20 best adventure books


beau-geste-wrenI really enjoyed writing this feature about the 20 best adventure books of all time – each one is truly timeless. Some are a little old fashioned but that’s OK with me. I became really nostalgic for my childhood as I was trying to remember all these books. And then it all came flooding back to me – the wild celtic tribesmen in Eagle of the Ninth, Davie Balfour fleeing across the Highlands in Kidnapped, Billy Bones and the black spot, the fort defended by deadmen in Beau Geste, Edmond Dant├Ęs’ revenge, Captain Nemo and Buck’s fight for survival in the Yukon.

Enjoy – here’s the full feature.
