Outstanding rendition of classic swashbuckler
This is an outstanding audiobook on several levels. First, the narration is superb. The narrator has a broad range of characterizations that are beleivable and well maintained throughout the narration. Second, the clarity of the audio recording is excellent. Third, this happens to be one of the classic swashbucklers by Rafael Sabatini. I am hoping audible will add Sabatini's greatest work, Scaramouche, to the library, hopefully narrated by Mr. Whitfield. Until then, Captain Blood is an extremely satisfying and high quality recording.

Another great book I had never heard of.
I hesitated before ordering Captain Blood. I shouldn’t have.
This story has its share of swashbuckling adventure, but it is mostly about the trials and tribulations of one man, Peter Blood. Blood’s miseries include a false accusation, slavery and an untouchable woman.
In spite of his oppressions, Blood triumphs in the end. How he does is a great story. This unabridged version moves along so well, I don’t see how an editor could leave anything out to create an abridged version.
So well read by Robert Whitfield that I also bought Scaramouche by the same narrator and the same author, Rafael Sabatini. Audio quality is excellent.
