Publisher's Summary

Squire Trelawney, Dr. Livesey, and the rest of these gentlemen having asked me to write down the whole particulars about Treasure Island, from the beginning to the end, keeping nothing back but the bearings of the island, and that only because there is still treasure not yet lifted, I take up my pen in the year of grace 17 - and go back to the time when my father kept the Admiral Benbow inn and the brown old seaman with the sabre cut first took up his lodging under our roof.

I remember him as if it were yesterday, as he came plodding to the inn door, his sea-chest following behind him in a hand-barrow - a tall, strong, heavy, nut-brown man, his tarry pigtail falling over the shoulder of his soiled blue coat, his hands ragged and scarred, with black, broken nails, and the sabre cut across one cheek, a dirty, livid white. I remember him looking round the cover and whistling to himself as he did so, and then breaking out in that old sea-song that he sang so often afterwards:

"Fifteen men on the dead man's chest - Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!"

    Story
    "Enjoyable Version of a Classic Tale of Baccaneers"

    Having read and thoroughly enjoyed this story as a young boy I set out to read it to may 7-year-old grandson about a year ago . . . and it bombed, miserably. However, after listening to this version, narrated by Austin Van Fleet, I reintroduced it to my grandson and he was enchanted by the reading. Van Fleet does and excellent job on voice inflection as well as giving each character a different (sometimes rather subtlety) different voice. The story being told primarily in the first person makes one feel like they are a participant in the journey. Being 5-hours long (do to required details to set up scenes) does make for a bit of a challenge for a young listener, but I certainly enjoyed it completely with the narration by Van Fleet being a real positive in the overall experience.

    Bottom line is this is a great remake of a classic tale to will pull in young and old listeners, alike. I would highly recommend this version to all.

    I hope this review is found to be helpful to those that may be considering purchasing this audio-book.

    Story
    "Treasure Island"
    What made the experience of listening to Treasure Island the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed the story, there were a few parts that seemed to drag but the action was fast paced and exciting


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Treasure Island?

    The most memorable moment is when the ship was "stolen"


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

    No i have not, his voice did seem to be a bit of a drag at times, but i think that was mainly to do with the story since it was mainly in the description parts, like setting up the scene.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I thought it was perfect justice, when they left the island and the afterwards part.


    Any additional comments?

    Story
    "A Family Classic by Robert Louis Stevenson!!!"

    This was a great audiobook to listen to and share the adventure of young Jim Hawkins and Long John Silver. The Robert Louis Stevenson Classic is brought to life by Austin Vanfleet in an excellent performance. Mr Vanfleet does an awesome job with this great cast of characters. This is a classic for all ages that you will be glad you picked up for your collection. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
