I found the narrator so wonderful in this telling of Treasure Island that even though I knew the story, I found myself smiling at his ability to create such marvelous voices!! You'll love this one, I promise!!

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!

What three words best describe Alfred Molina’s performance?
Hugely alternating volumes
Any additional comments?
Listening to this as a family while driving was frustrating due to the frequent incredibly quiet sections uncomfortably shattered by suddenly loud performance. It needed to be constantly adjusted manually for volume which reduced it's enjoyability, especially while driving.
