"The best way to learn about your ancestors is to put yourself in the same environment they were in. It isn't enough to know what they did. If you really want to know them, you need to learn about what shaped them into who they were." Those were Ana's words. Her death left Jack with the realizations that he knew little of this amazing woman who was his adopted mother.
The first step of Jack's quest takes him to the last place she visited before his adoption, the island of Haiti. New friends, unexpected events, and the island itself give Jack a greater understanding of Ana, and ultimately himself.
Come with Jack as he begins his Journey.
Jack, as a character, was someone that I liked, but his story didn't quite draw me in as much as I had hoped it would. On the other hand, his adoptive mother, Aninha (Ana) was someone I found to be extremely fascinating, and I'd love to learn more about her experiences and background at some point. I also liked a lot of the secondary characters, especially Mack, the captain of the cargo vessel, as well as Jim and Amy and Anita. I also liked Dana quite a bit. She's Jim and Amy's daughter, and I found her to be entertaining on a number of occasions because of her interactions with Jack.
On the whole, I did enjoy Trail of the Raven: Haiti, and I'm interested in seeing where Jack's travels will take him next. My rating is 4/5 Platypires.
