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.
Michael Page proves himself again as an enormously talented story teller. With each new audio book I am amazed at his accents and command of the text. The Scottish brogue delightfully, and shockingly I would add, transports you to the very setting of Stevenson's tale. Any RLS fan will be thrilled with this performance.
I'm a web developer based out of Sacramento, I listen to books while I work, and love audible.
This was a fun short read. Not much else. Treasure Island is much better and is the place to start.
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.
