    How do you find the audio books? I think i saw it on amazon as an audio book. I like it though its a cool theme how hes wrote it, like middle eastern sort of setting, camels, deserts and so on. Maybe an audio book would be somthing good to try next, i got some stuff on my phone, but thats just positive speeches i play in the morning, its like part of my breakfast now

    Positive speeches??

    I love audiobooks. It's lovely having someone read to you and, someone who can bring a story to life! I get mine from audible.com for 8 a month (one book a month). I read too, so this suits me.

    I loved this book! I picked it up from a communal book shelf in a youth hostel one afternoon. Thought I'd spend a couple of nights on it but instead just spent the whole afternoon consumed in it. I'm actually going to reread it because of this thread; I enjoyed it that much. What did you think of it once you'd finished it, darrrren? I need to refresh my memories of the best parts then I'll come back to the thread!

    I've read it a fair while back. I think that I need to reread it.
