOT of fighting scenesked the ending, though!
