Can't wait to get back in the car

This book would be difficult for me to read. With the Scottish Colloquialisms, and style, I wouldn't get past the first 30 pages. Fortunately for me I didn't have to read it. The story is outstanding, and well worth hearing. The realism of the situations, and the depth of characters is what make this worth reading (hearing).

If you like a good old fashioned story, very well told, get this one.

A little brisk, but ultimately satisfying

I've listened to Ralph Cosham with pleasure doing nonfiction, but this was my first venture with him as a reader of classic fiction. His narration takes a little getting used to. I'm not quite sure how to describe the distinctive quality of his voice; his reading is a little faster and a little more formal than I've experienced with other readers. Yet he is, as one person described him here, "quietly effective." A particular pleasure here is the wonderful Scots dialogue. Of the three versions of "Kidnapped" I tried (the others being Frederick Davidson and Michael Page), this is definitely my favorite.
