Young David after many adventures arrives finally in Edinburgh, Scotland to receive his fortune, he hopes. However being a few years after the Jacobite rebellion of , tension permeates, every man in the territory is under suspicion and especially Mr.
Balfour, who is still a wanted person, by the English The eighteen -year -old needs help David Balfour also known as Catriona is a sequel to the great classic Kidnapped though not as good, it still delivers excitement.
The eighteen -year -old needs help desperately, someone to prove he's innocent but how , to a murder charge First get the inheritance and with literally a bag of money in hand, he unexpectedly yet joyfully meets Catriona Drummond hence the title.
Granddaughter of the notorious Rob Roy in the streets of the glorious city, the capital of the Scottish nation, he naturally falls in love at first sight with the pretty girl.
You can guess if she returns the sentiment, yes you guessed right. Catriona's uncle had helped David escape the Red Coats, in his incredible harrowing journey with Alan Breck Stewart, across rugged Scotland.
More is in a bad situation in jail, also there Alan Breck Stewart James of the Glens going on trial soon for killing an important man, in fact the same case as David's.
Political events have made Stewart's conviction vital for the British, they don't care whether he shot Colin Campbell Glenure the dead man or not.
Glenure's clan, wants revenge and the English need their support in bringing peace here to this often distressed land.
A lawyer cautions the fugitive not to turn himself in to the authorities, without being free of charges. Like the ancient adage, a fool and his money are soon parted.
Of course nobody listens to an attorney and the boy doesn't either , naturally. Still he visits the powerful Lord Advocate Mr. Prestongrange, who seems more interested in the arrest of Alan Breck, then of him.
Let loose, but shortly afterwards captured by smugglers and held for ransom, a big pile of money they say, he is back on another isle off the Scottish coast.
Balfour has doubts, the real reason he believes is that he won't be a witness in the trial of Alan Breck Stewart, a man not known for his goodness, yet he is Catriona's uncle and at least not the murderer of Glenure David somehow, has to and needs to escape from these criminals, testify in court, before it's too late , see his friend Alan again and get that man out of Scotland His future happiness depends on this impossible task Good follow up to the original by the talented, maybe even the genius of Robert Louis Stevenson.
View all 8 comments. Content: profanity Lots of Scotch dialect in this one. Having read this through, I now see why so many of Stevenson's faithful panned this book.
It's predecessor, Kidnapped , was a 'story for boys', an action tale in the tradition of Sir Walter Scott. One thing I've always noticed about Kidnapped , though, is that it's also a Comedy of Manners.
David Balfour continually fails to understand his uncle, Allen Breck, and a vast host of others because they don't behave the way he expects.
Stevenson has especial fun, I think, with the fact that nearly all o Having read this through, I now see why so many of Stevenson's faithful panned this book.
Stevenson has especial fun, I think, with the fact that nearly all of these characters are Scottsmen, which outsiders probably lumped into one huge, cultural pile, whereas Stevenson continues to show the difference between Highlander and Lowlander.
Of course, he also shows the difference between those who believe the fine ideas they spout and those who simply spout them and then behave as they will, something David has trouble grasping at times, too.
Catriona continues in this vein, but almost completely abandons action, save for two, possibly three rather brief sequences, and plunges completely into the Comedy of Manners.
It's a rather good one, too—many of the characters are a bit 'stage' although some or not, but David has to learn to navigate worldviews with which he still, after all his lessons in the previous novel, has some problems.
Anyone who expects the near-constant peril of Kidnapped will likely be disappointed. Feb 20, K. Rereading R. It's way fun.
This one is not as good as David Balfour 1 "Kidnapped. Tons of Scots words. It's fun to try to decipher meaning, but so many of the words are actually just real Scots words that I have no knowledge of.
Thank goodness for the glossary in the back if one cares that much. Did enjoy, but the story isn't as compelling as "Kidnapped.
It is my excuse that we travelled exceeding fast. Some part we ran, some trotted, and the rest walked at a vengeance of a pace.
