On Stranger Tides


Pirates. Zombies. Voodoo. It's all here in Tim Power's On Stranger Tides. Now I am a huge fan of Tim Powers, but I never quite managed to get into this one the way I normally do with his books. I'm not sure if it was just that pirates I just not my thing (they're all criminals - hang the lot of them).

The characters were a bit uninspiring, and not at all compelling. The story was a little confusing to follow.

That said however, it still has plenty of action and fun, and was still a better read than a lot of other stuff I have read this year. Tim Powers, even at his most uninspiring, is still pretty entertaining.
