Not better but easier to find time
Blaine is a pain
Roland because ka demands it
A diehard Stephen King constant reader. Enjoy horror, fantasy, and science fiction books.
The pace of this book. I remember reading this many years ago and I read it in 2 days. With the cliffhanger I was left wanting Wizard and Glass way before it was released. Sai King's mean trick with this ending. But I love when authors leave you begging for more.
The entire City of Lud sequence. Suspense and action all in one. Loved it.
Sai Muller was a master orator and has brought an amazing auditory experience to a masterfully written series.
The ka-tet's journey begins.
Muller was the rare reader who elevated the story beyond its content. While I'm a huge fan of the Dark Tower series it's no coincidence that the books I enjoyed most were the audio versions Mr a Muller performed, I've read all the books and listened to all the books as well. My reading to myself never was as enjoyable as Muller's renditions. This is a good story that moves the characters along. I really begin to care quite a bit about them and they feel like friends by the end of this book.
Not sure I can think of one. It's not derivative despite taking place in a setting that feels post apocalyptic and that's been done so frequently. King creates a unique world though that makes the whole Dark Tower series unique and wonderful world with a fascinating mythology.
It's among his best. My favorite is probably Wizard and Glass but he's my favorite audio book reader ever. There isn't a close second,
Why would I want to do that?
Love my family....along with guitars, cameras, and a good book!
The third installment of the Dark Tower series....The Waste Lands....is a continuation of the gunslinger's quest to reach the Dark Tower, to climb to the top, and to right what is going so wrong with the worlds. I love the richness that King has created in the vivid descriptions of Mid-World. I felt as if it was a childhood homeplace that I didn't remeber specifically, but that still felt like home. The development of the Eddie and Susannah characters was shot into high gear in this book, and I came to love them nearly as much as Roland. It was also great to pick up on the story of Jake, and what happened to him after Roland let him fall in book 2.
I felt that the truest parts of this epic tale took place in Mid-World, and this chapter of the overarching story delivers big time on that "where and when". The City of Lud came alive, and both the condition of the once great city, as well as the people that still lived there, was something that will haunt my waking dreams. There are more characters than those that are "living" in this tale, and Blaine the Mono is one of the most frightening characters that King has created. Their interaction with the Mono is one of the highlights of this book.
Frank Muller delivers another outstanding performance. He is truly the master of this genre, and his voices are consistant as well as spellbinding. Bravo, Mr. King!
Say something about yourself!
No time to catch your breath in this one! From one crazy moment to the next you have no time to guess what will happen next and at the same time can't wait for it to be revealed.
I still love Frank Muller as a reader. The story on the other hand felt like the weakest of the series. With that being said the series as a whole is fantastic.
Out of all the characters Frank Mueller brings to life, Gasher was my favorite. Kind of hated to see him die, even though he was a right bastard. Wery purt.
This is one of the few books that i have listened to a second time. The characters are complex and endearing, the story line ever changing.
I have listend to most of the dark tower series and his performance is stellar
Like Kings “Fire Starter” , “The Waste Lands” Kicks you in the butt and drags you across Mid world so fast you can not catch your breath.
The Gasher Man. Had a way with words.
He is the BEST. Went to WaveDancer Foundation in New York.. We lost a great talent. Respect to his family. If you put in Frank Mullers name as a search he did great works on all the books he did. Very sad and I miss him. Was like a friend telling me the story. Did voices, inflections and what ever else he felt would carry the story. God Bless
Hard question when you take the stooges out of the equasion. I would like to take Murcy. She could spin a tail.
Just that this was the first book of the series that I read. Then went to 1 and 2. I beleave If i had tryed 1 the 2 in order with out reading 3, I do not beleave I would have finished them. As I say 3 draws you in and gets you to care about these people. 1 and 2 are long prologs. With out the feeling i got from book three I would not care about the back storey, or the prolog of how the band met. went 3,1,2,3 (enjoyed just as much as the first reading), 4. no other books out soon due to , well , you know. so I read 3 again then 1,2,3,4 and by then 5 was soon to come out.
have read or listened to each book 5X or More. Book 3 I would say 8X at least.
In the pursuit of great entertainment!
The Dark Tower Series has made it to the top of the list of favorite audiobooks. The excellent story was enhanced by great narration. I most definitely recommend this 3rd book in the series.
