    I grew up on Golden Age Radio, I love to learn about a great many things, and I enjoy a wide variety of fiction genres. Me, bored? Never!

    Story
    "Liberty and Justice at the End of a Rapier Wit"

    Truly great historical literature often reflects the era it's written in as much as the era written about, and it typically resonates well into the future for the same reasons. In our modern world where civil liberties are dying one at a time and the power of the masses is called into question, this book will most definitely resonate. This is not my first venture into the world of Scaramouche, nor will it be my last. I mark this not only as one of my all-time favorites, but also as Sabatini's best in my humble opinion. The author's prose is spot-on in defending the morals of liberty, denouncing the over-privileged, and smirking into the face of opposition with a laugh and a wit as sharp as the sword of his hero. Eloquent, dangerous, and unrelenting, Scaramouche and his author are timeless in their righteousness. If you've not read this one, I can't recommend it enough.

    I mostly read historical non-fiction and fiction and I love it when it's done well.

    "Great Fun"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Scaramouche to be better than the print version?

    Yes - I would have had trouble with the French names and I liked having them pronounced correctly and beautifully.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Toward the end I neglected my life and had my headphones on for a good four hours. I was transported. :)

    "Very near perfection!"

    Scaramouche is a hidden gem. I only bought it becauseSimon Vance is the greatest storyteller of out time and I was stunned at the quality of Sabatini's writing. I will be purchasing all of his books on audible, and I suggest you do the same.
