  • Kanal
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!

  • fire dancer
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.
  • Kizshura
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.
  • Fenius
Possibly the best heroic adventure I've ever read. Colorful dialogue, great action, gripping swashbuckling story. CLASSIC
  • invincible
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.
  • Mardin
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.
