“Then he began to pity the great fish that he had hooked. He is wonderful and strange and who knows how old he is, he thought. Never have I had such a strong fish nor one who acted so strangely. Perhaps he is too wise to jump. He could ruin me by jumping or by a wild rush. But perhaps he has been hooked many times before and he knows that this is how he should make his fight. He cannot know it is only one man against him, nor that it is an old man. But what a great fish he is and what will he bring in the market if the flesh is good. He took the bait like a male and he pulls like a male and his fight has no panic in it. I wonder if he has plans or if he is just as desperate as I am?”

Empire of Blue Water is a comprehensive history of the life of Captain Henry Morgan and the Golden Age of Piracy. It was an ok read but definitely a top choice for pirate enthusiasts 😂 (review link in profile)

"If it's a myth, and it partly is, the world will take the myth.  But you can't attempt to do what Morgan and his men did without seeing yourselves as a prince of the New World, deserving of every wonder it possesses.  Men like that don't live for very long, but they are not easily forgotten." #EmpireOfBlueWater #StephanTalty #ExcellentRead #CaptainMorgan #PiratesLifeForMe #FirstBookOfTheYear #StayReading #StayLearning #BookWorm #Instabook #BookLife #BookReader

It was hard to fit this years books into one frame. I didn't really think I read more this year than past years but I did by quite a margin. I was all over the place from non-fiction to historical fiction to science fiction to biographies. 
Below are my favorites for each category:
Historical Fiction: The Source - Michener 
Science Fiction: Seveneves - Stephenson
Non-Fiction: Sapiens - Harari

A bit slow to start but this book finishes strong with a great tale and true story of Captain Henry Morgan. 
You may know the story. If not go Wikipedia it. Or even better read this book. 
In the time when the New World was being born and capitalism was changing the world the privateers (or pirates) followed the money and with disregard to religion or morals. It was everybody for themselves and the Spanish empire was crumbling under the pressures of the changing economy that favored individual freedoms. Henry Morgan and his motley crew of privateers/pirates invaded and pillaged just like the Spanish had done to the Incas. Really they got what was coming to them. They put so many on the rack during the inquisition many of whom fled to be pirates and got to return the favor by being unmercifully brutal and putting the settlers on the rack (and worse stuff) They were so brutal that the settlers didn't put up a fight. Not for the Spanish crown that was behind on payments and fighting on the fumes of the crusade. Money won and Henry Morgan was unstoppable.

Empire of Blue Water, Stephan Talty
4,5 ⭐

In this book Talty take us on the steps of the 17th century privaters, with Henry Morgan at their head. Armed with commissions and muskets, the bucaneers raided spanish cities in the New World and established the british presence in Jamaica.
Talty's writing is vivid and he did a good job at reminding the economical and political situation of the time and explaining the privaters lives un their context.
A must read for everyone interested in the pirate's history.
