  1. Someone recently asked me what review I enjoyed writing the most, and, well, this is it I have a massive problem with this book It s one I m a little embarrassed to admit The problem is not with the writing or the characters that Stevenson has created it s not even with the plot The problem resides with Kermit the Frog Stay with me here I grew up watching the muppets I became slightly obsessed with them I kind of wanted to join them So, whenever I read about Captain Smollett and Long John Silver [...]

  2. YO HO HO AND A BOTTLE OF RUM This is the iconic novel about pirates that it stands as the best example in this topic and easily one of the most adapted to other media novels in any genre.I can remember having watched several adaptations, live action films, animated movies, even an animated film using animals as the characters, there is the Muppets one, a Japanese anime TV series, an European mini series taking the story to outer space starring Anthony Quinn, the animated remake of that version b [...]

  3. Three items worthy of note in R L Stevenson s classic treasure, Treasure Island 1 There are a ton of tropes We understand that this is pretty much what Disney s Pirates of the Caribbean ripped off, making tons of money off of this adventurous classic, including but not limited to rampant alcoholism a code of honor castaways at sea or in land shipwrecks new and ancient treason group individual double crosses mutiny, hostages, captures and shocking escapes strangers appearing from the mist pirate [...]

  4. Treasure Island is arguably one of the most influential tales in the world of fiction Every pirate stereotype that we take for granted these days we can see the foundation somewhere in this magic tale Approaching this story I am quite lucky that I knew nothing about the plot except that there was a map where X marked the spot showcasing Captain Flint s legendary treasure I went into the task of reading this like a happy youth, wide eyed looking forward to experiencing a legendary story for the f [...]

  5. Remember when pirates briefly became ironically cool, and all of your annoying friends were joining facebook groups for International Talk Like A Pirate Day And the first Pirates of the Carribbean movie came out and was surprisingly awesome And then the second Pirates of the Carribbean movie came out and was decidedly less awesome, but you didn t really realize it until the third one came out and you discovered you couldn t remember and didn t care about number two s cliffhanger ending it was li [...]

  6. As Indiana Jones once, rather astutely pointed out, when it comes to treasure X never, ever marks the spot Well, it does if you re a pirate, which basically means that as a pirate you have a statistically much higher chance of finding treasure than any archaeologist ever would I find this a bit unfortunate and if someone had presented me with this hard and fast evidence I would have ticked the pirate box and not the archaeologist box on my careers worksheet at school Instead, I have to make do w [...]

  7. ARRrrr, me reader Embark now on a voyage of high seas adventure with scurvy pirates, honest jack tar sailors, marooned souls, and a vast treasure buried on some faraway island Aye, that s Treasure Island Weigh anchor, me laddie The wind s always fair for gettin this wonderful tale under way HAHAAAAARRRGGGHHHAAAaaaa g, that s exhausting.

  8. Book Review4 out of 5 stars to Treasure Island, a coming of age of sort novel, written in 1882 by Robert Louis Stevenson I read this book as a young adult when I received it as a Christmas present from an aunt and uncle At first, although I knew it was a classic, I wasn t too anxious to jump into it I wasn t a big fan of pirates and boats I wasn t a normal kid, what can I tell you But it was a gift and I thought I should give it a chance And once I did, I loved it I had read Peter Pan recently a [...]

  9. Honestly I only read this so I could appreciate Disney s Treasure Planet even I m not sure I would ve liked this book quite as much without that reference point, but it was fun to see the connections I was mostly picturing these characters, though

  10. 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 young boy named Jim Hawkins got his hands on a map showing the location of a buried pirate treasure by a pure accident A group of people is ready to go on a treasure hunt, but their plans are about to be de [...]

  11. Treasure Island was a swash buckling adventure where the stakes were high and the Gentlemen of Fortune weren t so gentle when seeking their fortune I absolutely loved this book Having never read it before, I picked it up because it looked to be a quick read, and I had books on route to my house and not much time before they got here, I thought I d get another quick read off my list of classics Immediately upon reading I wanted to get on a boat and search for buried treasure, but settled for play [...]

  12. Long ago I was chatting with a colleague and put it to him that we could send out to all the people who had particularly annoyed us at work an envelope containing a single sheet of paper, entirely blank, save for a large black spot My colleague, despite his unnecessary youthfulness, was sagacious beyond his years, and pointed out that most of the people who had really got our goats had probably never read Treasure Island Acquainted as we were with their varying degrees of semi literacy I had to [...]

