Summary

Peg-legged pirates, colorful parrots, and plundered riches - they're all here in Robert Louis Stevenson's original seafaring adventure.

When young Jim Hawkins decides to follow a map to buried treasure, he must befriend or outsmart memorable characters such as pirate Long John Silver, captain Billy Bones, and island man Ben Gunn. Mutinous plans, mysterious deaths, and a tangle of double crosses keep Jim guessing all the way to the prize.

Inspired by real-life seafarers, Stevenson captures the adventurous spirit of the times and the imagination of readers, young and old alike.

Revised edition: Previously published as Treasure Island, this edition of Treasure Island (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

A Classic brought to life

Michael Page gives a stunning performance and the characters of Treasure Island spring to life. Even though I read it many years ago and knew what would happen the story kept me enthralled and wanting to hear more.

enjoyable read

Many people were required to read this book in middle or high school. I say that they were much more lucky than I with the books I was required to read. I found the book enjoyable, looking forward to picking it up when I was forced to set it down due you other demands on my time. I think Michael Page performed admirably, it was easy to follow the characters by his voice and accents alone. Stevenson wrote a fantastic, believable tale or mystery and intreague that books of the same ilk today require more imagination to enjoy.

Story telling at best.

I was pulled right in. Love how the author betrayed the authenticity of the past. believable characters, realistic backgrounds, so I can actually smell the salt in the air the sea. What a great adventure for all.

Couldn’t understand the reader

My family and I couldn’t understand the reader. Wish we could return it. Cannot rate the story since we have no idea what was being said.

Loved it!

Wonderful Narration, and Robert Louis Stephenson writes in a style that I really like. After listening to this classic I immediately bought all the other Audible titles available from him.
Then I watched a Disney version of the movie, which couldn’t hold a candle to the book.

For Twelve Year Old Boys of all Ages

I had never read this classic and even though I'm a Grandma and though many descriptions said it was originally written with twelve year old boys on mind, I decided to listen anyway. I was not disappointed! If you don't listen because it's a classic, then listen for the heart stopping, never ending excitement. A few times I even gasped out loud (poor Jim in the apple barrel)! Or listen for the talented performance of the voice actor. His portrayal of the pirates especially-brilliant! Whatever your reason, you'll love it.
