Book Review

This book was one of the better classical books that I have read throughout my life. It had a couple of good twists in the book. Its an interesting tale of pirates and their mutiny. It is a good book for book reports mainly because it is short and very easy to read.


Favorite Passage

"Pew made another dash, now utterly bewildered, right under the nearest of the coming horses. The rider tried to save him, but in vain. Down went Pew with a cry that rang high into the night; and the four hoofs trampled and spurned him and passed by. He fell on his side, then gently collapsed upon his face, and moved no more."
