Kidnapped is an adventure story in which the tensions run deep, not only between pursuer and pursued, but in ancient misunderstandings between the two heroes themselves: Whig and Jacobite, Lowland rationalist and romantic Highlander.

An old broad that enjoys books of all types. Would rather read than write reviews though. I know what I like, and won't be bothered by crap.
It's in the middle, fun short listen. It's a story of a boy who goes to his uncle, who decides to have him kidnapped and put on a ship for America so that the uncle can keep his estate. The ship is wrecked and David meets a Scotsman named Allen Breck Stuart who helps him and gets him involved in clan warfare.
David is shipwrecked alone on an island and wonders why all the books he's ever read about being marooned on an island, the person always has a useful bag to use to survive. His adventures are always interesting and exciting.
Allen Breck Stuart was a rogue and a good guy all put into one. He was a very fun character. Mr. Page sometimes reminded me of the voices from Dudley Do Right cartoons which could be distracting.
Family is not always best.
Best: Brings back a lot of childhood memories.
Least: There were a lot of parts that seem quite slow.
The family dynamic/dysfunction.
The dialog when the main character was being rescued from the island.
Yes it was for sure.
