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 and her as well

Bank porter It was plain if I did so I should but set folk laughing and what was worse in my case set them asking uestions So that I behooved to come by some clothes of my own and in the meanwhile to walk by the porter's side and put my hand on his arm as though we were a pair of friend. Considering how popular Kidnapped is and a classic at that I’m extremely surprised how few people seem to know about andor have read the seuel 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 seuel 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 It deals with Davy’s adventures afterward including some wrapping up stuff from the first book Davy meeting a singular young woman and their story and Alan even returns for a couple adventures in the book It’s sometimes odd and I have a feeling while I’m reading it that most of the story goes over my head likely because it was written so long ago and Stevenson and authors like that were so genius but I still really enjoy it and consider it Kidnapped Part 2 myselfIt’s a shame people haven’t read it because Davy and Alan is awesome not to mention it’s neat that Davy finally finds love I mean all the movie adaptions like to slip a girl into the Kidnapped story so why not just read further to find it ; But it’s epicness and Scottishness and Alan so what is not to love Mostly AlanBecause Alan
