I didn't know who I was. The official story was shipwreck, and, though I know there was more to it than that, I never asked. Life for me began eight years ago when my uncles fished me from the sea. Keeping me had meant one more blanket on a floor and one more plate on a table that had little enough to start with. I was quick to find ways to make up the difference. I had skills that helped me to pick my marks and contribute my share. I also had plenty to learn about life on the street. That learning took enough time and energy that I didn't think much about my past, until recently. It was getting harder and harder to keep my own secrets. My uncles knew, but it had always been easier for everyone to pretend. I am an orphan, a thief, and now a sailor. I didn't know who I was and if the cannon fire was any indication, my options for who I will be are about to become severely limited.

a great pirate adventure
Yes, it's a rollicking good sea adventure, complete with pirates and feisty females. I especially liked not being distracted by gratuitous sex scenes.
Yes. This is comparable, with good pace and cadence, and good character differentiation.

Twelfth Night with Swashbuckling Spin
Definitely - I loved the performance. It's a challenging book with many colorful characters and the narrator did a marvelous job.
It definitely owes a little to the classic Twelfth Night twins template... but that's basically just the springboard. If Katniss Everdeen were the lead character in Treasure Island you might be on the right track. It's a big epic tale with wonderful characters and a spunky heroine that kind of reminded me of Merida in Brave.
No - but i will look out for more his work. His a wonderful narrator - versatile and he brings great energy to the characterizations. It was a delightful listen and he really brought the characters to life.
It's pretty long - so that wasn't possible... but was definitely eager to keep listening.
