Escribio principalmente novelas de aventuras, ambientadas en los lugares mas variados, como Malasia, el Mar Caribe, la selva india, el desierto y la selva africana, el oeste de Estados Unidos, las selvas de Australia e incluso los mares articos. Creo personajes que alimentaron la imaginacion de millones de lectores. Tal vez el mas conocido de sus personajes sea el pirata Sandokan.

Reviews - What do customers think about Corsario negro, El (Spanish Edition)?

The worst pirates book  Aug 26, 2003
I can't put less than two stars to a book because I know what is to write a book, and just writing it it deserves two stars, but this is the worst book of pirates I ever read, beginning with this:
The book has 400 pages, and if you take all the pages that doesn't have to do anything with the main story you will have a book of 150 pages or less, the main story is boring and contradictory, and the end is the worst end I ever read, sincerely skip this one.
Great Story, Lousy Edition  Feb 26, 2002
An awful unjustice has been done to the original edition of Emilio Salgari's "El Corsario Negro"; besides being incomplete it is nearly impossible to read it without the use of a magnifier. It is supposed to be a book targeted to children but the edition is so unatractive and the typeset so small I forecast no children will fall in love with reading or with Salgari's prose if presented with this unfortunate edition.
This book is not worth it  Jan 30, 2001
I purchased this book with a lot of expectation because I had read it once as a child. This edition of the book is not simply worth your time.

First of all, the tale has been badly abridged. In fact, the editors cut the story in the middle leaving out about half of the tale. The black corsair does not have a happy ending, but neither does some of the books from A. Dumas. Anyway you should not cut a story like this.

Second, the book is typeset in a small, serif (times roman-like) print that makes it difficult to read. In fact, some of the characters are not fully formed. The result looks cheap and will detract from your reading enjoyment.

If you want to read the story, look for another edition. I am doing the same.

One of my favourite books as a kid  Oct 21, 2000
This was one of the first books I've ever read. Probably the second or third, because it came in a huge collection my dad gave me for my 12th. birthday(I'm 28 today!).

Above the beloved Verne's and Duma's of my collection, was this book I took years to find again. I've read it in Portuguese and it was called "The Black Corsair".

This book was so nice, with the brave and highly motivated main character; the Black Corsair; who would work as a Pirate in the Caribbean but still keep high moral standards and fight "the good battle".

Facing his enemies in battles at sea or land, surviving fencing duels, risking his life to save those he loved... This book had it all! :) I mean, all those things that once made kids dream and wish they would be someone as brave or as powerful when they grew up. Like, who would ever imagine kids would want to become a Pokemon one day? :)

It's been many years since I last read this book, but I still remember the exciting opening scene where the Black Corsair faces a fencing duel to death in a bar in the Caribbean. The scene was so richly described that it took me days to imagine the whole scenario. :) And the fact that his brothers were The Green Corsair and the Red Corsair sounded soooo cool at the time!

It's hard to write a review for a book rated for kids. All I can say is that I read this book at an early age and I loved it. It was one of my favourite ones. And even today, after having read so many different books, I still have this book as one of my favourites.

I would certainly buy it to my kids, if I had them, because I believe it boosts the imagination and it fills those young minds with important dillemas and some good values. And it was terribly fun to read too!

The dramatic hero  Feb 20, 2000
Salgari was the first of "pure adventure" Italian authors, and I am sure to have found some Salgari in the novels by E.R.Burroughs. This book is about an Italian noble forced to leave Italy and to find revenge becoming a corsair in Caribbean sea in the "pirate age". The plot is the typical adventure plot of the late 19th century novels with the hero, the arch-villain, the impossible love story, the revenge, the drama, the cloak and sword plot: if you love the sea and the pirates' adventures, like "The treasure island", don't miss this book and enjoy it.
