From 3,972 Ratings


Treasure Island is an adventure novel, a thrilling tale of "buccaneers and buried gold". Traditionally considered a coming of age story, 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 then and now.


  • Treasure Island

    By Cavus I
    A wonderful story that keeps the reader's interest. The spoken language of the mid 19th century is at times almost unrecognizable to an early 21st century reader. The sometimes ugly nature of men is laid bare and makes this book unsuitable for children under 12.

    A very good book. Gets interesting starting a little bit before the middle. Kinda boring at the beginning. But overall a very good book.

    Reading this again much later in my life is a pure joy. I can see why Mr. Stevenson found the sea and the pirate nature so alluring. One day I must might go to an antique shop, scour about until I find a treasure map and off I will go!

    I'm in a sixth grade reading class and had to read this book. It started off ok but it gets very very boring. I would only suggest reading if you have too. I would've rated half a star but ones the lowest 😡
  • Good book

    I read this book for school and I really like the storyline and how there is always something coming around the corner that you would have no idea was possibly going to happen.

    I loved this novel. It really did pick up after they set off to the Island. 5 stars for the great adventure.

    The love of money...the root of all evil, and the basis for an incredible adventure for young Jim Hawkins, who proves more than a match for a crew of cut throat pirates.

    I have read this book three times in two years and it still never fails to fascinate.
