Fantastic story, unprofessional recording

I am enjoying the story despite the distracting throat clearing and congestion problems that were recorded and not edited out. I wish I had purchased the reading by Alfred Molina instead.

So much fun to listen to!

This was a treat, I love Gabriel Woolf, who knew he could move from the evil father Karamozov to Long John Silver, to an innocent youthful protagonist and be so perfectly able to bring them all to life! The story is wonderful and just as exciting as it was when I read it 40 years ago. Makes you want to revisit all of the classics.

Fifteen men on a dead man's chest?

'Treasure Island' - what magical images those two small words conjure up! One of the most adapted books in the English language, here are Robert Louis Stevenson's words presented verbatim in a well-paced action narrative that grips from the first few minutes onwards. Two hundred and more years have not aged the book at all, despite the spawning of hundreds of imitators. I have not had the pleasure of the company of this book for more than thirty years, but time has not diminished the story and rose-tinted spectacles have not washed out the bright-drawn characterisation.

Buried within the main plot is a story of morality and trust. This type of sub-plot is unusual as the book is aimed squarely at the gung-ho! action adventure; it is all the more remarkable considering when the book was written. At the end of the story I was left hanging between mild distaste and outright dislike of the Long John Silver character.

The only thing that slightly spoiled the rendition of this book for me was the reader's accent. Considering that most of the characters came from the West Country and outright reference was made to Bristol, the accent adopted by the reader seemed to float somewhere between East Devon and the Northumbrian coast. As a twenty-year resident of rural Dorset, it sounded very odd indeed.

Excellent listen.

A great, classic book full of adventure, heroics, skulduggery and pieces of eight. A real pleasure to listen to for it's innocence and escapism. Well read and highly recommended.
