Summary

For plain and pure imaginative delight, Treasure Island is unsurpassed. From the moment narrator Jim Hawkins meets the blind pirate Pew at the Admiral Benbow Inn until the spirited battle for hidden treasure on a tropic island, the novel spawns unforgettable scenes and characters that have thrilled readers young and old since its original publication in 1883. A story that centers around the battle between good and evil, Treasure Island is, in the words of G.K. Chesterton, "the realizaton of an ideal, that which is promised in its provocative and beckoning map; a vision not only of white skeletons but also green palm trees and sapphire seas."
(P)1997 Blackstone Audiobooks

Critic reviews

"Climb aboard for the swashbuckling adventure of a lifetime. Treasure Island has enthralled (and caused slight sea-sickness) for decades. The names Long John Silver and Jim Hawkins are destined to remain pieces of folklore for as long as children want to read Robert Louis Stevenson's most famous book. With it's dastardly plot and motley crew of rogues and villains, it seems unlikely that children will ever say no to this timeless classic." ( Amazon.com)

Brilliant story, superbly well-written, deservedly famous still.

Brilliant story, superbly well-written, deservedly famous still. Long John Silver’s voice a mite irritating, as is that of Jim Hawkins as a boy. Overall, however, the reader does an excellent job.

Exciting classic

This timeless classic does not disappoint. The narration is superb. Long John Silver is the father of all villans and this adventure is the mother of all adventure stories of treasure and treachery.

Unabridged and Worth the Read

Do not both with the other versions with more famous readers as they are often not the true story, for the unabridged edition, this is your audiobook.

The best

The ultimate adventure story, without a single dull page. The narrator is among the very best. Anyone who has not heard this production should do so in the company of friends or children.
