A sexually charged and wickedly funny thriller starring Tony Award-winning actor Billy Crudup, Harry Clarke is the story of a shy Midwestern man leading an outrageous double life as the titular cocky Londoner. Moving to New York City and presenting himself as an Englishman, he charms his way into a wealthy family's life as the seductive and precocious Harry, whose increasingly risky and dangerous behavior threatens to undo more than his persona.

When I got to the end of Harry Clark I did not realize it was the end! I took a break and came back and was so excited to hear the rest of the story. Imagine my disappointment when I found out the story ended and nothing really mattered. I did not bother to listen to Lillian as I did not like the playwrights narration. Too bad ; it had such a good start.

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, it is a novel that has seized the imagination of generations of adults and children alike.

Treasure Island is a classic for good reason. Not only is it the quintessential pirate story, it is also a good “coming of age story.”
I recommend this book for all ages. Listening to Alfred Molina narrate the book with his rich full voice made listening to Treasure Island a real treat.
