From the list on fiction full of intrigue, danger, and high adventure.
Who am I?
I am a physician assistant and paramedic with ten brothers and sisters, an all-consuming love of the outdoors and adventure, and a fascination with history, particularly early US history. I love reading and writing the kind of books that I would like to read. My debut novel, Firefax, was written in large part as an escape from the horrors of serving in the hospital as a physician assistant during the delta wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. I hope it provides my readers with an escape from their own struggles as well.
Amelia's book list on fiction full of intrigue, danger, and high adventure
Why did Amelia love this book?
From the very first time my mother read this story to my siblings and me as youngsters, I was hooked. The excellent 1990 adaptation featuring Christian Bale and Charlton Heston also served to fuel our youthful imaginations and we spent countless hours play-acting the story together on our farm.
This tale, full of twists and intrigue, features a fascinating group of characters pitted against perhaps the greatest villain in all of literature, Long John Silver; a wily, cunning man who you both root for and against throughout the novel. The adventure keeps going at a breakneck pace as we follow Jim Hawkins journey from boy to man as he tries to outwit the most dangerous pirate in the world.
This is the kind of high adventure and escapism that readers crave, and Stevenson delivers to a satisfying conclusion.
