Teenagers?Yes
Adults?Yes

Comments: This classic is elegantly plotted, and executed. The narration I listened to was superb, making all the accented pirate voices flow perfectly. I can't image reading this book. With all the weirdly written words, I wouldn't know what they were talking about half the time. Anyhow, this is an adventure, with a brave little hero. Great for any young adult. I would say middle grade but there are some content issues with that age range. Still I recommend listening to it.
