Dominik (gristlemcnerd) | 113 comments I came across this handy guide while leafing through my (very old and beat up) copy of the book, and since I don't know if it's in newer editions and I do know how much our hosts appreciate them, I thought I'd share it here.

Tina (javabird) | 602 comments Thanks for posting that. I like to see how names are spelled when listening to audiobooks. (I wish audiobooks would include a pdf download the spellings.)

John (Taloni) Taloni (johntaloni) | 3076 comments Gotta say, having "Kharamough" not rhyme with "Scaramouche" is wreaking havok with my takeoff "Snowqueenian Rhapsody."

I see a little shock of red hair on a Sparks
Kharamough! Kharamough! Can you do the star bucking
Summer Queen is rising, future's tantalizing, me!
Sybil talking (Sybil talking) Sybil talking (Sybil talking) Sybil talking of the past. Snow Queen must go-o-o-o-o
.....
I'm just a half-breed, nobody loves me
He is a half-breed, from a high family
Spare him his fate from from his actions at sea!

Yes, me too! It’s handy having a spelling guide for audiobook listeners! I sometimes struggle when discussing books I’ve only read in audio format because the names look totally different from how they sound.

I think all the names sound alike in the audible version so I thought this was hilarious!
