Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
The Last Bookaneer by Matthew Pearl encompasses the love of books, rivalries, epic quests, wealth, and madness set around a memorable main character - the Last Bookaneer. It combines the history of copyright laws, the history of Robert Louis Stevenson's life in Samoa with the fictional story of the thieving bookaneers to create an immensely multi-layered story that ends with twists and turns like a roller coaster ride.
