Audience Reviews for The Pirates of Somalia

  • Feb 17, 2018
    The rapport between characters in this is great as an aspiring journalist tries to make a name for himself by visiting Somalia and reporting on sea piracy. Engrossing and also funny, whilst it may not be entirely true it is very entertaining.
