Treasure Island is a classic novel was written by Robert Louis Stevenson, a Scottish Novelist in the 18th century. Stevenson known for his notable work for Treasure Island, A Child Garden of Verses, Mr Hyde, Kidnapped and Strange Case of Dr Jekyll.

Treasure Island is a story of Jim Hawkins lived with his mother and father. his father runs an inn by the sea for sailors to stay. Billy Bones was staying at the inn but never paid his bill.

One day Jim father died and a man with one leg comes to visit Billy Bones and gives him a note but Billy died on the same day and Jim and his mother checks his trunk and get a map and a dairy.

Billy Bones has a secret and he was running from other’s who all are after that secret that secret was a map for ‘Treasure Island’.

Jim and his mother ran away from the inn because of the firing. Policeman caught them and Jim wents to meet Squire and show him the map and the dairy. The map was of an Island where the treasure was hidden.

Squire makes a plan to get the treasure and took Jim with him. Jim met Long John on the ship which makes him suspicious and finally, Jim caught him planning to hijack the ship and they left the ship in another boat and Jim also jump on their boat. Soon they all landed on the Island. Jim met a man at the Island, who has left on Island three years ago and who took them to the Treasure and everyone shared the treasure.

Interesting story with little twist and turns and an adventure which will never be forgotten. The book will lead you through deaths, gun shots, theft and much more adventure in search of ‘Treasure’. I highly recommend this book. My ratings for the book is 5/5.
