    With swordfights and romance, adventure and treachery set against the backdrop of the French Revolution, this is the book that made Sabatini famous. Andre-Louis Moreau has good prospects as a young lawyer, but an unfair duel with the ruthlessly cruel Count de La Tour d'Azyr leaves Andre-Louis' best friend dead and Andre-Louis himself a fugitive from the King's justice. While incognito, he becomes both a wildly popular actor and a firebrand of the Revolution.

    "Best."
    Overall

    Best audiobook I've ever listened in Audible.com.
    Lovable character, great story, and above all the great narrator!

    I now crave more of this author and narrator... the thirst!!!
    I listened to it 3 times while looking through more of these types of books. XDD

    Swallows and Amazons, the book that started it all in 1930, introduces the Walker family, the camp on Wild Cat Island, the able-bodied catboat "Swallow," and the two intrepid Amazons, plucky Nancy and Peggy Blackett.

    Overall

    I have loved this book since when I was a child, and have had the imaginary voice of a "man" instead of woman narrator.

    It is ok the narrator is a woman, but to me, the voice and how she read it killed the atmosphere of each scene, making it a mere children's fishing holiday than an adventure.
