Publisher's Summary

Peg-legged pirates, colorful parrots, and plundered riches - they're all here in Robert Louis Stevenson's original seafaring adventure.

When young Jim Hawkins decides to follow a map to buried treasure, he must befriend or outsmart memorable characters such as pirate Long John Silver, captain Billy Bones, and island man Ben Gunn. Mutinous plans, mysterious deaths, and a tangle of double crosses keep Jim guessing all the way to the prize.

Inspired by real-life seafarers, Stevenson captures the adventurous spirit of the times and the imagination of readers, young and old alike.

A Classic brought to life

Michael Page gives a stunning performance and the characters of Treasure Island spring to life. Even though I read it many years ago and knew what would happen the story kept me enthralled and wanting to hear more.

enjoyable read

Many people were required to read this book in middle or high school. I say that they were much more lucky than I with the books I was required to read. I found the book enjoyable, looking forward to picking it up when I was forced to set it down due you other demands on my time. I think Michael Page performed admirably, it was easy to follow the characters by his voice and accents alone. Stevenson wrote a fantastic, believable tale or mystery and intreague that books of the same ilk today require more imagination to enjoy.

Story telling at best.

I was pulled right in. Love how the author betrayed the authenticity of the past. believable characters, realistic backgrounds, so I can actually smell the salt in the air the sea. What a great adventure for all.

Original in all its glory!

The original text makes all the difference. Are there better productions of this story out there? Sure... but Michael Page is still excellent, and the versions I've heard with better productions don't use the original text. To date, I haven't heard an abridged/modified version of Treasure Island that comes close to what Robert Louis Stevenson put to paper. And ultimately, it's the writing that makes this story great and worth the listen. Not the music score...
