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

People have always been interested in mysterious treasures, secretly hidden innumerable riches and in it's searching, which always accompanied by a lot of adventures. The novel "Treasure Island" is a real treasure itself: the sea, the pirates, an uninhabited island, danger, romance, exciting adventures and, of course, wonderful heroes. So, the paths lead to the island of treasures, where Captain Flint reliably hid treasures.

Famous works of the author Robert Louis Stevenson: "Treasure Island", "A Child's Garden of Verses", "Kidnapped", "Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" and many more.

Loved the narration

The story is well known, but I wanted to give the audible version a try and loved it! Narrator did an excellent job with the pacing and differing voices for the main characters. Highly recommended.

Unedited mistakes

It seems as if the last half of the program was never edited, with verbal slips, mid-pronounced words, and incorrect voices. Performance overall was ok, just poor editing.
