are you a geek? you can read this in one or two days? Do you have nothing better to go in your spare time than read. Seriously. and fully understand the book? are you a pirate yourself? i found that book kind of hard to read in the beginning until you actually got into it. Sure, that book may not be my kind of book, but if hadn't of had to read it for school i would have stopped after the first four chapters. and i have only wished that i could time travel back in time to experience that kind of adventure, how lame is that. you sound like my brother, and that is not a good thing.
