Treasure Island
By Robert Louis Stevenson



The main character in the story is Jim Hawkins. He is a young boy who looks for adventure.
He and a few experienced men search for Ben Gunn, and want to have him enlist in their
cause. They steal the Hispanolia (a ship) and return it to the captain to which it
rightfully belongs.

Ben is a member of Flint's original crew. He was forced to live on the island for three
years and survive on his own. He found Flint's treasure, and then buried it. Trying to
keep it away from the pirates that try to capture Jim and Sliver. The pirates think that
Ben is unintelligent, but Jim and Silver know that's he's really a nice guy who is agile
and quite smart. Ben returns with Jim and Sliver and the other crew members. He spends his
portion of the treasure in three weeks. Another main character is Long John Silver. He is
an old sailor cook, who is the leader of the pirates and one of Jim's friends. He has only
one leg and usually has his parrot, Captain Flint, who always says " Pieces of Eight,
Pieces of Eight." Silver shows paternal liking and kindness for Jim. Other times Silver
shows cruelness and extreme brutality in executing other sailors.
