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<br />

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.

Very Creative

Stevenson writes is a both accessible and vivid way. His story is believable and interesting. The reader blushes knowingly late in the tale when the narrator and hero are the same. And the narrator’s “a boy,” which doubtless makes this story appeal to teen boys; they picture themselves in Jim’s intrepid shoes. Kudos to Mr. Stevenson.

Great performance of a classic story.

The narrator was so good, he really brought the characters to life. I will look for more classics read by him.
