David Balfour finds himself looking for comfort & answers from his father's brother after the death of his father. While staying with his uncle, he quickly discovers that there is some bad blood running thru the family. There is an inheritance that was left to him by his father. But before he could go thru the steps of claiming his estate, he is kidnapped. He go thru all sorts of obstacles, some that threaten his life, before finally arriving safely at the attorney's office where he is finally able to lay claim to his inheritance.
I'm not sure if it was this particular narrator or if it was the story itself, but I had some trouble staying engaged with the story. I did enjoy his Scottish accent, & he did do a fine job of narrating, so maybe I found the story a bit slow. Either way, it was a nice story, but I probably would've seek out the next book in the series.
Age recommendation: 14 & up (kidnapping, bad family relationships, higher-level topics estates & inheritance)
On a scale of 1-10 stars, I give it 5.
Stevenson’s superb descriptive ability is on demonstration here. While the plot is not as well draw and the adventure and the twist and turns not as compelling as Treasure Island, it is still a worthwhile and interesting read – especially from a historical prospective of the political events that are undrerlying the novel.
Very well done narration!
Like most of Stevenson's writing "Kidnapped" is pretty easy to follow and full of adventure. To be honest, I prefer "Treasure Island" to "Kidnapped" but the latter is certainly an excellent story.
