Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Robert Louis Stevenson's cherished, unforgettable adventure magically captures the thrill of a sea voyage and a treasure hunt through the eyes of its teenage protagonist, Jim Hawkins. Crossing the Atlantic in search of the buried cache, Jim and the ship's crew must brave the elements and a mutinous charge led by the quintessentially ruthless pirate Long John Silver. Brilliantly conceived and splendidly executed, it is a novel that has seized the imagination of generations of adults and children alike. And as David Cordingly points out in his Introduction, Treasure Island is also the best and most influential of all the stories about pirates.

Synopsis:

Stevenson's unforgettable, cherished adventure of pirates and buried treasure.

Bonnie Palmer, April 18, 2008 (view all comments by Bonnie Palmer)
This was my first favorite book as a kid. When I began to re-read this childhood classic as a middle-aged woman, I wondered what attracted a younger me to what definitely seems today like a boy’s book. As I finished the book, I knew exactly what the attraction was: a ripping good yarn, with a mercurial villain, set in an exotic location and punctuated with salty seafarers’ jargon – what’s not to love – or as Long John would put it, “Shiver me timbers!”
