block writes far better than he reads

Would you consider the audio edition of The Merciful Angel of Death to be better than the print version?

no, but i'll listen to any scudder book or story, even those read by the master himself, lawrence block....

Who was your favorite character and why?

block's reading makes this almost impossible to answer...see below

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Lawrence Block?

prefer hammer and barrett....
foster and sklar ae secondaries
block's reading is too flat...doesn't differentiate characters clearly

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

no
