Publisher's Summary

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. They are witnesses to the murder of Colin Campbell, the "Rio Fox" of Glenure, and suspicion falls on them. What follows is a perilous journey across the Highlands. Kidnapped is a classic of high adventure.

Great story, great reader.

This classic tale is full of interest, suspense and adventure that you will find quite enjoyable. Furthermore, it is read by one of the best dramatic readers who brings the characters to life with perfect accents.

One of my favorites...

I listened this some 5 years ago. I love the story, both in written form, audibly and two of the movies. Its timeless.

Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson

I thought this was excellent. Didn't speak a word of Gaelic but hoot hoot I've nae doubt picked up a few reading this. The voices are brilliantly done (though our hero David Balfour can sound a little shrill at times) and the narration is clear and strong, making the quite complicated history easy to follow, though I did have to rewind a few times to get some of the names! My favourite bit was David after a shipwreck stuck on a little outcrop in the stormy sea, it's cold and raining and he has neither shelter nor food and is desperate to get away. I was right there with him!
