Treasure Island — Download Free at Planet eBookThe most popular pirate story ever written in English, featuring one of literature's most beloved bad guys. Its unforgettable characters include: young Jim Hawkins, who finds himself owner of a map to Treasure Island, where the fabled pirate booty is buried; honest Captain Smollett, heroic Dr. Livesey, and the good-hearted but obtuse Squire Trelawney, who help Jim on his quest for the treasure; the frightening Blind Pew, double-dealing Israel Hands, and seemingly mad Ben Gunn; and of course, Long John Silver, who is one moment a friendly, laughing, one-legged sea-cook, and the next a dangerous pirate leader. I remember him as if it were yesterday, as he came plodding to the inn door, his sea-chest following behind him in a hand-barrow—a tall, strong, heavy, nut-brown man, his tarry pigtail falling over the shoulder of his soiled blue coat, his hands ragged and scarred, with black, broken nails, and the sabre cut across one cheek, a dirty, livid white. I remember him looking round the cover and whistling to himself as he did so, and then breaking out in that old sea-song that he sang so often afterwards: "Fifteen men on the dead man's chest— Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum! Then he rapped on the door with a bit of stick like a handspike that he carried, and when my father appeared, called roughly for a glass of rum.

For The Retro Reader
I like Terry Brooks and his Shannara series. And Mr. But with scurvy pirates, honest sailors, marooned souls, and buried treasure on a faraway island, this book has fascinated readers for more than a century and still going good. But somehow you get deeply involved with the story and the characters. You feel you are on the scene and start losing the sense of reality.
