Treasure Island

Robert Louis Stevenson

Book Overview: 

Treasure Island is an adventure novel, a thrilling tale of “buccaneers and buried gold.” 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.

A mysterious map, pirates, and pieces of eight! When young Jim Hawkins finds a map to pirates’ gold he starts on an adventure that takes him from his English village to a desert island with the murderous Black Dog, half-mad Ben Gunn, and (of course) Long John Silver. Arr Jim lad!

The next ten or twelve pages were filled with a curious series of entries. There was a date at one end of the line and at the other a sum of money, as in common account-books; but instead of explanatory writing, only a varying number of crosses between the two. On the 12th of June, 1745, for instance, a sum of seventy pounds had plainly become due to someone, and there was nothing but six crosses to explain the cause. In a few cases, to be sure, the name of a place would be added, as "Offe Caraccas"; or a mere entry of latitude and longitude, as "62° 17′ 20″, 19° 2′ 40″."

The record lasted over nearly twenty years, the amount of the separate entries growing larger as time went on, and at the end a grand total had been made out, after five or six wrong additions, and these words appended, "Bones, his pile."

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 resi

My absolute favourite adventure story of them all. You have the Admiral Benbow, a little boy named Jim Hawkins, "Captain" Billy Bones, a cruffy old pirate, an incredible eerie pre-story (black spot), a treasure hunt, the ghost of Flint (Peter Gunn), the fight with Israel Hands and of course the one-

As Indiana Jones once, rather astutely pointed out, when it comes to treasure "X never, ever marks the spot".
