Jim Hawkins holds the map to a famous pirate treasure. He finds himself on an unexpected journey surrounded by sailors and pirates not knowing who he can trust.
This is a much beloved classic that I have seen many film adaptions of. I wasn't exactly sure what to expect from the actual novel.
I was really surprised on the complex relationships. With the exception of innocent Jim everyone else is a morally grey character. The characters were well fleshed out.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to stay engaged in the story. I kept zoning in and out as I read it.
It is because of that that I gave this book a C. I enjoyed the book but I didn't love it.
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
