This was not like the book!
13 March 2014 | by TuranSee all my reviews

"Tales of the South Seas" was based on the book "A Son of the Sun" by Jack London. Sadly, it just used the character of David Grief and the one-time ally, Mauriri. The rest was fan fiction.

The best parts of the book were not even mentioned, like - collecting debts the rude way - difficult manners of man-eaters on the Solomon Islands - buying found gold coins from savages for a few pennies - getting sieged by pirates and sieging them back - a crook being spanked with "a particularly dead pig" - survival of a typhoon ... and, and, and...

Perhaps you like the series better if you have not read the book.
