Audible Editor Reviews

Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island is a timeless adventure story that takes place across the sea and on an enchanted island. This audiobook rendition is a delightful way to experience the book, whether it be for a first or recurring encounter. John Chatty's voice is full of lyric movement, and his performance adds much to the poetry of Stevenson's language - and much to the personalities of pirates. This is the kind of tale that needs to be heard out loud. Chatty allows the listener to imagine she is at the very seaside bar where the book's narrator, Jim Hawkins, first heard the tales told here.

What the Critics Say

"Narrator Chatty is not only eloquent, but talented as well. Very believably he assumes all the voices, which run from the gutteral noises of pirate Morgan to the upper-class tones of Doctor Livesey." (Booklist)
