really enjoyed the story, some people thing S.K. drones on a lot, but i listen to this at work and can go through 3/4 of my shift before i have to change to some music.
george guidall is good, but he is no Frank Muller. the voices he does for the characters are all the same, its hard sometimes to keep track of who is saying what.
Finished the 5th book. Forgot that this was the one he starts breaking the 4th wall. Now I can't decide if I want to take a break or go right into the next one.
This is the first of the final three books in the series and stands alone as Steve King channels Sergio Leone in a story where the gunslingers pause in their quest for the Tower to help a village reclaim its dignity in the face of oppressive raiders who will come to steal their children. It is a thrilling page-turner in which King mostly abandons his "King of Horror" reputation in favor weaving a tale that lets us get to know the ka-tet of the 99 and watch them fill out their personalities and characters as they prepare themselves for the journey ahead. Still, a demon lurks behind this story as Suzanna begins to worry about the consequences of her encounter in the Speaking Ring in Wastelands. It is a terriffic story.
story is good. just don't like the narrators voices. I like the other one in the last novel of this series.
slowest yet, by far, of the dark tower series. all of the characters felt and sounded so different from Frank Muller's far superior reading. the wolves were built up for 20 hours only to leave me feeling disappointed. they were unworthy adversaries in every way. some cool parts I guess, but overall very disappointing. meh.
Excellent story but a bit slow and drawn out where as preceeding book in this series were "sitting on the edge of your seat" type books.
I can't wait for next book (right now!).
