(Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography [cclapcenter.com]. I am the original author of this essay, as well as the owner of CCLaP; it is not being reprinted illegally.)

Regular readers will remember what an unexpected fan I became of Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island, back when I first read it a few years ago as part of the "CCLaP 100" essay series on literary classics; and with this being a Victorian-Age public-domain work, there are of course dozens of unofficial

It's "Pirates, Pirates, Pirates" All the Way Down

Of all of the Boys Own adventure classics available to modern younger readers, in my mind the books of Robert Louis Stevenson continue to be the most accessible, engrossing and entertaining. For those who favor the piratical side of the ledger "Treasure Island" remains a stirring read. For those less interested in gentlemen of fortune but still keen on skulking and adventuring there is "Kidnapped".

"Kidnapped" has a sequel penned by Stevenson, "Bal

Ahoy, me Hearties!! Step aboard the majestic timbers of the Hispaniola once again as our handsome narrator, Jim Hawkins, tells the tale of his return to that most devilish of places, Treasure Island. Frank Delaney has rendered all us landlubbers a most agreeable story!

After narrowly escaping capture by a gang of roguish brutes and intrigued by a mysterious woman, Jim sets sail for a return trip to the terrible island. Along the way familiar characters appear, such as the charming and cunning pir

Ever read TREASURE ISLAND or see one of the flicks based on the book? Even if you didn't and want just a cool adventure tale with a lot of action then jump on this one.

JIm Hawkins was a kid in the first book, is now 25. He's working in his family's tavern when one day a woman and her boy come riding up to find him chased by some crazy guy who seems to want to kill her.

Jim grabs the guy, he falls off his horse and dies. Soon more men arrive - the crazy guy is actually a nobleman, known to the kin

A pretty impressive sequel to RL Stevenson's "Treasure Island". I believe Delaney holds true to Stevenson's characters, even if not quite so with the use of language. However, for a sequel written by a different author over 100 years later, there are enough similarities that both novels could pass as written by the same author.

"Curse of Treasure Island" follows Stevenson's character Jim Hawkin's return to Treasure Island 10 years after the original voyage. The book is full of what made the origi

Shelves: fun, general-fiction
Normally I think classics should be left alone, and that it is presumption for a modern author to write a sequel to one. Terrible things have been done, for example, to "Gone With the Wind" and "Les Miserables", to name but two. However, I read the original "Treasure Island" right before tackling Mr. Delaney's sequel, and it works. It really does. I could hear the voices of both Robert Louis Stevenson AND Frank Delaney, and these are voices I happen to like. I imagined them sitting next to each ...more
