My name is María de la Paz and I live in Córdoba, Argentina. At school we have English classes and our teacher told us to read a book, the following class she gave us a little book about pirates callled “ Treasure Island”. The book is about a boy who meets some pirates and lives adventures with them. The first time I saw the book I thought that it was a good story and when I started reading I couldn’t put the book down.

I liked the book because it was about adventures and it made you  use your imagination. I can’t say what I didn’t like because it was a very good book. And I don’t have a favourite part, because it was great and as I was reading it I imagined the different situations, I liked every part of the story. It was a very catching book.

The book is about a young boy called Jim who lives with his parents in an inn; and one day a captain called Bill arrives at the inn, he is a pirate who has a wooden chest where he hides a map of a treasure, and after Bill arrives many problems appear with other pirates. As the story goes on Jim is involved in a lot adventures to find the treasure.

I liked all the characters, but specialy Silver who is the cook of the pirates in the ship called Hispaniola. I was fond of him because he is good but at the same time he is a pirate too.

I had never read any story about this author. Now I admire him for the way he catches the reader’s attention. He is witty and very clever.

When I finished reading the book, I felt sad because I really wanted to go on reading. However, I must admit that the book fullfilled my expectations.

I recommend this book to other people because it’s a very good story to make the readers use their imagination. I know it’s not a real story but since you start reading the book, you relieve everthing that is happening is true.
