    First person captivity narrative told by an illiterate, loyal British marine, whose racist thoughts toward the native islanders will make the modern reader uncomfortable Though an imperialist story, the author does seem to be pointing at least one finger at the pretentious, inept British official for the danger that arises.Thanks to the Victorian Web for the middle chapter written by Wilkie Collins that s not included in my edition though its synopsis is.

    This is a book I had read part of in my complete Dicken s Christmas Stories, but it had left out the middle chapter authored by Wilkie Collins another one of my favourite 19th century authors I did enjoy it, and I liked the introduction giving the context to the piece written in part as a response to the Indian mutiny However, I prefer my industrial England Dickens over colonial Dickens.

    Written in the same style as Dadbid Copperfield, in the first person, looking back and being reflective As I read of Dickens, especially with his short stories, the I am impressed Dickens is renowned for a certain styles, topics and issues, fose if Lwayers, wealth, poor houses, the down trodden.In his short stories, such as this, you see a completely different side to his style, writings and topics This is quite a swashbuckling story of pirates, battles, imprisonment, escape and silver To add [...]

    Eh, it was a nice adventure story, a nice tale to read out loud, but the plot was a little underwhelming I really liked the speaker though, Gill Davis He s a bit snarky and very self righteous, and completely unaware of his flaws to the point that it is enjoyable to delight in just how biased of a storyteller he is It is also interesting to his character develop as a result of the pirate invasion The story was written as a response to the recent Indian rebellion and the Storming of Seringapatam [...]

    I m pretty sure Wilkie Collins wrote nearly all of this I can t believe Dickens had anything to do with it

    In order to read the whole story, I had to hunt down the middle section Other than that annoyance, it was a good story and kept my interest Any Dickens fan should read this.
