    " Just a tad slower then "Captain Blood" or "The Sea Hawk", none-the-less, "Scaramouche" was wonderfully conceived and raised significant issues that are still very valid today. Great ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 3/31/2011

    " Unexpectedly entertaining read, although I suspect Google Books did not have the best edition (typos, ho!). Neat to see foundational cliches in action. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 2/3/2011

    " Great story, well told. Intelligent, interesting, and compelling. This is an adventure-romance set during the height of the French Revolution that satisfies to the last page. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Whit | 2/3/2011

    " This book is a classic example of Renaissance historical fiction. From swashbuckling swordsmanship to prudent politics, this story has it all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 1/9/2011

    " Classic love story. Boy loves girl. Girl loves boy. Complete misunderstanding. Secrets are finally revealed (which you definitely figure out prior to them being revealed). And they live happily ever after, oh yes, and it all takes place in the middle of the French Revolution. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rissi | 12/24/2010

    " Really love French history and this one is good.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 12/8/2010

    " A little slow in the start-up but takes off in the middle. An adventure set at th4 start of the French Revolution. Action, politics, history and of course, love. I agree with the description that it is a cross between the Three Musketeers and the Scarlet Pimpernel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aneel | 10/23/2010

    " Sabatini has a problem with making his heroes too good. But an entertaining adventure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kersten | 10/14/2010

    " This is the first 'big' novel I read as a child -- and I've wanted a revolution ever since! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 10/2/2010

    " The book was published in 1921 and the style is very different from books published now. I suppose it was a different time, when people weren't in so much of a rush. There is a lot of narrative in the story, which really slowed the reading down, but it was a good read all the same. "

About the Author
Author Rafael Sabatini

Rafael Sabatini (1875–1950) was the son of two opera singers. Schooled in England and Switzerland, he would learn many languages. His first job was as a translator, and he would later translate for British Intelligence during World War I. He began writing historical romances for fun, and after publishing his first story in the mid 1890s, produced a new book every year for the next twenty five years.
