For adventure lovers

This is one of my favorite adventure stories, for anybody who enjoys action, adventure, and thrill, they should definitely buy this book. This book was so excellent I had to pass it on to somebody else so they could enjoy it just as well. I highly recommend it!

The novel is, of course, a classic adventure story. Unfortunately, this edition is poorly done. Among other flaws, it lacks an illustration of the treasure map, which is critical to the story. Instead of traditional quotation marks, it uses some odd invention that is distracting.

I took the book to my local B & N store, where the clerk agreed with my negative assessment of this edition and where I quickly found an excellent version of the book. I bought it and gave it to my grandchildren, as was planned. The story's book was actually less expensive, too, so this all ended happily.

But ditch the edition I ordered online. It is substandard.

    don't read this!

    Wow. I really, really, hated this book! Hate is a strong word and i'm not afraid to use it with this book. I read it for language, my teacher was like oh yeah if u liked the movie pirates of teh caribbean you'll like this book. Boy, oh boy, she was so wrong. I couldnt stand reading it and almost refused to read it in her class, and I made straight A's all through junior high and wouldnt have cared to fail because i disliked this book so much. So yeah, dont read it! :o). I dont know what others see in this book that like it?

    the book is not your best choice if you dont like pirate books

    This book isn't really a good choice it just doesn't describe, except one part . If there was a zero that is what I would rate it. Not a one .The book stinks or you could say its not a book for some girls. Boys may really like it but I don't think girls will.

    This book was terrible from beginning to end!

    This book was terrible from beginning to end. To me it had no plot to it. I would never ever recommend this book to anyone.
