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

    trials, training, revenge


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Green?

    spoiler alert... the death of the Ghost King guy


    Which character – as performed by Katherine Kellgren – was your favorite?

    The catwoman, her name escapes me at the moment.


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

    I listen to the while working, so I finished it in two work days,


    Any additional comments?

    This is a book I added at random. I think this book falls into the category of an epic, by the true definition not by the more recent overused one. Lots of interesting characters, travel, vivid details of landscapes, etc. I loved that. The numerous sexscenes seemed oddly out of place to me, but they didn't offend me or anything. The part where the wicked priest says "The boy had the ass of an angel" was a little awkward but whatever. I'll probably read the other two books.
