No real need for another review. Most adults know the story but I had forgotten how short it was. Maybe the language made it difficult when I was younger but now it seems to zip along. Enjoyed it.more
Grandly entertaining story of a a young man's acquistion of a treasure map and the ensuing treasure hunt. Not as engaging as it could have been due to the way the story is segmented, but still a great read I enjoyed very much.more
Treasure Island is a classic pirate adventure story! I recently watched the 2012 TV movie "Treasure Island," and since I had not read this story as a kid, decided to read it as an adult. I can't believe I missed out on this adventure as a kid! The descriptions of the pirates and of life at sea and on the island are vivid and imaginative. The character Jim Hawkins is relatable and likeable. Definitely a fun bedtime story for kids - and adults!more
