Robert Louis “Tusitala” Stevenson – Treasure Island

Robert Louis “Tusitala” Stevenson – Treasure Island August 25, 2020

Score: 8/10 “Tusitala” Average Goodreads rating: 3.76 (Blasphemous if you ask me…) Books sold: 3 mil. Everybody knows that good ol’ Tusitala wrote one other book (something about certain Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) and that he was quite famous for it. And I’m positive you also know that majority of his google searches are from Samoa. Right? And if there is anybody who wouldn’t know why, let me just repeat the obvious. Well, he moved there.

I know sales isn’t everything, but there is a reason he is being so sought after – unhappy marriages. He sure made business out of them, but he also, I believe, genuinely (and to certain extent successfully) tries to help them(us). He’s…

Robert L. Stevenson – Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Robert L. Stevenson – Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde August 29, 2018

Score: 8.5/10 I know you were wondering and as this is my jubilean 10th book, it is only appropriate to give the audience what are they asking for. The pages you see in my cover video are from none other book than this jewel. This disturbingly accurate description of a man’s duality problem combined with a superb writing skills and chilling story is a recipe for your good times. There are few, mostly British, authors being able to make you…
