Lush music introduces this gripping tale and returns as the appropriate accompaniment when the action ebbs and flows. John Sessions's performance is splendid; his rich Scottish accent characterizes young David Balfour, and he portrays slimy Uncle Ebenezer with just the right tone. However, Sessions's best creation is the ship's captain, who sounds just like every sea captain should - gruff and strong willed. The subtle humor of porridge for every meal is revealed by Sessions's pronunciation of the lackluster dish. Sound effects add the perfect touch; listeners will feel that they're at sea when they hear summer storms and sea gulls. This is armchair adventure at its best.
