What a treat! A classic tale brought to life.

Review by: The Audiobook ReviewIt's safe to say I enjoyed every second of this dramatization of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic "Treasure Island". A star-studded cast including Catherine Tate and Owen Teale, this dramatic retelling kept me engrossed the whole time.

As a dramatization with a full cast narration along with sound effects to complete the immersion, it was played dark and gritty and not for swashbuckling effects as it so could so easily have been.

For the most part, it tracked along with what I could recall from when I last read the book (I'll admit it's been a while but all the notes I could remember were hit along the way), with some changes that didn't at all detract. If anything, the interactions of the characters, in particular Long John Silver's conversations with Jim Hawkins.

Silver, played by Owen Teale (Alliser Thorne from Game of Thrones), was almost unnervingly well portrayed. His gruff, gravelly voice of one of the most infamous pirates of them all had me transfixed, His portrayal of the cunning, conniving manipulation of all involved in the treasure hunt was top remarkable.

If you've not read Treasure Island before, or even if you have, this rendition is well worth a listen.
