Description

In the eastern reaches of the Thames lies the Hispaniola, an inn kept by Jim Hawkins and his son. Late one night, a mysterious girl named Natty arrives on the river with a request for Jim from her father - Long John Silver. Aged and weak, but still possessing a strange power, the pirate proposes Jim and Natty sail to Treasure Island in search of Captain Flint's hidden bounty. But the thrill of the ocean odyssey gives way to terror as the Nightingale reaches its destination, for it seems Treasure Island is not as uninhabited as it once was... Silver is a worthy sequel to Treasure Island and a work of extraordinary authenticity and imaginative power from one of England's greatest writers.

Professional reviews

"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. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
