Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson

After a sea captain stays in his family’s inn for an extended time, Jim Hawkins gets mixed up in a trip to an island in search of a buried treasure marked on the sea captain’s map. When Jim learns of a planned mutiny, he tells those in charge. The two groups split up on the island, battling each other while they both look for the treasure.

Although some parts are slow and drag along, the book is good overall. The descriptions are vivid. The story has exciting points that suck you in. Even after all these years, Treasure Island is still a great book to read.
