    " Alfred Molina as narrator? Great idea! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alija | 1/29/2014

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 1/27/2014

    " I should have read this book years ago. I feel like it is one of those books where the back cover summary doesn't quite reveal what actually happens and the reader thinks the book will go in another direction entirely. Anyone could have written this book, but not with the same voice or skill as Stevenson. I will be reading other books by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginelle | 1/24/2014

    " A great young adventure story where some rather non-adventurous citizens come upon the map for an immense treasure buried on an island - Treasure Island. They come up with a ship and a more experienced crew and head off to recover the buried treasure; experiencing mutiny and loyalty, battle, and even losing the ship before the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 1/24/2014

    " I got sea sick reading about the sea. "

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

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brianna | 12/31/2013

    " Pretty good story. Have to be honest though, I like Treasure Planet more. I just love Joseph Gordon Levitt. He's so adorable! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darlene | 12/30/2013

    " read this to Tiana and Julie when they were children. as you are aware it is a classic. we enjoyed as have thousands of others over the years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard | 12/22/2013

    " Great book of adventure, pirates and sea life. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Juliana | 11/6/2013

    " The pirate talk was a bit tricky for me to decipher, but all in all, a fun book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Travis | 6/29/2013

    " Nice solid read. Just what you would expect from a classic. To think I never new that Long John Silver was more than just the name of a restaurant! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard Bush | 6/23/2013

    " Also in my personal top 10 books of all time. "

    " Still a classic. The pirate dialogue is harder to read than I remember though! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet Martin | 3/9/2013

    " Still the best pirate adventure ever written "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rob Davies | 3/2/2013

    " Expected more from a classic. I suppose the aged context needs to be considered but it is not a compelling read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Georgie Macdonald | 11/19/2012

    " good adventure book for younger readers:) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erica Ruth | 8/22/2012

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Courtney Lynn | 5/21/2012

    " It's a fast pace classic. what's not to like? "

    " Great story. This and Kidnapped I read as a child, and I then reread this a few years back. Dated writing style, but a clasic that keeps your interest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ali Werner | 11/18/2011

    " A young boy is on a venture to find treasure Island with pirates. "

    " A swashbuckling tail for boys! "

  • 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. "

  • 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 "

    " 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. "
