    Paperback ¶ Kidnapped eBook º kidnapped ebok, Kidnapped MOBIWhile Stevenson’s Kidnapped was not uite as strong a work as either Treasure Island or his incredibly gripping The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde it was such an exciting action packed genuinely fun adventure story that I couldn’t help but love it Set in 1751 it features such thrilling elements as a sinister foul tempered uncle a ship full of villainous sailors a shipwreck on a gloomy deserted island political intrigue Murder the perilous proximity of the Red Coats on the Scottish Highlands and much much Plus I found the young protagonist David extremely likable and relatable; he was good hearted loyal intellig

    Paperback ¶ Kidnapped eBook º kidnapped ebok, Kidnapped MOBII read an illustrated and abridged version of this when I was a kid Now reading the unabridged version as an adult I really liked it The story is solid the characters are meaningful and interact well and the plot was good and comprehensible There is nothing deep or subliminal about this That's not to say the story is shallow but is good because everything is surface level Throughout the story I kept wondering if the main character David Balfour was resilient and mentally strong or just lucky Maybe I'm looking too deep into it I enjoyed this solid adventure story and would recommend Robert Louis Stevenson to a
