I was quite disappointed in this book. I thoroughly enjoyed Dr. Jekyll and Treasure Island, but I was bored to death with this book. The story was interesting, but the pace was painful. While at the library looking for this book, I found a graphic novel of Kidnapped and read it after reading this and it was about the perfect pace and still told the important parts of the story.

As well, the hero was completely unapproachable and I never sympathized with him.

One redeemable quality of this book was that it piqued my interest in the history of Scotland and the warring clans.
