Loved the book. The illustrations were good and really helped the story along. I enjoyed their punctuation throughout the book.

Format: Paperback
Overall, I really liked the story. Time and styles of writing have definitely changed, so it gets slow at times, but I didn't feel like it got uninteresting. If anything, I was disappointed that I was on a deadline (college project) and had to read quickly.

The issues I have concern the format of the print version. The book is printed on large paper (like the size you would put in your home printer), and the format suggests it was directly converted from the digital version. The cover is blurry, and the name of the book is not written on the spine, so it is difficult to spot on a shelf. Overall, the glossy oversized pages just didn't feel right for a classic book to me.

This worked well enough since I was a in a hurry, but I think I will purchase a nicer copy in the future. Would recommend the story, but not this edition.

When a foul-tempered old sailor, takes up residence at his parents’ inn, young Jim Hawkins little realizes that the man is on the run. But, when the Captain dies with a group of pirates closing in, Jim ends up with a map to a huge pirate treasure in his hands. Now, together with Dr. Livesey and Squire Trelawney, the three find themselves a ship, and set out to find this marvelous treasure island. But there’s dirty work afoot, and it will take all of Jim pluck and daring if he is going to win through to the treasure...or even just to stay alive!

Well, I have seen a number of movies based on this true classic of Western literature, but I have finally read the original story. As for me, I found it to be quite entertaining – filled with lots of danger and daring-do. I have read a lot of late 19th/early 20th century boy’s book, and this one is the king of the genre. No yucky romance, indeed, little in the way of females at all. It’s muscular fiction, of the sort that boys have read for many generations.

I must say that I really liked Mr. Stevenson’s portrayal of the pirate life – trying to maintain order and discipline amongst a violent and highly-individualized crew, and so forth. I found the book to be very realistic, and all the more entertaining for that.

This is a great book, one that has stood the test of time and truly deserves to be called a classic. I highly recommend this book to all boys, and all men who are boys at heart! (And, to all girls who like muscular fiction!)

Outstanding digital version of this book. I have downloaded other LCI books and now specifically look for their titles as they digitize the illustrations extremely well and the typography is equal to what you would get with a print novel. Formatting is very good when read on multiple platforms, I use an iPhone, iPad, and KindleFire HD.

If you haven't read any of R.L. Stevenson's work then this novel is a good way to start as it is just like reading a regular hard bound novel.

I bought this edition as a gift for my nephew, but I will be returning it. The size of the book itself is a bit awkward-- larger than a typical paperback novel. The interior seems to be a mere printing of an ebook format and the translation as such comes across sparse and strange as a bound book. It is not aesthetically pleasing. I will be purchasing a different edition as I do not want to hinder my nephew's immersion by giving him a clunky book.

I believe it was Shakespeare who wrote, "An old man is twice a child." In the past year (thanks in part to the availability of excellent e-publications on Kindle), I've re-read both Huckleberry Finn and Treasure Island. I found both books to be fine examples of children's literature from past times and recommend them for both children and those experiencing "childhood twice experienced."
