  • Riassunto

  • As the old sailor's adage goes, a woman on board invites bad luck, a superstition that turned out to be true for the enemies of notorious pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Read. As quick to draw their cutlasses as they were to fall in love, Anne and Mary sailed the Caribbean leaving a trail of looted treasure, outfoxed law enforcement, and treacherous ex-lovers (suitably dealt with) in their wake.

    Born hundreds of miles apart, both Anne and Mary were disguised as boys in their childhoods to escape poverty, propriety and disgrace, only to find freedom on the high seas. Anne, a poor fit for polite society, kicks her treacherous husband to the curb to turn pirate with the dashing Captain Jack. Meanwhile, Mary endures navy and army life disguised as a boy before being captured by pirates.

    When Mary and Anne’s worlds collide a love affair between the two ensues and adventure beckons - the Governor and Anne’s spurned husband continue to hunt them across the oceans, but even the shadow of the gallows couldn’t darken the blazing spirits of these incredible women somehow mostly forgotten by history.

    This series explores themes of equality, freedom, love and survival. Ultimately it is a story about the determination to live fully and freely without the limitation of gender, class or society - a life without restraint.

Loved it!

Great narration, fun to listen to. It has a few "intamate" scenes but nothing too detailed or mushy. I love the inclusion of LGBTQ relationships.

Entertaining

Hell Cats is an excellent audio production with engaging, convincing narrators & sound effects. The story is interesting, but the execution of the script is well done!

I caught my attention

I was confused at first because I’m not used to this format, but I wanted to give it a full episode before I gave up, and I’m glad I did because it’s really a good story so far! I’m excited to keep listening.

excellent production and great story

I loved how well written and exciting the story was. the characters are very well developed and complex and showed great nuance and learning over the 14 episodes. this is among the best Audible originals I've heard and it has a perfect bittersweet ending. the amazing part was how beautiful the songs were. I really wish they can produce an audio soundtrack of this show.

Exciting and intense

This was exciting, and sometimes very graphically violent. I found parts to be uncomfortable because of the violence. I’m not saying it was bad, just depends on your personality and whether you can handle that. I really, really liked all of the acting. Stellar acting in fact.

Couldn’t stop listening

Couldn’t stop listening to this incredible story about these amazing women. The voice acting and sound effects really put me in the story, they were so well done. I’m officially pirate obsessed.

Wow!! Amazing series and loved the characters

Wow.. this was amazing. The sounds design is like watching a series with your eyes closed. I loved all the characters and Anne & Mary had my heart till the end. The narration was so wonderful.

Perfect lockdown listen!!!

Beautifully written and produced. The characters were fascinating, imperfect, and still lovable. Lots of humour to counteract the intense scenes. I cheered, scolded, cackled and blubbered like a baby. A true drama to sweep you up and take you away.

one image isn't always worth a thousand words

very interesting experience, like watching a dumb yet exciting show on netflix, without image. Great to listen to while doing something else. sound design is incredible.

Good luck following the nonexisting storyline.

Theres no storyline to follow, I hadto listen first 3 eps two times and i couldnt get the hang of it, whats happening, where and to who. Readers are great, otherwice it was like watching a movie blindfolded. :(
