treasure island

The title of this book is Treasure Island. It is written by Robert LewisStevenson and takes place mainly on Treasure Island. There were many charactersin this story but the most substantial were; Jim Hawkins the cabin boy/narrator;Long John Silver the captain; David Livesey the ships doctor; Pew theblind-beggar; and John Trelawney the owner of the ship. After the Captain haddied from an overdose of Rum, Dr. Livesey looked through the Captains coatand there he found a book. Later Dr. Livesey, Jim, and the squire looked throughthe book the doctor had found, the doctor opened the seals with great care, andthere fell out the map of an island. It had the latitude and longitude,soundings, names of hills, bays, and inlets, and every detail that would beneeded to bring a ship to a safe anchorage upon the island. “In three weekstime Hawkins shall come as cabin boy. You, Livesey, are ship’s doctor; I amadmiral.” The ship was already bought and fitted. It lied at anchor, ready forsea. The two hundred-ton ship was named Hispaniola. They were ready to gotreasure hunting. Well since they didnt have a Captain they had to findsomeone they knew was an experienced sailor-man, and above all, they couldtrust. So they told Jim where he could find a man of that caliber by the name ofLong John Silver. When Jim reached his destination he looked around and foundsome one that he thought met the description of a sailor. He went up to the manand said, “Long John”? The man replied. It happened to be the person Jim waslooking for. So Jim told him the plan about the treasure hunt. Long Johnwasnt too thrilled about the idea of treasure hunting (since he had had badexperiences treasure hunting), but he agreed to it any ways. The voyage was longbut the crew proved them selfs worthy. As they steadily approached the islandJim was feeling sick, he said to himself “perhaps it was the look of theisland with its gray, melancholy woods, and wild stone spires, and the surf thatI could see and hear foaming and thundering on the steep beach. Although the sunshone bright and hot, and the shore birds were fishing and crying all aroundthem, you would have thought anyone would have been glad to get to land afterbeing so long at sea, Jims heart sank, as the saying is, into my boots; andfrom the first look onward, he hated the very thought of Treasure Island. “”Out, lads, out, and fight ’em in the open! Cutlasses!” cried thecaptain. “Round the house, lads! Round the house!” cried the captain.

“And yet, in this breath of time, the fight was over and the victory wasours.” These words were spoken during the brutal fight between the pirates andthe crew of the Hispaniola while on the island. The climax was when the crewaboard the Hispaniola finally found the treasure in a secluded location as themap had stated. In the treasure there were many different things such as.

English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Georges, and Louises, doubloons and doubleguineas and moidores and sequins, the pictures of all the kings of Europe forthe last hundred years. Strange Oriental pieces stamped with what looked likewisps of string or bits of spider’s web. Round pieces and square pieces, andpieces bored through the middle, as if to wear them round your neck — nearlyevery variety of money in the world must, I think, have found a place in thatcollection. Well, to make a long story short, they got a few hands on board,made a good cruise home, and the Hispaniola reached Bristol. Five men only ofthose who had sailed returned with her. “Drink and the devil had done forthe rest.” All the men had a sufficient share of treasure. Nothing wouldbring Jim back to that accursed island; and the worst dreams that hell everhave are when he hears the surf booming about its coasts or start upright in hisbed with the sharp voice of Captain Flint still ringing in his ears:”Pieces of eight! Pieces of eight!” This book, I think, is the worstbook I have ever read. I could barely understand the writing. It was extremelydull. I came to the point to where I nearly stopped reading the book entirely. Iwould not recommend this book to any peer for the reasons stated above.
