Publisher's Summary

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.

Rather entertaining

This was a good story, not great. It felt like pirates of the Caribbean sort of. It was the kind of story where you know what's going to happen but it's still entertaining to listen to. The narration is great. I love the accents that guy does. He's pretty good at them. I'm glad I listened to this book.

Swashbuckling defined!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Yes. I love pursuits and escapes. Blood fleeing alone in desperation would have been good but he's always with friends.

What other book might you compare Captain Blood to and why?

Treasure Island. Pirates, gold, murder etc.

What about B. J. Harrison’s performance did you like?

He's good at fake accents. British , Irish , Spanish

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No.

Any additional comments?

Great value at $3.95!

WOW WOW WOW!!!!!!

Close on to the best book I've ever had the priviledge to read/hear! Fantastic characters, epic adventures, marvelous plot, no waste of space in the pages with dull chapters! Edge-of-your-set reading the whole time! I think I may have finally find an author to follow in Señore Sabatini!

Suggestion: A foreknowledge (slight or significant) of the Caribbean geography, ships ("port/lee/starboard" especially), weaponry, Spanish, Latin, and French makes the story so much the easier to enjoy....The reader would be rewarded if research is done ahead of and/or during the reading.

Regarding the naration: B.J. Harrison does a marvelous job, nearly the best narrator I've heard! He straight up NAILS the various accents and appropriates PERFECT voices for each character which remain distinct and unique throughout the story! Also, for an American (or so he sounded to be), he does a fair job with the Spanish pronunciation and an even better one with the French. I could hear him read my least favorite book and enjoy it simply because he's the reader! I've also found perhaps a narrator to follow!
