The title of this book is Treasure Island. It is written by Robert Lewis
Stevenson and takes place mainly on Treasure Island. There were many characters
in this story but the most substantial were; Jim Hawkins the cabin boy/narrator;
Long John Silver the captain; David Livesey the ships doctor; Pew the
blind-beggar; and John Trelawney the owner of the ship. After the Captain had
died from an overdose of Rum, Dr. Livesey looked through the Captains coat
and there he found a book. Later Dr. Livesey, Jim, and the squire looked through
the book the doctor had found, the doctor opened the seals with great care, and
there fell out the map of an island. It had the latitude and longitude,
soundings, names of hills, bays, and inlets, and every detail that would be
needed to bring a ship to a safe anchorage upon the island. “In three weeks
time Hawkins shall come as cabin boy. You, Livesey, are ship’s doctor; I am
admiral.” The ship was already bought and fitted. It lied at anchor, ready for
sea. The two hundred-ton ship was named Hispaniola. They were ready to go
treasure hunting. Well since they didnt have a Captain they had to find
someone they knew was an experienced sailor-man, and above all, they could
trust. So they told Jim where he could find a man of that caliber by the name of
Long John Silver. When Jim reached his destination he looked around and found
some one that he thought met the description of a sailor. He went up to the man
and said, “Long John”? The man replied. It happened to be the person Jim was
looking for. So Jim told him the plan about the treasure hunt. Long John
wasnt too thrilled about the idea of treasure hunting (since he had had bad
experiences treasure hunting), but he agreed to it any ways. The voyage was long
but the crew proved them selfs worthy. As they steadily approached the island
Jim was feeling sick, he said to himself “perhaps it was the look of the
island with its gray, melancholy woods, and wild stone spires, and the surf that
I could see and hear foaming and thundering on the steep beach. Although the sun
shone bright and hot, and the shore birds were fishing and crying all around
them, you would have thought anyone would have been glad to get to land after
being so long at sea, Jims heart sank, as the saying is, into my boots; and
from the first look onward, he hated the very thought of Treasure Island. “
“Out, lads, out, and fight ’em in the open! Cutlasses!” cried the
captain. “Round the house, lads! Round the house!” cried the captain.

“And yet, in this breath of time, the fight was over and the victory was
ours.” These words were spoken during the brutal fight between the pirates and
the crew of the Hispaniola while on the island. The climax was when the crew
aboard the Hispaniola finally found the treasure in a secluded location as the
map had stated. In the treasure there were many different things such as.

English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Georges, and Louises, doubloons and double
guineas and moidores and sequins, the pictures of all the kings of Europe for
the last hundred years. Strange Oriental pieces stamped with what looked like
wisps of string or bits of spider’s web. Round pieces and square pieces, and
pieces bored through the middle, as if to wear them round your neck — nearly
every variety of money in the world must, I think, have found a place in that
collection. Well, to make a long story short, they got a few hands on board,
made a good cruise home, and the Hispaniola reached Bristol. Five men only of
those who had sailed returned with her. “Drink and the devil had done for
the rest.” All the men had a sufficient share of treasure. Nothing would
bring Jim back to that accursed island; and the worst dreams that hell ever
have are when he hears the surf booming about its coasts or start upright in his
bed with the sharp voice of Captain Flint still ringing in his ears:
“Pieces of eight! Pieces of eight!” This book, I think, is the worst
book I have ever read. I could barely understand the writing. It was extremely
dull. I came to the point to where I nearly stopped reading the book entirely. I
would not recommend this book to any peer for the reasons stated above.
