I read this book when I was very young and the memory of it has lingered for ages. It has a very unique feeling in it - you really feel like you're THERE. It's quite amazing and fascinating. But I only gave it three stars because it is a bit of a 'dry' read - great for young boys and adventurous girls. There are no girls in it, by the way, unless you count Jim's mother in the beginning. But I really enjoyed this book. Very interesting and realisic feeling. It's about a young boy who goes off to see with Captain Silver on an adventure searching for treasure. It has a real piratey feeling to it, which is something I like alot. There have been several movie versions made but I enjoy the mid'90's one starring Christian Bale and Charlton Heston. It's the closest to the book that I know of.
