    An excellent book

    I had never heard of Rafael Sabatini before. However, when I was browsing for a good book, I had spotted Captain Blood. I wasn't exactly sure how it would turn out, but I decided to give it a try. It was surely worth it! The imagery, the language and the setting Sabatini uses truly captivates the reader! As soon as I had finished Captain Blood, I couldn't wait to find another book by Sabatini. Soon enough I discovered The Sea Hawk and it was even better than Captain Blood! What caught me more with this book was the betrayal that the characters exhibited in this book against the main character, Sir Oliver Tressilian. Oliver's actions and the choices he makes to exact revenge on those who wronged him really make the reader feel sympathy for him. Also, Sabatini writes in a way to make the reader see all sides of the story and not just side with the main character and the events that follow in the tale. The fears, the doubts and the weaknesses the characters feel in this book are ones that all humans feel, it's almost a little difficult to remember that they are only fictional. The way Sabatini describes the characters and their emotions in this book makes them seem much more real and complex as actual true human beings. The brutality in this book is a little severe, however it gives off a real-world feeling to it. This truly is a book that will bring you into its world. I highly recommend it.

    Hard to follow

    The story is great, but this edition is a mess. Most of the "w's" aren't translated as "w," and there are random page and paragraph breaks. Not to mention all the other random letters that aren't properly translated, like "h" becoming "li" and vice versa. All those errors make for a tough read.
