Description

An Apple Books Classic edition.

When Billy Bones first walks into Jim Hawkins’ family-run inn, the prevailing sentiments are fear…and curiosity about what’s in his oversized chest. After a band of rogue pirates comes looking for him, Billy dies, leaving Jim and his mother in possession of his belongings, which contain a map leading to the treasure of the dreaded Captain Flint.

Robert Louis Stevenson’s swashbuckling adventure story plays out on the high seas-and it’s packed to the gills with heart-pounding suspense, double crosses, mutiny, mayhem, and even murder. First published as a magazine serial in the 1880s, Treasure Island set the standard for action-adventure thrillers. Hop in and prepare for a wild ride, complete with peg-legged pirates and their trusted parrots, casks of rum, tropical islands, and X marks the spot!

    An exceptional work of fiction. The very story that has kindled the love and lore of pirates for generations still has the air of adventure on the high seas after so many years. A must read for any human being on planet earth.

    Good book, however it can be challenging the part where the narration moves through multiple characters. Still a great read!

    This book is gripping. I’ve read it twice and listened to the audiobook at least twice. It’s written in such a way that, in reading, you feel you ARE Jim Hawkins. I can smell the salt. Enjoy!
  • Amazing book! A perfect classic!
