Yikes! I’ve been pretty busy with editing my own book, and totally forgot to schedule September’s blog post. It’s been crazy, but…here it is.
This classic is one of my all time favorites too!
Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson is perhaps better known for his other famous work: Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde. Treasure Island, however is one of his classic tale of treasure hunting and pirates, way before Pirates of Carribean.
I read this book when I was a young adult, and then later actually read Stevenson’s biography in college. He seemed so lost with writer’s block, until he came across a story idea from a map his stepson drew for him.
Treasure Island is an interesting story told through a teenager by the name of Jim Hawkins. It’s not just a story about pirates, but a fascinating and adventurous story that is filled with many themes. Some of the them are: greed, deception, lies, bravery, endurance, and trust.
I hope you’ll pick up this classic and enjoy reading it!
