"Captain Rum: A Wondrous Journey"
Edited by Prof. H.D. (Bert) Lampluck
When an Oxford Professor stumbles upon an old naval Captain's log, he unwittingly discovers what many scholars now agree is one of the greatest maritime adventures in history.
In 1821, Captain Fintan McAdam set sail from London, solo, in search of adventure. During his journey, he discovered incredible new worlds and interacted with their amazing inhabitants. They forced him to confront his enemies within, learning much about himself.
Captain Rum, as told in McAdam's own words through his journal, is a tale of discovery, despair and delight. It will keep you enthralled through many a stormy night.

*I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
The author of this book is obviously very creative! His imagination made for really good and unique story, and I quite enjoyed it. Also, someone get me that bird!!
It felt a little bogged down at times, slow in some places, but overall I I think this was an entertaining read and recommend it especially for those who like historical sea-faring, journal entry type stories.
