Description

Treasure Island is an adventure novel, a thrilling tale of "buccaneers and buried gold". Traditionally considered a coming of age story, it is an adventure tale of superb atmosphere, character and action, and also a wry commentary on the ambiguity of morality—as seen in Long John Silver—unusual for children's literature then and now.

    A wonderful story that keeps the reader's interest. The spoken language of the mid 19th century is at times almost unrecognizable to an early 21st century reader. The sometimes ugly nature of men is laid bare and makes this book unsuitable for children under 12.

    A very good book. Gets interesting starting a little bit before the middle. Kinda boring at the beginning. But overall a very good book.

    Reading this again much later in my life is a pure joy. I can see why Mr. Stevenson found the sea and the pirate nature so alluring. One day I must might go to an antique shop, scour about until I find a treasure map and off I will go!
  • If only there were half a star

    I'm in a sixth grade reading class and had to read this book. It started off ok but it gets very very boring. I would only suggest reading if you have too. I would've rated half a star but ones the lowest 😡

    I read this book for school and I really like the storyline and how there is always something coming around the corner that you would have no idea was possibly going to happen.
  • Treasure Island, a true classic

    I loved this novel. It really did pick up after they set off to the Island. 5 stars for the great adventure.
