Abercrombie is the most vital voice in fantasy fiction today. He writes excellent action, his characters are fresh and he _gets to the point_ of the story without resorting to 1000 page endless epics.
If you're tired of seeing 'Sci-Fi & Fantasy' titles on Audible and other online book stores that are thinly disguised furry romance fiction, do your bit for the genre and pick up 'Best Served Cold'.
The narration isn't the best - hopefully they'll pop for a more enjoyable reader for future Abercrombie titles. The world of 'Best Served Cold' may be a dark, unpleasant place but that doesn't mean the narration needs to be dark and unpleasant.
I like John Lee way-way-way better than Dotrice. The smoother voice - yes, less character - is a hell of a lot easier to listen to for hours on end. He nails the characters as well - Gendry and Sam off the top of my head. If anything I hope they pony up for Lee to go back and record the first three books.
