    One thought on “Hunting Pirate Heaven: In Search of the Lost Pirate Utopias of the Indian Ocean

    1. David R.

      If one picks up this title hoping for emphasis on the places the most notorious Indian Ocean pirates haunted (in Mozambique, Madagascar and the Comoros) one will be disappointed. Rushby doesn't spend very much time at all on this material. The book is better read as a travel yarn focused on the author's improbable trek through beastly backwaters, seedy towns, and dangerous back alleys, and in the company of a very unusual group of residents and travellers. These are not the places most sensible [...]

    2. Turi

      I was hoping for a little more humor in Hunting Pirate Heaven - there was some there, but I had pictured a Bryson-esque travelogue. (Hmmm, mentioned Bill Bryson again. Wonder if he's writing anything.) Anyway, Kevin Rushby travels the east coast of Africa and Madagascar searching for remnants of pirate havens. He does find a few, but this is mostly the story of his trip and some of the people he met along the way. Enjoyable book, but not quite what I expected.

    3. Elena

      The pirate theme is sort of an afterthought, but the travel diary in southeastern Africa is adventurous, beautiful, messy, and inspirational. Seems a little too cool, the characters a little too scripted and formulaic (verging into stock: like the captain who semi-threatened to kill them and dump them over the side, or the laconic and angry German hotel owners), but a compelling and old-schooly travel read.

    4. Sam

      This is a good travelogue of Rushby's trip -- mostly by boat -- up the coast of Mozambique, and across to the Comoros and then Madagascar. However, the history of "pirates utopias" in these areas that he has added seems artificially jammed in. I felt a bit tricked by the title.

    5. Stuart

      The pirate theme is a minor note in this excellent travel saga. Rusty cargo ships, pickup trucks repaired with bundles of dried grass, AIDS-riddled hookers, and decaying colonial plantations are what it's really all about.

    6. Suz

      I'm obsessed with the Indian Ocean and pirates these days. What a fun book to read while lazing on a beach with my feet in the Indian Ocean!

    7. Danie Jansen

      Funny travelogue of Kevin Rushby visiting Mozambique, Comores and Madagascar. Perfect to read during a holiday.
