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 Pete Rafael Sabatini!

The Sea Hawk is a novel by Rafael Sabatini, originally published in 1915. What we have here is a story of the sea, betrayal and love. In the tradition of these older books we have the set up, the recovery, the chance for revenge, and the endgame.

The Sea Hawk is a novel by Rafael Sabatini, originally published in 1915. The story is not your hyper paced modern adventure but rather a steady series of events that explore the characters and their motivations. I was enthralled by the story slipping an episode/chapter between every other podcast I've been listening to, and was happily satisfied by the ending.

Rafael Sabatini (29 April 1875 – 13 February 1950) was an Italian-English writer of romance and adventure novels. He is best known for his worldwide bestsellers: The Sea Hawk (1915), Scaramouche (1921), Captain Blood (. The Odyssey of Captain Blood) (1922), and Bellarion the Fortunate (1926). In all, Sabatini produced 34 novels, eight short story collections, six non-fiction books, numerous uncollected short stories, and several plays.

But, the film bears no relationship to the book, which is why I've put off reading it. This story is as much a buckle-swasher as Sabatini's other novels and just as entertaining, if you can handle the turn-of-the-century verbiage and style. For those who love adventure in exotic and far off times and places, Rafael Sabatini was a godsend. And this one is certainly up there among his successes! Here is a tale about an English gentleman of Cornwall, Sir Oliver Tressilian, who is betrayed into ignominy and bondage by a dastardly kinsman who covets Sir Oliver's wealth and, incidentally, safety for himself. Sabatini was a prolific writer; he produced a new book approximately every year

While he would never achieve the success of Scaramouche and Captain Blood, Sabatini still maintained a great deal of popularity with the reading public through the decades that followed. By the 1940s, illness forced the writer to slow his prolific method of composition. However, he did write several additional works even during that time.

One of the true classics that is timeless when you are talking novels of high adventure and swash-buckling action! Sabatini is a master of the vernacular, using his proper diction as a literary rapier to stage-manage the action and situations presented in his novels! You need this on your bookshelf!

This was a difficult book to put down, because of the intricate weaving of circumstances and misfortunes and betrayals that befell the protagonist. The author spun a most enchanting tale, that transports the reader from England across the high seas to the middle East and back again. Hoorah for an entertaining swashbuckling novel!

This is a sea story classic, and should be read. By today's standards, though, it leaves a bit to be desired. But this is true of almost all classics.... writing and readers change. For anybody who loves sea adventures, though, this is a must-read.

This is a very good and entertaining book. I am glad I came across it. If you like sea adventures then you will enjoy this book.

Possibly the best heroic adventure I've ever read. Colorful dialogue, great action, gripping swashbuckling story. CLASSIC

Good story, colorful characters and plenty of swashbuckling action and adventure. Mr. Sabatini certainly has a flair for the dramatic when it comes to tales of adventure. This was an enjoyable read that had good pace and kept you interested throughout the entire book. However, at the beginning, the "set up" was a little slow and in my opinion much of it was unnecessary. As I am used to this in adventure stories I trudged on and sure enough by chapter three we were on our way. If you like pirate adventures, love stories and the hunt on the high seas I would highly recommend The Sea Hawk.

An easy reading adventure, as are many of his books. I enjoy Sabatini's writing style and historical fiction.
Ok, ok, the coincidences necessary to the plot pile up beyond all credibility. That's true. Still, it is heck of a great story! And it is written in the most vivid English, by a master craftsman. Even better, it shows Islamic pirates — PIRATES, mind you: the terrorists of their age — as being men of honor and piety, from their own perspective. That is a timely reminder of the importance of perspective.
