PS: Any violence toward humans and animals that takes place in this novel is relegated to an imaginary world and was not tested on actual humans and animals. ;)
I wrote my final essay for my major on the display of animal treatment in Levine's novel, looking at the character of Richard (the mistreated parrot) as a point of view in the story.Read more ›
Recommended if you have a weird sense of humor.
Levine is both a brilliant comedian and an acute literary critic. Stevenson's 'Treasure Island' is a great adventure story but as disturbing, in its way, as 'The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,' filled with graphic violence and unacknowledged depths of Freudian family drama. Levine makes manifest 'Treasure Island''s latent content. The result is both thought-provoking and laugh-out-loud funny.

...And my opinion falls to the latter end of the dichotomous spectrum.
I'll start with the plusses. The narrative style is voicey and spunky. The humor often lands. Read more
