Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

A voyage for buried treasure spells trouble for cabin boy Jim Hawkins, who finds himself in the middle of a mutiny with some of the nastiest pirates to ever sail the seven seas.

Biographie de l'auteur

Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894) traveled early and often, leaving behind his family business and an education in engineering and law to pursue a life of adventure. His first books included An Inland Voyage, which contained tales of his travels—by canoe—from Antwerp to northern France.

Marriage took Stevenson even farther from home, as he and his wife Fanny settled in California, where he wrote short stories such as “The Treasure of Franchard” and “Markheim,” featuring themes that would appear in later novels.

Stevenson’s health declined in the 1880s, but his work flourished. He wrote Treasure Island while bedridden with a likely case of tuberculosis, and he followed up with The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Both were wildly popular when they were published in the 1880s, and they remain so today.

Ayant lu il y a fort longtemps la version française, j'ai décidé de la relire mais en anglais maintenant. C'est chose faite et j'en suis très content.

L'aventure à l'état pur, ce texte se suffit à lui-même. Tout est parfait: les personnages, les paysages, l'intrigue.. De plus c'est aussi un roman qui fait sens, un roman du passage de l'enfance à l'âge adulte avec ses pertes et ses découvertes. Bien sûr un travail critique ou une petite bio de Stevenson seraient un plus.. mais c'est une autre histoire...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 No Boy Ever Really Outgrows Treasure Island 22 septembre 2013
Par Robert Guttman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Treasure Island was written 130 years ago and it remains one of the great adventure tales of all time. I originally read it when I was about ten years old and, fifty years later, I recently re-read it in the Kindle edition. The fact that the book brings as much pleasure now as it did then is an indication of how good it really is. Stevenson truly hit the ball out of the park with this one.

Much has been remarked in many of these critiques about the outdated language Stevenson used. In that regard, I have to say that the Kindle edition that I downloaded lacks one thing that was included in my old printed edition, which was published by MacMillan way back in 1924. The old edition has a set of notes following the text, explaining a lot of the nautical terms and old-fashioned jargon. It even includes the complete lyrics to "A Bottle of Rum". I never found those notes necessary but they might prove useful to some of the younger readers, to whom such language might be unfamiliar. Personally, I think the language is part of what has given this tale it's lasting appeal. In addition, I don't know whether 18th Century pirates really spoke the way Stevenson has them speak in Treasure Island, but there is no doubt that it is the way they will forever be remembered, "...and ye may lay to that, Matey"!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Shiver me timbers, 'tis a good read 23 février 2017

My recent read of The Brethren Prince The Brethren Prince: Piracy, Revenge, and the Culture Clash of the Old Caribbean got me thinking of Treasure Island, which I had read 45+ years ago, as a boy. I decided it was time to give the book a second look. I enjoyed it. 'Twas easy to see, written as it was, from young Jim Hawkin's perspective, how this was a book tailored to boys. Of course, Jim sure had a lot of good luck, to make it through the entire (mis)adventure. Some of that luck, and a few actions of characters, were far-fetched enough that I can not award a full five stars for this literary classic.

I remembered little of this story, from my earlier read. The old style language would have been pretty difficult for a typical, young baby boomer -- and, I expect I had gone through some segments with only a general idea of what was happening. Perhaps my book had had a bit of glossary, as another recent reader recalled from his childhood reading. It would be a good book to read along with a young person, to explain terms and quaint language, and to look up items, together.

As a viewer of Black Sails, I noted that three of the characters in the series were lifted from Treasure Island, as a bit of Googling confirmed that, indeed, they are fictional: Billy Bones, John Silver, Captain Flint.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Classic adventure story, perfect to read aloud to young boys who like pirates and treasure. 5 octobre 2015

I read this aloud to my 8 year old son, who was fascinated by the gripping tale of how a young boy named Jim battled wits with the diabolical Long John Silver in a quest for treasure. The language was archaic, so you might prefer an abridged version - I was so busy concentrating on the language, I couldn't always follow the story I was reading, but my son could follow it very well, just by listening.
Jim's parents run an inn in coastal England, and a retired sea captain comes to stay there, telling Jim to look out for his enemy, a man with one leg. The sea captain clearly has something of value hidden, and it's only after he is killed in a violent confrontation that Jim finds the valuable item - a treasure map. He takes the map to the local doctor, who decides to finance a voyage to find the treasure. But Jim is aghast when the ship's cook turns out to be a man with one leg - Long John Silver himself.
The story covers the voyage to Treasure Island and the violent pitch for power once they arrive there - Jim must use all his resources and quick wits to save his friends, protect the ship and locate the treasure. Long John Silver must be one of the most convincing, charismatic and far-sighted villains in literature, and even he had great respect for Jim's ability to think on his feet.
If the old-fashioned language is too much of an obstacle, I would recommend an abridged version or one with plenty of pictures to help support the story.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Friendship, betrayal, murder, and piracy. This is the book that defines modern perceptions of pirates. Just read it. It's great. 3 novembre 2015

A classic in every sense of the word. From the cultural icons of Long John Silver, pirates with peg legs, parrots on shoulders, and lively sea shanties being sung by a crew...Treasure Island is the place where most ideas of what a pirate looks like came from.
There is violence...it's a book about pirates, after all...but nothing too graphic or gratuitous. Yes, people are shot and run through with swords, but you don't have the "blood spatter details" we're subjected to in so many media formats today. Leaving things to the imagination seems to be a lost art form, especially when everyone seems to feel the need to "one-up" the last book with even more graphic descriptions of violence...thankfully this book was written before that began, so you can let your teens or even tweens read this without having to worry about them being exposed to salacious details.

Numerous other books, movies, even music have been influenced by Treasure Island. You really owe it to yourself to read this great adventure book and reinvigorate your imagination.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 "Yo Ho HO" Still a Great Read 2 novembre 2016
Par MLH - Publié sur Amazon.com

Still a classic adventure with great writing and memorable characters. I feared that I would be disappointed re-reading this book as an adult and that my fond memories would be destroyed-as they were when I re-read Swiss Family Robinson. Swiss Family Robinson can only be enjoyed by children, I learned, because adults see immediately how ridiculous it is. Treasure Island, however, is a masterpiece. As a child, I did not appreciate the characterization of Long John Silver. I remembered him only as a "bad pirate," but he is so much more: devious and clever--and likable! I also, as an adult, recognized how much of our pirate folklore comes from this tale. I encourage adults to give this "treasure" another read. You'll have a new appreciation for this truly classic work.
