From 1,287 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.

    Read this years ago as a Year 6 with my favourite ever teacher, Alan Cook. Then again this summer on the beach. Long John Silver - what a character. Only Fagin can match him.

    This book is a rollicking tale of pirates, hidden treasure, and Jack Hawkins' adventures at sea, told with great passion by one of Scotland's finest writers - Robert Louis Stevenson. The writing is colourful; beautifully crafted; full of colourful descriptions and lively seafaring language. A great yarn suitable for children and adults alike.

  • Treasure Island

    By Salty Baxter
    Treasure Island is page turner for all those looking to write a great thriller. The plot and sub-plot is delivered with equal measure. Character are colourful with just enough to keep them interesting. The ending is left on a cliff hanger of a question, room for another tale of the high seas. A classic that deserves to be re-read often.
  • Fantastic Book for Adults & Children

    By Dolltastic
    I never read this as a child, however I have now read it three times to my young children and they love it as much as me. It's exciting, at times scary, and a great story of Pirates and Treasure. Give it a try!
