The Perils of Pauline
I liked this book a lot. If you are a pirate afficionado you will love it! But even if you aren't a pirate lover you will love this tale, told in a light funny style. I liken this story to the 'Perils of Pauline' as it concentrates on the trials and tribulations of a father/son duo as they attempt to find a buried treasure. But it is not just the story of the quest for the gold but the quest of a son and father to reconnect after many years apart. But don't make the mistake to think this is a story with mawkish sentimentality. The writer writes with a slightly ironic view of life which seems quite natural to today's comtempary reader. There is lots of sly humor in this tale and numerous laugh out loud scenes. Each person will have their own favorites. Interesting to note that there is not a lot of profuse prose to this tale, but despite that one is able to have a clear picture of the main actors in this story. Takes talent to do that. This book is good enough that I will probably read it again. I liken it to seeing a movie you really like. You like it the first time but the seond time around you pick up further gems you missed on the first go round. I highly recommend this book. And I hope the author has another one in the works soon.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
