Miss wanna die. This game is alive? Or zombi capture servers? Sniper oneshoting tanks Good day. We all know that Admiral neville uber range dmg.
Pls balance - nerf it, too OP. Oneshot on defence and tank heroes? This book ultimately frustrated me. I really enjoyed the chronicle of searching for the ship, the story of Bannister and the backstory of both the men at the center of the story.
But what has stuck in my mind since finishing are the things that were frankly unnecessary to the story or seemed shoe horned in.
There are several times that the author and men make rather objectifying statements about women, which may have been said, but really didn't need to be included in the book.
It only added to t This book ultimately frustrated me. It only added to the men's unlikability, which when coupled with arrogance, tempers and entitlement ultimately made me unsympathetic toward them and their quest.
I started rooting for someone else to find the ship before them. It's also clear that these men, the author included, care nothing about the Dominican Republic other than the money they can extract from an already struggling country.
The story of the man on the motorcycle with a gun seemed included only for the purpose of showing how "savage" and scary the Dominicans are.
The anecdote of Chatterton receiving help with a flat tire appeared thrown in add an afterthought and does not convince me of his so-called change of heart about the people and culture of this island nation.
Nothing else points to that conclusion. I would recommend this book for the stories and history, but caution against becoming too enamoured with the central characters add their true colors really shine through at the end.

The story of how the wreck was found, the stories behind the men who found it, and the history behind the wreck and the pirate himself.
The book was well written and well paced. The parts about the Golden Fleece and the history were broken up by chapters about the divers, John Chatterton and John Mattera.
I also appreciated the general research given about pirates, and learned some interesting new facts about them!
One example I loved was that pirate ships were based on democracy, with every man having an equal vote on what they would do and where they would go.
Another kind of cool thing- pirates were reimbursed for body parts lost in battle. The amount varied depending on the limb lost. I highly recommend to anyone looking for an adventurous non-fiction read!
Mar 23, Whitney rated it it was amazing. And no one knows about it. Amazing characters, history, adventure, SCUBA diving, and all focused on one of the greatest pirate stories of all time.
Loved everything about this book and highly recommend. Summary: John Chatterton and John Mattera are legends in the field of SCUBA diving and deep wreck salvaging who come together for the most epic quest of their lifetime; to discover a long lost pirate ship of one of the most notorious pirates of all time.
Joseph Bannister is the captain of the Golden Fleece and though his adventures are more notorious than Blackbeard and Captain Kidd, his name has been lost in time.
This book is the true story of Chatteron and Mattera's adventure and discovery of this pirate ship. Jul 24, Perry rated it really liked it Shelves: nonfiction.
You've seen it all, you've seen it all Buffett, "A Pirate Looks at Forty. Arrr, what jewels and gold there be! Bannister was an infamous and legendary English pirate who was a well-respected merchant captain who transported goods from England to Jamaica, until he ran off with his vessel, the Golden Fleece , and began a buccaneer's life during the Golden Age of Piracy generally referring to the late 17th century.
They successfully faced down two Royal Navy warships in a breathtaking battle, which Mr. Kurson colorfully describes in the book. If successful, the discovery of the Golden Fleece would only be the second time a pirate ship has been discovered and positively identified.

The story of this hugely expensive and once in a lifetime deep-sea discovery is filled with suspense, risk, frustration, exhaustion and thrills.
Robert Kurson was masterful at putting together the pieces. The pirate captain who steered the Golden Fleece was more notorious than Blackbeard, a real-life Jack Sparrow.
His name was Joseph Bannister, a well-respected merchant captain in the mid-late 17th century. As captain of the Golden Fleece, he was tasked with delivering goods via transatlantic voyages between London and Jamaica.
One day Bannister risked his life by stealing the ship, picked up a hundred bold men to serve as crew, and began a more profitable life as a pirate.
If you like true adventure stories, this is a must-read. Aug 15, Fritz Schneider rated it it was ok. I feel like Kurson hired a year-old boy to ghostwrite this book for him.
Huh huh, grown men snuggling. The writing is repetitive and longwinded, and characters are one-dimensional comic book renderings of what I assume are real people.
The former gangster! The fiercely independent millionaire! But, uh, sounds totally plausible to me. There is a story here and I finished the book, but the writing is pretty bad.
Recommended for: fans of Steven Seagal. Jun 22, Cynthia rated it it was amazing Shelves: books-read-in At that time it was a Spanish colony but the French and English were there in abundance as well for the lucrative trade opportunities.
Bannister, the English pirate at the center of this book, was an unlikely villain. This short book is over way too soon.
The only negative about it is how tiny the maps are. Thank you to the publisher for providing an ARC.

