Review of ‘The Legend of Ron Anejo’

Posted on Updated on

In The Legend of Ron Anejo by Ed Teja, we really don’t know who the narrator is until he meets the title character, vagabond sailor, Ron Anejo. After buying a boat and setting sail for the sunny Caribbean, the narrator, begins running into all sorts of trouble. He ends up on a small island, forced to sell his boat and find another way to sustain himself. It’s there he meets Anejo, who immediately pulls him into his erratic orbit, setting off a series of adventures that could be a long-running TV series, a kind of buccaneering version of ‘Gilligan’s Island.’

Punchy dialogue, graphic descriptions of just about everything, and escapades coming out the ying-yang, this is a book that will have you chuckling almost from the first page. From hapless day charters to a clumsy attempt at smuggling, our heroes (or, perhaps better, anti-heroes) never miss an opportunity to snatch defeat from the snapping jaws of victory, and entertain the heck out of you in the process.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review. Thank you for the opportunity, Ed Teja. Oh, yes, and I give it five stars.
