This review is from: Treasure Island (Kindle Edition)
When I was about nine years old we read 'Treasure Island' as a class (that was back in the days when children read whole books and not just selected 'scenes')and I can still recall the thrills that it gave me. The scene where Jim is forced to retreat up the mast by Israel Hands literally held me enthralled. I think it was the first time that I realised what a good story could do; the places it could take you to. I've read the book many times since and found something new to enjoy every time, Now it's on my Kindle forever. If you haven't read it I urge you to do so without delay. Forget Jack Sparrow and his ilk. Long John Silver is THE pirate.
