The last book of the trilogy feels like a second half of the second one to the point where I really do not understand why these two could not be combined - this is actually what I did with my copies (Calibre rules) and as the result the reading experience was quite smooth.

Everything I said about the second installment applies here so I could just copy my review of that one and paste it here. Anyway, this is a collection of 6 shortish stories about further exploits of Peter Blood; all of them ta

Unlike the first book of this series, which was a single story throughout, this is a collection of short(ish) stories that are very loosely bound together. It was no surprise to me - as a huge Sabatini fan - that I enjoyed every story in the book. His writing is as smooth as Captain Blood when his back is against the wall. Plot twists, adventure, revenge, and pirates, oh my!

Rafael Sabatini is a huge influence on my work. The plot lines are so cleverly crafted and no author turns a phrase quite as well as Sabatini. I fell in love with Captain Blood about as soon as I opened the book and the opening phrase to The Tavern Knight is still one of my personal favorites. Scaramouche is also a fantastic historical adventure epic and even The Sea Hawk is enjoyable if you can get past the fact that the protagonist’s love interest is the most annoying female character written ...more

Captain Blood is a loveable rogue who fights for the good rather than the riches as most pirates do or so we are led to believe. I am really enjoying the tales of swashbuckling heroes. Captain Blood reminds me of our modern day comic super heroes who go about teaching the baddies some long overdue lessons through showing them up and bringing them low. I have read a couple of other classic authors whose tales are of a similar nature and I have thoroughly enjoyed them. I shall look for more.
read between summer 1970 & summer 1974

The first book was the best because it was one coherent story with an injustice and redemption, but the other two books of short stories were still quite good. They were like the friend who you can always depend on to say "yes" when you want to go to the game, go to the movie or come over for a few beers. For me these books were dependable, entertaining and bred a bit of nastalgia for characters and time that in this ideal form I'm sure never wholly existed, but it's nice to think about.

Some of these short stories started to feel like retreads, so I liked Captain Blood Returns better. Elements of the characterization also felt a little off to me.

Іще одна хороша пригодницька книжка, де кожна підлота отримує по заслузі, а панянки отримують знаходять своїх рятівників.

Sabatini short stories that are as sharp as a rapier. Fun, interesting reading.
