    Kidnapped ePUB Ç Paperback kidnapped pdf, Kidnapped MOBIWhile Stevenson’s Kidnapped was not quite 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

    Kidnapped ePUB Ç Paperback kidnapped pdf, Kidnapped MOBIWhy haven't I read Stevenson? Perhaps because from what I can tell his writing feels as remote and cold as the Scottish Isles It can be beautiful in its way but you often forget it's there in favor of popular destinations with color and pizzazz In a way Kidnapped feels a little like the Scottish version of Dumas' The Count of Monte Cristo which I was never overly fond of Something about the story doesn't grab me Although it should as I just recently endured a similar situation where in my business was done out of a contract by someone essentially claiming to be me Usurping my anticipat

    Kidnapped ePUB Ç Paperback kidnapped pdf, 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 anyone who likes a good story I'll probably read it again Thanks

    Kidnapped ePUB Ç Paperback kidnapped pdf, Kidnapped MOBISwashbuckling fun but the problem I have with this rereading it as an adult is the same as reading The Black Arrow Stevenson manages to be both engaging and silly sometimes at the same moment but luckily the human brain is capable of multi tasking even in the middle of a paragraphIsn't the relationship between Alexander and Ebenezer Balfour which drives the narrative too ridiculous? The elder brother giving up his inheritance and becoming an out of luck village teacher is one thing and hard enough to believe why not just split the inheritance or pay him off or set him up in a profession? but such a story must have
