Treasure Island


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.4 stars; 144 reviews)

Treasure Island is an adventure novel, a thrilling tale of "buccaneers and buried gold." Traditionally considered a coming of age story, it is an adventure tale of superb atmosphere, character and action, and also a wry commentary on the ambiguity of morality—as seen in Long John Silver—unusual for children's literature then and now.

Reviews

Good old book

(5 stars)

I tried reading this when I was 8 years old, never Finnish it. Years later tried again... never finished, then some 50 years later. Listened to it on here... finished it.

problems

(0 stars)

Although I didn't download this, when I was streaming it there were several chapters that sound like the chipmunks. These are chs 5-6,9-10, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 25-26, 31, and 32. I tried several times and the problem continued but I'm not sure where to address the issue on this site.

Arr Matey!

This is a collaborative reading of Treasure Island from Librivox.org. This is a great book, and a great reading. Well worth listening to!

Too many readers and too many sloooowww readers. One guy had a whistle on his S's which was very annoying.

A Classic

(3 stars)

I had to read this book for school and I don't necessarily recommend it. I thought it was pretty boring. The audiobook did make it better though. Treasure Island is a classic.

Good book- pretty good readers

(4.5 stars)

A few of the readers were not very good at reading entertainingly. But the last few chapters are read well and so I'm happy.

(4 stars)

The only error was the bookmarked. the other day, I bookmarked at Chap. 29, but it reads Chap. 19 instead. I hope u fix this error.

I had to read it for school which was annoying. Some chapters I found more interesting than others, but over all a ok book.
