    "Kidnapped"

    Great Book! More like listening to a play, very intense and gripping tale of a young lad who refuses to lay aside his morals. In spite of all that has happened to him. So this book was not only very entertaining, it was one of those few books that has a great moral behind the story, such as many of the books of yesteryear. I enjoyed it very much and the dramatization was done very professionally.

    "Hard to understand."

    Dramatization is a good idea, but there is a lot of background noise in the recording, which makes listening difficult and frustrating. The story is enticing, but I kept feeling like I should just read the book so I can actually get better comprehension. I gave 3 stars because I would give 1-2 for the actual recording (not recommended for listening while driving--way too much background noise) and 4-5 for quality of actual story.
    Would recommend trying to get a different recording.
