Now I get to find out what happens next.
The above was written after finishing the third audiobook in the series. At the time I was disingenuine about whether I'd read or listened to a given book; that has since changed in an effort to be more authentic. I believe that there are strict differences between consuming a print book and an audiobook, and the quality of both experiences depends a lot on environment and method of intake. That, I suppose, is a topic for an essay. Regardless, I listened to those three entries in Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire and stopped there. If you don't know what happened with the television show, I won't spoil it for you.
