Publisher's Summary

Robert Louis Stevenson's cherished, unforgettable adventure magically captures the thrill of a sea voyage and a treasure hunt through the eyes of its teenage protagonist, Jim Hawkins. Crossing the Atlantic in search of the buried cache, Jim and the ship's crew must brave the elements and a mutinous charge led by the quintessentially ruthless pirate Long John Silver. Brilliantly conceived and splendidly executed, this is a novel that has seized the imagination of generations of adults and children alike. And as David Cordingly points out in his afterward, Treasure Island is also the best and most influential of all pirate stories.

A pure joy to listen to!

This is one of the best audiobooks I've ever had the pleasure listening to. Alfred Molina's narration is nothing short of remarkable, showing a command of the era's language in a way I've never quite heard before. He doesn't stay at arm's length but rather embodies these classic characters, displaying nuance at every turn of phrase and practically chewing on the lines. It's really quite an accomplishment.

But the real treasure remains Stevenson's very elegant (and underrated) writing. It remains one heck of a good yarn that has withstood the test of time for very good reasons. Highly recommend it!
