A delightful classic full of interesting comments and charismatic characters. Witty and fun.

The Argonautica

by Apollonius Rhodius

The preface is a bit long and sometimes dense, still it provides very interesting insights on the text.
The Argonautica itself is most enjoyable. The Argonauts' tale was always a favourite of mine (thanks to the 1963 movie), and I was excited to find the original text has the rhythm of the film. First class adventure, although it would have been nice Apollonius Rhodius had gone deeper into some aspects he judges non vital to his story. The portrayal of Medea as a pawn in the gods' games and the remorse that consumes her is moving.

The Sea-Hawk

by Rafael Sabatini

Wonderful book. Sabatini was a master in delivering the best adventure stories full of action, honor, betrayal, romance and exotic lands.
