Captain Blood

by Rafael Sabatini

I debated giving this 5 stars but decided to limit it to 4. The book is immensely readable and definitely a page turner. That being said, the book stretches plausibility just a few times too many for my tastes. Still, if you are looking for a good swashbuckling tale, I think this deserves to be a classic of the genre; definitely faster pacing and tighter plotting than Dumas.
