    Story
    (29)

    The year is 1819, and the renowned chef Owen Wedgwood has been kidnapped by the ruthless pirate Mad Hannah Mabbot. He will be spared, she tells him, as long as he puts exquisite food in front of her every Sunday without fail. To appease the red-haired captain, Wedgwood gets cracking with the meager supplies on board. His first triumph at sea is actual bread, made from a sourdough starter that he leavens in a tin under his shirt throughout a roaring battle, as men are cutlassed all around him. Soon he’s making tea-smoked eel and brewing pineapple-banana cider.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Eli Brown and/or James Langton?

    I am not sure - I certainly wouldn't buy one as soon as it came but would wait for reviews.


    What was most disappointing about Eli Brown’s story?

    The main character wasn't very likeable - he kept making stupid moves in the course of the story by trying to escape and then 'suddenly' decided he was happy living on the boat.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of James Langton?

    I am not sure - I couldn't decide if the lack of likeability of the main character was due to the narration or not. Whenever you are listening to an audiobook and you find yourself just tired of hearing a voice - it isn't a good sign. He seemed to drone on and on but that could also be the fault of the story.


    Do you think Cinnamon and Gunpowder needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    no
