Review: Treasure Island

Treasure IslandBook Review
4 out of 5 stars to Treasure Island, a coming-of-age-of-sort novel, written in 1882 by Robert Louis Stevenson. I read this book as a young adult when I received it as a Christmas present from an aunt and uncle. At first, although I knew it was a classic, I wasn’t too anxious to jump into it. I wasn’t a big fan of pirates and boats. I wasn’t a normal kid, what can I tell you. But… it was a gift and I thought I should give it a chance. And once I did, I loved it. I had read Peter Pan recently and felt a kismet connection of sorts between them. From the adventures to the bonds, to the test of good versus evil, the book had so many wonderful moments. And since then, I’ve sampled many different iterations, from movies to other books with pirate stories, all the way to Once Upon a Times interpretation. It’s truly a remarkable story that helps young adults figure out how to approach a world full of fears, hopes and questions. And to think it’s a pirate and a cook who help you to figure some of it out. But it’s more. There’s bonding. And team work. And treasure hunting. And challenges. And mystery. All culminating in reaching one’s goals in ways you didn’t necessarily expect.
