Frederick Davidson's narration of this extraordinary story is so rich. I began listening to the book on my way to Scotland for a 10-day trip, and finished it back home. I wouldn't wanted to have experienced the book without the authenticity of Davidson's voice pronouncing the various Scots words and providing the emphasis precisely. The novel itself captures so much of Scotland's defining stories, the aftermath of the Jacobite Rebellion, the dispersed clans, the passion all Scots had and have for their region, stories and country. RLS's characters are so well drawn, complex and compelling. Highly recommend.
Hornet Flight is my first experience with Ken Follett, and came as part of a sustained documentary+film+book exploration of WWII that me and my 13-year-old son have been involved in. The great story is totally engrossing and the characters are believable and multidimensional. I thought the narrator was flawless, and added much to the feel of the story. My son pronounced it perhaps the best book he had ever "read" at the end of the last chapter. Highly recommend.
