Présentation de l'éditeur

In 'Kidnapped' (1886) and later fiction such as 'The Master of Ballantrae' (1888), Stevenson examined some of the extreme and contrary currents of Scotland's past, often projecting a dualism of both personality and belief. This dualism is most famous in 'Kidnapped', whose two central characters are David Balfour, a Lowland Whig, and Alan Breck Stewart, a Highland Jacobite. The novel revolves around their friendship and their differences, suggesting a metaphor for Scotland itself. Stevenson wrote the sequel 'Catriona' with the title 'David Balfour', but during serialisation in England the public became confused, thinking it might be a reprint of 'Kidnapped'. At publisher Cassell's request, the title was changed to 'Catriona', after Balfour's daughter. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

On voit bien qu'il s'agit d'un livre d'occasion, mais il est parfaitement acceptable, à la différence de beaucoup d'autres dans le même cas

HASH(0x8f731e04) étoiles sur 5 Practically Unknown Sequel to Kidnapped is Terrific 13 février 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This combination of Kidnapped and it's sequel by World Books was fantastic. I never thought of Kidnapped having a sequel until I found this book. I realized how quickly and abruptly the ending was to Kidnapped and all of a sudden it fit. World Books made the stories easy to read. They had quotes, explanations, a mini encyclopedia, and a dictionary of Scottish words in the back for the use of the reader, and this being the second time that I read Kidnapped, I got a lot more out of it this time. I recommend that everyone to read these books. Catriona is a love story that really draws you in, and won't let you go

HASH(0x9043a288) étoiles sur 5 David Balfour had self-awareness 17 juin 2005
Par Sarah - Publié sur
Format: Broché
While sick with bronchitis, I listened to an unabridged recording of "Kidnapped." The story mixes politics, sea faring, abduction, and a mentor relationship all in one novel. When David griped to Alan about their predicaments and harangued Alan for his gambling, he knew he was being a jerk...this character was pretty self-aware in that capacity. I really liked the relationship between Alan and David, and the details of Alan's characterization--fastidious as a woman in his dress. The lawyer who assists David upon his return was funny in his self-preservation and technicalities---"I am near-sighted and forgot my glasses." (He will not be able to identify Alan if plans backfire since Alan is mixed up in politics and a murder scandal.) I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading "Treasure Island" soon.

HASH(0x9043a2ac) étoiles sur 5 "Kidnapped" - WOW! , "Catriona" - Meh.... 30 mars 2010
Par glad2bdada3 - Publié sur
Kidnapped is one of my favorite books. Perhaps that's why Catriona didn't do much for me. To me, it read as the typical sequel to a great story. It just doesn't have the punch and thrills of Kidnapped. The prose of course is excellent, though there is far more scottish lingo than the 1st book. This makes it a bit of a struggle to get through. I don't think I'd recommend it, especially after reading Kidnapped, unless someone has a real passion for Scottish literature.
HASH(0x9043a270) étoiles sur 5 Both books are wonderful! 3 janvier 2013

"Kidnapped" is an amazing action/adventure story. Lowland Whig,David Balfour,becomes a man with the help of highland jacobite, Alan Breck Stewart."Catriona" picks up right where "Kidnapped" left off. This book is an adventure/romance. We see David trying to clear Alan Breck of the Appin murder, and David try to win highland lass, Catriona. This book is not as action filled as "Kidnapped",but is still an excellent story. Great for tweens and older.

HASH(0x9043a6fc) étoiles sur 5 Two enthralling adventures from Stevenson 27 mars 2005
Par Michael Fridman - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Both of these books are part of Stevenson's historical adventures that are often considered to be great as children's books but can be just as easily read by adults. In Kidnapped, the orphaned narrator finds himself deprived of his inheritance by his bastardly uncle, who after having failed to kill him arranges his kidnapping. However, on the boat, his character begins to show as he leads a mutiny and escape with Alan, a man he befriends on the ship. They find themselves in the political and military turmoil of the Jacobite conflict Scotland, and in their wanderings encounter much danger, intrigue and hardship. Catriona is the sequel, where the narrator falls in love with a lady whose father is less than honourable, adding a sustained romance to the melting pot of events.

Stevenson's narration and style may not be as classically topical and atmospheric like Scott's historical novels, however these two are a good read with fast-paced adventure and intrigue with the troubles of Scotland and greater Europe in the background.
