    One thought on “Pirate

    1. This was a very interesting short story novel about a Somalian young man who is recruited to be a pirate It gives us a peek into the reasons why these young men choose to be pirates and how a raid is conducted in modern times.I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand the issues that the Somalians have or want to understand our modern day pirates a little .Language noneSex noneViolence someDrugs Alcohol none


    2. If possible, I would give this book 4 1 2 stars It takes a new perspective to the modern pirate and what drives them It emphasizes values and what drives everyone there isn t any swearing I can recall, and no sexuality There is some violence though.


    3. This is the POV of pirating from a Somalian child Definitely an eye opening take on the issue and how the Right Thing is not the same for all.
