Captain Blood

Captain Blood is an adventure novel by Rafael Sabatini, originally published in 1922. It concerns the sharp-witted Dr. Peter Blood, an Irish physician, who is convicted of treason in the aftermath of the Monmouth rebellion in 1685, and enslaved on the Caribbean island of Barbados. He escapes and becomes a pirate. [Wikipedia]

Captain Blood was the basis for the Academy Award-nominated swashbuckling film that rocketed Errol Flynn and Olivia de Haviland to stardom in Hollywood. The fast-paced historical fiction of Rafael Sabatini is often compared with that of Robert Louis Stevenson and Alexandre Dumas. [DSayers]

Excellent !!!

(5 Sterne)

being a truck driver presently, I have listened to hundreds upon hundreds of audio books. This ranks among the best. I highly recommended it.

Enjoyable Pirate's Tale

(4 Sterne)

An honorable pirate, forced into the profession by circumstances beyond his control. An enjoyable listen. If the style of the reader for the first 3 chapters annoys you like it does me, hold on and don't give up - the readers improve from there. :)

DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS

(5 Sterne)

A masterpiece of swashbuckling adventure. Cruel kings, crooked ministers, falsely convicted genteel doctor, bully slaver, beautiful young lady, sea battles aplenty, and an ending of poetic justice, all read by a group of very good readers. What else can I say?

swashbuckler

(5 Sterne)

chop this one up to a fantastic story of Pirate tears pirates governors and heroes. I was always waiting for the next chapter and always satisfied and waiting for the next. wonderful story of adventure drama and romance. it's hard to beat an old author.

Written with passion

(5 Sterne)

An excellent example of the writings of Raphaël Sabatini, the only problem that I could perceive is the fact that some of the chapters were recorded with very low sodium which was difficult to enjoy.

most excellent!

(5 Sterne)

great book. even though there were multiple narrators 99 and a half percent of them were great. I really can't remember any bad ones but who knows. thank you LibriVox and thank you Rafael sabatini

(5 Sterne)

One of the best classic novels concerned with pirates. Entertaining from start to finish. The multiple changes in narrators in this recording is a bit distracting, but still it was very enjoyable.

amazing

(5 Sterne)

a lovely swashbuckling tale of valor, courage, adventure, and daring; sweetened with a hint of romance that gives purpose and romance to the brazen and witty captain Blood.
