One of my favorite adventure novels is the classic Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. You’re swept into the action in chapter one where the young narrator meets the pirate who will seal his fate for the remainder of the story. From treasure hunting to battling on a deserted (or is it?) island, this book keeps you excited and uncertain from beginning to end. Stevenson sneaks in a few surprises as well. This is a page turner and easy to read in a day or two. If you like high seas adventure, I suggest you turn to the original and read Treasure Island this weekend.
