Haven’t read it for years but isn’t it a bit like Dracula in that what it inspired and the tropes it developed are a lot better than the actual plot?

Yeah that seems likely, the ending is so rushed and Silver just kind of disappears, it’s really odd.

they bloody loved marking spots with X

Fucking criminals. Sick of them being idolised tbh, throw them all in prison or make them get real jobs.

It’s actually pronounced to rhyme with pilates

Really like the etymology of the word pirate.
Does anyone know why pirates are called pirates without googling?

Please, a monkey could do that. It’s all a front.
