“Powers writes action and adventure that Indiana Jones could only dream of.”
“Tim Powers is a brilliant writer.”
The remarkable Tim Powers—who ingeniously married the John Le Carrè spy novel to the otherworldly in his critically acclaimed Declare—brings us pirate adventure with a dazzling difference. On Stranger Tides features Blackbeard, ghosts, voodoo, zombies, the fable Fountain of Youth…and more swashbuckling action than you could shake a cutlass at, as reluctant buccaneer John Shandy braves all manner of peril, natural and supernatural, to rescue his ensorcelled love. Nominated for the Locus and World Fantasy Awards, On Stranger Tides is the book that inspired the motion picture Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides—non-stop, breathtaking fiction from the genius imagination that conceived Last Call, Expiration Date, and Three Days to Never.

A piratical adventure
This book encompasses the entire legacy of piracy. It's historically accurate as well. Its use of language is a bit challenging, but its a great story. Do not however read this before watching pirates of the Caribbean 4. It's going to spoil too much. But I definitely give this book two thumbs up
This is a very enjoyable read. The fourth pirates of the caribbean didn't do it justice- they're two completely different stories!
