Doctor. Scholar. Soldier. Peter Blood has been all these. But when he is exiled and sold unjustly into slavery, he finds there is another title he must own - Pirate. Now a man without a country, he wreaks his revenge upon the Spanish Main as a buccaneer. The only thing that saves him from absolute dissolution is the love he still harbors for Miss Arabella Bishop. Now, he is forced to balance the dictates of his conscience with his natural genius for piracy.

    " want to know where all the swashbuckling films you've ever seen came from..... it's this. a cracking yarn "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Larry | 2/13/2014

    " Smarter with more shades of grey than I expected. Peter Blood is far from the a dimensional super fighter. Outside of actual combat situations, he sometimes fails and then pays for those failures. Do not misunderstand. This is action adventure but with more thought and better craftsmanship than normal. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marc Goldstein | 2/10/2014

    " English physician is wrongfully convicted of treason and sold into slavery. He rallies several slaves to capture a Spanish ship. They take to the seas as pirates. Peter Blood is a honorable, honest, intelligent, uncompromising character. His adventures are many, he always gets out of trouble using his wits rather than his brawn. He pines after the niece of his slave master, and eventually wins her love. He is appointed governor of Jamaica and enjoys his happy ending. One of the greatest adventure novels ever. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mitzi | 2/2/2014

    " I love this book! I love Peter Blood! He is my favorite kind of character: an honorable man, a reluctant hero, motivated by his true love (NOT lust) for a woman who at first seems unattainable..... With plenty of buccaneering adventures, clever escapes, and witty dialogue as well.... All the makings for a great story! "

    " Loosely based on historical events, this is a pirate book that will entertain everyone "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jerome | 1/27/2014

    " Truly a great book! Adventure, romance - all deftly delivered through Mr. Sabatini's skilled prose. I am definitely going to read more of his works, may find my way back to Capt Blood once again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Philip | 1/17/2014

    " It isn't intelligent, brilliant or challenging. I read it as a kind of self-indulgent nostalgia. If you want to feel like what you might have felt like when you were about 10 years old and wanted a bit of old-time swash buckling, this is a good choice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 benebean | 1/2/2014

    " Good story-- but not as good as Scaramouche which left me wanting to quote half the book to everyone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pushpa Rao | 12/16/2013

    " Immerse yourself in the trials of Peter Blood, doctor, humanitarian, pacifist and pirate. If those things sound oxymoronic, it's becuase Sabvatini has a way of reminding us that life is full of contradictions, like people. Then see Errol Flynn in the movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Haley | 12/3/2013

    " Easily one of my favorites. It is definitely an adventure book written by a man, but it is great. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 11/16/2013

    " I suppose this book defines the Swashbuckler genre. It was alternately cheesy and engaging. I feel Scaramouche (Sabatini's other great work) is much better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robyn | 10/30/2013

    " Sabatini is a delightful storyteller. You cannot help but take the side of the "unfortunate" buccaneer! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natalia | 10/20/2013

    " When I was a child I fell in love with doctor Blood, a fictional character! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Muhammad | 8/22/2013

    " All time favorite. Read it about 6-7 times. Can read a couple of times more ^_^ "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric Orchard | 7/21/2013

    " Rollicking, fast paced fun. My only complaints are that i found it too long for the type of story it is and the language distractingly flowery. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Johanna.burnett | 3/28/2013

    " I read this for a book group. Not normally something I'd pick but enjoyed it the same way I enjoy a good action movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicholas Adcock | 3/12/2013

    " Great book, full of adventure and great showdowns between characters "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alina Fabozzi | 12/23/2012

    " This is a great book if you are into historical naval battles, love stories and a place called Tortuga. I really liked Captain Blood and his crew. For an old book, it's easy to read and the action is descriptive. Mr. Blood is a cool character!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karoline | 9/24/2012

    " Teetering on the edge of giving this 4 stars ("really liked" vs. "liked"). Who doesn't love a swashbuckler? This is one of the classics. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 J.M. Hochstetler | 8/4/2012

    " If you want a rip-roaring swashbuckling pirate tale, this is it. Sabatini is my kind of writer--creating vividly drawn characters you care about! It's a literate and involving tale of adventure, injustice, revenge, and romance you'll find hard to put down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert Edelstein | 6/22/2012

    " So far my favorite of the Sabatini books I've read. The strategies Blood uses on the high seas were amazing. I never ever would have thought to put the phrase "high seas adventure" in a list of books I'd ever enjoy but Sabatini makes it work brilliantly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt Crumpton | 5/16/2012

    " The greatest pirate adventure of them all! I was pleasantly suprised with this novel. A very compelling story of Peter Bloods journey from doctor to slave to pirate and thief setting sail in the Caribbean. This book is a must read. "
