"Treasure Island" by Robert Louis Stevenson

Just finished reading "Treasure Island" by Robert Louis Stevenson and... thought it was ok.

I think it very much falls into the category of books that I felt like I should have enjoyed due the the "classic" status, but I didn't care for it a great deal. I suppose a lot of it was due to the dialect used throughout that made it at times hard to read, but truth be told, I was glad was I finally finished it.

That said, enormous props once again to the makers of the "Classics" iPhone app (which I used previously to read "Call of the Wild" and "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" and reviewed here and here respectively). Such a great user interface and with these three books down, I still have another fifteen different classic books I could read on this iPhone app should I choose.
