Under the Black Flag: The Romance and the Reality of Life Among the Pirates

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: David Cordingly

Narrated By: Don Hagen

Date: November 2011

Duration: 10 hours 30 minutes

Summary:

For this rousing, revisionist history, the former head of exhibitions at England's National Maritime Museum has combed original documents and records to produce a most authoritative and definitive account of piracy's 'Golden Age.' As he explodes many accepted myths (i.e. 'walking the plank' is pure fiction), Cordingly replaces them with a truth that is more complex and often bloodier.

    The narrator has a bass voice so you turn him up to hear him. Then he says anything with the letter "s" and you get a headache. It is likely a telltale indicator of age, something the person cannot help. The s always ends in a whistle. Otherwise, I find no issues with the voice. The book itself starts slow with an explanation of how media has tamed the pirates and dives into the history of pirates shortly thereafter. Not bad. Just watch those S's.

  • Bruce K.

    Basically a rehash of movies, myths and hearsay. Not much original content and a very shallow description of pirates and their perceived lives. There is a section of pirate ships which seems to be more original but the diagrams in an audio book are, well there are no diagrams in an audio book.
