TREASURE ISLAND by Robert Louis Stevenson, read by Jasper Britton
Stevenson's tale of high adventure and mutiny is filled with colorful characters that are now considered pirate archetypes. English actor Jasper Britton expertly avoids running aground into pantomime, representing strong, distinct character voices with incredible range and layers of emotion. Reviewed by Lilia Murray.
