Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela Joyce | 2/9/2014

    " I read this in a few hours because it was impossible to stop. What can I say? There's a reason it's a classic! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wynne Kontos | 2/9/2014

    " My first time reading this classic, and it was definitely a fun one. Jim Hawkins is living a normal life at his family's inn when an unusual stranger with a gruesome scar across his face comes to stay. So begins an incredible adventure, where Jim must come into his manhood amongst blood thirsty pirates and a fight for buried treasure. Even today, Stevenson's narration reads easy and fast, with action from the beginning to the end. It would've been nice to have a little more knowledge of boats (constant references to a ship's parts went over my head), but the Barnes and Noble classic version I read did a nice job of "translating" old slang and even seamen's references in the footnotes. Good read at the end of the summer! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maria Wheeler | 2/1/2014

    " 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 Kami Tilby | 1/31/2014

    " What a delight! Wondering why I haven't read this fun classic before now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Georgie Macdonald | 1/30/2014

    " good adventure book for younger readers:) "

    " I disliked it very much. Couldn't follow "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alija | 1/11/2014

    " Read this long ago as a child. It was an adventure back then and it's an adventure now. Great book for young people. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin Morris | 1/9/2014

    " Shiver me timbers... a good book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Piyush | 11/29/2013

    " A nice book with good story line. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucas | 11/24/2013

    " A bunch of pirates get drunk and stage mutiny. It's about as fun as it sounds! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy Moffett | 10/28/2013

    " 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! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Perla | 10/14/2013

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debby | 9/18/2013

    " Why Oh Why Did I ever think I needed to finish this? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 8/21/2013

    " Just re-read this for the third or fourth time, and it's still as good as I remember. What was surprising to me was how much of the story I'd forgotten - it was almost like I was reading it for the first time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacey Allen | 5/17/2013

    " Easy to see why this is a classic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alicia Hicks | 4/20/2013

    " Just as I remembered it. As I read, my mind kept drifting back to the 1990 Treasure Island with Heston and Bale "

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

    " This book was the father of all pirate-stories since. Remarkably well-written, fun and lovable antagonist, and exciting adventure. In short, a childhood delight. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Author234 Deadly13 | 3/2/2013

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kindra | 7/19/2012

    " I'm not a big fan of fantasy but, wow, I loved it and was intrigued until the very end. What experiences for a young boy! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cassandra | 6/9/2012

    " Treasure Island is an enjoyable read but not the best of it's class. It does have all the necessary pirate conventions, however, so shiver me timbers Mate, and give it a try!! Fifteen men on a dead man's chest Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of rum!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin Hobb | 5/6/2012

    " Younger readers may be put off by the older style of this book and the leisurely way in which it begins. It's worth a read. Pirates, treasure maps, friendships, treachery, and peculiar old hermits. What more could you ask of a book? Oh, and yes, Long John Silver! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abbey | 2/23/2012

    " This was an historical fiction that was very interesting to read. it was about a boy that was filling his life long dream of being on the ship with Columbus. This would be a good book to use in the classroom to show students how life on the ship was like "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Abby | 11/20/2011

    " Interesting as a first person account. Kind of felt rushed at the end, though it is the oldest book I've read in which the author gives a bit of information about what happens to the characters after the story ends. I like this in movies, and it was fun to find it in this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Whitty | 10/26/2011

    " Very creative, keeps you interested!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea Schlimgen | 10/5/2011

    " I just re-read this since my 4th grade class is reading it. Lots of action, great classic. It was fun to see my reluctant readers get interested in the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill | 8/29/2011

    " You can flip to any page of this poetic book, start reading, and within a sentence or two it has you hooked and fully immersed. Iconic characters, like a myth. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alex Dissing | 6/8/2011

    " Another "classic" that I will soon forget. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacqui | 5/25/2011

    " This is such a cool read! Pretty exciting stuff! OK sometimes the old school english and pirate speak are hard to understand but that's part of the fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ivan | 5/24/2011

    " Very good adventure book that everyone should read. The conflict between the pirate and the lawman arise. I for one am a lawman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Namiko | 5/24/2011

    " This is a different book than the previous book I've just read. This included more detailed expressions. "

  • 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. "
