The raunchy nature of it. It didn't give pirates this sort of glossy, romantic image; it felt more true to their the realities of the time.
There were a bunch. Whereas with most stories, the main goal is established and the rest of the book is spent seeking to accomplish said goal, this one achieves goal resolution in the middle of the book leaving the reader guessing for the entire remainder of the book while it covers the return journey. Most books don't cover return journeys, so that in itself was pretty fun.
Probably the Kraken
We futz ta get crunk yo ho!
This is just a really fun book.
Totally. It picks up where the previous one left off and you don't want to put it down.
John Carter. He's a total badass.
He doesn't hold back.
The John Carter books are all fantastic
Totally. This sh*t was cliff hanger after cliff hanger. One of the best Sci-Fi stories ever written.
I'm not sure you can.
I have not, but it was good.
The end of the book. The way they left you hanging was insane.
This might be one of the best books I've ever read.
Just the crazy creative aspects of it
Probably his first experiences on Mars
Obviously John Carter
I loved it
This was so radical for it's time
Volume 1. Because it's the same characters and author.
nothing too unexpected
yes, but only from the perspective of ease. I listened to it on a road trip.
Obviously the way Sherlock Holmes explained how he resolved the crimes.
His characterization of Sherlock was a bit different than I had pictured in my head, but in a good way.
spraying lead and crackin' heads
Best mystery writer ever
I liked the idea of switching the point of view.
Paradise Lost. You feel empathy for the main character, who you know is the villain in a different version of the story.
Probably the end of the wicked witches life, from her point of view.
No, it was entertaining
There was some excessive parts in the book that seem like they were just done for shock value and didn't seem to add anything to the story. Some of it was just over sexual for no clear reason or just purposefully disgusting and in no one moved the story line forward. It was just strange in that aspect. Like the author was just purposefully trying to disgust or embarrass the reader, which came off just sort of silly.
I thought this was great, but I'm also a fan of the free-market. If you are not pro-capitalist or you're not familiar with the concepts of capitalism or socialism, this book will probably not be you're thing.
The unapologetic reverence of capitalism and pride in the individual over the collective.
Um, I don't know if he brings anything different that I wouldn't have gotten from reading, but he does a really great job.
Yeah. Hard on.
Ayn Rand is a very particular flavor and not to everyone's taste.
I haven't read the print version. The audio version was great though. Lots of different performers, but they all did a great job. This is ridiculously long though as a serious of short stories, so break it up. I tried to do in all together and it wore me out.
I can't think of anything
too many to name
I liked it
I'm not sure I'd change anything. For the time it was written, the perspective is probably great. I just got bored with the constant donations of animal intestines and other sacrifices to the gods, the constant pouring of wine... like gallons and gallons of wine to every little thing, the melodramatic prayers... Very mythology driven. If you're into mythology, this will probably be great. If you're not, then you may want to skip over this one.
Has anyone bothered to count exactly how many animals were sacrificed and how many gallons of wine were poured out to their homies?
