Publisher's Summary

Pieces of eight! Pieces of eight! When young Jim Hawkins unexpectedly inherits a treasure map, he little knows what adventures await him.

Pursued by pirates, betrayed by friends and beset by skulduggery, Jim must brave high seas and low cunning before he reaches the shores of Treasure Island.

His fellow treasure hunters include the inflexible Captain Smollett, the indefatigable Doctor Livesey and the irrepressible Squire Trelawney. And then there's the ship's cook: a seafaring man with one leg who goes by the name of Long John Silver....

Robert Louis Stevenson's classic adventure is brought thrillingly to life in this brand-new full-cast audiobook adaptation.

    "Great rendition but not the unabridged novel!"

    Great performances- good screenplay but not the unabridged novel that was described! I especially enjoyed the cast discussion at the end.

    "Fantastic!"

    I listened to this with some trepidation. I first read Treasure Island 50 years ago, and have re-read it maybe 20 times since then. If they messed this up, I was going to be really upset.

    Well.... they didn't mess it up! Tom Baker and the rest of the cast are wonderful, and the adaptation is straight down the line. This is no sentimentalized John Silver, the grim old pirate with a heart of gold: behind his hearty laugh, he's a cunning and ruthless devil.

    Of particular note is the outstanding score by Howard Carter. The full orchestral suite is included in the extras Big Finish always provides. I only wish it were available separately so I could add it to my music collection.

    "Misleading"

    The perf was good, what little story was good. The last half is not book or performance its bio and score. So less than 2 hrs of content. I was looking for the book with good performance but this was just a taste.

    "Not the full running time."

    As was done with Mary Shelley's Frankenstein the length of this book includes nearly an hour and a quarter of cast interviews and such like, which is ok but has definitely put me off buying again
    However, a great cast makes this a great listen for just over 2 hours.
    How good the book is heightens the sense of disappointment experienced through the shortness.

    Very good. Shame no warning that last half hour is making of. But highly recommend never the less.
