  1. You motherfuckers… I can’t listen to this until about 2017 when i’ve marathoned the whole trilogy because having to wait in between books will wreck my life. I have to be realistic about these things. Curse you for dangling this in front of me like a ripe, juicy blood orange.

    For a post that started with “You Motherfuckers” I thought that ended well. Glad you are interested and I’m sure if you listen to it you will forget everything about it by 2017. But I understand waiting until the series is over with.

  3. Since I know nothing about the plot of this book, anything could be a spoiler to these sensitive ears. So this one is going deep into the podcast vault for me, haha. And yes… ‘motherfuckers’ is a term of endearment.
