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.

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

    The love of money...the root of all evil, and the basis for an incredible adventure for young Jim Hawkins, who proves more than a match for a crew of cut throat pirates.
