A great narrator can enliven a mediocre story, which is the case with SNATCHED! Even a listener with a seasoned ear for British regional accents must be impressed with Toby Longworth's ability to create unique individuals using only his voice. As the book follows a circus troupe through nineteenth-century England, Longworth carries the listener along with the adventures of Daniel, born in the lion's cage, who gets caught up in plots and intrigue involving kidnapping, arson, and betrayal. The story could be a lesser chapter in a Dickens novel, but this narrator elevates it to a suspenseful tale with vocal nuance and a high sense of drama.
