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.
I've chosen to listen again because it's one of my favorite books that has continued to make me laugh and dream over and over again.
It's hard not to like Long John Silver just because you constantly have to ask yourself whose side he is on.
The Happy Humanist symbol updated
Not with a heavy pirate accent, but believable as all the characters -- the boy protagonist, Jim Hawkins, the Squire, the Doctor, ship's Captain, the buccaneers, etc. Mr, Molina enlivens each one. This has always been a rattling good yarn, and this version does full justice to the story. What a great plot! not so easy to create as one might think.
Narration moves along briskly, matching the classic, oft-copied tale. Makes one wish to go to sea!!
Yes, I would recommend this book to a friend. This is a wonderful adventure story for any age, boy or girl.
I cannot pick out just one memorable moment because this book is full of memorable moments that keep your attention and never bore you.
Alfred Molina's performance was perfect for this book.
This is an adventure book that makes you feel fear, happiness and suspicion. This book is about loyalty and bravery.
Reading this book is not a waste of time, it is an adventure. Yo Ho
I love to travel and train dogs. I can't seem to find the time to sit down and read so I listen while I'm on my way to...well...anywhere!
Such an adventure for a young boy.
Long John Silver
He read the story well and it was pleasantly entertaining.
A young boys adventure.
Alfred Molina reads this classic adventure as well as can possibly be done. You'll find yourself listening with every spare moment you have.
Classic story. So well performed you wont believe it. Pirates, Captains, and a host of other voices done perfectly. I have over 200 titles in my library. This one is hands down, the best performance.
The performance was spot on and the story pulls you in to the adventure.
The performance of the reader.
Any scene with Captain Silvers.
The story brings out the personalities of the characters in such a way that you actually like or dislike them.
A classic that I fell in love with as a child. It was just as much fun 40 years later!
When Jim told the Dr. he had the boat
Excellent clarity and just the right emotion
