I completely enjoyed this audiobook! While I agree that this isn't Crighton at his best, it's an absolutely fun story. Pirate Latitudes has everything you'd expect from a pirate tale: hurricanes, port governors, privateers, Spanish galleons, buried treasure, witchcraft, letters of marque, cannibals, daring escapes, sea monsters, sex, scandal, rum... and, of course, pirates. I could go on and on! Don't expect absolute fantasy like the Pirates of the Caribbean films - this one is more firmly rooted in reality. John Bedford Lloyd does a great job reading - I loved the accents and other characteristics he brings to the story.
Elantris is a unique and fun story, filled with great characters and situations... it is something entirely new in fantasy. I loved every minute and found myself wanting more when it ended. The narration was great, although I sometimes wish Mr. Garrett formulated different (non-American) accents for some characters.
I've contacted audible for help in getting a "free" copy of the workbook (unlocking this requires specific info from the print version). As of now I still have not received a way to get the workbook. I think it's terrible that they sell a book with a false pretense, saying the workbook is free and available, when it is not.
