The title of my book is Treasure Island and the author of this book is Robert Louis Stevenson. This book is 232 pages long. The setting of this book is in Bristol, England during winter. Treasure Island is where most of the action of this exciting book takes place.
My main characters and sailors are Jim Hawkins, Long John Silver, Ben Gunn, Dr. Livesey, and Captain Smollett. The character I liked more is Jim, because I think this because I can relate to him in his toughness and how he is always trying to find a solution for problems. I also feel the same way as he did, when his mother died and he stayed with the inn. Whenever my parents do something that has cost them a lot of effort I feel that I should take really good care for whatever they did because it cost them lots of efforts.
The problem in this story is that Jim and his friends had to get out of the island before they get captured by the pirates. Dr. Livesey found the treasure and then gave the map to Long John Silver. After that he set a trap to the crew of Long John Silver. When Jim, Ben Gunn, Long John Silver, and Dr. Livesey finally escape the island, they left three pirates that were still alive. The doctor left them medicine and food for them to survive. On there way back home they stopped in an island, and when they got back on the ship Long John Silver wasn’t there any more. Not only he was missing, but he had taken a few sacks of coins, and gold with him. The guys didn’t have any problems heading back. They all did different kinds of things with there money and lived how ever they wanted. Jim’s mother died and Jim stayed with the inn, and ended selling it to an English man.
I liked this book because it always had me thinking about different things. If I were to rate this book in a scale from one to ten, I would give it a ten. I don’t think there has to be any modifications in this book. I certainly would think that my cousin Sergio would like this book since he likes books about fighting and all sorts of violence. This is a great book, and I learned that you need to take some courage in whatever it is that you do. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0866119582, Library Binding)

Climb aboard for the swashbuckling adventure of a lifetime. Treasure Islandhas enthralled (and caused slight seasickness) for decades. The names Long John Silver and Jim Hawkins are destined to remain pieces of folklore for as long as children want to read Robert Louis Stevenson's most famous book. With it's dastardly plot and motley crew of rogues and villains, it seems unlikely that children will ever say no to this timeless classic. --Naomi Gesinger

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:06:32 -0400)

While going through the possessions of a deceased guest who owed them money, the mistress of the inn and her son find a treasure map that leads to a pirate fortune as well as great danger.