Because underwater treasure hunts can be brutally tedious, the author fills the pages with biographies of the major players, a Advanced Reading Copy review Due to be published June 16, "Pirate Hunters" by Robert Kurson is kind of a sequel to his break-out book "Shadow Divers" about the discovery and identifying of a sunken German U-Boat.
Because underwater treasure hunts can be brutally tedious, the author fills the pages with biographies of the major players, a history of pirate culture and legend, the story of Bannister and a lot of related stories from fellow divers.
It all adds up to a suspenseful tale as the search team races against competitors, restrictive governments, dwindling finances and despairing frustrations.
It is all written in a very manly, gung-ho style that brings to mind Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey—Maturin series with Russell Crowe as the personification of Chatterton, of course.
This could be a turn-off for fans of narrative non-fiction that is more academic and less sensational. A gory chapter on shipboard amputations, for example, is completely lurid and unnecessary.
There is plenty to like about this book, but a bit too much testosterone for my taste. Sep 22, Susanna - Censored by GoodReads rated it really liked it.
Covers both the search for a pirate ship from the "golden age of piracy" roughly off of Santo Domingo in the Caribbean, but also the pasts of the main searchers, from Vietnam to the fringes of the mafia, and the lives of the pirates.
The vessel being hunted is the Golden Fleece, which fought off two Royal Navy frigates which grossly out-manned and out-gunned it, though it sank in doing it, in Finding a bona fide pirate wreck is, by the way, reckoned here as being maybe the toughest thing in salvage diving.
I'd say "Arr! Though they did have parrots. This such an wonderful story. The backgrounds of the characters are amazing. The narration was great.
Ray Porter is the perfect voice for this story. Mar 10, Dorine rated it really liked it Recommends it for: historial and adventure fans of non-fiction.

Original review posted at The Zest Quest , a lifestyle site celebrating my quest for a zestful life. Seventeenth century pirates could elicit not only fear in their wake but instill cooperation without firing a shot, just by their reputation shared by survivors.
Their quest to find the ship of Joseph Bannister, a seventeenth century pirate who opposed the British Navy in an epic battle that he won, has been rife with adventure and mystery, some of which is still unresolved today.
John Chatterton and John Mattera are each famous in their own right as divers. They join Tracy Bowden, a legend in treasure hunting, when he requests their help.
He tells them a story about an English sea captain who went rogue and became a notorious pirate. Why would a successful sea captain with an impeccable record toss it all away to become a pirate?
These are just two of the many interesting questions answered in this true story that reads like a novel. I read the first quarter of this book fairly fast but then got hung up and slowed down for several chapters.
After that, I zoomed through to the end of the novel. Pirates were once used to keep some countries from profiting in trade. When trade agreements were made, pirates became the hunted.
What I admire most about this book is the commitment of the treasure hunting team and their families, as well as the dedication of Robert Kurson to be able to put their story into a readable format.
The amount of research, the years spent and the hours of interviews by all parties proves their love of solving a mystery. I have such admiration for that kind of dedication.
Anyone this devoted to their dream deserves an award for their efforts. The cost alone could scare many, as well as the dangerous situations faced, but the years of devotion have given me a whole new respect for those in this story who followed their dream as far as it would take them.

