Treasure Island

by Robert Louis Stevenson

None of the movies do this classic any justice. Even Kenner Classic Tales from the 70s made poor on this tale. Read the book. Don't even waste any time on the movies.

Moby Dick

by Herman Melville

Its a great book but a little long winded. Old scientific explanations and how things are done are ok but that took half the book. The movies were ok but did not show the human side of Captain Ahab like the book does. In all a good read.

Kidnapped

by Robert Louis Stevenson

Interesting Book. Good adventure with lots of politics in it. The movies do not do it justice.
