Publisher's Summary

Jim Hawkins, a young cabin boy battles the pirate Long John Silver for a buried treasure. One of the most frequently dramatized novels of all time. The influence of Treasure Island on popular perceptions of pirates is enormous, including treasure maps marked with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen carrying parrots on their shoulders.

    "A classic ruined"

    If you love monotonous dreary narratives, then this is for you.
    I downloaded to enjoy on my drive from Edinburgh to London - had to switch off 20mins into the journey for fear of falling asleep at the wheel.
    Five stars for the story, but only because I’ve read it before.

    "Unfortunate"

    This reader did not do the book justice. Boring and lifeless. Not what you want at all in an Audubon book!

    "Boring"

    The story is a classic but the narration is anything but. The monotone delivery put me to sleep.

    "A classic for kids"

    Well I just don't enjoy the story or the narration very much and would say that it's most likely suited for a 12 yr old from the 50's to try enjoy. I could be wrong perhaps adults would still enjoy if they came from a simpler time.

    "You get what you pay for"

    I had to read this book for a class, and I figured I'd splurge and buy the audio book since it was so cheap. While this version gets the job done, it has to be listened to sped up because of the slowness and monotone of the narrator. He was also inconsistent in his reading speed. He does do really great pirate voices though, so that's a plus.

    "Enjoyable"

    This was an enjoyable telling of this classic. I most enjoyed the reader's ability to change his voice and inflection when representing the different characters.

    "Horrible voice "

    we could barely understand the narrator. Had to turn it off before the first chapter ended. I didn't listen to a sample first. Big mistake!
