Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson Book Summary

Treasure Island is an adventure novel by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, narrating a tale of "buccaneers and buried gold". First published as a book on 23 May 1883, it was originally serialized in the children's magazine Young Folks between 1881 and 1882 under the title Treasure Island or, the mutiny of the Hispaniola with Stevenson adopting the pseudonym Captain George North.
Traditionally considered a coming-of-age story, Treasure Island is a tale known for its atmosphere, characters and action, and also as a wry commentary on the ambiguity of morality — as seen in Long John Silver — unusual for children's literature now and then. It is one of the most frequently dramatized of all novels. The influence of Treasure Island on popular perceptions of pirates is enormous, including treasure maps marked with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen carrying parrots on their shoulders.

Treasure Island (Robert Louis Stevenson) Book Reviews

An amazing and satisfying pirate storyI don’t read much, and I never write reviews on anything, but this book is deserving of one. Definitely my favorite pirate story so far..Score: 5/5

I drank in every wordWhat a superb read ! I went over most passages twice, they were so enjoyable. Unbelievably rare that a book written in 1885 still has every word interesting and exciting to the modern reader. Long John Silver is an amazing character , and all the characters are well drawn - RLS had a superb knowledge of human mature. Read it - you will be glad you did!.Score: 5/5

A Timeless AdventureA wonderful story full of interesting characters on every level of gray the spectrum offers. It’s truly a story with nary a dry moment. It now ranks among my favorites, as does Robert Louis Stevenson as an author. This is my second of his in a row after “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” and the man doesn’t disappoint. It’s helped me through this pandemic, escaping to the sea with Jim Hawkens, Dr. Livesy, Captain Smollett and of course, John Silver. Pop culture would have you believing this is a simplistic tale with little nuance when it’s anything but. The pictures painted by Stevenson’s words are both poetic and riveting to follow. I don’t know when I’ll visit Skeleton Island with the crew again but I know when I do, I’ll ask myself why I waited so long. Do yourself the favor..Score: 5/5

As advertisedI have seen two movies based on this book that I have never read. This book is far better then any movie can give justice. Lots of twist and turns in he story..Score: 4/5

Treasure IslandI give this book because it’s full of adventure and is a little mysterious. The characters are very unipue compared to each other because of their characteristics. I hope you come to enjoy the book as much as I did..Score: 5/5

Treasure IslandSuperb expressive tale, certainly not for the younger kids with all its complexities and bloodthirsty murders. My wife and I enjoyed it hugely, reading a couple of chapters a day. It is extremely well written, with every action leading onto the next, and making one wonder what will follow. A masterpiece of its kind, highly suitable for adults with imagination..Score: 5/5

Try it!!!!This is a great way to calm yourself and helps with your mental health. Good for some people. Looking forward to my next book..Score: 5/5
