Item Description...
Set in the aftermath of the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745, Kidnapped (1886) sustains a gripping narrative. It is told by David Balfour, a young Whig and Lowlander, who is tracked by his miserly uncle, survives attempted murder, kidnap and shipwreck and, in the company of Alan Breck, a Jacobite, escapes through the Highlands. Kidnapped is an adventure story in which the tensions run deep, not only between pursuer and pursued, but in ancient misunderstandings between the two heroes themselves: Whig and Jacobite, Lowland rationalist and romantic Highlander.

More About Robert Louis Stevenson & Michael Page

Robert Louis Stevenson Born on November 13, 1850, in Edinburgh, Scotland, Robert Louis Stevenson traveled often, and his global wanderings lent themselves well to his brand of fiction. Stevenson developed a desire to write early in life, having no interest in the family business of lighthouse engineering. He was often abroad, usually for health reasons, and his journeys led to some of his early literary works.

Publishing his first volume at the age of 28, Stevenson became a literary celebrity during his life when works such as Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde were released to eager audiences. He died in Samoa in 1894.

In 1878, Robert Louis Stevenson saw the publication of his first volume of work, An Inland Voyage; the book provides an account of his trip from Antwerp to northern France, which he made in a canoe via the river Oisé. A companion work, Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes (1879), continues in the introspective vein of Inland Voyage and also focuses on the voice and character of the narrator, beyond simply telling a tale.

Also from this period are the humorous essays of Virginibus Puerisque and Other Papers (1881), which were originally published from 1876 to '79 in various magazines, and Stevenson's first book of short fiction, New Arabian Nights (1882). The stories marked the United Kingdom's emergence into the realm of the short story, which had previously been dominated by Russians, Americans and the French. These stories also marked the beginning of Stevenson's adventure fiction, which would come to be his calling card.

The 1880s were notable for both Stevenson's declining health (which had never been good) and his prodigious literary output. He suffered from hemorrhaging lungs (likely caused by undiagnosed tuberculosis), and writing was one of the few activities he could do while confined to bed. While in this bedridden state, he wrote some of his most popular fiction, most notably Treasure Island (1883), Kidnapped (1886), Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1886), and The Black Arrow (1888).

The idea for Treasure Island was ignited by a map that Stevenson had drawn for his 12-year-old stepson; Stevenson had conjured a pirate adventure story to accompany the drawing, and it was serialized in the boys' magazine Young Folks from October 1881 to January 1882. When Treasure Island was published in book form in 1883, Stevenson got his first real taste of widespread popularity, and his career as a profitable writer had finally begun. The book was Stevenson's first volume-length fictional work, as well as the first of his writings that would be dubbed "for children." By the end of the 1880s, it was one of the period's most popular and widely read books.

Robert Louis Stevenson lived in Edinburgh Edinburgh. Robert Louis Stevenson was born in 1850 and died in 1894.

Pretty Good  Sep 16, 2008
I was forced to read this book by school but I have to admit it was pretty good. It definitly isn't the best book I have ever read but it acually was worth reading. It was surprising but sometimes I didn't understand what was happening. I liked it plus the book was really cheap and was delievered really fast. I rate it a good book to read!
I know its well loved but i didnt love it...  Jul 17, 2008
I know this book is considered a classic loved by most but i found it to be a big let down. its not that i consider it just a kids book or have a low opinion of stevenson, i think treasure island is one of the best adventure stories ever written. kidnapped falls somewhat flat in comparison. the story is simple and gets repetitive with david balfour essentially running through the highlands with Alan (whom i found it be a very annoying character) for half the book. at times it looked like i was reading a bad version of the count of monte cristo (a much better book)but instead of adversity creating a cunning mature man hell-bent on a meticulously planned revenge we get a snot nosed little kid who has a very low opion of 'highland savages'. the only part of the book i found exciting was when he was held captive on the ship and that was too much a of repeat of treasure island for comfort. also stevenson always seemed to be writing something that was geared for popular cosumption and while this works in his other works it didnt seem to work for me here. of course he was no charles dickens but i thought books like dr j and hyde to be far more in depth look at society, greed, and desire in general.
Kidnapped My Attention!  Mar 17, 2008
Oh, what a great book! Robert Louis Stevenson strikes a perfect balance between action and description.

As previous reviews have said much about the plot and the worth of reading this wonderful book, I will add just a bit. Buy a copy of this tale for any child aged ten or older, and they'll have a story of adventure to read over and over again as they grow up! I guarantee it will be a work they'll remember with great fondness. And do yourself a favor and read a tale of intrigue that only Stevenson could have written. This is definitely not just a book for children and teens!

For those who have difficulty with the Scottish terms, in the Scholastic Classics paperback edition there is a full glossary in back, and I found not one word missing from it.

Kidnapped (Scholastic Classics)

i am very satisfied with the quality and speedy shipping of this product.
Pretty Good Book  Oct 20, 2007
I am a big fan of Robert Louis Stevenson as opposed to Charles Dickens or something like that. His books have a reasonable length and they are full of adventure and easy to follow.

This book had a fairly simple premise and was not as exciting or memorable as Treasure Island and not as fascinating as the Dr. Jekyll ad Mr Hyde narrative, but it was good and simple. I remember this book as a kid, maybe in fourth grade that when he was in the brig and shipwrecked, and headed for slavery I stopped reading because I thought it was all to dark.
But this time around I found the tale a bit more amusing. I guess a lot of this story is a story about finding maturity through hardship. Its hard for me to say that it's a coming of age story as I read somewhere. The moral of the story is not so clear, since the character doesn't really mature too much in terms of voice or role relative to Uncle or Alan. Instead his hardship, sort of grants him some reasonable part of his inheritance, but nothing to great, just something to live a normal life by.
I liked this book. It took me only about 5 or six hours to read the entire book. It never got overbearing and it realised what it was for.
