In the eastern reaches of the Thames lies the Hispaniola, an inn kept by Jim Hawkins and his son. Late one night, a mysterious girl named Natty arrives on the river with a request for Jim from her father - Long John Silver. Aged and weak, but still possessing a strange power, the pirate proposes Jim and Natty sail to Treasure Island in search of Captain Flint's hidden bounty. But the thrill of the ocean odyssey gives way to terror as the Nightingale reaches its destination, for it seems Treasure Island is not as uninhabited as it once was....
Silver is a worthy sequel to Treasure Island and a work of extraordinary authenticity and imaginative power from one of England's greatest writers.
"...rich and thrilling narrative which so ingeniously complements [Treasure Island]." (The Independent)
"Motion writes beautifully...a darker world than Stevenson's with real evil and genuine loss in it - and a tentative but credible burgeoning love story. Considered as a sequel, Silver more than holds its own as an adventure story." (Irish Independent)
"...a splendid adventure story in its own right." (The Guardian)

Tennant exalts while Motion's story collapses.
David Tennant is an excellent narrator. Motion raised me up and shot me down with a morbid ending.
I couldn't recommend a story, with an ending thats like a fatal bus crash, after a winning trip to Atlantic City.
Spirited and emotionally entertaining storyteller. Can always recommend Mr Tennant.
It obviously was written with the author expecting to write a follow up. He could easily have wrapped things up neatly in another 3 chapters. The ending of this has soured me to his intents.
If not for the narration of David Tennant, this would have been the only audio book, I have gotten, that I would have returned.
