Tricked out of his inheritance, shanghaied, shipwrecked off the west coast of Scotland, David Balfour finds himself fleeing for his life in the dangerous company of Jacobite outlaw and suspected assassin Alan Breck Stewart. Their unlikely friendship is put to the test as they dodge government troops across the Scottish Highlands.
Set in the aftermath of the 1745 rebellion, Kidnapped transforms the Romantic historical novel into the modern thriller. Its heart-stopping scenes of cross-country pursuit, distilled to a pure intensity in Stevenson's prose, have become a staple of adventure stories from John Buchan to Alfred Hitchcock and Ian Fleming. Kidnapped remains as exhilarating today as when it was first published in 1886.
This new edition is based on the 1895 text, incorporating Stevenson's last thoughts about the novel before his death. It includes Stevenson's 'Note to Kidnapped', reprinted for the first time since 1922.

So it is with regret that I am leaving a one star review. In this instance, the story has been grossly let down by the poor production quality of this particular edition. The book I received was printed in UK for Amazon, and I can only describe it as cheep and unprofessional. Some of the issues I found were:
- a poorly formatted table of contents;
- chapters that started at different points on the page. Some ran concurrently with the previous chapter, while others started at the top of a new page (as they should);
- the first letter of the first word of each chapter was missing;
- the text was poorly laid out on many of the pages;
- the footnotes giving the meaning of some of the Scottish colloquialisms used, were placed randomly within the text itself rather than at the bottom of the page, and some were missing altogether;
All-in-all, this was a very poor quality edition and while I do not think any of the story was missing, I had lost confidence in the rendering of it within three chapters. Thankfully, I had bought it for myself, rather than as a gift, because I would have been ashamed to give a book of such poor quality to anyone as a present.

This version -
At that word, the captain and I and Mr. Riach all looked at each other for a 2d (sic) with a sort of worried look; and then Hoseason walked as much as his leader officer, took him by way of the shoulder, led him across to his bunk and bade him lie down and dose off, as you might communicate with a horrific baby.
Oxford World's Classics version-
At that word, the captain and I and Mr. Riach all looked at each other for a second with a kind of frightened look; and then Hoseason walked up to his chief officer, took him by the shoulder, led him across to his bunk, and bade him lie down and go to sleep, as you might speak to a bad child.
I will abandon the sport of looking for worse examples and stick to the Oxford World's Classics version!
Not sure if I will read other books from my childhood: can you still find Biggles?
