TO CATCH A PIRATE was an amazing book! In this book there is adventure, romance, and even some suspense. It is told in alternating views between Anna, a 17 year-old girl, and James Sterling, a pirate. When their paths cross there is an instant chemistry that has you rooting for them through the whole book! James is charming and¿dangerous, which makes him even more captivating.
I think the main point is finding who you¿re supposed to be with. Fighting the odds of society and being who you want to be no matter what everyone says. The author brought so many emotions into one book, making it so that you couldn¿t put it down until you were finished! I¿d recommended this book to all my friends. You have to read TO CATCH A PIRATE!

What Not to Read

I'll admit, I didn't have very high expectations for this novel (if we can call it that) when I first opened To Catch a Pirate. Overall it looked one-dimensional, unengaging, with terrible syrupy romance. Turns out I was correct.

    Very Short Read

    I bought To Catch a Pirate while searching the web for a good high seas adventure book to read. It's about a sixteen-year old girl who becomes a phony privateer to catch a pirate who has stolen her father's treasure.

    First of all, I've read a lot of books that center around pirates and ocean adventures.
    To Catch a Pirate is written, as I understand it, by an author who usually writes splashy-romance fiction for females. Fine. But this pirate book is lacking what makes a good salty sailing cruise fun to read: realism. Things move too fast, the ship doesn't seem real, and the characters have--to me at least--little emotion. Besides, a female procuring a privateering license, even a forged one, isn't very believable. A woman in that time could hardly get on a pirate ship. Any ship. Period!
    The book is short. I read it all one night before bed, and it offers some adventure and romance.
    But the characters are shallow and the story is not strong enough to make me believe that things are really happening. That it could be real.
    An alternative I would recommend to "To Catch a Pirate" is the Bloody Jack series.

    I'm not too impressed...

    This book was all that great- I really didnt feel close to characters at all. The end was somewhat predictable and not very touching, though it tried to be. If you strive for a good female character, then you might not be too satesfied with this book. Nonetheless, it wasnt horrible. Give it a try, if you truely want.
