The Pirates! In an Adventure with Communists by Gideon Defoe

For the first portion of this book, it felt like a rehash of old jokes from the previous novels. However, once the Pirate Captain gets entwined with Karl Marx, the book really picked up.

In this adventure, the pirates explore London and Paris in disguise and the Pirate Captain gets an opportunity to show his expertise in the French language. The Pirate Captain manages to land an endorsement from Perkin’s Gentlemen’s Pomade which provides him with ample supplies of the pomade. The book explores pirate philosophies as Karl Marx and the Pirate Captain get involved in a philosophical competition, and the captain gets to share his wit with the elite Frenchmen.

All jolly fun, but someone is trying to sabotage Marx’s reputation and discredit him. So the adventure takes a turn.

This is a great adventure and a quick read.
