“Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
The pirate genre is flooded with movies, books, and TV shows. According to Wikipedia, ““There have been over 50 film and TV adaptations of Treasure Island.”” I wanted to go back to the source of these pirate stories and see where many of these pirate conventions came from: the treasure map with an X on it, the black spot, and one-legged pirates with parrots on their shoulders.
This was much more kid friendly than I thought it would be. There is lots of action, but not the blood and guts type. There is intrigue, and plotting but not too much shooting. Despite watching many pirate shows, I was not that familiar with the plot of the Treasure Island, though I was familiar with many elements of the story.
I read this as an ePub I got from Project Gutenberg. It has beautiful images from the book in it too. I love books with illustrations!
I encourage you to visit Project Gutenberg and discover a classic novel you’ve heard about, but never read. It’s free so you have nothing to lose.
