Ha! Double Ha! I Looooved how everyone turned on everyone at a drop of a hat on the "Pirates of the Caribean" movies. Now I know where they got it from. Bases, teams and situations changed constantly in this one. It's great fun. One gets so used to classics staying in print for serious reasons, ...

Despite this book being the progenitor of pretty much all of the pirate books of the 20th Century, as well as being an influence of many of the adventure and 'boys' books that came afterwards, I found this book rather dull. Maybe it has a lot to do with my lack of enthusiasm for 19th Century English...

I love that my 7th grader was assigned Treasure Island for English Class. In school my English teachers did their very best to kill my love for reading. Grapes of Wrath? Snooze. Thank goodness for Cliffs Notes. Treasure Island, though? Winner. I hadn't read it myself, though it'd been holding ...

A treasure map where X marks the spot, a schooner set to sail, a onelegged seaman with a parrot on his shoulder, a boy whose bravery will be tested by murder, mutiny, and betrayal — Robert Louis Stevenson’s well-loved tale is the ultimate swashbuckling adventure. Sweeping a path from the sleepy Engl...

This is my first time reading Treasure Island. I guess I'm not good at reading "the classics". I am a big fan of dystopian stories and current fiction. So, maybe classics just aren't my thing. But, I feel like I should try to get through some of them, just because they are classics. Treasure Isla...

Thsi book written by RL Stevenson is really the best adventure book ever written. Treasure Island takes the readers on an unforgettable journey in the ocean. The twists and turn are really breath taking. I reccommend it to everyone.

Complete fun. Adventure with a capital "A", with just a few lagging, slower scenes. Jim Hawkins was such a delight to read - his impulsive behavior reminded me of my own two boys who follow their crazy whims without a moment of hesitation. Much like L.M. Montgomery's Anne, Stevenson paints a pic...

The book's blurb says "The most popular pirate story ever written in English" and they are not kidding about it. Practically every pirate tale written since then was influenced by this classic. I do not think I really need to mention the plot as it is widely known, but I will do it just in case. A y...

I love pirates and pirate stories. The adventure and independence on the high-seas is something that speaks to old boyhood fantasies. Sadly, I didn't find much of that adventure in Treasure Island. It was interesting seeing where all of the pirate story conventions originated, but otherwise it wasn'...
