Treasure Island - Gothic Novel?

We finished "Mansfield Park" a few nights ago, and having recently re-watched "Muppet Treasure Island" we decided to dig out the the Robert Louis Stevenson anthology that Luke gave us for the Family Reading Hour.

The story certainly moves right along! We just started two nights ago and we're almost done! But there so many interesting phrases to roll about on one's tongue and, perhaps with the exception of Long John Silver, there isn't much study in character.

Mary says she thinks its a gothic novel. I think she might be right.
