Listened to this with my sons in the car (ages 8 and 11). We all loved it. The performers do a great job. The "pirate talk" is well rendered and brings the story alive. A couple of major changes from the book, but that's Ok. We will try an unabridged version next. I thought this was well worth listening to. Set sail to Treasure Island!!!
"Great dramatisation of a true classic"
Fun, Adventure and Swashbuckling
I am myself an adult, but I enjoyed the escapism of the different voices used by the narrators, even if some were pronounced for effect moreso for the benefit of younger adults/kids
Whether you are an adult or child, this book is a good dramatisation of a great classic. Good fun and easy to listen to, give it a go!
