So, feedback on the non-audio portions.
Overall, it was great. I listened to it a second time and it was even better. Knowing who the characters were during the intro really added a lot to the understanding of where I'd like to think you're going with the plot. Of course, you'll probably screw with us and throw several wrenches into the mix. Because that's what you do.
I did have one misgiving about the narrating, though. When you were introducing The Five Rooms, it felt like you switched voices for a moment. You refer directly to the readers as "my friends", then, in mentioning the torture, you broke into the first person, saying "We'll get to that". It threw me off for a moment.
Still, great work; I can barely wait for more of the new book. Keep those always-on-time updates coming! Oh, and kudos on the scissors. I know it was blatant junkie-service, but I think that just made it better.
