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.

I've known Captain Blood in the unbearably cute Errol Flynn version for years, but this audiobook is the version for grown-ups. Great, well-rounded characters, just enough historical content, and a satisfyingly complicated plot, all brought gracefully to life by a spirited narration. I've listened twice so far, and I'm not done yet.
Great adventure story
From Emanuel Nazareth of Mississauga, Ontario on 11/15/2013.
Loved the narration, story, and characterization. I'm sure I'll be listening to this again soon.
Worth the price!

As I enjoy almost every Classic Tales reading, this is not a review of the audio production, although the text is a perfect venue for Mr. Harrison's voice and dramatic skills. I suspect many listeners will know this story from the 1935 Errol Flynn movie (itself a classic), but only a gloss upon the much more textured and detailed tale that unfolds in the historical novel.Bravo!
