Love the story
What made the experience of listening to The Fortunes of Captain Blood the most enjoyable?
I love the Captain Blood series by Rafael Sabatini, Wish someone would come out with a new movie or series (along the line of Horatio Hornblower from the BBC). I have read these books as hard copies and paperbacks but I wanted the audiobooks as well.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fortunes of Captain Blood?
It is a series of adventures that could have been included in the original Captain Blood book, but you know these took place during his reign as a pirate after escaping slavery. The last story in this book is one where he saves a woman from a bad husband. One thing that makes that story memorable is the chivalry. Captain Blood may be a pirate out of necessity but he is a real gentleman. Each story is good though.
What aspect of Michael Maloney’s performance would you have changed?
I think he narrated a little bit too fast. I found it hard to understand what he was saying because it never got much chance to sink in.
Who was the most memorable character of The Fortunes of Captain Blood and why?
Peter Blood, of course.
Any additional comments?
The original Captain Blood Odyssey is much better to listen to than this one, but there were no other narrators to choose from. This is the only audiobook for The Fortunes of Captain Blood that I can find anywhere. I just want all these books in all formats.
