Publisher's Summary

Tim Piggot-Smith reads J. Meade Falkner's exciting tale of a boy who gets caught up in a dangerous adventure with smugglers and treasure. Orphaned John Trenchard is just 15 when his adventures begin...

Growing up by the sea in the village of Moonfleet, John is captivated by the local legend of the ghostly Blackbeard, who rises on winter nights to search for his lost treasure. However, by accidentally discovering a secret passage under the churchyard, John stumbles on the true secret of the village: smuggling. Little does he know that becoming involved in the illegal trade leads to him being accused of murder - with a reward for his capture.

He is forced to leave home and goes on the run. Will he be able to clear his name? And can he finally track down Blackbeard's treasure?

    "Audiobook is ABRIDGED, despite "unabridged" label"

    Other, genuinely unabridged, versions are available,
    not (alas) read by Tim Pigott-Smith.

    Story
    "Classic adventure story convincingly narrated"
    Would you listen to Moonfleet again? Why?

    It was quite short and an interesting distraction on a long car journey, suitable for children and adults


    What did you like best about this story?

    The historical details, good ending, imagery.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The boat scenes


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, not really, it was just absorbing and sometimes unexpected


    Any additional comments?

    More Swiss Family Robinson than Stephen King, so I would judge it's place as told to mixed generations round a fireside or when driving.
