Publisher's Summary

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, this is a novel that has seized the imagination of generations of adults and children alike. And as David Cordingly points out in his afterward, Treasure Island is also the best and most influential of all pirate stories.

Fantastic narrator

Treasure Island is a great story, and Alfred Molina is a fantastic narrator! He gives each character a unique sound and style. Very engaging, whether you're a child, or just a child at heart.

I could listen to Alfred Molina read the phone book!

This is a great story made even better by the amazing vocal talent of Alfred Molina. His voice characterizations were amazing!

Wonderfully exciting!

I read (listened) to Treasure Island while on vacation in the FLA Keys...the perfect setting if I couldn't be on an uninhabited tropical island! Molina's voice helped me visualize the characters, the setting, and the swashbuckling! I had just finished watching the series finale of one of my favorite shows, Black Sails, which is the imagined prologue to Stevenson's Treasure Island. So wonderful to go back to one of my childhood favorite books (Billy Bones, Flint, John Silver!) with an imaginative background now under my belt. I highly suggest both this Audible selection and the Starz series as a combined treat!

Hard to hear

The story is a classic, so my complaint lies with the narrator. His speech usually starts off loud but the last 2-3 words of each sentence are very soft, almost inaudible. This made for a very frustrating listen in the car.

wonderful classic

My family enjoyed listening to this together, with boys and girls aged 10-16. It's a fabulous story with a very good narrator. The accent is perfect.

Takes you back in time...

This book is a classic that is always good to read but the narrators voice and accents only make the story come more alive! Would definitely recommend this audibook.
