Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 2/20/2014

    " A fun historical sea romp, especially as an audiobook with all the "Shiver me timbers" and "arrgghh" piratey vocalizations performed to perfection by David Case. Now, on to "Silver," the recently-written followup that occurs 20 years following the original 1883 story. Heigh ho, mateys! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe Phelan | 2/16/2014

    " I read this in school and like the concept. Some parts seemed slow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teri Moote | 1/31/2014

    " A classic pirate tale. As good as I remembered it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Skye | 1/29/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nolena | 1/25/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Piyush | 1/22/2014

    " A nice book with good story line. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meghan | 1/17/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lamai Lamai | 1/14/2014

    " Read it ten years ago , but I love to have it on my shelf ( as it reminds me reading with my son, soo nice) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob Cohen | 1/11/2014

    " I really had a good time with this. It sure helped that I am familiar with a dew of the adaptations so the charicatures were so clear to me. But interesting to see the dramatic license taken in some plot points. A little bit more gruesome and violent in the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Capnniknak | 1/10/2014

    " Classic pirate adventure. Read it. Now "

    " A swashbuckling tail for boys! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicolas | 12/31/2013

    " A young boy finds a treasure map from an old sailor living in his hotel and sets out with a group of men to find the treasure. When they reach the island it turns out that a lot of the men are pirates and that they made the rest of the crew on a mutiny so they could get the treasure for themselves. It is a race against time to get treasure and get away from the pirates. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marieke | 12/29/2013

    " Definitely a boy's adventure book.. not my thing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leann Hastings | 12/24/2013

    " A great classic with the bad guy you love and hate. Very good at keeping interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jjlupa | 12/18/2013

    " Kinda hard to read, but I give it 4 stars because I love Silver SO MUCH. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rafael Medina loaiza | 12/16/2013

    " De mis favoritos altamente recomendable "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria Ainsley | 12/12/2013

    " Was visiting the islands of Thailand so it seemed appropriate. It was even more exciting than I remembered from reading as a child. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elise | 11/28/2013

    " Thoroughly enjoyed this book start to finish. It was a quick, page-turner. Interesting to read so many common phrases from their original source. I'd rec this to anyone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet Martin | 11/17/2013

    " Still the best pirate adventure ever written "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vanessa | 10/20/2013

    " Read for a Leuschner class. It was okay. Students enjoy reading the short chapters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim Petersik | 10/6/2013

    " Who can resist adventure. This is a great story, even for the adult reader. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Florin Pitea | 9/11/2013

    " Read it back in junior high school, loved it, re-read it several times. I'm planning to read the original version this year, as well. A masterpiece and a true classic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lissettegomezarevalo | 8/19/2013

    " I had never read this book, and recently decided to pick it up. Absolutely loved it! Wished I would have read it when I was younger. There are so many references to this book, i.e., characters, events, sayings. I hope I can convince my boys to read it, they would love it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carla Guzzardo | 8/16/2013

    " A classic of escapist literature! I love the use of language to really draw you in to the story. Great weekend read to get out of your head for a little bit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucer131 | 7/19/2013

    " I read this in grade school. The story grabs you and holds you from beginning to end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tom Foreman | 7/17/2013

    " 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... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 5/12/2013

    " I find it interesting that this is the story Stevenson is most known for. It's not my favourite by any means and I think "Black Arrow" and "David Balfour" would so much better on screen. Having said that there is no denying this is a classic that has shaped most of our ideas about pirates. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhys | 4/13/2013

    " Just a ripping good yarn "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 4/6/2013

    " This was one of the first books I ever read just for fun. I loved it then and had such fond memories I read it again. I still love it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 3/5/2013

    " I loooooooooooove this book! And I think anyone who wants to write a book, should come to Treasure Island first to see how it's done! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy Moffett | 2/22/2013

    " 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 Tim Dundorf | 12/12/2012

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chantal Barlow | 11/26/2012

    " Written really well, just not my favorite kind of story... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Glimmerofhope | 11/4/2012

    " The beginning was not very engaging, but I plodded along. The 2nd half of the book improved significantly as the characters developed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie Powell | 10/3/2012

    " Wonderful story from my youth. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Justin | 9/18/2012

    " A lot of fun. I can see how it set the tone for the pirate genre that came after it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara Wade Rose | 9/12/2012

    " This must be the inspiration for Pirates of the Caribbean -- the ride, if not the movies. The narrative is at an older child's level but the story still compels. Aar! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Whitty | 7/19/2012

    " Very creative, keeps you interested!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff | 7/6/2012

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron Kuehn | 6/7/2012

    " Can't believe I didn't read this childhood classic until middle-age. What a great adventure story it is! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian Murphy | 4/26/2012

    " One of my favorite reads from childhood, and one that helped instill a life-long love of reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 3/22/2012

    " I loooooooooooove this book! And I think anyone who wants to write a book, should come to Treasure Island first to see how it's done! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lawrence | 1/1/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hristina Ivanova | 12/15/2011

    " It was a brief read,but I really liked it. Maybe,if I'd read it when I was younger,I'd be far more exited,but all in all- it was good. I think younger readers will enjoy it very much :):) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Author234 Deadly13 | 8/15/2011

    " Liked it, but thought it could have been better "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jackie | 8/15/2011

    " It wasn't the worst book I've read but entirely predictable and unrealistic. Granted, fiction novels are typically predictable, this one just became a bore. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 6/1/2011

    " Fun little story says I, but don't make me walk the plank when I confess that this classic was the tiniest bit boring. Not near enough swashbuckle, and holy abrupt ending :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Namiko | 5/23/2011

    " I had never read this story even it is very famous. I realized that this story affects many people. That reminds me of "One piece," and "The pirates of Caribbean." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 5/21/2011

    " An enduring classic for very good reasons! It was well worth reading again 50 years later. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nathan | 5/20/2011

    " The grandfather of all pirate books. While this book has been adapted many times, it still is an enjoyable read and has everything you want in a good pirate story and is the originator of much of pirate lore. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 5/18/2011

    " What a great ride. Too bad it took me 42 years to get to this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marlene | 5/18/2011

    " Liked it before, liked it again. Fast and easy read that spun me back into my childhood. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 5/16/2011

    " Swashbuckling and fun. I can't wait to read this out loud to my first boy, or first pirate-loving daughter. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 5/16/2011

    " Better late than never I suppose. While searching the library bookshelf for Bram Stoker's Dracula, I came across this instead. Though it is meant to be enjoyed by those around age ten, I found it exciting from start to finish. I'll put it on my list of things to read to my kids at bedtime. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caryn | 5/13/2011

    " A great summer read - it always makes me wish I was going on an adventure. The language is sometimes a little hard to understand, but once you get the lingo it's even more fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 5/12/2011

    " The perfect real deal pirate tale for any age. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 McKenna | 5/11/2011

    " A great book. Some of the vocabulary confuses me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bunga Mawar | 5/10/2011

    " Mau komen iseng dulu ah, tentang gambar sampulnya. Jim Hawkins-nya terlalu cantik, dan si Long John Silver kurang tampan.

    Atau jangan2 saya keliru mengenali tokoh? :p "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Holli | 5/10/2011

    " A fine little book of maritime adventure, Treasure Island is a book I felt I needed to read. I liked the writing and the narration was superb. A charming little listen. "

About the Author
Author Robert Louis Stevenson

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894) was born in Scotland. He studied engineering and law at the University of Edinburgh and then began writing while traveling in France. The publication of Treasure Island in 1883 brought him fame and entered him on a course of romantic fiction beloved by young and old alike.
