Adventures of a Culinary Pirate Captain 5. Mai 2014
Von Liz W. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
As he lies on his deathbed in the infirmary of a prison in St. Augustine, Madrid-born Alberto—a former pirate and restaurant owner—gives us his life story. Beginning with his humble origins as a gardener on a rich man’s garlic plantation, he was involuntary conscripted into Phillip II’s army. After being sent to serve as a cook aboard a merchant ship, he soon is taken hostage by pirates. Due to his ability to whip up a mean dish of Spanish rice, he is spared from walking the plank and is appointed cook. After the ship’s captain is killed, the crew picks Alberto as his successor, as he has been voted “the least likely person to get everyone killed.” The rest, as they say, is history. Comical, charming, irreverent, and highly recommended.
A Great Read 17. Januar 2014

It's clever and fun. It is a quick entertaining read with the added measure of teaching a little of history.
A great little parody 12. Januar 2014
Von Linda Parkinson-Hardman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Historical fiction is a genre that generally appeals to the more literary reader, unless of course you are reading a murder mystery from the medieval period. It isn't something that one would usually associate with comedy and parody, until now perhaps. The Last Pirate at Fort Matanzas does have elements of truth about it; the location for instance does exist and it was built to protect the community of St Augustine. It did defend against pirate as well as enemy attack and was built by convicts, slaves and other ne'er-do-wells. Forced conscription into the newly minted navy's of the world was also common and the life of a lowly sailor was beset with difficulties and the ever present threat of being overrun by ships sailing the jolly roger.

But that is where the similarity ends and the comedy takes over. Our hero's story is not one that you'd expect to read and it does have moments that make you think 'Really! Could that really have happened?'. It is written as a memoir and the tone and voice used is one that deprecates our hero's own experience presenting it to the reader as something we can either believe or not, as we choose. It also jumps about, as the memory often does and we find ourselves transported from the garden of a Spanish nobleman to captaining a pirate ship and then back again. It's a great little parody and I almost wish that Captain Alberto Dicer did indeed exist as he might have made history lessons a little less boring.
Last Pirate at Fort Matanzas is a good book about making the best out a difficult situation 17. Dezember 2013
Von Christopher J. Cowen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Last Pirate at Fort Matanzas by Charles Frankhauser is a very good book about a a spanish gardener named Alberto who was forced into conscription (drafted by force) into the Army of King Phillip II of Spain for stealing a silver spoon from a dollhouse. Alberto wou;d come to learns how to fire a cannon, cook Spanish rice, duel, sail a ship, and plunder galleons of ships. Alberto lived a full life and this book tells his story. This book is very well written and I enjoyed reading it. I would definitely recommend this book.

Thank you for reading my review.
