Summary

Three Adventure Tales, 43+ Hours of Audio Enjoyment  

Story 1: Treasure Island - Robert Louis Stevenson – Over seven hours  

What starts with young Jim Hawkins meeting a beggar and ends in a climactic battle between him and one of the most infamous villains in literature — Long John Silver — has long been revered as the ultimate pirate adventure story. This non - dramatized classic will sweep you off to a world of sly and savvy seafarers as the young Hawkins navigates treachery, assassination and the ominous prophecy of the black spot in the greatest treasure hunt known to literature.    

“Fifteen men on a dead man’s chest— Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!”  

Story 2: Gulliver's Travels - Jonathan Swift – Over 11 hours  

Storms shipwreck and strand an unfortunate surgeon on a series of four fantastical lands; among them he finds an island where six-inch-high natives maliciously plot Gulliver's death and where majestic horses rule over enslaved men. An enchanting fantasy for all, Gulliver’s Travels not only entertains, but enlightens: the careful reader will recognize this classic as a witty parody of political life in 18th-century England.   

Story 3: The Life and Adventures of Robinson Crusoe - Daniel Defoe – 24 hours   

An adventurous Englishman goes to sea to seek his fortune. In a cruel twist of fate, he finds himself shipwrecked on a deserted island. Aided by patience and imagination, Robinson Crusoe gradually transforms the island into a tropical paradise where he lives for 28 years. This unabridged version combines the original Crusoe story from The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe with Defoe’s lesser-known sequel The Further Adventures of Robinson Crusoe. Centuries later, Daniel Defoe’s masterpiece continues to inspire other modern versions such as Robinson Crusoe 2244.

These are some of the most timeless classic books I grew up reading, Treasure Island being one of my favorites of all time. I was very happy to see that a compilation like this existed. This is a great bang for your buck because you get the benefit of multiple books in one. The narration was spot on and very captivating. What a great way to relive the classics in an audiobook form! I would highly recommend this.
