I loved everything about this book. It was so powerful and even though it was written decades ago I felt like it was speaking about current events. Definitely recommend it to everyone.

Treasure Island | Robert Louis Stevenson

When reading this I had to keep reminding myself that this story started it all in terms of pirate stories. It was incredibly difficult to read out loud but fun to try speak pirate. And without a good understanding of the workings of a ship I'm not sure how you would be able to follow good portions of the book. I know it's a classic but other than being a first I'm not sure how it got to be one.

JazzFeathers Whaaaat???? When l read it, l absolutely loved it. Thought it's incredibly modern and has all the characteristics of the classic. But then, l love Stevenson 😉 3y
Qemorio @JazzFeathers this is one thing I love about books, lol. How different people have such different experiences reading them! 3y

Qemorio @Suzze I really liked it. It's all written in poem form which I thought would be weird but lends itself well to this story. 3y

This is by far the best audiobook we have listened to in a long time. I recommend listening to it as an audiobook the production is incredibly well done.

I enjoyed this quick read, I liked the characters and the magical elements of the story but the world is a bit flimsy. I was left with so many questions I would have a hard time recommending it to a kid I cared about.

Bette That's too bad, our copy just came in to the library. The cover looks so inviting. 3y
