LIVEBLOG: Doctor Who - The Curse of the Black Spot

8:23 pm, EST:
I'm back again, folks, with a new liveblog ready to go. Tonight is the pirate episode, which can only mean one thing. Yep, sexy homicidal mermaids, Pirate Amy, and PIRATES! My weird prediction for the week: Rory is immortal, and he dies again, only to come back to life as a sexy shirtless merman or something. (The episode is about a siren, so mermen aren't too different or out-of-place.) My usual bet, ready to go! *grabs bag of Jelly Babies in preparation*

A review of Capt. Hook by J.V. Hart

This book, in the vein of Wicked, is about the teenage years of a classic literary villain, in this case, the epic Captain Jas. Hook from Peter Pan (and Peter Pan in Scarlet- another great book.) James "King Jas." Matthew, a black-haired, troublemaking boy estranged from most of his family, has been enrolled into Eton College, where he is determined to leave a mark as the greatest underclassman in the history of the school. He leads his fellow Oppidans to victory in a brutal sport known as the Wall Game, falls in love with a Sultana, and eventually, with his best friend Jolly Roger, ends up on a pirate ship run by a cruel, blood-thirsty priest.

Every time I read this book, I keep wanting more and more. If they make a movie of this book (which they should) Jas. should be played by Tom Felton, aka Draco Malfoy. This would actually be a good casting choice, seeing as his Harry Potter character's father is played by Jason Isaacs, who played Capt. Hook in a 2005 movie version. The sequel has yet to come out yet, and I keep checking Amazon.com everyday for updates (which haven't popped up as far as I can tell.) I've read this book about 5 times, and I congratulate JV Hart on a fantastic novel worthy of anyone's bookshelf.

Final Rating: A++
