John Lee’s performance provides an excellent reason to listen to this classic of English literature. Like the author and the novel’s protagonist, Lee is British. His deep voice recounts the memories of a sailor stranded alone on an island off the coast of Brazil. The story also gives Lee the opportunity to show his skill with the many accents of foreign sailors, adding a delightful authenticity to the yarn. Some narrators founder miserably in the sea of peculiar words used aboard sailing ships of the seventeenth century, but Lee handles them as though he has been aboard a ship all his life. Don't mistake this survival story as being intended solely for children, for it has all the complexities of language, suspense, and action adults love in great books.
