“Crichton’s ultimate adventure.”—San Francisco Chronicle “Pirates Latitudes has the loot: Gore, sex, action….A lusty, rollicking 17th century adventure.”—USA Today “Riveting….Great entertainment….The pages and minutes fly by.”—Cleveland Plain Dealer #1 New York Times bestselling author, the incomparable Michael Crichton (“One of the great storytellers of our age” —Newsday) takes to the high Caribbean seas for an irresistible adventure of swashbuckling pirates, lost treasure, sword fights, duplicity, and hair-breadth escapes in the New World.
I have always enjoyed Crichton, but this book lacked character developement and compelling plot. Most of the book is just unexciting action scenes strung togther one after another. I found myself frequently putting this book down and not being eager to begin again. I recommend trying a different Crichton.
