“Only boring people get bored…Interesting people can always find something to be interested in.”



Buried treasure. Ruthless gangsters. An ancient clue . . .
Our Captayne took the pinnace ashore and I went with hym and six men also, who were sworne by God to be secret in al they saw. Here we buried five chests filled with gold.
Tom Trelawney was looking for excitement. Now he’s found it. With his eccentric uncle Harvey, he’s travelling to South America on a quest for hidden gold. But Harvey has some dangerous enemies and they want the treasure too. Who will be the first to uncover the secrets of the mysterious island?


An interesting story that is full of adventure. The Island of Thieves is fast-paced, funny and extremely realistic. Although the author (Josh Lacey) ended the book in a conventional way, I really enjoyed the book.

I’m not going to reveal what happened: I want you to enjoy the surprises.

I would recommend this book to adults (who are interested in adventure stories) and children aged between 9 – 11.
