Maggie: A Girl of the Streets is a ground breaking novel relating to the precarious state of women in the new industrial world at the end of the 19th century.

Would you try another book from Stephen Crane and/or Deaver Brown?

Based on this book, I might not read any other books from this author.

Would you recommend Maggie: A Girl of the Streets to your friends? Why or why not?

Probably not. The story is hard to follow and concentrate on due to the language and dialogue between the characters.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator was terrible and made several mistakes when reading. He replaced words several times/said the wrong thing and would not read fluently. He also made it overall boring.

What character would you cut from Maggie: A Girl of the Streets?

It's hard to say what character I would cut; in my opinion everything was quite boring.

Any additional comments?

Please find a new narrator. This narrator was terrible and makes it not worth the price.
