Not terribly interesting.
The ending wasn't that surprising or interesting, much like the rest of the book.
Not quite Jim Dale but close. Pinchot did a wonderful job with the various voices, moving between them effortlessly and in quite a believable manner.
If you are looking for something remotely similar to the pirates movie, On Stranger Tides, you will be disappointed. Except for mentioning the fountain of youth and Black Beard, there are really no similarities. How the Pirates of the Caribbean movie was based on this I haven't the foggiest. Also, the story wanders around a good deal without any big climax. There were a couple of small points when I thought that maybe the book was finally getting somewhere. Each time it turned out that it was just a slight up tick in the otherwise slow but not completely uninteresting story. Over all it's okay. I need to listen to more books in the genre I think for comparison but this isn't a must listen/read. I will however be looking for more books read by Bronson Pinchot. He did a really great job with the character's voices and I believe this book gets it's over all better rating in a large part to his performance.

I picked this up because Bronson Pinchot is my favorite recap and the reviews were solid and didn't regret it one bit.
I hope to find more in the series.
Bronson Pinchot did a great job. Voices and accents were top notch
Accents and tempo. Spot on.
I have enjoyed books by Tim Powers in the past and never got around to reading "On Stranger Tides" until now. What a treat! Not only is this a great story, Bronson Pinchot is an amazing narrator. The way he does the voices of the pirates, French, and English accents is incredible. Powers is one of my favorite authors and now Pinchot joins the small number of my favorite narrators.
I listen to books on tape typically about 10 or more hours a week during my commute time. A good book makes you kind of forget your driving!
I didn't care for this book. The others all ended up being really engrossing but this was not the same for me.
Magic during Pirate era, more believable than during WW2 maybe, but unreal still. By the way the second book I've not finished was by same author
