Robert Louis Stevenson's cherished, unforgettable adventure magically captures the thrill of a sea voyage and a treasure hunt through the eyes of its teenage protagonist, Jim Hawkins. Crossing the Atlantic in search of the buried cache, Jim and the ship's crew must brave the elements and a mutinous charge led by the quintessentially ruthless pirate Long John Silver. Brilliantly conceived and splendidly executed, it is a novel that has seized the imagination of generations of adults and children alike.

What three words best describe Alfred Molina’s performance?

Hugely alternating volumes

Any additional comments?

Listening to this as a family while driving was frustrating due to the frequent incredibly quiet sections uncomfortably shattered by suddenly loud performance. It needed to be constantly adjusted manually for volume which reduced it's enjoyability, especially while driving.

America is at a tipping point, and never has this been more apparent than right now. We are in danger of losing our spiritual and moral heritage, making many believe that we have fallen beyond the point of recovery. This book is here to say that yes, we have fallen. In fact fallen much further than we realize, but our country's best days are ahead - with the help of a radical, moral, and cultural revolution, beginning with the church. This book is a manual for the revolution.

This book is absolutely amazing. I finished it in less than 3 days and loved every single chapter. I am rushing out to the bookstore now to buy my paper copy. I'm then going to re-read it, underlining, and quoting extensively from it. I can't wait to add it to my bookshelf!

This explosive new audiobook challenges many of the long-held assumptions about blacks, about Jews, about Germans and Nazis, about slavery, and about education. Plainly written, powerfully reasoned, and backed with a startling array of documented facts, Black Rednecks and White Liberals takes on the trendy intellectuals of our times as well as historic interpreters of American life.
