It is the greatest adventure story ever written, except perhaps for Treasure Island. To reread it broughtr back many happy memories. It is especially interesting to read it again as an adult, and perhaps, for the first time, understand Mr Rankeillor's forays into Latin maxims!
Kidnapped is fantastic to read,the story is gripping and the characters are exciting, and the story transports the reader to another time and place.
I am enjoying it. I read it when I was a child in Aberdeen and found it good. I am now older and live in Edinburgh. The places in the book are more interesting as I know some of them.
I hadn't read it for years so I enjoyed reminding myself of the exciting story
I prefer contemporary fiction so that was already a bit of a turn off for me, but then I just found the book to be very 'male'. I then started to imagine the book as a film and finding it a bit of a slog decided that I would just try and watch that one day instead. Lazy I know!
a great read- and good campaign to finally get me to read Stevenson
Having read this book before - many years ago at school it was good to read it again as an adult and experience the impact it had on me.
Excellent novel - well edited for children
It's interesting to read older Scottish literature, though I am keener on more modern Scottish works.
Always enjoyed and a good book to revisit
Kidnapped is totally page-turning, and dramatic. I was instantly drawn into the adventure, loved the larger than life characters and the vivid dialogue. As a writer, I learnt a lot from RLS about precision of language.
i thought the illustration were good. It was a different type of book to ones i normally read and i enjoyed as i change having started reading it thinking i wouldn't enjoy it.
I liked the references to Edinburgh and its surroundings. The book is also fast-paced and so keeps your interest.
The graphic adaptation was fab, the illustration were excelent
It's a great story and I bought the graphic novel version to see how well it tranlated into the new genre - it did!
It was good to revisit the book (stimulated by the event) and to rediscover its delights as a 'rattling good read'!
The format was easy to read and exciting
I couldn't get into the style of writing - I never seemed to get into the mood of the book.
It is a wonderfully told story, with fascinating historical and local detail.
Good story but better on TV
I am reading it with my P6 class. They are enjoying it as an adventure story-it links well with our last project on Jacobites!
Loved the graphic version; and surprised by my enjoyment of the novel - generally avoid Scottish writers - often too 'couthy' or defensively/deliberately 'Scottish' in language etc - usually can't be bothered!
I enjoyed it in parts but found some of the language challenging compared to modern novels. I'm glad that I tried - it's an important Scottish novel
Thought the graphic novel was great especially the Scots language version which I managed to read OK
