No. Alfred Molina, while he has a lovely voice, tends to drop the volume of his voice at the end of each sentence - making it difficult, if not impossible, to hear. I found myself continuously turning the volume up, then back down again - until I just gave up and stopped listening.
Try this book by another narrator.
A great fan of stories and audiobooks. Good ones.
Within a few moments you realize this is something special. The same classic enjoyed years ago, but brought to life in full measure in the hands of the amazing Alfred Molina. A bedtime story told by a master narrator, an actor. Of all the audio books you might listen to in a year, this will either be the best, or among the best. What a treat. Every moment. Thank you Mr. Molina.
A great adventure. A range of characters from innocent to bullying to shrewd to gullible to an evil genius all brought to life by one of the best narrators I've had the pleasure to listen to through audible.com. And let's not forget the adventure itself -- a search for buried treasure. This was as magical as the Harry Potter books. Download it! It will become an instant favorite.
I love Alfred Molina's reading, but what's with the popping/crackling sound? very distracting.
About 9 min into the recording, it sounds like his mike is not plugged in fully, there is terrible noise and distortion, extremely distracting. I kept listening, but it continues intermittently. This is supposed to be professional recording?!? Totally unacceptable.
I could never get into the story. Maybe I should try the paperback version.
He would often get too quiet. then suddenly extremely loud. the constant volume changes had me focusing more on his voice than the story.
Learning what is in the Doctor's snuff box, all of us were laughing with delight.
Wonderful reading, fleshed out the characters beautifully!
loved it, but once is probably enough
A classic pirate tale, really fun.
His reading of THE ILIAD is awesome. This matches it. Fantastic voice characterizations though sometimes the accents are a little thick. I wish he read more books. He's one of the best for "acting" the book, not just reading it.
of course it's not sophisticated, so don't expect Jane Austin. It's perfect, of its type.
Exciting, historic, heroic!
My children and I immensely enjoyed this audio book. We listened together during a weekend road trip and were spellbound. I never read the story when I was young, so it was a great addition to my library. Treasure Island was a good introduction to classic literature for my kids, as well as a bit of a history lesson.
We could not listen in one sitting but certainly wanted to. This book will get another listen on a future road trip.
yes - beautiful language well spoken by Molina
Classic Story comes alive with Alfred Molina's reading. I ask Moina to read more of the classics.
