    My local library didn't have a copy of Bligh's original memoir, but this abridged-for-younger-readers version is faithful to the spirit of the original text. The rigors of life aboard 18th-century sailing ships, the motivations that First Mate Fletcher Christian may have had for leading a famous mutiny against his captain, and the perils of navigating uncharted waters in a small craft all come through loud and clear.

Had Bligh thought his memoir needed a subtitle, it could well have been "how breadfruit changed my life." The black-and-white drawings in this edition look stilted, but that's a plus, becasue they're stilted in the best Fifties fashion. Aboriginal (Tahitian) women are shown wearing modest leis, while Tahitian men look like bare-chested versions of Clint Eastwood as the outlaw Josey Wales.

    I didnt read this version. Mine was definitely a bit more challenging, but i loved the story! It was amazing seeing how so many men survived on just a small dingy for that long! Depending on what you are interested in, to me this was actually a very interested a suspenseful book as you are taken along a very long journey as several men cease to survive on just a small row boat with limited food and shelter!

    If this were a work of fiction, I would only have given it 2 stars, but the fact that this was a true story, and that this was from his personal journal, made the book much more fascinating. i read it with Nathanael, and we both wanted to know what had happened to Christian Fletcher and the rest of the mutineers. We'll have to look that up.

    This is a supposed “children’s version” of the famous story, but the facts speak for themselves. Captain Bligh is the author here, and even though he gives it his own spin, you can still see he was a monster.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Fun and easy read. It's fun to read a hardcover book with big type and pictures on every second page :). The story-telling is terse and I wish I had more details! What an experience though. I found it surprising that the deaths of 5 of the men was so casually mentioned at the very end.

    Read this with my 10 year old son. Kind of slow and not as exciting as Moby Dick.

    Upon the high seas, there is no more traitorous deed than the act of mutiny. But like any divisive act there are two sides to every story. The notorious recounting of Captain William Bligh in his writings The Mutiny on Board H.M.S.

But like any divisive act there are two sides to every story. The notorious recounting of Captain William Bligh in his writings The Mutiny on Board H.M.S.

Led by First Mate Fletcher Christian, the story of what happened on Bligh's ship is debated til this day, but fascination with the most famous mutiny in history and its origin keep this classic on shelves. Part of the Illustrated Classic Edition series, Mutiny lives up to the quality of the line, capturing the essence of the quick moving tale with engaging illustrations by Brendan Lynch. Rather than turn to the Cliff Notes editions, elementary students should turn to this version to not only understand but appreciate the tensions that constantly swell aboard ships on the high seas.

    Even though this book was loaded with facts I really enjoyed it like no other. This may be one of the best books I have ever read. I think this because the loaded story it had in it was just so rich and powerful. It had me at every word the whole way threw it. Like always I wish I could reading a million times over. Which I mean I can but nobody got time for that.

    I was more confused by this than anything. Firstly, I had no idea this was based on true events. I thought it was fiction. Secondly, I couldn't, for the life of me, understand the point of the mutiny. It made no sense to me and was not clearly explained. It was a good book but a trifle disappointing. I'll have to read the unabridged novel to get a fuller picture. I was more confused by this than anything. Firstly, I had no idea this was based on true events. I thought it was fiction.

    My grandpa AND (step)grandfather on my mom's side are both either fans of boats or shipwreck stories. On their urging I read this as my literature class (except unabridged). I actually liked it!

    This pocket book version was given to me sometime when I was 10 years old. I don't remember much about it except that I did not like it very much. This pocket book version was given to me sometime when I was 10 years old. I don't remember much about it except that I did not like it very much.

    Loved this and just about any other sea-going adventure. With great plots of betrayal, tyranny and despotism, a sea adventure is just the side-note, but a good one.