Twice, while we were at top speed, we ran against country-folk; but though we plumped into the first from round a corner, Alan was as ready as a loaded musket.
Not only that, but he expended some breath of which he had not very much left to curse his own misfortune and my stupidity which was said to be its cause.
I knew that he was quite unfit to be a husband who was not prepared to be a father also; and for a boy like me to play the father was a mere derision.
No, this isn't as good at Kidnapped. I fully admit to being a sap in saying that I enjoyed it, for it isn't the high-flying adventure story that the first book is - at all.
No, here we have Davie in loooooooove. I do think though that this book is still best for the connections it has to Kidnapped - whether it be David doing right by the people who helped him before, or the rare and wonderful appearances of Alan Breck.
And yet, even in this somewhat strained circumstances, I still liked him - an No, this isn't as good at Kidnapped. And yet, even in this somewhat strained circumstances, I still liked him - and her, as well.
I have mixed feelings about this book. It felt very little like Kidnapped. There isn't nearly the adventure. Yet, David is still a very lovable person who wants to do what is right no matter what situation he finds himself in.
There was also quite a bit of language in this story This audio version from Librivox wasn't well done, but it was free. View 1 comment.

Kidnapped is one of my favorites due to the Scottishness and the friendship between Davy and Alan Breck Stewart not to mention the character himself.
But in my mind, I consider Kidnapped and the sequel to be the same story, just chopped in half. David Balfour or, the title it was published under in England I believe, Catriona, referring to the heroine of the story picks up directly after Kidnapped ends, like… literally the same day if I remember right.
I mean, all the movie adaptions like to slip a girl into the Kidnapped story, so why not just read further to find it? Mostly Alan. Because Alan. It's pronounced 'Katrina' btw.
In that, it's less than a sequel as that part of the narrative is more social and political intrigue and description of David's character, than it is an action-adventure novel.
In fact, it turns into a very finely drawn romance. The description of Edinburgh, its environs at the time, and the run t It's pronounced 'Katrina' btw.
The description of Edinburgh, its environs at the time, and the run to the sea, and the incarceration on Bass Rock, is beautifully drawn.
I live close by, and found the historic touches and references, absorbing. The use of Scots language might be problematic to many, 'tho, and I'd advise non-natives to read it in a version with a good appendix for background explanation.
I had to refer to Google a couple of times. The second half of the novel is a romance, drawn with such a fine hand on the mores of the day, that it would do Jane Austin credit.
And from the male perspective to boot! It's an enchanting tale, and the depth of character, narrative, social and political history is stunning.
I'd love to see it adapted for moving image properly. It would make a great series, given the amount of small folks lives inter-mingled with greater moments in history.
Just don't watch the movie from the s with Michael Caine! It's nothing like either book! I was disappointed by this sequel to Kidnapped.
A big part of that is due to the large amount of Scots dialect used in this novel which was at times even worse in the audiobook edition as at least the Kindle book had footnotes on some of the obscure terms!
For example, "The solan keekit doon into Tam's face, and there was something unco in the creature's ee. Just the ae keek it gied, and back to the rope.
But now it wroucht and warstl't like a thing dementit. There never was the solan made th I was disappointed by this sequel to Kidnapped. There never was the solan made that wroucht as that solan wroucht; and it seemed to understand its employ brawly, birzing the saft rope between the neb of it and a crunkled jag o' stane.
I also found the adventure in this one less compelling and more far-fetched. View 2 comments. Nov 07, Kelsey Bryant rated it really liked it Shelves: preclassics.
This story picks up immediately where Kidnapped left off. Unfortunately, David and Alan have to separate, so we don't see much of Alan and therefore miss out on a lot of their fun camaraderie.
When they are together, the story shines with the first book's luster, so I wish there had been more scenes with them together. But David's story takes its own interesting twists as he gets embroiled in a political scandal and learns how to navigate society, becoming more of a man in the process.
