William Dorrit has been a resident of the Marshalsea debtors prison for so many years that he has gained the nickname The Father of the Marshalsea. However, his suffering is eased by his close bond with youngest daughter Amy, or Little Dorrit.

The dashing Arthur Clennam, returning to London after many years in China, enters their lives and the Dorrits' fortunes begin to rise and fall. A biting satirical work on the shortcomings of 19th-century government and society. Download and start listening now!

    " My favorite Dickens novel. Sprung from his own experiences of debtors' prisons, this is not only an endearing love story, but a social commentary that contributed to prison reform. No one can match Dickens' turn of phrase, and the delightful annoyance of Mrs. General had me rolling with laughter. To this day I can still find use for the phrase "prunes and prism". While this novel employs Dickens' signature use of dues ex machina and improbable coincidence, none of that detracted from the twisting plot and the memorable characters. Will definitely be a staple on my reading list for years to cone. "

    " I liked Little Dorrit very much. It is very close to the recent PBS version which I had just watched (and which is excellent by the way). I wanted to compare the movie to the book. They are essentially the same. It's not my most favorite Dickens book, but very enjoyable. The supporting characters were my favorites: Pancks, Affery, John Chivery, Fanny and Mr. Sparkler, Maggy, Rigaud (a sufficiently evil villan), and especially Flora (sometimes I find myself running on like Flora. LOL) and Mr. F's Aunt (what a hoot!). A great blend of humor, intrigue and lovable characters as in all of Dicken's books. "

    " I should qualify my rating: Little Dorrit gets a Dickens-three-stars rating, which differs from a regular three-stars rating in that I will undoubtedly like a Dickens book with a three-star rating more than any other book to which I give a three-star-rating. But Dickens is one of my favorites, and so while I did enjoy it -- come on, Charlie, this is fine but I know you can do better! "

    " Got bored. Little Dorrit is a wet who isn't worth the trouble. "
