Publisher's Summary

Treasure Island must be the most enthralling adventure book ever written. As we listen to the voice of Jim Hawkins telling his extraordinary tale, and later that of his companion Dr. Livesey, we are plunged into a world of pirates, buried treasure, mutiny, and deceit. We meet Billy Bones, Blind Pew, Black Dog, and, of course, the charming buccaneer Long John Silver. The action and adventure never falter, and the spell of this enduring story is sustained until the very last word.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.


What the Critics Say

Great book, Great narrator

A brilliant narration of a classic boys-own adventure story. Jasper Britton makes the somewhat aged language sing and keeps the excitement going to the very last "pieces of eight". Vivid characterisation, rock-solid accents and great pace.
