Slightly (very slightly) different than the novel I'm using to follow along with the narration but certainly still unabridged. I love the narration, music (just a little between sections), and editing. The classic pirate story well handled on audio. I can tell Charlton Griffin loves it, too.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
A reader who can cope with the need for different voices and accents - Sean Barret would do it well but unfortunately he hasn't recorded this.This reader seems to be unable to produce different voices so that you are frequently uncertain who is speaking and He is also inconsistent even with the same character!
Who was your favorite character and why?
Jim Hawkins as he is the hero of the story.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
By his terrible attempt to reproduce Devonshire / Cornish confusing them with Scottish accents. Frequently Americanisms come through. It was pretty hopeless I have to say.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Treasure Island?
I do not like abridged versions of stories so this is not applicable.
Any additional comments?
Do not buy this version.I see there are one or two new since I downloaded this one.
