Publisher's Summary

This set includes five tales of extraordinary heroism, marvelous intrigue, and exceptional courage that have inspired and amazed people for generations. Gulliver’s Travels is Jonathan Swift’s comic tale of an Englishman who journeys to four fantastical and exotic lands filled with unforgettable characters, from the pint-size Lilliputians to the giant Brobdingnagians. The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood takes us to Sherwood Forest, where the brigand and his band of “merry men” rob from the rich to give to the poor — to the consternation of the Sheriff of Nottingham. The Jungle Book transports readers into a wondrous world where danger lurks behind every drooping vine and the law of the jungle is the key to survival. Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island follows young Jim Hawkins as he learns the ways of the buccaneer from a group of seafaring miscreants, including the nefarious peg leg, Long John Silver. White Fang by Jack London recreates the forbidding world of the Yukon Gold Rush, where a wild dog must endure violence, hardship, and bitter cold on his journey from savagery to civilization.

Great stories, difficult format

Any additional comments?

This is a great set of stories well read/performed. The only complaint we had was the format: it's a HUGE book to download and it's nearly impossible to find a given book in the collection as they aren't differentiated. So, we just listened to it straight through and enjoyed the classic stories, but will find it hard to go back and listen again.

Wonderful

Would you consider the audio edition of The Adventure Collection to be better than the print version?

Having the ability to "Read" on the go, any audio book is better than a print version in my opinion. The only exception, is the lack of note taking. But if you are listening for pleasure, Audiobooks are the eay to go.

What did you like best about this story?

I particularly enjoyed White Fang and Robin Hood the most. They were a joy to listen to. The other stories were a little less enjoyable, but not by much. As a 25 year old guy, I found these "children's stories" far more enjoyable than most stuff written today.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

All 5 narrations were magnificent. The accents were wonderful.

Any additional comments?

Only change needed, is better labeling of the books and chapters. There is no separation and if one wanted to re-listen to a particular book, you would have to guess where it was.

Bad labeling. Great stories though.

I wish the books and chapters were clearly labelled and not just lumped together as chapter 1-151.

Mostly great stories

What did you love best about The Adventure Collection?

If you have a lot of time to listen like me, this is a book to spend a credit on.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

I think Brilliance studios in general has the best recordings I have listened to so far.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed most of these books. The only parts I did not enjoy was the last half of the Jungle Book and the last half of Gulliver's Travels. There were simply too many Travels.

Long John Silver, White Fang, and Little John are now some of my favorite characters in fiction.

No separation for books

I enjoyed several of the stories including treasure island, but Kipling became painfully redundant and the story of Robin Hood is told better in an abridged form. Would have liked an indexed book design.

Very entertaining

This collection did not disappoint! All the stories were great as was the performance of each narrator. I would highly recommend this for adults and children alike. I think children should be at least eleven or very well read due to vocabulary.

Robin Hood was worth getting through the book

Jungle book and Gulliver's travels became boring and hard to finish. Treasure Island, White Fang, and Robin Hood were great!

Simon Vance narrates Robin Hood.

I love old english.

all of it except for book 2 3 & 4 of The Jungle Book exceptional. I didn't care for the writing style of the Jungle Book, guess I was spoiled by the movie. Treasure Island was awesome impeccable English accent nailed it. Robin Hood was a great story. Not the same that is reproduced or depicted in any of the movies however, it was a solid story. the narrator did an excellent job. if I did read this again I would probably stop after Treasure Island.

Thoroughly enjoyable!

Having never read any of the included books previously I can't say a bad word about either the stories or the performances.

Very worthwhile listen!

Hard to rate

It's hard to put a rating on a collection of stories like this. All I can say is the narrators were all first rate, but I was surprised at how little I engaged with the stories - except for Treasure Island - a rollicking good tale that one! But at only 1 credit you can at least now say you've read all the "classic children's adventures", and you may even enjoy one or two.

all in one

as I have just got this collection I can't comment too much on each of the 5 individual books, however have noticed that there is no way of telling where each books starts or stops, which means you have no other option other than listening to each book in the order they come in...one at a time.

Enjoyable

Enjoyed 'Robin Hood' and 'Treasure Island', the other three stories were not particularly to my taste. Though all the narrative was well executed.

Great stories, beautifully read!

These books were excellent value. My 8 yo and 6 yo were riveted - they do love a good story. Not so sure about Gullivers Travels - have left that one for when they are a bit older - but the rest were great. Reading just at the right pace with voices done very well.

not a fan for the narrators

The narrator really made these hard to listen to. Sadly, for me, he was just boring.
