Consider the possibilities: Long John Silver's daughter and Jim Hawkins's son conspire to search for Captain Flint's hidden cache, reviving Robert Louis Stevenson's immortal classic, TREASURE ISLAND. Then add to the sequel's dark and perilous mix the acting talent of Scottish actor David Tennant, and you will be immersed in an audiobook that soars with imagination, suspense, hilarity, and romance. Tennant’s every word is magic. His guttural vowel pronunciations resonate delightfully, and his piratical rasps and mimicry of mynah bird Spot are amazing. Andrew Motion's pastiche captures the period's formal prose, which sparkles with vivid description and dynamic exploits. The young couple's odyssey reveals greed, grudges, deception, and evil consequences as they courageously strive to gain what was seemingly lost. A.W.
