Written just over 160 Years after Robinson Crusoe and just over 130 Years ago today; this is the Original Pirate Ship fantasy which has captivated our imaginations since.
Stevenson's ability as an author is an ability to engage the reader quickly; and to condense complex details and characters in a short amount of pages without lapsing into the trend of over-use of the English language, which is a common standard of writing from that time.
Pros: Quick into the action and convincing, lively characters, plot and narrative. A short (ish) yet adrenaline fueled adventure.
Cons: Very few, if any. Maybe a bit beyond the literacy of very young readers which might benefit most from it; but a ripping bedtime story for parents who dare think the little ones will sleep after hearing a few chapters.
