This is a very good book and it was very inspiring to do what you think and not to follow what others say.

It's a beloved story that I have heard over and over again. The book is difficult to read.

I know this is a classic book that has won the heart of many, but I personally didn't enjoy it. I found it very difficult to read (the author's style, while consistent, wasn't compelling) and the characters fell flat for me. Maybe it's because I've passed the age this novel was designed for but I won't be picking it up again.

An excellent book that I have ever read!

This is a classic adventure tale, told in a classic way. The writing is superb, and the plot is thrilling. I can't believe I never read this as a kid!

I absoultley LOVED this book!!!
Ever since I was a Pirates of the Caribbean fan to the heart, beginnning at the age of 5, I was always wondering what the Treasure Island story would compare to my view of pirates. I finally had the chance to read it, and I was memorised by the many cliffhangers and suspense it had, really showing how timeless this old classic is.
