    One thought on “They're Cows, We're Pigs”

    1. This book was recommended to me by a well-read clerk at my local bookstore, a fever dream of 17th century piracy on the Caribbean. But I never quite got into it. The protagonist, who goes by various different names, has loving mentor relationships with two older men who teach him everything he knows, and much of the book comes back to avenging their deaths. There are vivid hallucinatory scenes of pirate raids and hurricanes and on occasion the language is just breathtaking. But often, it's hard [...]

    2. This came highly recommended and I don't know why. The story seemed even more clueless and lost than the main character. You could pull this and that out for discussion or to support/score points in a political/sociological debate. Other than that there is little to squeeze out of it.

    3. Had to read for class. Very strange story structure. The author relies on cheap shock value. I would like the hours I spent reading this book back

    4. A disgustingly violent and crude rendition of the lives of pirates. However crude, it gives one a sensitive perspective an male sexuality, with both women and men.
