Summary

With swordfights and romance, adventure and treachery set against the backdrop of the French Revolution, this is the book that made Sabatini famous. Andre-Louis Moreau has good prospects as a young lawyer, but an unfair duel with the ruthlessly cruel Count de La Tour d'Azyr leaves Andre-Louis' best friend dead and Andre-Louis himself a fugitive from the King's justice. While incognito, he becomes both a wildly popular actor and a firebrand of the Revolution. His vow to avenge his friend's murder leads him deeper into the political intrigues that surround the Revolution, and to a position of power. But there are secrets to be revealed that will stun all of Paris.
One of the best historical romances of all time, Scaramouche was a best seller upon its original publication in the U.S. in 1921.

Classic!

I really enjoyed this! Reminded me much of The Count of Monte Cristo. Romantic in the classical sense and a joy to listen to, partly down to the talented narrator. Impressed by his tone and superb handling of dialogue for both male and female characters - will look for his other performances.

Mesmerizing

I've seen a movie based on this novel maybe thirty years ago (yes, I am that old), then I ventured to listen to the novel, which forced me to stay up until 4 AM for two consecutive days, and I doubt that I'll be rewarded with equal pleasure any time in the near future. I hope others will find as much pleasure as I did in this beautiful novel.

Great writer, good reader

Scaramouche has always been one of my favorite novels. It has everything good escape fiction should have- great characters, an interesting setting, twists and turns, ups and downs and surprises. I've probably read the book three or four times but it all seemed fresh again with this reading. The reader does a very good job with most of the characters and keeps the action moving very fast. Several times I sat in my car continuing to listen (I listen to books in my car via my Ipod) even though I had arrived at my destination- always a mark of a good audiobook. I only have one complaint. Some of the older female characters were made to seem a bit too pompous and ridiculous through the reading.
