Treasure Island must be the most enthralling adventure book ever written. As we listen to the voice of Jim Hawkins telling his extraordinary tale, and later that of his companion Dr. Livesey, we are plunged into a world of pirates, buried treasure, mutiny, and deceit.

A brilliant narration of a classic boys-own adventure story. Jasper Britton makes the somewhat aged language sing and keeps the excitement going to the very last "pieces of eight". Vivid characterisation, rock-solid accents and great pace.
