First time I’ve ever put a ‘classic’ into a W2RW post btu I thought it was about time. Since W2RW isn’t explicitly about new/recent books it’s just about things I…want to read (duh). I’m going to start rambling if I don’t get on with this so here we go!
Treasure Island is one of those books that I could probably tell you the exact plot of, except I’ve never read the book. I blame Muppet Treasure Island and the later Treasure planet for that. I will never trust anyone with the name ‘Long John Silver’ (I have yet to meet one, but you never know).
Treasure Island is one of those books that I feel like I ought to have read by now. I have no idea what the prose will be like but I love a good pirate story as much as the next person and I feel like Treasure Island was where a lot of the really good pirate tropes were built from.
I have no idea when/if I’ll ever get round to reading this book but hey, it’s been around since 1883, it’s not going anywhere soon!
Are there any ‘classics’ that you want to read at some point when you can find the time? Let me know in the comments or tweet me @judithcmoore.
See you tomorrow!
