I loved this book! I had my ear buds in constantly until I finished it. Jacky is back at sea where she belongs. The story moved quickly from one adventure to the next. I sometimes worried that the end was coming for Jacky, and had to remind myself that there are more books in the series. Even knowing she would come out in the end, I had to keep listening to hear what happened next.
Although I am well past my teen years, as are my children, I am loving this series!
I enjoyed this book, but got a little frustrated with Jackie at times. She seemed a lot more intelligent in Bloody Jack! In this book she is a bit more like a teenager with little experience in real life. Perhaps she just needs to go back to sea because she is is more familiar with expectations on water than land. It was still worth reading, and I will get the 3rd book in the series. The narrator was amazing in this book, just like the first one!
The story had and interesting start, but went downhill from there. I didn't feel as though I knew the characters. Perhaps the author was trying to make us feel Henry's detachment from other people, but I felt detached from the characters as well. The social changes that occurred through Henry's life were interesting. I had not been aware of "practice babies." I enjoyed the references to changes in expectations of women.
I really enjoyed this book. I believe it was written for a younger audience, but although I am over 50, I loved it!
This book kept my interest as it was fast paced and entertaining. The narrator did a nice job with the accent. I will be gettting more books in this series.
