“No class of man is altogether bad, but each has its own faults and virtues.” Set during the background of the Jacobite Scot rebellion in the 18th century, R L Stevenson's historical adventure fiction, Kidnapped is inspired with characters from real life. David, a lowland teenage boy discovers that he is the right heir to a family fortune. Betrayed by his uncle, he is kidnapped into a sea voyage. Soon he teams up with Alan, a rogue, and encounters sea battles, shipwrecks, and perilous chases. The novel draws upon the themes of virtue, goodness, and courage, ultimately triumphing over evil and cunningness. Gripping throughout its course, Kidnapped is no wonder dubbed the 'all-time favourite' of adventure fiction lovers.
