Bloody Jack is an awesome pirate (and also a girl coming of age). Narrator Katherine Kellgren does an excellent job bringing the characters to life. ( )

At the end of the 18th century, Mary thinks she was about 8 years old or so when her parents died and she was literally put out on the street and left to fend for herself. She managed to join up with some other homeless kids and they begged and stole and did what they could for money and food. When she was a few years older, Mary decided to dress like a boy and she managed to get on a ship as a ship’s boy. But no one knew she was really girl as they went about their adventures on the sea.

I listened to the audio and loved the accent. I think it was a Cockney accent (had to look that up!). I quite enjoyed this and it gets the extra ¼ star for the audio. The story was fun, too. It’s odd, but whether I listen to or read adventure, I tend to not pay as much attention to the adventure parts. Odd, I know. But I still quite liked the story and I will be continuing the series.

I'm really torn about "Bloody Jack." The first half is a quick, exciting read. But the love story introduced in the last half bogs things down quickly and strangely changes Jacky's character completely, and not for the better. She goes from being a strong, independent heroine to a flirty, weepy girly-girl in a matter of pages. I can't help but feel the book is merely masquerading as a feminist tale when really at its heart it believes that girls just want to wear frilly dresses and be fawned over by a pretty boy. I also really feel that the character of Jacky isn't nearly as endearing as L.A. Meyer thinks she is.

There's also a strange sexual predation undercurrent that runs throughout the whole story, most obviously seen in the pedophilic sailor that wants Jacky, but also in pretty much every other nook and cranny of the story. I don't think this was necessarily intended by the author, but it is there and I have no idea what it means. The storyline involving said pedophilic sailor also strangely goes nowhere and feels unresolved.

The above points might lead you to think I'd give this a negative review, but the first half was so enjoyable that I can't help but give it three stars. I'll probably read the next installment in the series as well, just to see what scrapes Jacky gets into next. Perhaps the books get less thematically bizarre as they go on. ( )
