If you don’t already know the plot: young Jim Hawkins and his mother happen upon a treasure map when a resident of their inn dies abruptly. Jim ends up on a voyage to discover the fabled treasure of the infamous Captain Flint thanks to an impulsive squire. Unknowingly, they’ve set sail with a crew manned almost entirely by pirates, the cook, Long John Silver, being the most clever and notorious of the bunch. Adventures ensue.
This is one of the classics I’ve wanted to read for a long time, but have put it off because I wanted to like it and wasn’t sure I would. Turns out, I liked it!
