I read "Black" in print. I couldn't put it down. But I was hesitant to switch to audio for "Red". What a relief! And what a joy! The story was every bit as exciting and spellbinding as the first book. The characters are interwoven so elegantly. Hardly "paper-thin" by any stretch. Half-way through hearing "Red" I caught myself spending much time contemplating the relationships between characters and their likely evolutions. I began thinking of them almost as actual people, not characters in a story, and the events as real happenings in the world. I actually worried about these people. Ha!
The narration was quite good. That, also, was a relief. My only concern with the reader is that he seemed to confuse or accidentally exchange the characters' voices from time to time during fast-paced dialogue. It didn't really detract from the experience, but it was noticeable.
I won't bother flipping through "White" in the book store. I'm going to download the audiobook tomorrow!
