This book is hard to keep up with at
first but you get used to it. It is LONG it has 36 chapters. It is a fun book that keeps you guessing, I
wouldn't recommend this book for 7th graders but maybe for an 8th or 9th grader because the vocab. is hard to keep up with.
This is the treasure map
Dynamic or Static, why?
Dr. Livesey, dynamic because his level of respect for Jim increases rapidly.
Long John Silver, static because he had the same greuling plan from the beginning.
Billy Bones, static because he is the some drunken old pirate from the beginning.
Squire Trelawney, dynamic because he goes from just an average businessman to a friend, pirate, and mostly a leader.
Jim Hawkins , The narrator, Dynamic because he is not a born hero but he faces his fears and saves his crew.
Why is this a classic novel?
Because it sums up what you expect in a good story, Action, Adventure and some Mystery and Drama. And it especially sums up a good pirate story.
