Best books of the series even though different narrator. The first four books were good. I love the character of Roland and his back story but as whole have been disappointed with his lack of action. This books story made up for it.
Not sure how much more money Frank wanted but the change in narration absolutely ruins it for me. You would think part of the interview process would be... So let me hear your narration of their voices. Not even sure I'm going to buy the hard copy. Super disappointing. Mr king please, please, please take your loss and redo.
King's gifted story telling is profoundly enhanced by the voice and life Frank Muller imbued into the work. Where King's talent forms ideas into characters, Muller's forms the characters into people.
It cannot be said that book V of the Dark Tower lacked any aspect of what enchanted readers from the very first words of "The Gunslinger." George Guidall is among the greatest his profession has seen and he, like Muller before him, adds his unquestionable ability to King's story, creating a new and unique piece of art that is no longer wholly the authors and is not originally the reader's. It is not the same as Muller but it is not, necessarily, WORSE than Muller's. To say book V was less entertaining or enjoyable than it's predecessors because of Muller's absence is a ridiculous mislabeling; Guidall's performance is disappointing ONLY in that it is not Muller's. Any listener who appreciates two artists performing at the pinnacle of their art will acknowledge this work as what it is: simply brilliant.
the book was perfect as the whole series Dark Tower books are. keep going Stephen.
