Masterfully crafted, "Treasure Island" is a stunning yarn of piracy on the fiery tropic seas -- an unforgettable tale of treachery that embroils a host of legendary swashbucklers, from honest young Jim Hawkins to sinister, two-timing Israel Hands, to evil incarnate, blind Pew. But above all, "Treasure Island" is a complex study of good and evil, as embodied by that hero-villain, Long John Silver: the merry unscrupulous buccaneer-rogue whose greedy quest for gold cannot help but win the heart of every soul who ever longed for romance, treasure, and adventure. Since its publication in 1883, "Treasure Island" has provided an enduring literary model for such eminent writers as Anthony Hope, Graham Greene, and Jorge Luis Borges. As David Daiches wrote: "Robert Louis Stevenson transformed the Victorian boys' adventure into a classic of its kind."

“Fantastic!”

Originally I bought this book expressly because I enjoy the artwork of Stanley Donwood. I fell in love with the cover, and now I use Waterstones website frequently (I'm American, never heard of it before).

“Swashbuckling adventure.”

This book deserves to be the classic it is. A great adventure book for young readers, with a courageous young hero - even though there's quite a bit of violence. The narratives written by the doctor and the... More
