This book is why I love Robert Louis Stevenson! It is a novel from the Romantic age (think going into nature) that deals with all the clasic themes: honor, bravery, journeys, etc. This is one book that you will not regret reading.

This story is an absolute masterpiece!
The setting is in Scotland after the Jacobite Rebellion. The two main character's are on opposing sides politically, yet they form a friendship that survives all obstacles. The dialogue is intelligent, the plot engaging, the setting perfect!
This is my all time favorite story!

Spirited, romantic, and full of danger, KIDNAPPED is Robert Louis Stevenson's classic of high adventure. Beloved by generations, it is the saga of David Balfour, a young heir whose greedy uncle connives to do him out of his inherited fortune and plots to have him seized and sold into slavery. But honor, loyalty, and courage are rewarded; the orphan and castaway survives kidnapping and shipwreck, is rescued by a daredevil of a rogue, and makes a thrilling escape to freedom across the wild highlands of Scotland.

I like this particular paperback. It is a good size, print is readable, the chapters don't seem so long because of the layout. It Just FEELS good. Does that make any sense? :)

Great book. Robert Louis Stevenson was a past master in the art of spinning swashbuckling tales full of adventure, the high seas, danger and romance. This classic is definitely worth a read!
