I had such high hopes for this book. After stumbling across it on Audible, I was uber eager to dig into it. But almost from the very beginning, it was dense, hard to read and slow. By reading a bit at a time over the course of a few weeks, I did manage to hit the 30% mark on my Kindle before finally deciding that it wasn’t worth the torture to continue forcing myself to work through this book.

I bought it because I was under the impression that it was going to be an exciting book about pirate adventures and treasure and booty. It is really a blow-by-blow account about a search for a very lucrative, lost pirate ship. If that still sounds exciting to you, let me elaborate. Searching for a pirate ship is a very tedious job. How do I know this? Because I read the first fourth of this book which talks about the equipment, how much the machines cost, how they work, what they are used for, and how you read the results of those processes.

I definitely wasn’t planning on learning how to find sunken ships or treasure when I bought this. It is probable that maybe I was duped by the synopsis. But I reread that too just to prove to myself that I wasn’t crazy for expecting something else from this book. But the description definitely sells this not-so-novel as some sort of Pirates of the Caribbean story.

Again, this is not at all what I was hoping for and I will continue my search for a pirate story that is equally as informative as it is entertaining.
