David Balfour has never had an adventure, never sailed the high sea, nor fought in a battle - that changes after the death of his parents. Now he must collect his inheritance from his father's younger brother, and assume his station as man of wealth and standing, but that is not as simple as it sounds. He must first survive and outwit his treacherous uncle to gain what is rightfully his.

    " it was interesting to get an idea what it could have been like in 1800....but the story itself dragged on a bit and even though I expected for something to happen, nothing really ever happened.... "

    " Enjoyable classic adventure novel. I'm very glad I finally got around to reading it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathie | 2/15/2014

    " Always considered to be book written for young boys, anyone would enjoy the story of a young man's adventures and revenge. It was interesting to read about areas of Scotland that I have traveled. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 ChristinaRae | 2/11/2014

    " You just have to love RLS. He is the master of classic action-adventure. The kind of book that stuffy critics love to refer to as "boys'" novels. Well, I happen to love boys and their novels. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 2/6/2014

    " read with Nathan when he is older "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebekah | 1/26/2014

    " Listen to this on Audio by a reader that uses the Scottish accent. It's great! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 1/19/2014

    " 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 Ruth | 12/27/2013

    " A good story, but a little difficult to read in parts because of the Scottish "brogue" and references to historical things of the times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maggie | 9/27/2013

    " I liked it, but it was not a book which captured my interest for a while. I only read it for school, and because it is my dad's favorite book. Still, it was well written, and definetly a classic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikki | 9/26/2013

    " Stevenson was called "Tusitala" -- Story Writer -- in his last home on a Samoan island, and that he was. Was it his sickly childhood that made him such a fine adventure-story writer? Although Treasure Island is my favorite, I also enjoyed Kidnapped. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsey Doolan | 8/31/2013

    " Beautiful 1949 hardcover edition from my grandfather. Not as good as Treasure Island; a little more perseverance required to get through the middle section. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emma | 8/28/2013

    " Great book. A real story of manly friendship. I would reccommend this book to any of my literature-loving male friends, especially if they are scottish. Note for dad: There is a bagpipe competition in the second half. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Madeleine | 8/1/2013

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mister Jones | 7/30/2013

    " I tried, but it just didn't radiate enough interest for me. "

    " I liked it but was kinda borring!!!! Good tho!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dacus | 3/4/2013

    " Read it when i was around 11. Deep and sensitive but also rebellious. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine | 12/14/2012

    " There is just something so romantic about the Scots. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Theresa | 12/14/2012

    " a very simple story of early childhood adventure "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Horn | 7/25/2012

    " I read this every few years I love it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon | 3/22/2012

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy | 1/13/2012

    " I was a little disappointed, I had expected something more. I'm not really sure why, but I found it a bit flat - maybe episodic rather than suspenseful I think. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mohit | 12/23/2011

    " Excellent plot, keeps you interested till the very end. The characters are crafted with elegance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 10/23/2011

    " Most of the characters in this book speak in "Scottish" which makes it hard to understand at times. The thrilling plot contains kidnapping, swordfighting, ship wrecks, grand adventures, and a really dull ending. "