Did you grow up waiting for Jacques Cousteau's weekly TV show to expose you to a slice of the world explored aboard the legendary Calypso that seemed so strange, so remarkable, so colorful it was hard to believe it was real?
Having been totally bowled over, nay, blown away, Did you grow up waiting for Jacques Cousteau's weekly TV show to expose you to a slice of the world explored aboard the legendary Calypso that seemed so strange, so remarkable, so colorful it was hard to believe it was real?
Having been totally bowled over, nay, blown away, by Kurson's Shadow Divers a number of years ago, I knew I'd have to read this.
I feared, however, that I'd be disappointed and, in all honesty, I didn't find this one quite as captivating as Shadow Divers , but it's not a fair comparison.
This is an engaging, entertaining book, even if Shadow Divers was better. The history and research angle of this book - with visits to little-used, unique collections in far flung libraries - is pretty gratifying, and, in many ways, it's the archival search that drives the story.
Conversely, the diving seemed incidental, in large part because the water wasn't that deep and, ultimately, this story isn't really about diving And my guess is that readers will react differently to Kurson's intermittent chapters profiling the key players in the drama.
At times they felt to me like diversions and fillers, while at other points I found the personal histories every bit as compelling as the search for the pirate ship.
Given what he had to work with, Kurson did about as well as he could converting a slow-moving, laborious, methodical investigation into an at-least-somewhat dramatic yarn.
Despite Kurson's best efforts, it's hard to correlate this with the Johnny Depp Pirates of the Carribean movie series. Instead, think Nicolas Cage in National Treasure without the chase scenes, romance, music, action, etc.
In other words, there's just less epic stuff in this book than readers enjoyed in Shadow Divers. That doesn't mean it's not interesting, and, maybe, if you haven't read Shadow Divers , your expectations might not be as high.
OK, OK, a significant percentage of the modern story feels like its Shadow Divers leftovers or spillover Still, the cumulative effort, the total package, was interesting, informative, and sufficiently gratifying to justify the time and effort.

I really enjoyed this true tale of two adventurous men who take on the project of locating a pirate ship that sank in the waters of the Dominican Republic.
From start to finish, I found myself enthralled with not only the search for the famed Golden Fleece, but the backstory of the two men who took on what turned out to be the find of a lifetime.

Yes, please. As I'd hoped, I learned a great deal about pirating from this book. Among some of the interesting facts I found were that: - some pirate crew members would disguise themselves as women to remain inconspicuous until the ships they preyed on came closer - they didn't actually make prisoners walk the plank - that's just in movies; but they did love parrots When I found Pirate Hunters listed on my library website, I knew I had to read it.
Among some of the interesting facts I found were that: - some pirate crew members would disguise themselves as women to remain inconspicuous until the ships they preyed on came closer - they didn't actually make prisoners walk the plank - that's just in movies; but they did love parrots and trained them to talk - a few women have been pirates, but they're only a few among thousands All of the information about pirating and the ingenious Captain Bannister alone was enough to make me like this book.
But what I didn't expect was to be blown away by the characters themselves. The men who discovered The Golden Fleece and the people they met during their search led such interesting lives that their pasts eclipsed the discovery of a pirate ship itself.
From John Chatterton - view spoiler [ Supervisors could see that Chatterton was different - not just because he slithered into difficult places or refused to quit even after his body went numb from the cold, but because of the way that he saw.
During times of zero visibility, he used his body, helmet, and even his fins to decipher the contours of his work space, assembling the shapes he encountered into three-dimensional diagrams in his mind.
He was at the center of a quintessential mob sit-down like he'd seen in the movies. And he'd won. He told people he was chasing a feeling - the moment when, after years of struggle, and after a thousand people say you're crazy, you seen something sparkle in the water and grab on to it.
He has the chance to do something great - something beyond what he ever imagined for himself; he just has to figure out what it is. And in the seventeenth century, the hardest and greatest thing you can do is turn pirate.
