Listen to a sample chapter of Treasure Island Audiobook!
Treasure Island is a rousing tale of “buccaneers and buried gold”. Likely the most popular and well known pirate story ever written, the famed novel is an iconic view into the life of pirates of old. Follow along with the extraordinary tale of a boy, Jim Hawkins, who chances to come into possession of Captain Flint’s treasure map, after a buccaneer takes a room at Jim’s father’s inn and later dies. The map spreads its ill luck to all who know of it. A local squire outfits a ship to voyage to the Treasure Island, unearth the treasure, and bring it home. Little does he suspect, however, that the man he has hired aboard as cook was formerly Flint’s quartermaster, the deceitful and disloyal, greedy and visceral Long John Silver, who then connives to hire many of his old mates. Once ashore, pirates being pirates, what follows is a mutiny. Jim and a handful of honest men find themselves harried and hunted by the rest of the crew, leaving the listener on the edge of their seat. The pirate treasure, amassed by so much blood and death, is about to reach out and claim more victims! The unexpected and complex relationship that develops between Silver and Jim helps transform what starts out as just another pirate adventure story, into a deeply moving study of a boy’s growth into manhood. As the story evolves, Jim learns hard lessons about friendship, loyalty, courage, and honor, as well as the uncertain meaning of good and evil.
