Treasure Island | Robert Louis Stevenson

Pickpick

This was my #BookSpin for May, and another classic checked off the list!! Despite genuinely loving the Muppet version of this story, I had never read the original. It was a lot of fun, even if completely implausible, and I can see why it kept young lads in 1883 glued to the pages! Personally, I like the Muppets better - Stevenson's version is sadly lacking in catchy musical numbers. Still a fun read!!

This edition includes The Ebb-Tide, which I⬇️

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) haven't read yet. Another tale for another time, as I do enjoy Stevenson's writing a lot.

TheAromaofBooks @Liatrek @5feet.of.fury - Even though the Muppet version didn't follow the story 100%, they definitely did a fabulous job capturing the essence of the plot and characters. I'm definitely due for a rewatch now that I finished reading the original!!! 1w
TheAromaofBooks @Clwojick - I'm kind of in love with collecting these Penguin editions when it's a classic that I don't own yet but am ready to add to my library. The covers are such fun, the spines are fabulous, and they're those “flopping“ paperbacks that stay open really well when you're reading them! 1w

Oxen and wain-ropes would not bring me back again to that accursed island; and the worst dreams that ever I have are when I hear the surf booming about its coasts, or start upright in bed, with the sharp voice of Captain Flint still ringing in my ears: ‘Pieces of eight! pieces of eight!'

"??-??-?? ??? ? ?????? ?? ???." ??‍☠️

I guess there's a reason why people are still reading this novel 140 years after it was written, it's a real treasure.

This is the first book I've read by fellow Scot, Robert Louis Stevenson and it won't be my last.

I'm already looking forward to checking out "Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde"

In the meantime, I'm really looking forward to watching "Muppet Treasure Island" with the kids. ?

KCofKaysville @TheNeverEndingTBR My three daughters always liked that movie too. 3mo

This was a fun adventure tale, with bloodthirsty pirates, buried treasure, and a heroic boy narrating most of it. Long John Silver is a kind of terrifying villain, charismatic and brutal by turns. Squire Trelawney is an idiot and responsible for hiring a crew of pirates who try to kill him and his compatriots. #roll100 #5 @PuddleJumper

julesG @RaeLovesToRead I know what's fore and aft, the poopdeck, and how to pronounce 'forecastle' properly. The rest is just technical terms I skim past. I tried reading Master and Commander (don't ask, no idea why). I know I enjoy descriptions of spaceships more, but from time to time I need to step outside my comfort zone. 😉 4mo

🎧📚 Jim Hawkins is an innkeeper who meets an old sailor Who dies mysteriously. Jim finds a treasure map and all sorts of tomfoolery ensues when he finds buried TREASURE!!

Treachery! Murder! Mutiny! Castaways!

And at the center of everything is the baddest evilest pirate ever to sail the high seas, Long John Silver!! So bad they named a chain of fast food fish restaurants after him! He‘ll stop at nothing to get that booty!

⭐️⭐️⭐️3/4 👇🏻

Twainy The book was a little dry but it‘s a classic for good reason!! It made peg legs, yo ho ho and a bottle of rum & X marks the spot part of pop culture!! … … … … … … … … … I‘m still uploading reviews from June … just a couple more. Sorry. 11mo

Another Middle Grade book AND a classic! “Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of rum!” A classic pirate tale and an Audie award winner. I liked this version a lot especially Jim Hawkins. His mother was great, too. I can imagine myself on an adventure like that with my son. Long John Silver was portrayed well, too. #100YEARS100BOOKS #BookSpinBingo #1 #BFC21 #MGMarch #MarvellousMarch

An adventure novel by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, it is a classic tale of "buccaneers and buried gold". First published as a book on 14 November 1883 by Cassell & Co., it was originally serialized in the children's magazine Young Folks between 1881 and 1882. The dialogue was trite and at times repetitive
#bookspinbingo @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks You should definitely watch the Muppets version instead. Very true to the original (somehow) and absolutely hilarious. 2y
Eggs @TheAromaofBooks Didn‘t know there‘s a Muppets version😃 2y
SaunteringVaguelyDownwards Seconding the Muppet version as a fun movie adaptation-Tim Curry is an excellent Long John Silver. And the series Black Sails on Hulu is a great 'prequel', albeit very adult. 2y

I needed to squeeze one more book in this year to make my reading challenge. So I thought I would give Treasure Island a go, unfortunately it was an abridged version. I will definitely need to go back and read the full version. This was quite a good listen. I can imagine the full version would be a swashbuckling suspenseful tale.

Aimeesue LibriVox has a really good free audio version read by Adrian Praetzellis. Version 2. (edited) 2y

Treasure Island by Robert Stevenson was written in 1881. I really enjoyed reading this book. I remember watching a movie like this when I was younger and reading the book made my love for the story even better. This book is definitely meant for older kids to read but is an amazing fun story to read and is perfect for anyone who likes reading about adventure.

"Three years!" I cried. "Were you shipwrecked?"
"Nay, mate," said he; "#marooned."
I had heard the word, and I knew it stood for a horrible kind of punishment common enough among the buccaneers, in which the offender is put ashore with a little powder and shot and left behind on some desolate and distant island. #QuotsyNov19
