And so, presently, Good-Humour spread her mantle over us anew, and quip and jest and laughter decked our speech, until the noise of our merry-making drifting out through the open windows must have been borne upon the breeze of that August night down the rue Saint-Dominique, across the rue de l'Enfer, to the very ears perhaps of those within. the Luxembourg, telling them that Bardelys and his friends kept another of those revels which were become a byword in Paris, and had contributed not a little to the sobriquet of "Magnificent" which men gave me.

Bardelys the magnificent. Speak of the Devil," whispered La Fosse in my ear, and, moved by the words and by the significance of his glance, I turned in my chair. It is not for nothing that they call you the Magnificent," he answered, with a fresh bow, insensible to the sting in the tail of my honeyed words. I laughed, and, setting compliments to rest with that, I led him to the table. Ganymede, a place here for Monsieur le Comte.

Rafael Sabatini, creator of some of the world’s best-loved heroes, was born in Italy in 1875 to an English mother and Italian father, both well-known opera singers. He was educated in Portugal and Switzerland, but at seventeen moved to England, where, after a brief stint in the business world, he started to write.

BARDELYS THE MAGNIFICENT is a first-person adventure told by a wealthy French nobleman of rakish, but . I have loved all of Rafael Sabatini's books for decades. I read through a handful a few years ago and then took a break and read a bunch of other stuff.

BARDELYS THE MAGNIFICENT is a first-person adventure told by a wealthy French nobleman of rakish, but honorable, character. I recently came back to Rafael when I found some of his books for free on my Kindle. This is one of those, and Viola' the love affair has been rekindled. Sabatini has a way with words. You feel like your reading a sacred text almost. Just the flair; the way he crafts his sentences. It's like one part King James old English and one part poetry; I have loved all of Rafael Sabatini's books for decades.

The movie was great (a silent John Gilbert swash-buckler), and the book is so-so. Sabatini demanded that the movie be destroyed after the license ran out, and as a result, a great classic was almost lost. It was only rediscovered a few years ago, and thank goodness it was. I knocked off one star for Sabatini's attempted destruction of cinematic history.
Rare
Set in the reign of Louis XIII, Sabatini's "Bardelys the Magnificent; etc." is wholly different from Dumas's "Musketeers" series which preceded it. A favorite in the Court, Bardelys is entrapped by a regrettable wager which he spends the remainder of the book overcoming. Multilinguist Sabatini makes the most of language and is always an enjoyable read.

The Kindle edition has some flaws, but is perfectly readable for the price. Put this in your Kindle's attic to have something to read when you want brave heroes, principled heroines, and deeply vile villains, since all get what they deserve. Somebody should do this as a movie again, there is too much scenery chewed.

I'm rereading Sabatini this year and find it more complex than expected, for Sabatini was a superb social historian and is able to put one inside the life expereince of another time and social class. This can be an uncomfortable stretch.

This is another book that I could not put down, staying up late at night to finish it. Also, I assigned it a priority over doing things around the house on a sunny afternoon. Rafael Sabatini is a great storyteller.

great

Noone writes better and with more flair that Rafael Sabatini. His stories and characters are full of color. This was just another timeless classic by a master wordsmith.

If you like this genre, this will keep you greatly entertained.

A rather convoluted plot leading to a predictable conclusion. Excellent language and turn of phrase though. A good read for those who appreciate the intrigue and romance of the French Revolution era.
Very very good plot and story
