Perhaps Stevenson’s best-known work, this adventure novel set in the eighteenth century is inspired by the actual exploits of pirate Captain Kidd and the search for his buried treasure. For pure imaginative delight, Treasure Island is unsurpassed. From the moment young Jim Hawkins meets the blind pirate Pew at the Admiral Benbow inn, to the spirited battle for hidden treasure on a tropical island, the novel spawns unforgettable scenes and characters that have thrilled young and old for more than a century.

Stevenson’s romance is noted for its swift, clearly-depicted action, its memorable character types—especially of Long John Silver—and its sustained atmosphere of menace. A story of a classic battle between good and evil, it illustrates one young boy’s rite of passage into the dangerous world of mature responsibilities.

  • “The swashbuckling adventure of a lifetime. With its dastardly plot and motley crew of rogues and villains, it seems unlikely that children will ever say no to this timeless classic.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • Treasure Island…must have been the first book I ever read from start to finish, with unforgettable characters, Long John Silver, Blind Pew, Ben Gunn...The Black Spot still terrifies me.”

    Sting, multi-Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter and musician

  • “I don’t know of a more gripping tale of derring-do on the high seas, with its desperate search for hidden gold on a tropical island.”

    Independent (London)

  • “A rereading of Stevenson’s novel after all those years says nothing to me so much as that good books—and Treasure Island is a very good book—really have lives of their own, entirely apart from movies and other adaptations of them.”

    Washington Post

  • Treasure Island is a vision not only of white skeletons but also green palm trees and sapphire seas.”

    G. K. Chesterton

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meghan | 2/11/2014

    " Always with a soft spot for Robert Louis Stevenson, I love this book more every time I read it. Stevenson has the visceral descriptions and actions perfect for a stage or movie adaptation. The Charleton Heston, Christian Bale version is forever locked in my memory as the beginnings of my pirate, seafaring, adventure obsessions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sissy | 2/10/2014

    " I grew up on the 50s cinema version of this tale and remember loving it as a kid. In preparation for my sailing expedition, I thought I would revisit and actually read the tale. I thought it was excellent! An adventure and then some, I was inspired to check out Flint and Silver, which I didn't even finish chapter one of. Oh well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dee | 2/9/2014

    " Read it as a child - loved it. Revisited it as an adult - still loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miss | 2/8/2014

    " Yeah this really just made me want to read another Jacky Faber book. It's decent enough on an adventure level but Jim's lack of personality left me longing for Jacky. Navy adventures starring a charismatic flirtatious 'peaceful sort of coward' versus a kid who lucks his way into being plot relevant? The former all the way. Long John Silver was more interesting but sadly this is not a novel about the morally bankrupt cons of a highly effective pirate. 3 stars "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 L | 2/5/2014

    " I don't know how I made it this long without reading this, but the nice thing about these classics is that they're often easily found for free for an e-book, so I loaded a bunch of them up to read. There were no illustrations in the version I read, but I have spent so many visits gazing at the NC Wyeth Treasure Island illustrations up at the Brandywine River Museum, I had these crystal clear pictures in my head every time I saw one of the quotations he used as a title, which added greatly to my enjoyment of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Skye | 2/5/2014

    " Classic! We all know the story, but it was fun to actually read the book. I can see why it catches kids' (especially boys') attention. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorie | 2/4/2014

    " I have never read Treasure Island, but I love how this book was condensed and had pictures to keep the kids interested. I am sure they did not understand it all but they could not wait for them to find the treasure! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Luke Creighton | 1/31/2014

    " Fun and exciting. This book is not just for children...it just happens to be about a young man so children can relate to it. I don't think we'd see the pirate genre in nearly the same jovial light if we'd never met parotted, one-legged versions "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erica Ruth | 1/25/2014

    " This was a page turner. The social commentary was so dead on, it could have been written yesterday. "

    " Adventure on the High Seas!!! Good Fun!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dasairi | 1/21/2014

    " A fun, classic pirate and adventure tale. Not difficult to read and gobbles up quickly. Just as fun to read the next dozen times, too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jake | 1/19/2014

    " I liked this book. The problem I had with this book was it was hard to fallow where the characters were. The book was different the way the authors right then compared to now. They use words like thus,furthermore. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meade | 1/18/2014

    " This was a fun book to read on a cruise! The Wyeth illustrations are very interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy Moffett | 1/15/2014

    " It's a classic; exciting in a more subtle way than current books for young readers. I did enjoy it, and don't think I had read it before. Long John Silver is bad! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben | 1/13/2014

    " One of the most exciting, thrilling books I've read in a long time. Pirates! Murder! Danger! Treasure! Oh, and it's not one of those trick titles, there really is a treasure island. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison West | 1/10/2014

    " A swashbuckling tail for boys! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thimira Anjana | 1/10/2014

    " Treasure Island is undoubtedly great, for its originality, master storytelling and incredibly fascinating adventures which make you bite your nails till the whole thing is over. Of course, if you really love to read about sea adventures, bloodthirsty pirates and quest for treasure, simply, you have to read this; and I must say that I was not the least sorry for reserving my time for this masterpiece, page turner, or anything you could call it. I usually condemn telling somebody the plot or what happens in a story in advance before he/she reads it. Being told, I hate equally, since it just damages the astonishment and the suspense a reader should get from the book. So I will just say, "There should not be an avid reader of adventure who has never read Treasure Island. Read it. You'll love it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sherry | 1/9/2014

    " did not read this as a child, just a few years ago. enjoyed it immensley "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 1/6/2014

    " A great classic pirate story. It's very dark, which makes me chuckle that this was a kids book back in the day. I recommend it if you're in the mood for an adventure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristen Bohanon | 1/1/2014

    " Awesome book! Makes my top list of books you must read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nolena | 12/25/2013

