Would you consider the audio edition of The Devil in the Marshalsea to be better than the print version?
Who was your favorite character and why?
I liked both the naive but brave and resourceful narrator and his enigmatic cell mate, Fleet. They reminded me a bit of Davy and Long John Silver in Treasure Island.
Any additional comments?
This was a an atmospheric novel which also had plenty of suspense and twists and turns. I thought it was very well written and researched. Who knew that the old Marshalsea operated like a kind of concentration camp, killing poor people through brutality and starvation in the plain centre of London? Unlike the previous reviewer, I didn't find it at all repetitive, though that's often a criticism I make of audiobooks. I thought the narrator was great and didn't mind the sound effect either!

If you could sum up The Devil in the Marshalsea in three words, what would they be?
gripping, atmospheric, detailed
What didn’t you like about Joseph Kloska’s performance?
good story, but too many repeats of narration which weren't deleted, lack of editing became annoying through the course of the book
