Publisher Description

An Apple Books Classic edition.


When Billy Bones first walks into Jim Hawkins’ family-run inn, the prevailing sentiments are fear…and curiosity about what’s in his oversized chest. After a band of rogue pirates comes looking for him, Billy dies, leaving Jim and his mother in possession of his belongings, which contain a map leading to the treasure of the dreaded Captain Flint.


Robert Louis Stevenson’s swashbuckling adventure story plays out on the high seas-and it’s packed to the gills with heart-pounding suspense, double crosses, mutiny, mayhem, and even murder. First published as a magazine serial in the 1880s, Treasure Island set the standard for action-adventure thrillers. Hop in and prepare for a wild ride, complete with peg-legged pirates and their trusted parrots, casks of rum, tropical islands, and X marks the spot!

Treasure island

It was a great book with a very interesting story line, however it was written a long time ago so it not very well composed,and the pirate talk was hard to follow.

WOW!

This book is a bit hard to read for younger children, but wow, by the end end i can see why it's a classic. Not your typical pirate thriller, but full of swashbuckling mutinous fun. Makes you want to be a pirate!!! Great for any Pirates of the Caribbean Fan (like ME!) <3

A wonderful read

This book is by no means a small feat. Unless you're learned of ships and their inner workings it would probably be best to keep a dictionary close by. However, lengthy and in depth it may be, it starts quickly and never fails to keep attention, something that more modern books could learn a thing or two from. Everything in this book well crafted and would definitely be worth anyone's time to read.
