Robert Louis Stevenson - Treasure Island

Robert Louis Stevenson – Treasure Island


I picked this up thinking that back when I was a child, I’d tried to read it and I’d given up on it. It turns out I was wrong, because I’m pretty sure that I read the entire thing from cover to cover. Parts of the story kept coming back to me just before they happened, and not just because I used to love Muppet Treasure Island when I was a kid.

All in all, I thought the book was pretty good, even though it slowed down a little towards the end, and I do think it deserves its place in the history of literature. It’s not necessarily my favourite classic, but I’m glad that I’ve ticked it off and I can move on to something else. Something like Kidnapped, perhaps, which is also written by Stevenson and which I already own a copy of.

And in the meantime, I enjoyed little bits like when the doctor cut open someone’s vein to help them to recover after having a stroke. That gave it an extra, interesting edge as a modern reader. So yeah.