We're als This story picks up immediately where Kidnapped left off. We're also introduced to another endearing character: Catriona, the sweet and brave daughter of a morally questionable Highlander.
Jun 13, Helen rated it liked it Shelves: fiction , historical-fiction , romance. It would seem that Stevenson was badgered to write a sequel to Kidnapped and finally gave in.
It is told, as Kidnapped was, in the first person and David really does go on and on about what he should do or say and how he feels and why.
Apparently he has never spoken to girls before and has no idea as to how their minds work, but I think that is partly because Stevenson doesn't really understand them.
Catriona comes across as a very Victorian miss with a chip on her shoulder and Miss Barbara Gran It would seem that Stevenson was badgered to write a sequel to Kidnapped and finally gave in.
Catriona comes across as a very Victorian miss with a chip on her shoulder and Miss Barbara Grant, Prestongrange's daughter is very strange and flighty.
It is difficult to write a novel about recent times and was only a hundred years before Stevenson was writing so he had to be careful about what he had historical people do and say.
The Appin trial was clear in everyone's minds so David couldn't be allowed to upset the event with his testimony.
I'm not sure why he connected David to the McGregors, a wild and nasty bunch by all accounts, but I suppose that added a sort of frisson to the story.
Aside from the romance, which is really what the book is about, a sort of "How I Met Your Mother" narration, we find out what happened to Alan Breck, to James of the Glens, and to David as far as the estate of Shaws goes.
What we don't find out is what happened to David as far as his living went. He was studying law in Leydon but it doesn't sound as if he finished any course there so what did he become?
He wasn't the sort to just live off his principal, so what did he do? Study in Scotland? Did he become an advocate or what? Stevenson just drops the narration as if he was just tired of the whole thing, which he may have been.
I enjoyed it alright, although there were times when Catriona just infuriated me and David too. One very personal note. They're beautiful books with unforgettable illustrations, especially the Wyeth ones, full of romance and uplifting aspirations.
It was like revisiting my childhood to read this and brought back memories of my father reading Robin Hood to us. Apr 02, Rrshively rated it really liked it.
I read this book because I couldn't leave Davie of Kidnapped dumped by the linen company with no explanation and no solution to many of his problems.
It seemed as if Kidnapped had abruptly stopped in the middle of a story. I am probably the only person in the world who likes this book better than Kidnapped.
I like stories nicely drawn up to an ending; I think I like love stories better than adventure; and I just plain enjoyed the story. I must admit that I didn't understand some of the Scottish I read this book because I couldn't leave Davie of Kidnapped dumped by the linen company with no explanation and no solution to many of his problems.
I must admit that I didn't understand some of the Scottish dialect and that some of the legal aspects of the first of this book left me a little at sea.
At any rate, here is a person to endorse this book. However, do not read this until you have read Kidnapped first.
This is the distant follow up to Kidnapped and finds Balfour travelling to Scotland where he meets and falls for the lovely Catriona while trying to free a man charged with murder.
In doing so he manages to get himself kidnapped again! Stevenson shows not only his skill at weaving a good adventure tale but also his skills at developing a romantic angle that doesn't overtake or overwhelm the sense of adventure and carefree This is the distant follow up to Kidnapped and finds Balfour travelling to Scotland where he meets and falls for the lovely Catriona while trying to free a man charged with murder.
Stevenson shows not only his skill at weaving a good adventure tale but also his skills at developing a romantic angle that doesn't overtake or overwhelm the sense of adventure and carefree living that dominates his work.
This is again a story for younger adults but taps into the changing views regarding love and romance. A great little read.
Kidnapped was fantastic. A rip-roaring thriller of its time across the highlands of Scotland. This, it's successor, is almost the opposite regarding genre.
It's a love story with some minor thrilling moments dotted here and there. I did enjoy it and glad I read it, but it was slow and took it's time and the lead character - David - became very frustrating, almost a simpleton in moments.
In the first book, we went through his experiences with him and in this we despaired at his arrogance and stup Kidnapped was fantastic.
