What the Critics Say

"Roger Cosham demonstrates his narrative versatility with deft changes of tone and inflection, and pacing that keeps the lengthy book from becoming tedious. Fans of naval stories should love Johnson's book, which honors Stevenson's classic." (AudioFile)

    "Pirate Tale"

    Supposed to be related to Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure island. Perhaps. I think it is better, than Treasure Island.
    More of a fictional account of young John Paul Jones, before he became famous, than anything else.
    Left me wanting to hear the rest of the story.

    "Truly Delightful"

    I have loved " Treasure Island " since I was a boy a just had to listen to this . While I would have like to had more of Old Long John Silver more prominent in the story it is still a delightful story to set your sail by for a high seas adventure.

    "Tried to like it."

    I had just finished listening to Treasure Island and liked it well enough to give this book a try. I tried to like it, but just couldn't get there. I finished it, but only barely. The narrator is not the best, certainly not compared to David Buck on Treasure Island. None of the characters were compelling or likable to me. I don't know this to be true, but I got the distinct impression that this was the author's first book. It may have been written with children in mind, like Treasure Island, but even so, it was not compelling. Maybe the comparison to a classic like Treasure Island is not perfectly fair, but it is inevitable if you set yourself up as a sequel. I've listened to lots of books from this site and only not finished one of them, but this was close to being the second. Again, I didn't hate it, just didn't like it enough to be happy about using my time and credits on it.

    "Interesting story. Great narration."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dead Man's Chest to be better than the print version?

    I loved the narrator and the way he brought each character to life. I especially loved the Scottish brogue.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the character of John Paul Jones.
