One day, a captain shows up at the "Admiral Benbow" inn, and he makes his home there. He is a private man, and a fierce one. Upon his death, the young Jim Hawkins finds himself in possession of a treasure map. Then he is off, sailing across the ocean for the island. However, things take a dangerous turn when Jim overhears a nefarious plot, and finds himself in danger from pirates. Trapped on an island, will he and his friends survive? And who will end up with the buried treasure?

I loved this boo

No por nada tiene la fama que tiene!

Es un libro de una aventura de piratas, bribones, aventuras, engaños, muerte, motines, etc. Es una historia que te atrapa, que necesitas saber qué va a pasar después.
Sus personajes son muuuy buenos y variados, y la forma en que esta escrita es muy fácil de entender, tiene 6 partes y 34 capítulos que se leen bastante fácil.
En fin, una historia increíble donde el suspenso, la aventura y el mar son los protagonistas.

Classic story of pirates hunting for buried treasure on a deserted island. Takes place in the mid 1700s. The language is hard to understand sometimes, but the basic storyline is great, and includes the usual suspects: Long John Silver, the parrot squawking incessantly, "Pieces of eight!", drunken sailors . . .

-Marcando unos compases éticos para su tipo de propuesta que siguen perdurando hoy en día.-

Género. Novela.

Lo que nos cuenta. Jim es un muchacho que trabaja en la posada de la familia, en la que debe tomar un papel más protagónico a la muerte de su padre. Uno de sus huéspedes, el marinero inquietante y bebedor Billy Bones, está preocupado por la posible visita de alguno de sus viejos amigos y promete a Jim una moneda de plata cada mes si está vigilante ante la llegada de un marinero con una sola

Shelves: adventure
Thought Treasure Island to be the better of the two tales, but also the more simple and straightforward. Neither measure up to The Strange Case of Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde, but both were enjoyable in their own right.

This is the first book I remember reading because of wanting to. I even owned it on a lp album and wore the record player out. I will read it again maybe parts of my childhood dreams will return.

I forgot how good this story was. I had a visual copy of this book as a kid. The story transported me to another time and place like all good stories do. There were times I was sitting at Cafe Ventana reading this book I actually laughed out loud at a witty line. I recommend this book to all!
