For those of us who loves movies, our vision of Jim will forever be that baby-faced Jackie Cooper and Wallace Beery is Long John Silver. Listening Library gives us this unabridged audiobook version of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale of a cabin boy about a ship whose crew mutinies, turns pirate, and goes off in search of buried treasure. Alfred Molina brings his considerable talents as an actor to bear on this adventure story, with his gravel-toned voice and precise diction. As a bonus, there's an audio essay by author and English naval historian David Cordingly. All in all, splendid piece of work.
