Audible Originals takes to the high seas to bring to life this timeless tale of pirates, lost treasure maps and mutiny. When weathered old sailor Billy Bones arrives at the inn of young Jim Hawkins' parents, it is the start of an adventure beyond anything he could have imagined. When Bones dies mysteriously, Jim stumbles across a map of a mysterious island in his sea chest, where X marks the spot of a stash of buried pirate gold.

I really enjoyed this play. The acting and the effects were very good. In my imagination I was lost on the island and could smell the sea for myself.

You don’t have to be a teenager to enjoy this story, packed full of adventures with highs and lows. Not a bit mushy, it can be very real emotionally.

I very much enjoyed this story from beginning to end with a few laughs along the way. Something sugar sweet after all those murder mysteries I usually go for. A real bargain.

When the Knight Bus crashes through the darkness and screeches to a halt in front of him, it's the start of another far from ordinary year at Hogwarts for Harry Potter. Sirius Black, escaped mass-murderer and follower of Lord Voldemort, is on the run - and they say he is coming after Harry. In his first ever Divination class, Professor Trelawney sees an omen of death in Harry's tea leaves.... But perhaps most terrifying of all are the Dementors patrolling the school grounds, with their soul-sucking kiss....
