I love a good classic, well-read. Frederick Davidson is one of my favorite readers - he gets every accent just perfect. That is exactly the downfall of this audiobook - lots and lots of totally unintelligible Scottish accent-REALLY unintelligible. I have never read this book, was not familiar with the story at all. After six hours, I quit in frustration because I had lost so much of the plot. IF you know the story, IF you are good at deciphering Scottish accent (and I mean HEAVY, not Star Trek Scotty) then go for it. Otherwise, pass on this version of Rob Roy.

Starts slowly and becomes a fascinating tale of adventure and love. It captures the feeling of Scottish history and the social tensions of the time. Listened to it on a trip to Scotland and the understanding of the social stresses of the 18th century and the pleasure of listening to a darn good yarn added immensely to the trip. Heartily recommend this audiobook.
