Publisher's Summary

"Treasure Island" is an adventure novel by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, narrating a tale of "buccaneers and buried gold". Its influence is enormous on popular perceptions of pirates, including such elements as treasure maps marked with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen bearing parrots on their shoulders.

"Treasure Island" is traditionally considered a coming-of-age story and is noted for its atmosphere, characters, and action. It is one of the most frequently dramatized of all novels. It was originally serialized in the children's magazine Young Folks between 1881 through 1882 under the title "Treasure Island, or the mutiny of the Hispaniola", credited to the pseudonym "Captain George North".

come on.

Low grade audio is completely unacceptable. Even for sixty six cents. I can get better quality from Librivox especially since this is in the public domain.

A Very Good Listen

Treasure Island is one of those classics that should be on everybody’s list of books to try just once. It’s one of the original pirate tales full of treasure and gun battles. The narrator was very good at reading the story and his voice for the legendary Long John Silver was spot on. He made the character very real. I loved listening to this one.

Great Pirate Narration!

Great story, of course, and suitable for kids.
This narrator does a great pirate voice, which of course is key for Long John Silver, arrrgh!
