This is a great listen for any age. It grabbed my attention from the first and didn't let go. I will eagerly buy and listen to the other three in the trilogy! The narration is really well done, offering a distinct set of voices, excellent modulation and really nicely paced. The story is gripping and scary and sometimes even funny. It offers excellent characters of depth. You really care about what happens to them - even the bad ones!
I recently finished "Found," the first of the "Missing" series. It's also for young people (which I am not, but find some youth publications to be very good.) I rated it poorly and returned it because it is exactly the opposite of "Gideon the Cutpurse." There is just no comparison.
One of the best parts of this book was the history of the era in which Peter and Kate find themselves (1763) when life was dirty, dangerous and difficult. I love that it gives young people such a delightfully fun way to learn about this other era and I suspect that, for many, it might spark a lifelong interest in learning about how people live in these "other whens."

I bought this book just because I like time travel novels, and I think it was a cut above the usual story. It really rolls along and you can't help but get caught up in it. Good reading for anyone from nine to ninety.