  13. Una de mis novelas preferidas porque est endiabladamente bien escrita, porque no puedes parar de leer, porque es pura aventura y por supuesto, por John Silver

  14. Nuevamente, y por la naturaleza de este libro que le , decid embarcarme en una novela de aventuras Luego de leer Robur, el Conquistador de Julio Verne, uno de mis dolos literarios de la ni ez, necesitaba releer ste, algo que yo hab a hecho hace treinta a os atr s y por eso decid comprar la edici n de Penguin Cl sicos Muchas veces me sucede que ciertas novelas de argumento complicado o desenlace tr gico me saturan y me es necesario alivianar un poco la carga, despej ndome con una que me haga disf [...]

  15. In one of Manny s 1,682 reviews no, I can t remember which one he says that it must have been incredibly exciting being an avid reader of modern novels in the 1880s and 1890s Not only were they churning out great classics at a rate of knots, they were inventing whole genres Dracula, Sherlock Holmes, Picture of Dorian Gray, HG Wells and Treasure Island is one of those, a novel which invented a whole a harr talk like a pirate genre Stevenson s prose is quite magical, he absolutely convinced me wit [...]

  16. 8 10 When you encounter a haggard and bedraggled fellow in the middle of an uninhabited island that you have sailed to to find treasure, and the fellow in question claims that he is rich, you could undoubtedly decide that you have succeeded in your mission Claim the prize Flee the scene End of the story Alas, that is not how Robert Louis Stevenson envisaged the ending At this point, you have than two thirds of the book to finish Yet you carry on as if you haven t a clue about how the mariners w [...]

  17. Fifteen men on the dead man s chest Yo ho ho, and a bottle of rum 3.5 starsThis book started many well known sayings, nods and tributes towards pirates and the sea life the love pirates have of rum, Long John Silver, treasure maps with the X marking the spot, the bird on the shoulder of the pirate, some of the songs all had to start somewhere, and apparently Treasure Island hit the spot It s filled with well rounded, enjoyable characters Jim as the main, a mere child, was easy to enjoy as he led [...]

  18. My first time to read this book The reason why I read this book now is that my favorite author, Frank McCourt mentioned in his memoir Teacher Man that Robert Louis Stevenson was his favorite author when he was a young boy in Ireland When he moved to New York and during the first year of schooling, he submitted Treasure Island as his home reading book and his literature teacher was impressed because his American classmates submitted books of contemporary now forgotten authors After reading this b [...]

  19. It s been decades since I last read this treasured classic see what I did there P and thought it would be perfect summer reading I devoured it in 2 sittings Stevenson pulls you into the journey and for those few hours magically transports you back in time to the swashbuckling decks of the Hispaniola But thats not all By telling the adventure through the eyes of young Jim, you also get that wonderful feeling that usually escapes us adults, that life is an adventure and anything is possible.If you [...]

  20. Last year I read Kidnapped and I was truly amazed by the fact that I ignored the existence of such a good novel, so I decided that I definitively have to read Stevenson Treasure Island was the second novel I ever read I was too young and I didn t remember neither the plot nor the characters nor anything Truth be told I remember it was a novel about a treasure in a desert island and someone a pirate called John Silver Even though I had completely forgotten what Treasure Island was about besides [...]

  22. Never trust a pirate.I really love pirates even though I try to ignore the fact that they re dirty, rapists, murderers, alcoholics, thieves aaah many bad things but still, I like the concept so here I am reading this book Since it s summer I tend to go towards these stories One of my wishes is to become a pirate for a determinate amount of time I d love to sail away for a while with Jack Sparrow I know, who doesn t love Jack Sparrow daydreams After reading and reading and reading some I decided [...]

  24. This was a hoot to listen to as an audio book very well narrated by Neil Hunt This is the mother of every pirate story I ve ever read or seen, I think The language was incomprehensible at times, on purpose, as even Jim Hawkins wasn t sure he always got the right of it If I ever hear 15 men on a dead man s chest again, I ll scream The characters were great, of course Long John Silver is quite the rogue Jim is the boy we all wish we were Somehow our extraneous adventures never turned out half so w [...]