    " Amazing adventure book. Who doesn't like pirates? This timeless tale of a pirate adventure is filled with so much detail and action, you won't be able to put it down. "

    " Recently reread - it was fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ri | 12/19/2013

    " I think all the seafaring terminology put me off reading this for far too long. It's a great story, and you can see where modernity's notion of pirates gets most of its cues. Loved Silver. He's everything you could want in the villain pirate--clever, charming, wicked, and wily. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Giorgio | 11/12/2013

    " Un libro divertente, intrigante, angosciante in maniera pazzesca e incredibile in certi momenti, mi si ghiaccia il cuore se penso a quali sono i libri in vetta alle classifiche di vendita, quando ci sono tali capolavori praticamente gratis che per varie ragioni vengono snobbati o ignorati. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe Gaskill | 11/9/2013

    " I read this when I was younger, didn't really like it. But I reread it recently and really enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Victoria | 11/3/2013

    " Enjoyable adventure, not a big favourite. I was more impressed by the 'Flint and Silver' trilogy by John Drake. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alan Caramatti | 11/1/2013

    " An excellent book, read by an excellent voice talent, with high seas music to open up the vista. My wife and I listened to this on a long road trip and thoroughly enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Perla | 9/14/2013

    " A thrilling tale if ever there was; Long John Silver has lived up to his reputation as the cunning one-legged mutineer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 9/11/2013

    " Having my father read this aloud to me as a child was one of my most positive memories. It saddens me that my children don't have the patience for the language. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff | 7/30/2013

    " I have enjoyed this book since high school. The complex and dangerous John Silver who is bigger than life. It is not the most wonderful book ever but it is a fun read and a nice trip out of reality. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Molly | 7/28/2013

    " 1st book in my book club with Ed. Love free classics on the Kindle. Enjoyed it though needed Ed to explain some of the nautical terms to me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maria Wheeler | 7/7/2013

    " This one was a bit empty for me-with a very predictable ending after all of the conflict was sorted out. The language was a welcome challenge but I would have added something: a reunion with Jim's mother, a woman, a final twist. I enjoyed it, nonetheless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ian | 6/30/2013

    " Definitely one of the best 'classic's I've read. Much more engaging than Gulliver's Travels to my mind. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tom Foreman | 6/22/2013

    " I read it as a class-book, so it may have taken away from the book, but it was nothing special. Granted it was funny at points, but... "

    " Any well written book about pirates is great but this one is special in its well developed plot (some pirate books are more about scurvy and riff raff carousing in ports than anything else.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fiona Mckenzie | 5/31/2013

    " Not my bottle of rum... but a rollicking yarn nonetheless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glenn Garriock | 4/30/2013

    " Never read Treasure Island at school but it's a story that I felt I already knew all about because it's many references in Film. Was surprised at how much I loved it! Such a fast-paced story. Easy to imagine how and why it has inspired so many writers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arwashafi | 4/26/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nikki | 4/2/2013

    " So much fun to read. And since I somehow managed to be alive for 23 years without finding out the plot of Treasure Island, it was also really exciting to see the story unfold. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marie Renner | 3/10/2013

    " I liked it but I thought it had a really slow start "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane Finch | 2/4/2013

    " Yo ho ho, & a bottle of rum! Colorful characters & a well-crafted, amusing-though-bloodsoaked plot - I'm sorry the perception of this as a "boy's story" kept me away for so long. Ditto "Robinson Crusoe." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim Dundorf | 1/1/2013

    " This book was an enthralling classic. As I read through, I began to see how many contemporary works are influenced by this story. Every chapter which I read, heretofore unnoticed homages, references, and adaptations seemed to jump into my consciousness. "

    " I thought this book was confusing in some places. Mainly when how the pirates talk and just the way the book is written makes it hard to understand. Aside from that it was definitely not the best book I've ever read. "

    " I enjoyed how the book was written and laid out. It was in journal form seen through the eyes of Jim Hawkin. I enjoyed how it showed about how the intentions of humans change. Overall, this is a classic tale that takes the reader on a perilous, action-packed adventure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gretchen Swain | 3/1/2012

    " I have been curious about this book for a while. It was a little different than I was expecting, but was still a good read. It took a little bit of time to get into it, but once I did I couldn't put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anthony Bamonte | 2/13/2012

    " I have been curious about this book for a while. It was a little different than I was expecting, but was still a good read. It took a little bit of time to get into it, but once I did I couldn't put it down. "

    " This book was an enthralling classic. As I read through, I began to see how many contemporary works are influenced by this story. Every chapter which I read, heretofore unnoticed homages, references, and adaptations seemed to jump into my consciousness. "

    " It was an interesting book. I didn't really get the ending. Some parts had some yucky scenes, but overall, it was ok. Not really for kids under twelve. "

    " It was okay, but dragged on way too long. I can see where Disney got their inspiration for the Pirates of the Carribean ride. "

    " When I picked up this book, I initially thought that it would take me a week to read. Amazingly enough, I finished in several hours. This book(even though it's been a long time) really captured my attention and always left me asking for more. Great book! "

    " Great classic. Found myself immersed in the the age of Pirates. I read this to my 6 year old son and we both really enjoyed it. Gruesome and scary. Exactly what I wanted. This is a must read! "

    " Brilliant still after all these years. Robert Louis Stevenson's ripping yarn about rum soaked pirates, stolen maps, hidden treasure and the adventurous life of one Jim Hawkins never fails to entertain. Truly lives up to the title of a classic of it's time. "

    " I have enjoyed this book since high school. The complex and dangerous John Silver who is bigger than life. It is not the most wonderful book ever but it is a fun read and a nice trip out of reality. "

    " Just a good, classic adventure. Nothing outstanding, just simple and fun. "
