FIERY CROSS in Audible's Tournament, Round 2
Diana Gabaldon's THE FIERY CROSS won the first round of Audible.com's Tournament of Audiobooks, 59%-41% over THE NIGHT CIRCUS, with well over 7,000 votes cast.
Second round voting in the tournament has now started. Round 2 pits THE FIERY CROSS against THE WISE MAN'S FEAR by Patrick Rothfuss.
The organizers of the tournament seem to have been a little taken aback by our get-out-the-vote campaign last week <g>, judging from the comments on the page listing the matchup between FIERY CROSS and THE WISE MAN'S FEAR.
We were taught at a young age that numbers don’t lie. Then we became older, and learned that statistics can be used to prove anything. Especially in the realm of fantasy, where these books live. Fear shows up with an overall rating equal to Cross and with way more overall pre-tourney votes, which should make it easy for Rothfuss and Podehl. Problem is, Gabaldon has a massive following. I learned from last week not to underestimate them as I watched them paint the court with Morgenstern’s impressive young squad.Everybody please take a moment to vote! Second round voting ends April 2nd. Thanks!
Prediction: It is wise to fear Gabaldon; Diana 57-43.
