Treasure Planet, A Man-Kzin Novel created by Larry Niven

This is the first Man-Kzin novel that was obviously a Young Adult book.  The plot was simpler and there was not a lot of complexity in the story line  A kzinretti and young human seek out an alien treasure, think Treasure Island in space.

Peter Cartwright is the young human who narrates the story. His sidekick and protector is Marthar, a high born kzinretti.   The two of them meet their own Long John Silver and find themselves confronting space faring pirates.

The story is entertaining but very light reading.

I enjoyed the book.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
