Hey there! The first book review of the day is composed by Haylee G., age 14. She shares her honest opinion on an American classic, Treasure Island.
Treasure Island is a book written by Robert Louis Stevenson. Jim Hawkins is an innkeeper along side of his mother, at the Admiral Benow, keeping watch of “seafaring men”. Billy Bones, who once was a sailor, stays at the inn and drinks way too much rum. Billy is terrified of the seafaring men. Billy has a second stroke, when he gets another visit from another man, but this time it’s fatal. Mr. Trelawny, who is a squire, agreed with Dr. Livesey that the many papers that Jim had could lead them to Billy’s hidden treasures. Although, the journey was long and difficult, the search for the treasure was successful, but not too successful. In my opinion I recommend this book to ages 10 and up. This book consists a lot of disturbing and vivid imagery. Therefore, if the reader is interested in pirates and adventure, I recommended this book. I personally am not interested in pirates, but I do think that this novel was very interesting.
