July, 1802. In the marshy eastern reaches of the Thames lies the Hispaniola, an inn kept by Jim Hawkins and his son. Young Jim spends his days roaming the mist-shrouded estuaries, running errands for his father and listening to his stories in the taproom; tales of adventures on the high seas, of curses, murder and revenge, black spots and buried treasure - and of a man with a wooden leg.Late one night, a mysterious girl named Natty arrives on the river with a request for Jim from her father - Long John Silver. Aged and weak, but still possessing a strange power, the pirate proposes that Jim and Natty sail to Treasure Island in search of Captain Flint's hidden bounty, the 'beautiful bar silver' left behind many years before. Silver has chartered a ship and a hardy crew for this purpose, whose captain is waiting only for the map, now locked away at the Hispaniola.Making haste from London, Jim and Natty set off in the footsteps of their fathers, their tentative friendship growing stronger day by day. But the thrill of the ocean odyssey gives way to terror as the Nightingale reaches its destination, for it seems that Treasure Island is not as uninhabited as it once was... Featuring a cast of noble seamen, murderous pirates, and stories of love, valour and terrible cruelty, Silver is a worthy sequel to Treasure Island - one of the greatest adventure stories ever told - and a work of extraordinary authenticity and imaginative power from one of England's greatest writers.

An OK read. Interesting story line but seemed to lack some development. Not to sell it short bhecause I did enjoy reading it but perhaps a bit juvenile. This is not one I would read again.
This was a fun read. My E version came with a free copy of Treasure Island which I read first. [I had seen the movie, but had never read the book.] The author's style reminded me very much of Robert Louis Stevenson's. I recommend the book for airplanes and beaches. If you like Treasure Island, you will like this.
Predictable, but still fun to read.. you just need a. solid suspension of belief. No need to comment on the plot--a sequel to Treasure Island. Young readers will especially enjoy this and relate to the major narrator, a brave and unnaturally lucky boy. Some violence, but nothing over the top, and no romance... just treasure hunting adventure. I felt a little letdown at the end. I would have liked a little more about what happened to the protagonist... but maybe there will be a third sequel!
Including as it does the original, (at the end --- just as one had the desire to revisit it), the comparison between the two is complementary. Neither possess aspirations to greatness, yet both provide great enjoyment for the nautical adventure that they are, and are well worth the time.
Light weight - does not have the engagement that one gets from RLS's original. Nevertheless it does place a loose hold on the reader's expectations of some reward. (no pun intended) For me it was something that I could read when I had nothing else to do. Worth the price but do not expect too much.
Superb writing. Wish I was as good a writer as Mr. Motion. Loved "Treasure Island," and this sequel is beautifully written. A nostalgic thriller is how I would describe it, and well worth the read.
Return to the adventures of the high seas. The search it's on for the silver buried forty years ago. Join young Jim and Nattie as they pick up the story set fourth by their fathers. The ships cabin is waiting for you, enjoy this wonderful escape.
I have to say I was disappointed in this book. The pace was too slow for me. The main protagonist/narrator sounded pompous, dull and tedium personified. Maybe it was me. I could not finish it I was so bored.
