Island Nights' Entertainments


Read by Tony Addison

(4.6 stars; 7 reviews)

A marvelous depiction of two sides of South Sea Islands' life through three separate tales. One, the experience of the incoming British keen to live free and exploit the innocent; the other the supernatural as perceived by Stevenson working in the lives of the natives. One tale carries the germ of the story of Madame Butterfly, since become a part of Western culture. Another is an extraordinary retelling of a German horror story transposed to a South Sea Island setting. The last is an effort of the pure Stevensonian imagination and there can be nothing better. - Summary by TONY ADDISON (5 hr 44 min)

Amazing stories

(5 stars)

Truly fantastic stories, all of them. I can’t speak highly enough for the quality of the stories... the narration , for me, was another matter. But no matter because I was so engrossed in the plots I was able to get past his voice. I highly recommend this!

DELIGHTFUL POTPOURRI
