If you could sum up Marching Powder in three words, what would they be?

Fascinating, thought provoking,eye opener on life in a Bolivian prison.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Thomas McFadden

What does Adrian Mulraney bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Perhaps a better picture and idea what Thomas McFadden went through

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If only I had had the time!

Any additional comments?

An amazing story of what life is like in San Pedro prison, unbelievable, a sad story but also inspiring that a man can survive all of that hardship & share his story. Thoroughly enjoyed this book and cannot believe that such things go on in a South American prison.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Would you consider the audio edition of Pablo Escobar to be better than the print version?

Cannot comment only heard the audio

What was one of the most memorable moments of Pablo Escobar?

I could not pick one moment in the book I found the whole book fascinating, his story is incredibly interesting, seeing the good the bad & the ugly side of this man.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

All of it, the story unfolded in such a way that I couldn't wait to listen to the next chapter and have a better understanding how Pablo Escobar practically ruled a country

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was surprised that I felt a little sad when Pablo Escobar was finally killed, I don't condone any of the grotesque things that he did, but the book gives a good incite on how corrupt the US was and the Columbian government and how they mirrored a lot of the things that Pablo Escobar did but did not have to answer to anyone!!

Any additional comments?

I would strongly recommend this book, I found it totally fascinating. 10/10
