    While Stevenson s Kidnapped was not quite as strong a work as either Treasure Island or his incredibly gripping The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, it was such an exciting, action packed, genuinely fun adventure story that I couldn t help but love it Set in 1751, it features such thrilling elements as a sinister, foul tempered uncle, a ship full of

    Why haven t I readStevenson Perhaps because from what I can tell his writing feels as remote and cold as the Scottish Isles It can be beautiful in its way, but you often forget it s there in favor ofpopular destinations withcolor and pizzazz In a way, Kidnapped feels a little like the Scottish version of Dumas The Count of Monte Cristo, which I was never overly fo
