    Sabatini seems so far to have a pattern to his writing His stories stop when the hero has his happy ending and justice has been delivered to his villains, i.e actual scumbags for whom there is very little sympathy from the reader In all three books, there is also the woman who misunderstands the hero, the side villain that redeems himself, and the fool of a side character that makes life hard for the hero The hero is sardonic, honorable, stoic, steadfast, and faces adversity with a barbed tongue [...]

    Rafael Sabatini Oh, this generation doesn t even KNOW This is a classic swashbuckling novel by the author of Captain Blood, and it is deliciously over the top Handsome, powerful Oliver Tressilian, in love with the fair Rosamund, is working to overcome the opposition that Rosamund s sleazy brother and guardian are posing to their marriage R s brother Peter provokes Oliver into public threats, but Oliver controls himself for love of his fair one alas, Oliver s weasly brother Lionel kills Peter in [...]

    Sometimes roots of all evil lies within mankind, equally as a species.I won t say anything but that, because I try to respect both men and women equally, but Well, read the story and you shall understand what I mean The Sea Hawk, indeed, was a epic saga So much story within one book, so many things happened within one fourth of the book, and so many ups and downs altogether all made me captive with awe A story told so long ago, yet it remains to be one of its kind Thus The Sea Hawk is considered [...]

    Having already read two of Sabatini s previous works, Captain Blood and Scaramouche, this book was enjoyable but really predictable view spoiler its hero is a falsely condemned man who becomes a slave, then a captain who must engage in a constant war of wits against his own supposed allies and eventually overcome empires to win his one true love recycled plot of Captain Blood hide spoiler , aside from the interesting influence of having part if the novel set in a predominately Muslim country vie [...]

    Nach gef hlten eintausend Seiten streiche ich endg ltig die Segel und gebe diesen Roman auf Rafael Sabatini muss sich in einer unkreativen Schreibstimmung befunden haben, als er diese Geschichte aufs Papier brachte.Ich bin es zwar inzwischen gewohnt, dass das gl hende Verlangen seiner Hauptfigur nach einem nat rlich berirdisch sch nen weiblichen Wesen, zentrales Thema seiner Romane ist Aber in seinem wunderbaren Captain Blood f gte er es gekonnt zwischen Meer und Takelage ein.So verbringt der Se [...]

    I first came to Rafael Sabatini through his excellent 1922 pirate novel Captain Blood, and then read his fine 1921 swashbuckling tale, Scaramouche Continuing this journey through Sabatini s novels, I ve just completed his 1915 pirate intrigue, The Sea Hawk The Sea Hawk doesn t disappoint, living up exceedingly well to the high standards of Sabatini s other novels It s got everything adventure, drama, romance, and exotic locales There are some elements that echo Sabatini s other stories, but they [...]

    I have a bit of a weakness for swashbuckling tales of adventure, and I think it s fair to say that the greatest writer of such stories in the English language was Rafael Sabatini 1875 1950 And The Sea Hawk, originally published in 1915, is generally regarded as one of his finest works.Sabatini was born in Italy His mother was English and from the age of seventeen he made his home in England All his books were written in English.Like his even famousCaptain Bloodwhich came out in 1922 The Sea Haw [...]

    Sir Oliver Tressilian, a Cornish gentleman, finds refuge in the Middle East after his half brother s betrayal almost gets him sold into slavery There, he converts to Islam and joins the ranks of the Barbary pirates, building a fearsome reputation as Sakr el Bahr, the Sea Hawk, and awaiting his opportunity to take revenge for the fate that has been visited upon him.Much as I enjoy a good swashbuckling tale and pirate adventure, this one was just a little too full of unlikable characters and over [...]

    Ahhhh so fun I think Scaramouche may have been a better book, but I liked this one That s saying something because the Scaramouche audiobook was narrated by the wonderful Simon Vance, where this book was narrated by perhaps my least favorite narrator John Bolen.

    I saw the Errol Flynn film based on this novel many years ago, and along with Captain Blood and Scaramouche, it made me curious to read the works of Sabatini for starters, one of the great names in literary history Doesn t it just fall trippingly from the tongue So I got The Sea Hawk from the library, and read it and discovered that the film and the novel are not really that similar This should not have shocked me It is certainly not the first time a film has been very different from the source [...]

