Please use this thread to discuss Chapters 17-24.

Bharathi (bharathi14) | 158 comments Thank you Renee for posting this. I had a several things going on, this being the start of a school year. I got to this late. But what fun I am having. This is a great adventure, and it is much more fun than Treasure Island.

Bharathi (bharathi14) | 158 comments There is a lot of ground covered and even if they are just fleeing, Stevenson makes the whole escape so thrilling. It is like watching a movie. I was literally egging David to keep moving.

Bharathi (bharathi14) | 158 comments People have tried to re-enact the whole adventure and have blogged about it. Here is the link
The entire route has been mapped. I love maps, and thus was just fantastic.

What a cool idea! Thank you for the link. I love that people do this!

Michaela | 192 comments That sounds interesting, thanks Bharathi!

I love the book, it´s exciting, and I also like the differences between David and Alan, till the fight at the end of this part.

I think David was a bit cowardly to not apologize to Alan, but take his illness as a pretext to find Alan´s forgiveness.
