In the Scottish canon, to be placed alongside Burns is high praise indeed, but it's a rightful place for Robert Louis Stevenson, one of Scotland's finest novelists.

Born in 1850, he managed to cram much into his 44 years travelling widely to France, the United States, Samoa, and the South Seas. Of course he is widely feted for his classics Dr. Jeckyll & Mr. Hyde, Treasure Island, and poetry volumes such as A Child's Garden Of Verses.

Here we concentrate on his short stories Olliah and The Body Snatchers. Both offer compelling examples of narration and suspense superbly reduced to their essence. This volume is brought to your ears by Richard Mitchley and Robbie McNab.

    " This is actually one of the classics that I hadn't read before... there are quite a few of them actually... It wasn't quite what I was expecting. From all the pop culture references to Jekyll and Hyde I thought that Hyde had gone on the big killing spree that terrorized London for months, but that wasn't the case. It had several strong similarities to Dorian Gray actually with the majority of the drama being confined in the group up three friends... I wonder if anyone has written on the similarities??? RESEARCH! X3 "

    " You know, I hate to say it, but I really wasn't a fan of any of it. Stevenson is writing thrillers but he gives away his thrills well before they happen. I also don't find Jekyll and Hyde as horrific as I have seen it done in other media. I feel I'm going to be stoned for it but I really didn't particularly enjoy it. "

    " Too much tellin', not enough showin'. Authors in Stevenson's day seem to have had something against things actually happening during the course of their stories, so the story only progresses by other characters talking about things they'd heard had happened, before. I guess that's why classic literature is usually considered so boring by modern standards... "

    " Not as tightly plotted as his other tales, but fascinating. "
