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.

    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!

    Alfred Molina reads this classic adventure as well as can possibly be done. You'll find yourself listening with every spare moment you have.

    "My favorite narration"
    Would you listen to Treasure Island again? Why?

    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.

    "Good classic. Lots of fun!"

    I enjoyed this audio book quite a bit. The narrator was great with his Pirate accents. It was lots of fun and I will share this with my kids when they are a bit older.

    "Excellent"
    If you could sum up Treasure Island in three words, what would they be?

    Narration was excellent


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Long John Silver.. had the best lines


    Have you listened to any of Alfred Molina’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Never. But this performance brought to life the well known story in a way that I understood everything :) and did not have to reread parts to translate the old phraseology into a meaning I knew.


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

    The opening at the Inn.

    "Excellent Classic"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    My 8 year old daughter and I listened to this classic. It was perfect for both of us. Long John Silver is the perfect two-faced antagonist. Jim Hawkens was an innocent protagonist boy who learned what extents both good and evil will go to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Treasure Island?

    When Jim overhears Long John's conversation from the depths of the apple barrel.


    What does Alfred Molina bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Enjoyed the pirate talk.
