    "This has to be by far the best book i have ever read, well, with the help of my kindle. HaHa. Some nights i read it aloud to the kids, ages 4 and 7. They absolutely love it, after about 30 mins they are starting to sleep. The kindle reads when i cant any longer. We all love the ocean and the intrigue. "

    "Treasure Island is a classic children's historical novel by Robert Louis Stevenson and I would definitely say that it is one of the best books worth 5 dollars and below. If you're interested in adventure books filled with pirates then this would be the perfect classic tale for you. Written over a century ago, this has definitely stood the test of time to become one of the greatest books out there to this day. "

    "I like Scottish fiction books. I think you can find great characters that are a bit more edgier than the one the author creates in the USA. Treasure Island featured all of that. It hooked you in and made you not want to put the book down."
  • Amit Pawar

    "It's a classic for sure, and I like the overall concept, but it's a little too old-school for me. I think that's because when I was younger, I read an adaptation of Indiana Jones that reads better than this does. Both are similar tales, and one obviously influenced the other, but it just didn't "grab" me the way I hoped it would."

    "While Treasure Island is a great book, I believe the user is looking for books to learn about Android and not a book to read on an android device using Amazon Kindle."

    "This novel is a prime example of a great pirate story done right. It touches upon so many aspects of that world. From excessive consumption of alcohol to their code of honor, shipwrecks, treason. There is so much to mention that I would suggest reading it as a book or listening to it as a free audiobook online."

    "This is a classic for a reason! Swashbuckling Pirates, buried treasure, adventure and danger on the high seas; this book has it all. I first read this book at about 8 years old and I loved it. I have re-read the book several times since then and I find something new to love even more about it each time. I have to say that my favorite character has to be Long John Silver, he's the ultimate pirate! Sneaky, scheming and utterly dishonorable, he's also a charming scalawag that you won't soon forget."

    "Treasure Island in my opinion is the quintessential adventure story. I remember reading it as a child, and watching a dozen film and television adaptations. It's been imitated, parodied, re-interpreted, and re-invented, but there's only one original, and it will always and forever be a timeless classic."

After following several suggestions by readers on what are the best books to read, I think I was able to find what I thought was the best for me.
