Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson

This book was never reviewed by AudioFile Magazine – but here’s what Books-on-Tape had to say:
Since its publication in 1883, TREASURE ISLAND has remained one of the great tales of mutiny. Its primary malefactor, Long John Silver, has become synonymous with evil. The story is told through the eyes of Jim Hawkins, a young man who first encounters tales of buried treasure while working at his father’s tavern. The action moves from the Admiral Benbow Inn to the high seas and on to secret islands. Never did virtue so reward a young man as Hawkins has been rewarded, made immortal by the gifts of an immortal storyteller.

About Simon

Simon is an actor who found his way into audiobook narrating as a side-gig and seems to have made a success of it. With some training as an actor as a child (just a couple of hours a week, but it stuck) and 15 years working inside the BBC (ending up as one of the presenters/newsreaders on BBC Radio 4 in London) he found the ideal combination for an audiobook narrator. Found his way to California two decades ago and never left.
