Outstanding Book and Narrator

Some books are considered classics because the story is unique and compelling. Others are praised because of the superlative writing style of the author. A handful of books have both qualities. Treasure Island is one.

This is the quintissential pirate book. Peg legs. A talking parrot perched atop a pirate's shoulder. Swashbuckling adventure on deck and atop the jib. And of course, Long John Silver. It's all here.

This is an astonishing book made even moreso when you consider Stevenson was just 31 years old when he wrote it. Subtle humor, action, sea adventure, double-crosses. And gorgeous prose.

And this particular audio version showcases an outstanding narrator. His various character voices were so distinct that at times I supposed I was listening to a dramatic retelling using various actors.

Buy it. Download it. Relish it.
