Book Description

The early 1600s: A time when swashbuckling pirates dominated the high seas. A time when the Spanish Inquisition persecuted pagans, devil worshipers, and Lutherans. A time when exploring the New World meant battling the elements, the Spanish navy, and very angry monkeys.

Duchess Prudy Buckingham has been saddled with an arranged marriage to a Japanese warlord. Samurai have been dispatched to escort the feisty English duchess back to Japan. Much to the dismay of Koji, the lead samurai, Prudy is more interested in something else. Her father, an English naval officer, has disappeared, and she desperately needs to find him.

While in the Caribbean, they are attacked by the notorious Rat Bastard, a ship full of seedy, smelly, and altogether unpleasant pirates. Prudy sees this as her chance to get out of the arranged marriage and rescue her father. Koji and the other samurai are charged to protect her, and so have little choice but to accompany her on this new adventure. Working together, this band of cutthroats and misfits must find Prudy's father, pillage the rich merchant ships, battle the Spanish navy, and above all, avoid the Flamenco dancers.

Samurai Pirates is approximately 67,000 words.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! October 28, 2010
Verified Purchase
Jim Ollhoff is either a literary genius, or completely insane. Either way, he has crafted a delightful novel with Samurai Pirates. This book drops you directly into the hilarity with the opening pages, and does not relent. The only paragraph that didn't make me laugh was the last one, where I realized that the book had ended. This story, much like those by Douglas Adams and Carl Hiaasin, made me laugh out loud continuously . Why, you ask? I don't want to give any spoilers, so I'll say this: Flamenco Dancing Captains, Organized Monkey Attacks, Vulgar Cardinals, Nude Catapulting Madmen, and this line: "Wonderful things?" Asked Koji. "From where I sit, I'm looking up the ass of a dead possum." If that won't convince you to read this book, then you've obviously navigated here by accident from the "I have no sense of humor" section. Buy this book, you won't regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Nautical Romp October 2, 2010
Verified Purchase
Take one part "Pirates of the Caribbean," one part "The Last Samurai," throw in a dose of "Monty Python" and stir it all together, and you have the funny romp that is "Samurai Pirates." Fast-paced and full of action, but always tongue in cheek, the book had many laugh-out-loud moments for me, especially the delightfully absurd spectacle of Spanish Captain Garcia trying to teach his crew the fine art of flamenco dancing. And when the samurais try to fit in with the colorful cast of pirates, the culture shock is almost too funny to bear. If you're looking for a light read that'll put a smile on your face, this book fits the bill.

2.0 out of 5 stars It looked like someone's role playing game October 19, 2014
Verified Purchase
It would have helped if the author had read a history book. The story was very predictable. It looked like someone's role playing game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Action and Adventure on the High Seas July 14, 2011
Verified Purchase
A great mix of humor and action with an eccentric mix of colorful characters is what you'll get here, as the plot quickly unwinds to a very satisfying conclusion. Here's to hoping the adventure continues. Sign me up for any and all future installments please. A great value indeed.
