Audible Editor Reviews

"Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!" "X marks the spot!" Long John Silver with his parrot on his arm! Treasure Island, the 1883 masterpiece by the great Scot Robert Louis Stevenson, set the course for all-things-pirate to come. Its influence is inestimable.

This story of buccaneers seeking buried treasure on an island off the coast of Mexico is told through the eyes of Jim Hawkins, a teenager who gets mixed up in the pirate crowd. Hawkins is brought to life in this audiobook by the expert Neil Hunt, whose British tenor playfully rises and falls with the churn of the waves and the mayhem wrought by Billy Bones, Ben Gunn, and other immortal characters of this swashbuckling epic.

Publisher's Summary

If you happen to find a map in a dead buccaneer's sea trunk, you can't very well ignore it, not if you are Jim Hawkins and his friends Dr. Livesey, Captain Smollett, and Squire Trelawney! But even with a map, buried treasures are not easy things to come by. At the start of his grand adventure, setting sail on the good ship Hispaniola, the young Hawkins is a hesitant, querulous boy, too easily beguiled by his own fancy.

By journey's end he will have faced murder, mutiny, and mayhem - and in the process, become a man. Narrator Neil Hunt brings to life the characters Robert Louis Stevenson made so memorable: Black Dog, Blind Pew, Billy Bones, George Merry, Israel Hands, and Ben Gunn.

    "A good narrator helped the story move nicely. "

    With audiobooks a good narrator with a voice you can listen to is a necessity. This copy has that in spades and I greatly enjoyed the book. I would definitely listen to this version again and again.

    "Struggle"

    This review has more to do with my poor reading skills than the story itself. I just had a real hard time following along at times which was a bit embarrassing. I kept having to go online to get chapter summaries to keep up.

    Story
    "Never read this as a kid. Glad I checked that box"
    Where does Treasure Island rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Needed a quick download before getting on a plane. Couldn't decide and just downloaded this. Kept me listening.


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

    quirky but good. I'm more used to books with the same reading voice, but the whole pirate thing with different voices was necessary and probably done as good as it could have been for this type of book.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't go wrong with a classic. The production and narration of this was done well enough to make it a great listen
