Customer Reviews of Pirate Latitudes


Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good not great It's hard for me to write that I didn't love this book but i didn't.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not bad...but not Crichton either It was ok...the plot did have a lot of potential and interesting adventurous ideas, however each time the adventure began it was over and on to the next. It was like watching a movie trailer and you are left with ...that's it!? Not for a minute do I believe that this was a complete manuscript by Mr. Crichton. What I would be willing to believe however, that this was an outline left on his computer as the plot had the makings of a great novel. However, unlike an adventure such as Jurassic Park, it lacked the the intelligence as well as the gripping excitement that we are all so used to in all his other books. It is sad what publishers are willing to do with a high profile author's name once they are gone. At least with Robert Ludlum they were honest enough to say which novels were just outlined plots and completed by ghostwriters, as I truly believe this to be the case for Pirate Latitudes. Gee...I can only imagine what they are going to do when Stephen King is gone...
