Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson

All other piratey goodness must flow from this book. This is a well-written adventure that is hard to put down. A fascinating plot, great characters, and rum may be found throughout. The author tells the story from the point of view of one of the characters and then, to explain some things that this character has no knowledge of (at that time), switches to another character for the same purpose. Several surprises push the plot forward as the reader lives each moment through the character being used for the narrative. I don’t know why I have waited this long in my life to read this book. If you are in the same situation, make remedy says I!
