Journal Entry 4 by LittleWhiteBird at Pasadena, California USA on Thursday, July 15, 2010

7 out of 10

The story was kind of interesting, but not as exciting to me as I had hoped, reading that "Kidnapped is considered by many to be the best book Stevenson ever wrote."
Maybe it was because I had to concentrate so much to understand Robbie Coltrane's accent (he's reading the audio book). Or maybe it was because those settings and names etc. were not really my cup of tea. Somehow, the ending of the story came quite abruptly. While checking out the story online after reading it, I discovered that the book has numbered chapters, it would have helped if they had been announced on the audio version. I discovered in the Wikipedia article about the novel http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kidnapped_%28novel%29 that it's set around real events and some of the people portrayed are real people. That in hindsight makes the novel more interesting to me.

Abridged; approximate running time: three hours on two audio cassettes.
