When it came to my attention that pick-a-path books were finally making their way to the Kindle, I was deeply intrigued. I have a few downloaded now, but PIRATE ISLAND was the first one I read. Hah! Talk about evoking nostalgia! D M Potter and Blair Polly have put in a lot of environmental imagery and detail, the individual's passages being quite longer than the old paperbacks of the early 80s, yet maintaining story clarity throughout the various paths, some looping back on each other. The authors also sneak in asides like scientific facts and phenomenon (I learned what "Triboluminescence" is).
Some paths are fatal, one successful ending was a touch corny, and although the individual passages are long, there are only 32 paths available. There are British spellings used ("manoeuver" vs "maneuver", "colour" vs "color", etc), the dialogue of a native friend is bland and rather "non-native", and it seems the authors are keen on using the word "keen". However, these things aside, your average 9-12 year old isn't going to care. What they care about is adventure, a touch of danger, and the satisfaction of winning! And PIRATE ISLAND is an unearthed treasure in that respect.
