Publisher's Summary

Robert Louis Stevenson's cherished, unforgettable adventure magically captures the thrill of a sea voyage and a treasure hunt through the eyes of its teenage protagonist, Jim Hawkins. Crossing the Atlantic in search of the buried cache, Jim and the ship's crew must brave the elements and a mutinous charge led by the quintessentially ruthless pirate Long John Silver.

Brilliantly conceived and splendidly executed, this is a novel that has seized the imagination of generations of adults and children alike. And as David Cordingly points out in his afterward, Treasure Island is also the best and most influential of all pirate stories.

    Story
    "We were spellbound!"
    If you could sum up Treasure Island in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting, historic, heroic!


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    We could not listen in one sitting but certainly wanted to. This book will get another listen on a future road trip.

    Story
    "Fun Classic"
    Where does Treasure Island rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It's hard not to like Long John Silver just because you constantly have to ask yourself whose side he is on.

    Story
    "Couldn't be better!"

    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!!
