    Treasure Island must be the most enthralling adventure book ever written. As we listen to the voice of Jim Hawkins telling his extraordinary tale, and later that of his companion Dr. Livesey, we are plunged into a world of pirates, buried treasure, mutiny, and deceit.

    Overall

    I never read Treasure Island as a kid but I listened to this after I gave the CDs to my 8-year-old nephew, Jack. What a great story! Fast moving, suspense, it's got a lot going for it. And the narrator is a great story teller with a flexible voice who doesn't get in the way of the story, as some do. He voiced Jim Hawkins youthful, excited, sometimes breathless; just right. And the other voices were rendered so well that one would think that the story had multiple narrators. I highly recommend this version. Jack loved it.
