At work I learn new things and have adventures while listening to many books and podcast.
I love the way after each chapter the surge leaves a cliff hanger. The reader really cares about this story with his voices and sounds to help guide you threw and visually see everything. I follow along at work and threwout the story I will scream or cry and my co workers think I'm nuts.
In the past couple months I've listened to the first three books in A Song of Ice and Fire. I've enjoyed all of them and intend to continue the series. But this book was a clear favorite, starting strong and only getting better as it went along. I've watched five seasons of Game of Thrones as well, and the differences, whether subtle or pronounced, are a big part of what made this book so enjoyable. The development of the plot and divergence from what the show was able to include made this book, and especially it's second half, a riveting read. Not many books can approach fifty hours and still have the reader/listener immediately wanting to pick up the next in the series without pause.
this is by far the best series of books I have ever read, or listened to in this case. and Roy does an amazing job with his voice to separate the characters.
