Take a well-read classic filled with larger-than-life characters and pair it with a master narrator. Voilà—you’ve got a brand-new classic. Alfred Molina’s narration is like pulling up a chair next to a fire on a chilly night and being chilled all over again by Stevenson’s tale of piracy on the high seas. Molina’s portrayals are perfection. He’s a careful observer in his depiction of young Jim Hawkins and just as easily becomes mild-mannered Dr. Livesey, blustery Squire Trelawney, and unctuous, rebellious Long John Silver. Nonstop action and suspense make this a perfect listen for all family members, who may begin to chime in with the many “yo-ho-hos.” S.W.
