This is definitely a great way to own a lot of Sabatini stories, especially if you're interested in the lesser-known ones. Whether at his best or worst, Sabatini delivers adventures that are exciting, clever and fun. That said, however, these particular editions have many typos, something that is slowly driving me crazy. Some make you pause while you work out the actual meaning, ("I had been there a mouth," instead of month) which is distracting. More frequent are inconsistencies in characters' names and titles. A small complaint in the grand scheme of things, I know, but I do appreciate good proofreading.
"Captain Blood" and "The Sea Hawk" are great swashbucklers--circumstances force a good man to go bad, but he vanquishes his enemies, and he wins both redemption and the girl in the end. The girl, a sheltered thing, shows initiative and moxie, and helps the hero win out. Great escapist literature.
