it was amazing
bookshelves: historical-fiction
Read from January 11 to 13, 2011

Yes, it's almost 100% historically inaccurate. But it's a swashbuckler through and through and a heck of a fun read. Sabatini writes about revenge and loyalty and double crossing and triple crossing every bit as well as Alexandre Dumas and doesn't get near the credit for it, and that's just wrong. If you've seen the Errol Flynn movie that was adapted from this book, you've only seen about 2/3 the story, and not nearly enough of how Peter Blood became a better man as Captain Blood.