    This is a difficult Sabatini historical fiction to get into, I think, because none of the main characters are exactly well, likable We see some good character traits in the main character, like fidelity, but we also see him spending much of his time seeking vengeance and dreaming up punishments to exact his revenge.Like most of Sabatini s swashbuckling heroes, Sir Oliver Tressilian The Sea Hawk Sakr el Bahr is very capable, strong, daring arrogant, but he comes off much gruff, short tempered, [...]

    Fun Another reviewer described it as escapist, and it is Duels, kidnapping, treachery, betrayal, vengeance, love it s all there The language seems deliberately old fashioned but it s still easy to understand Sabatini even tries to get into the characters heads and presents them as individuals with choices rather than cardboard figures he can move at will My biggest problem is that he describes the slavery the Algerian Muslim pirates practice as picturesque than an abomination He seems to like [...]

    Rafael Sabatini s Captain Blood is a story I ve enjoyed in the past but it never prompted me to explore his other novels This is, apparently, the time for exploration It began with noticing this title which matches my favorite Errol Flynn movie Turns out the title is about all they took from the book, if indeed the book was at all involved.This is a much better tale, one of a family feud, betrayed brotherhood, and love gone awry which results in galley slavery, than a flirtation with Islam, and [...]

    My least favorite of Sabatini s so far.I don t understand why this is one of the most popular of his works If you are expecting much in the form of action and adventure you will be disappointed The Part One of the novel kept my interest but after that first ship battle it really slowed down The book was too long for how uneventful it was and yet the ending was too sudden The setting is quite exotic and vivid and one chapter The Slave Market although it does seem to deviate from the main plot it [...]

    I am so glad that initially took the recommendation to read Scaramouche also by Savatini , since I loved that I picked up Captain Blood, another big winner, and now Sea Hawk This book was a fast pacedswashbuckler that seemed to me what you would get if you combined Captain Blood with Ben Hur, then added a dash of Laurence of Arabia The story was well done and quite intriguing, the characters developed well and were relatable, and as I ve already stated, the pace kept me on the edge of my seat fo [...]

    I very much enjoyed this romantic adventure I know, I know, it s totally sexist But that needs to be forgiven, because it is just such good fun I can t give a book like this 5 stars, because it s not much than fun, and because of the imbalance between the strong, witty alpha male and the faithless, easily manipulated, weak minded but lovely and virtuous woman But it s just so fun, and pretty well written.

    Classic bit of swashbuckling, high seas adventure as a young nobleman is framed for a crime and, fleeing England, ends up as a corsair in a middle eastern rulers fleet.Fun, as it is not the typical pirate story setting and enough adventure that you can live with all the cliches of the genre.The book was a surprise, because in the movie, the Sea Hawk is very typical english pirate In the book he s Lawrence of Arabia.

    Listened to podcast at Librivox is 9GfJ Interesting view of Islam by the Italian author in 1915.

    FantasticOk so the English is old fashioned lots of desist sir and bounder and the characters are old fashioned in the the hero can be described fairly as stiff upper lip and playing with a straight bat The heroine swoons from time to time and demands her hero behaves as a proper gentleman The attitudes belong to a feudal age but for all that it is written with style and feeling The author who is from that age captures all the necessary important dialogue that seems tiresome at times but in refl [...]

    The summary given of the book here by is inaccurate, but mainly it is woefully inadequate in relating what a wonderful book this is I just finished it, for the third time, and I loved it at least as much as the previous readings.Do you like pirates Romance, lost and rediscovered Treachery exposed A tale driven by high testosterone levels, but civilized testosterone, which isn t to say feminized testosterone of the variety we get today A profound mastery of the English language Well then, this bo [...]

    Sabatini s best After accustomizing to the prose style of an adventure novel published in 1915, this story never let me go Every character is their own and everyone else s worst enemy, spinning webs of betrayal after surprising betrayal, honor, sabotage, and escape, against a colorful background of high seas action and intrigue in Moroccan bazaars This novel is entertainment at its finest.
