I am a sea adventure fan and have read several Collingwood, Farnol and Sabatini stuff. But Kingston has his own style of descriptive writing. He will take you in to time giving every detail of Victorian scene and its sea life. I recommend his books for the sea lovers.
No different from his other book 'The Sea Hawk'.
This book is an outdated junk worth discarded. Hunting is pre-historic which has no place in the modern world. PETA and other animal lovers must bring a ban on this rag.
This book is an abridged version of Arabian Nights. I recommend the four volume complete version available in Manybooks. The volumes are very descriptive and full.
