A romantic, swashbuckling adventure story about a Cornish gentleman sold into slavery and his transformation into Sakr-el-Bahr, the Sea Hawk.

A rather old-fashioned book of manly daring-do which irks a bit these days. However, I enjoyed it precisely because of this really. You can guarantee a 'happy' ending for the main characters despite all the hardships they have to go through and the wrongs done. so from that perspective it is an easy read.

I first picked this up as a little hard-backed book from a second-hand bookshop many years ago, enticed by both the pocket-size of the book and the image on the fly-sheet. I enjoyed the escapism at the time and sought out and enjoyed other books by Sabatini. Re-reading it now, during Covid-19, it is still a good means of escape, as it is a completely different world. This is not a book that would be written today. ( )

I don't think I've seen this movie, which is one of the few Errol Flynn films I haven't tracked down yet. I'm a little disappointed that it looks like the plot is substantially different; I would have liked to see the brother storyline play out.

ETA: just to update that no, the film has nothing to do with the book, aside from a little Spanish galley slave action.

The end result of all this is that I need to find me copies of [b:Showdown|2713491|Showdown|Errol Flynn|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1391417900s/2713491.jpg|1130893] and [b:Beam Ends|1143448|Beam Ends|Errol Flynn|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1387739040s/1143448.jpg|1130891]. ( )

I found this book to be rather engaging. Lots of betrayal and misunderstanding, lots of skulduggery, lots of racist stereotypes about Muslims and Arabs, lots of sexism, and so forth, but then it was written in 1915.

If you have to choose between this and "The Scarlet Pimpernel", choose this one. Not that Pimpernel is bad, it's just this one is better. ( )

Very well-told swashbuckling tale of the sea. ( )

After a disjointed and heavy read by Victor Serge, it only made sense to immerse myself into an adventure-laden romance on the high seas. And who better to proffer that than Rafael Sabatini? Sure, other writers may be more artistic (Conrad), psychologically excoriating (Melville), or take an entire saga to rub the salt through to the bone (O’Brian), but none are as rip-roaring rousing as Sabatini. Though I enjoyed “Captain Blood” more and consider “Scaramouche” a near masterpiece, “The Sea-Hawk” kept me rocking on the waves in anticipation of the next sword strike. Incredibly well-researched—a constant in any work of his that I’ve read. But this time the research was so seamless that it wasn’t until I returned to the introduction that I’d realized just how much detailed study went into it (religion, history, geography). In “Scaramouche” that work was blazingly obvious, barely getting through two pages without translating French, learning how to pronounce Norman towns, or keeping up with the luminaries of the French Revolution.

And all the references to “poop” made my inner Kidd giggle: “poop-deck”, “poop’s forward end”, and my favorite “the gorgeous poop was fixed with a spacious cabin”. One paragraph on page 260 had three poops! My word, that’s a lot of shit. Hee hee hee aaaaarghhhee hee hee.

I’ll grow up eventually. Just not so much, I hope, that I can’t enjoy a fast-paced adventure such as those penned by the fluid and comprehensive Sabatini ( )

Sir Oliver Tressilian sat at his ease in the lofty dining-room of the handsome house of Penarrow, which he owed to the enterprise of his father of lamented and lamentable memory and to the skill and invention of an Italian engineer named Bagnolo who had come to England half a century ago as one of the assistants of the famous Torrigiani.
