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.

Wonderful!

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!!

Alfred Molina Nails It.

Very good reading by Molina, but the audio quality (pops and stutters) is terrible in the first part. Either I got used to it or it stopped by the end of the recording. I would have rated this at 5 stars but for the audio quality.
