    This was a mess. I don't even know where to start this review. H

    This was a mess. I don't even know where to start this review. Hot pirate chick sets off to Skull Island to find her long lost father and an unimaginable treasure. Mysterious African dude who sold the map to Skull Island to her dad conveniently has another copy, which he provides to her with no problem whatsoever, except that he wants to come on the trip. Meanwhile, hot pirate chick's ex-boyfriend shows up, and also wants to come with. And she is stupid enough to let him. 

    Long story short, they find Skull Island with no problem, hot pirate chick ends up kidnapped and naked for no apparent reason, and then married off to King Kong (if you remember, the movie takes place on Skull Island), who sets her down, wanders off to fight a T-Rex, and completely forgets about her. After all the setup, and the talk about how intelligent his eyes are, and how he seems to understand her speech, he just wanders off, never to be seen again. What was the point? His appearance could have been completely edited out with no impact at all on the story. 

    I won't give the rest away, but there are no real surprises, the action sequences are very short and simple, and the characters are all cardboard cutouts that we've seen done better before. I felt like I was reading an outline for a story rather than the story itself due to the simplified prose and poor editing. Very glad I only paid 99 cents for the ebook, and not $4.50 for a physical book.
