I have a massive problem with this book. It’s one I’m a little embarrassed to admit. The problem is not with the writing or the characters that Stevenson has created; it’s not even with the plot. The problem resides with Kermit the Frog. (Stay with me here!) I grew up watching the muppets. I became slightly obsessed with them. I kind of wanted to join them. So, whenever I read about Captain Smollett and Long ...more
This is the iconic novel about pirates that it stands as the best example in this topic and easily one of the most adapted to other media novels in any genre.
I can remember having watched several adaptations, live action films, animated movies, even an animated film using animals as the characters, there is the Muppets' one, a Japanese anime TV series, an European mini-series taking the story to outer space starring Anthony Quinn, the animated remake of that versio ...more

1) There are a ton of tropes! We understand that this is pretty much what Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean ripped off, making tons of money off of this adventurous classic, including but not limited to: rampant alcoholism; a code of honor; castaways (at sea or in land); shipwrecks (new and ancient); treason (group and individual) & double crosses; mutiny, hostages, captures and shocking escapes; strangers appearing from ...more
كان بورخيس يعد ستيفنسون أحد كتابه المفضلين، وروبرت لويس ستيفنسون هو صاحب الروايتين المشهورتين جدا ً (جزيرة الكنز) و(الحالة الغريبة للدكتور جيكل والمستر هايد)، الرواية الأولى مشهورة جدا ً عربيا ً، ويعود ذلك إلى أن الرواية حولت على يد المخرج الياباني (أوسامو ديزاكي) إلى مسلسل رسومي مبهر بعنوان (Takarajima)، دبلج هذا المسلسل إلى اللغة العربية وعرض في الثمانينات، وكان أحد أجمل المسلسلات التي تابعتها في طفولتي، وأظن أنه أثر وأمتع جيل كامل قبل أن تفقد الأفلام الرسومية القصة والإنسان، وتصبح ...more
A young boy named Jim Hawkins got his hands on a map showing the location of a buried pirate treasure - by a pure accident. A group of people is ready to go on a treasure hunt, but their plans are about ...more
When you encounter a haggard and bedraggled fellow in the middle of an uninhabited island that you have sailed to to find treasure, and the fellow in question claims that he is rich, you could undoubtedly decide that you have succeeded in your mission. Claim the prize. Flee the scene. End of the story.
Alas, that is not how Robert Louis Stevenson envisaged the ending. At this point, you have more than two thirds of the book to finish. Yet you carry on as if you haven't a clue abo ...more
“Fifteen men on the dead man's chest—Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!”
This book started many well-known sayings, nods and tributes towards pirates and the sea life - the love pirates have of rum, Long John Silver, treasure maps with the X marking the spot, the bird on the shoulder of the pirate, some of the songs...it all had to start somewhere, and apparently Treasure Island hit the spot.
It's filled with well-rounded, enjoyable characters - Jim as the main, a mere child, was easy to en ...more

I really love pirates… even though I try to ignore the fact that they’re dirty, rapists, murderers, alcoholics, thieves… aaah many bad things but still, I like the concept so here I am reading this book. Since it’s summer I tend to go towards these stories. One of my wishes is to become a pirate for a determinate amount of time. I’d love to sail away for a while with Jack Sparrow… I know, who doesn’t love Jack Sparrow? *daydreams*
After reading… and reading… and reading some ...more

I didn't realise the movie Goonies was so heavily influenced by Treasure Island....I loved that movie. The adventure, the danger, the pirates, the rich stuff, Chunk.....it was brilliant.

I came to first of Treasure Island from a Mickey Mouse story, with Mickey in the role of Jim Hawkins, Captain Hook in the role of Long John Silver, Gyro Gearloose in the role of the doctor and Goofy in the role of Ben Gunn. At that time, I never knew this novel existed! Later on, after I had read the original and loved it, I ha ...more

Shiver me timbers! I wonder what Robert Louis Stevenson would think of Captain Jack Sparrow? Because a lot of Jack Sparrow’s DNA can be found in Treasure Island. I choose to think that Stevenson would be delighted by how influential his book had been.
This is a book that I never was interested in as a kid—pirates just didn’t appeal to me, I guess. But I was missing a pretty good yarn and I’m glad I was finally inspired to read it as an adult. ...more
