Publisher's Summary

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. We meet Billy Bones, Blind Pew, Black Dog, and, of course, the charming buccaneer Long John Silver. The action and adventure never falter, and the spell of this enduring story is sustained until the very last word.

    "Great Narration and you may lay to that!"

    It's a classic for a reason. But what really made this great for me was the narration. The pace and pitch perfect for every scene. Character voices so distinct and varied you could put a face to them easily. I had no idea a "pirate" book could be so good and fun to listen to. I listened to it two times in a row and know I will still listen again in the future. The story was great and I get a kick out the "pirate" idioms. No wonder there's an offical Speak Like A Pirate Day (September 19).

    "Terrific narrator for a terrific story!"

    I bought this audio book on a whim brought on by nostalgia, and boy was I glad I did! I haven't read Treasure Island since I was a boy and couldn't really remember how the story went or who the characters were aside from the boy and pirate cook. First off, Jasper Britton did an amazing job with narration - he has a good range of voices and does "pirate talk" perfectly. The story was better than I remember and I had totally forgotten about Gunn and the captain of the ship! Highly recommended for both a great story and fantastic narrator!

    Having never read Treasure Island, I didn't get references to it before. This was a good way to ingest a classic. Well narrated.

    Story
    "Boy's Dream"
    What did you love best about Treasure Island?

    This story is what every little boy dreams of, discovering buried treasure, pirates and adventure.


    What does Jasper Britton bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    He did an excellent job conveying the attitudes and voices of the different characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    As a boy, he begins his adventure with bravery for family and a curiosity of the danger of the guest in his family's inn... hooked from there on.

    "The Ultimate Pirate Adventure"

    I gravitate toward stories told by a young protagonist for some reason, so I took to this one as narrated (almost entirely) by young Jim. While most of the pirates were stereotypical (although, I'm pretty sure this book spawned the stereotype!) buccaneers, I really loved the complex, clever, strong and masterful Long John Silver. What a great character! Definitely wish I'd read this one as a kid. I think he and his parrot would have scared me to death.

    The narrator was pretty good, although Captain Flint (the parrot) and one or two of the pirate voices were slightly annoying at times. Still very well done overall.

    "Classic Indeed"

    I read this while in high school many years ago and then saw it in the movies. It was fun then but now it is exhilerating because after years of learning the English language and its usage, I find it so much more meaningful and a great book most assured. The narration most definitely added to the experience.

    "Pure pleasure"

    A book revisited from my youth, and it did not disappoint--surely one of the great adventure stories of all time. Britton is a truly superlative narrator, a master of voices and dialects; I'll download other books based on his narration alone.
