About the Author

Emilio Salgari, Nacio en Verona, el 21 de agosto de 1862. Su padre era comerciante en telas. En su ciudad natal paso la infancia y la adolescencia y llevo a cabo sus primeros estudios. Segun el mismo confeso mas tarde, fue un pesimo estudiante . A los diecisiete anos, llevado por su pasion por el mar se traslado a Venecia y se inscribio en el Instituto Tecnico y Naval; pero en 1881 interrumpio los cursos que debieron convertirlo en Capitan de navio. De ese mismo ano data el unico viaje por mar que Salgari realizo en su vida: una corta travesia lo llevo de Venecia a Brindisi y viceversa, tocando ocasionalmente algun pequeno puerto de la Dalmacia. Finalmente obtuvo un puesto modestisimo como cronista, o algo por el estilo, en el periodico La Arena pensando, de seguro, que el ambiente periodistico favoreceria su secreta ambicion de afirmarse como escritor. Hacia tiempo que Emilio habia empezado a escribir algun cuento, alguna poesia simplemente como aficionado. Fue por esa epoca que sostuvo un duelo con un colaborador de otro diario, el cual, como por otra parte lo habia hecho la mayoria de sus paisanos, se habia burlado de la mania de verones de hacerse pasar por capitan. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
I give this book five stars in its genre. Salgari was one of the best writers of adventure in its purest form. His tens of books depict swashbuckling adventures all over the world: in Malaysia and Indonesia; in the Caribbean, in Canada and New England, in the Far West (cowboys vs. indians), etc. Of all his books, the Sandokan series is the most famous, justifiedly. Sandokan is the owner of an island, Mompracem, which serves as his base of operations against the evil european occupiers of the islands. Of course, Sandokan is not bad, he's social rebel. So what, the important thing about this book and the rest of the series is the fact that you get into a different world, rolling around the archipelago on pirate ships, attending exciting battles on the sea, rescuing beauties from the hands of bad guys, getting lost in enormous jungles, escaping from tigers, living to the top. I definitely don't understand why it is so difficult to find Salgari's works in English. Lucky I'm Mexican and it is pretty easy to find unexpensive editions of all his works. I grew up fighting my way around in every corner of the world, thanks to Verne, Salgari and others. It is wonderful to be a kid and have this kind of experiences, through reading. Absolutely recommended, as other reviewers have said, for kids of all ages.

Format: Paperback
Emilio Salgari wrote at least ninety books of adventures. It is astonishing that none of those works is currently avaliable in English, taking in account the quality of his books and how many fans they have over the world.
The Sandokan series is probably the most known of the series written by Salgari. The story of the pirate Sandokan, his loyal lieutenant Yanez and his beloved Mariana has all the magic of a love tale blending in a full action plot, plenty of surprises. The personages are lovable, complex, unforgettable. If you like this book you will probably love the rest of Salgari's works, specially the Lion of Damasco series, another action-packed wonder.
When I was a child Salgari's 'Capitan Storm' was avaliable in my country only in partial version. Twenty years after, I looked for a complete version in a travel to Italy, found and enjoyed reading it. I would always recommend Salgari, because his magic is a permanent one.

Format: Paperback
As all the reviewers, it is a real shame that the readers that not speak spanish can't get all this series. I read all Sandokan series when I was a child and I had 8 years old, and I liked it so much at the grade that I re-read all the series again. The Sandokan books that I know was written by Emilio Salgari are:
Sandokan
The pirate's woman
The malasian pirates
The stranglers
The two rivals
The malasian tigers
The king of the sea
The Mompracem's reconquer
The fake bracman
The fall of an empire
In the indian jungles
The vengeance of Yañez
It is important to mention that between The King of the Sea and the Mompracem's reconquer there are other two books that talk about the reconquer of the former Sandokan's kingdom. These tales are named Sandokan and The Vegeance of Sandokan.
That is the reason of when we read the Reconquer of Mompracem we read that Sandokan is now a king of a Bornean kingdom.
I recommend highly this series and it will be one of my favorites all time.

Cuando leí "Sandokan" tenia diez años, y me encantó. Despues de haber leido este maravilloso libro leí todos los libros que encontre en las librerias de mi ciudad, colegio, bibliotecas municipales y privadas. Aún espero encontrar algunos titulos que no he podido leer(La reconquista de Mompracem, El falso Bracmán, La caida de un imperio, El desquite de Yáñez, La reina de los Caribes, Honorata de Wan Guld, Yolanda, Morgan y otros). Me gusta mucho el estilo de Salgari y recomiendo sus libros para gente de cualquier edad. Ha sido uno de los autores que mas me ha influido en mi vida de lector. Cuando leí Sandokan me sentí como si fuera uno de los actores de el libro, me gustaron los papeles de Sandokan, Yáñez, Mariana, y Tremal-Naik. Entre libros como 20000 Leguas de Viaje Submarino, la Isla del Tesoro, Robinson Crusoe, la Vuelta al Mundo en 80 días, Viaje al centro de la Tierra, Sandokan es mi libro preferido. Para niños que no gustan de la lectura, los libros de Salgari tienen la combinacion de la magia, la accion, la fantasía, el suspenso y la aventura, que a cualquiera encantan. Realmente lo recomiendo.

With Salgari the reader gets a mix of Verne and Dumas together. It is a shame that his titles are so difficult to find in English. Maybe because the "bad" guys are the British! Common get over it! These are just adventures of the best kind.
Storms, battles and twisted plots in mysterious Malasian islands that open kids eyes to the world. All before Internet and Satellite TV. With Salgari you travel around the world with a book, find the Taymir submarine adventures, superb!
Some day I will get the books from the Sandokan series I have not read.

For those that love swashbuckling adventure this is an excellent read. Sandokan's adventures are legendary and Yanez makes a great bantering sidekick. Mr. Salgari was a fantastic story teller. To learn more about him, check out The Pirate's Library.
