Well, this turned out to be quite the surprise-I LOVED IT! I found it so lively and entertaining! I agree with bookworm, there are times I was lost in the nautical terms, but I believe I understood the majority. It had a lot of similarities to Pirates of the Caribbean's character Captain Jack Sparrow. Since I adore the movies, I took great enjoyment in it. My favorite character was John Silver because I was so impressed with his ability to get out of any situation-just like Jack Sparrow.
How old do you think Jim was? I tried to reread but couldn't find it. What was your favorite part? Mine was when they discovered the treasure gone and Silver quickly handed a gun to Jim warning him to be ready. Jim's response was so 'Jack Sparrow like'-"So, you've changed sides again?" Which is a lot like the first Pirates of the Caribbean when Elizabeth asked William Turner whose side Sparrow was on and William replied, at the moment? I am so glad I discovered this new favorite!
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum!
