    " Decided to return to the classics - haven't read this since high school......it was a great reading journey for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chaitanya Reddy | 2/4/2014

    " A must for all the adventure lovers. Deserves a five star. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Owen Byrd | 2/2/2014

    " Great and perfect for a president even! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 1/4/2014

    " definitely not the best stevenson but a good adventure story in it's own right. you can go ahead and skip it in favor of treasure island or dr. jekyll and mr. hyde. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 rabbitprincess | 1/2/2014

    " Read in Grade 9 for an independent study project. Great book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan | 11/21/2013

    " A fun story. Stevenson has many of his characters speaking in thick dialect. This makes it a little difficult to fully discern some conversations. A smarter person than myself would probably have no difficulty. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emma | 11/5/2013

    " A great book, with a very likable hero. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kalen | 10/31/2013

    " A quick read but it was very jumpy and I think a lot of explanations were left out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessa | 10/27/2013

    " Great vacation read while I was in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. Exactly what you expect from Stevenson. A bit more adult than Treasure Island, particularly if you care at all about the political aspect of the novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John Toomey | 4/2/2013

    " Kinda tough to get through. Slow moving and a little boring but I didn't mind it while I was reading it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Puck | 3/31/2013

    " it was a good book, not one that i would say you MUST read, but one that is definitely worth reading "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew Ives | 3/18/2013

    " Very good indeed. Never boring and very well written, schools should prescribe this for every student of English. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason Mock | 3/15/2013

    " An classic chase against the 18th century Scottish Highlands. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ron | 1/26/2013

    " I read this tale in the evening with my son partly for pleasure, partly as literature/history class requirement. It was a decent tale, but not nearly as exciting as Treasure Island. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Reid | 12/22/2012

    " Read this for the first time when I was 14, lost none of it's magic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carsten Thomsen | 10/19/2012

    " I have enjoyed Robert Louis Stevensen a lot - Treasure Island and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. This one however was not that memorable. A good adventure story but it's not up there with the two other books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy W. | 9/20/2012

    " Thus was a good adventure story. It reminded me a lot of Treasure Island though, so it felt like I'd read it before. Also the period writing sometimes made it hard to understand at times. All in all it was a good story and I recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 2/23/2012

    " Not as captivating, funny, or exciting as Treasure Island, but still a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frank Richardson | 2/6/2012

    " Another classic read as a boy and re-read of late. Great example of early action-adventure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marlene | 1/18/2012

    " I love Robert Louis Stevenson's easy style of first person writing. I loved this book as a child and I still love it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 1/2/2012

    " Wonderful book!! I counldnt put it down! When i finished it, it was heart breaking :)) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 12/14/2011

    " I can see its appeal for children - there's plenty of drama here - but in fact I found it too 'busy', with never a moment's rest from the action. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 11/15/2011

    " Four stars because andreading it brings back good memories - rainy afternoons and my first literary crush. The rebellious, adventurous hero, Alan Breck Stewart may have a lot to answer for:) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 9/13/2011

    " Um, very interesting to read an old school little kids book. My boys were actually interested. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Madeleine | 8/8/2011

    " I could not get into this book at all. In total, I think it ended up taking me over a month to plow through it. That month of my life I will never get back. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elaine | 6/27/2011

    " Great adventure. Found myself thinking in a Scottish brogue. Be sure to check out the glossary. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacqui | 5/25/2011

    " Robert Louis Stevenson does it again! This story is so exciting (apart from 2/3rds the way through where it gets a little slow - too much road movie stuff). I always find myself reading his books with an accent. In Treasure Island it was pirate talk arrrgghh, in this it was Scots. Fun! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon | 5/18/2011

    " LOVED it! It was more than I hoped for. Colorful characters, great language, great insight into mid-18th-century Scotland. :) I learned a lot about the people, language and topography. RLS rocks. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 5/16/2011

    " Lots of fun in this RLS adventure/travelogue/history of Scotland. After reading this I must conclude
    that the ultimate movie Alan Breck would be Robert Downey Jr. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Samantha | 5/14/2011

    " I can never really get into classics, but I made it through this one because the movie was interesting so I though the book might be also. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Geoff | 5/13/2011

    " I've been listening to this with my son as we commute to/from various places. The story is gripping and the prose is delicious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mara | 5/11/2011

    " I enjoyed reading this short book in the ebook version. It only took a few nights to finish. I really liked all the old Scottish vocabulary, and the story was engaging. The ending was somewhat abrupt, and left me a bit disappointed, but overall it was a fun and quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 5/10/2011

    " another great book from robert louis stevenson "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nur Fathiah | 5/8/2011

    " Seventeen-year-old David Balfour's villainous uncle has him kidnapped in order to steal his inheritance. David escapes only to fall into the dangerous company of rebels who are resisting British redcoats in the Scottish highlands. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 5/1/2011

    " I have a huge collection of RLS, and this is the first one I read. Interesting story but just didn't capture me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 4/19/2011

    " Really good! It wasn't depressing as I was expecting it to be, and there was plenty of adventure!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Devin | 3/28/2011

    " Pretty good. Not as entertaining as Treasure Island, but in the end I grew to really like the main characters and their interaction together. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karenbike | 3/22/2011

    " They called this a kid's book when it was written. I find it hard to believe, but it was a fairly good read for adults. As with all books written so long ago, you have to get through the language. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Josh | 3/11/2011

    " Good classic story, but I prefer Jack London and his "Sea Wolf" novel which to me goes in the same vain. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Megan | 2/28/2011

    " I didn't care for the narration of the story. "
