I was sure I had previously read this in Grade 8 but barely remembered any of it. What's with that? Coles Notes? I don't imagine it's assigned anymore, given a section on a conniving Jewish jeweller. It is a wonderful tale, though, and my Folio Society edition, beautifully illustrated by Michael Manomivibul, helped warm quite a few winter nights.

I have fond memories from School of this book and although it was one of the books I was forced to read it still ranks as one of the best books I have read and so from memory I gave it 4 stars. I have just re-read it and have reconsidered my rating. It now gets 5 stars! An absolute page turning delight, still as exciting now as it was then. I guess the repeated and rather heavy handed signposting about evil spirits from evil deeds clinging to a certain something jars a little but it is a very, very small criticism of an otherwise hugely enjoyable book and definitely goes on my "books I will read to my children whether they like it or not" list that I am slowly compiling in my head just in case that happy event ever happens!

smugglers, graveyard, secret tunnels, hidden treasure, suspense - all the ingredients of a great adventure story; I lived it and loved it.

This was quite a well-known book when I was a child, but, for some reason, I never got round to reading it. So I've been repairing a childhood omission. In a small way, this is a bit of a Bildungsroman - a depiction of a boy's journey into manhood - and there is quite a moral spine to the story; but it's not at all preachy, with nothing there to frighten off impatient adolescents. There isn't really much structure or depth to it and, at base, it's just a boys' adventure story with tales of smugglers and a search for hidden treasure and gripping adventures in hidden tunnels or on the sea. Having said that, it's quite well-written and up with the best of its kind. I found it quite absorbing and I found the hero's eventual, dramatic return home quite lump-in-the-throat moving. I note that it's still in print, and in a number of editions, and deservedly so. It deserves to be regarded as at least a minor classic of its genre.

This is one of the les...

This is one of the lesser-known classics of the late 19th century and suffers somewhat from being often regarded as primarily a children's book with little to offer the adult reader. Even if that were true it is still an engrossing story. In practice it is more than just that, running together the stories of the young, impulsive and thoughtless narrator John Trenchard and the older, enigmatic and ultimately Christ-like Elzevir Block who allows himself to be carried along on the tide Trenchard's immature fancies and greed. This one deserves to be more widely read that it is.
