The Reading Challenge 2016 and a book that takes place on an island


Well...guess who is failing again in this challenge thing ;)
soooo behind already ;)
...damn... 
^^ hahaha ^^

Okay okay...back to this review ;)
Today: "A book that takes place on an island"

My choice: "Treasure Island" by Robert Louis Stevenson
I know not very creative ;) but as usual I try to read the books already waiting on my shelves before buying any new ones ;)
This book is an old classic and I a sure I read it befor but that is as least 10 years ago and I decided its time to read it again ;)



Picture above and review are again from goodreads

The most popular pirate story ever written in English, featuring one of literature’s most beloved “bad guys,” Treasure Island has been happily devoured by several generations of boys—and girls—and grownups. 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, buccaneers of varying shades of menace; and, of course, garrulous, affable, ambiguous Long John Silver, who is one moment a friendly, laughing, one-legged sea-cook . . .and the next a dangerous pirate leader!

The unexpected and complex relationship that develops between Silver and Jim helps transform what seems at first to be a simple, rip-roaring adventure story into a deeply moving study of a boy’s growth into manhood, as he learns hard lessons about friendship, loyalty, courage and honor—and the uncertain meaning of good and evil.

I remember having an audiobook collection as a child, just several classics of literature, and Treasure Island was part of it. I remember listening to this over and over and over again and I loved it so much.
Now over 10 years later I did not even remember most of it ^^but I do now.
An I am loving it again ;) its just one of those books you know, one of those stories

its really hard to rate though...its hard to separate my beloved childhood memories from what I think now ;) so I guess something between 6 and 10 out of 19 ^^


What about you?
Read it? Liking it? A childhood memory too?


With lots of love
