    In this spirited and romantic saga, a young heir named David Balfour meets his miserly uncle Ebenezer, who has illegally taken control of the Balfour estate. Ebenezer kidnaps David and plots to have him seized and sold into slavery on a ship to the Carolinas. A couple of days into the voyage, a shipwreck throws David together with David Break, a Scotsman returning from political exile in France, and the two of them journey together.

    Kappavpi says: "Great story, great reader."
    "Such Immediacy"
    Overall

    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.

    It's June 1941, and the low point of the war. England throws wave after wave of RAF bombers across the Channel, but somehow the Luftwaffe is able to shoot them down at will. The skies, indeed, the war itself seem to belong to Hitler.

    C. McCoy says: "An Outstanding Spy Novel"
    "Excellent listen"
    Overall

    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.
