    " A fun farce, but nothing too special. "

    " ( A Caixa Trocada ) "

    " I found the plot completely implausible and ridiculous. Yet, I did enjoy this classic. It is very Shakespearean in many ways and I enjoyed that. The characters are rich and interesting and the plot, though mind-numbingly reliant on coincidence, is fun to watch unfold. "

    " *giggles* absurd mayhem... pure entertainment "

    " Stevenson is a favorite author of mine but The Wrong Box didn't feel like it hung together as well as Kidnapped or Treasure Island. It's a good light comedy, but Stevenson does better with action and scene-setting I think. "

    " Daft! Thoroughly enjoyed it. "

    " reads like an Agatha Christy :) "

    " The 1966 movie was better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter Cline | 5/18/2011

    " Enjoyable read. Not as funny as I might have hoped but clever and loaded with lots of colorful 19th century British colloquialisms. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lizzy | 5/7/2011

    " Absolutely hilarious. Was made aware of its existence after accidentally watching the movie (that I also didn't know existed). "

    " A farce co-written by R.L. Stevenson and his stepson Lloyd Osbourne, this comedy of a concealed body is hectic, improbable, dated, and intermittently funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 matthew | 5/8/2009

    " i'd never thought of stevenson as a comic writer (and i suppose his co-author speaks to that), but this is a fine little novel, rather like wodehouse. "

    " Excellent dark humour!! "
