Okay, so admittedly I have more criteria than what you'd normally expect. I am looking for the following:
- Something character-driven. That has to be priority #1. I'm just getting done reading a series with vivid characters that to me saves whatever other flaws it has (this being the Hunger Games trilogy). One of the issues I've had with fantasy in the past is that too often the characters are just cardboard cut-outs. So please recommend stuff to me from any genre by all means but understand that character is like my #1 thing, above good plotting, a fascinating milieu, a smart style, an interesting hook, and so on.
- Preferably fantasy or SF given what I just finished but again, I'm really, really open on that.
- Preferably preferably available on audiobook, since I don't have a lot of time right now to sit down and read stuff (I do, however, walk around all over the place and so have the time to listen).
Dance for me, SGU monkeys! DANCE!
