Publisher's Summary

The attempt at murder failed. Risking everything to keep young David Balfour from his just inheritance, his wicked uncle has him kidnapped - condemning his nephew to seven long years of slavery in the Carolinas. However, on the way, David runs into one of the greatest characters in English Literature: Alan Breck Stuart. These two heroes band together, and before he knows it, David finds himself embroiled in political intrigues that chase him across the wild Scottish Highlands.

    "Wow! A great Value!"

    I was skeptical because of it's $3.95 price but was pleasantly surprised. Good quality and good narrator. I'm sure there are better narrators but for the price, wow!

    "Quality narration at a great price"

    At less than $4, this audiobook is a real bargain. Fantastic performance by the B.J.Harrison, who also narrates the "Classic Tales Podcast".

    "Excellent naration and a great story!"
    If you could sum up Kidnapped in three words, what would they be?

    Engaging, historical adventure. Very few narrators are as smooth and accurate as B. J. Harrison, fantastic performance with some difficult material to vocalize especially with the alternate languages and national accents required for an excellent, single person dramatization. Very well done.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Engaging and an interesting view into mid 18th century life.


    What about B. J. Harrison’s performance did you like?

    Excellently smooth and dynamic performance with difficult material.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Tremendous value!
