This book was incredibly hard to get through. It's necessary to understand Roland story in order for us to continue the journey to the Dark Tower. But in all honesty, no one has broken my heart like Stephen King just did.
The book, read by King himself, gives more information about howRoland came to be on his path to the Tower. King does an excellent job in wrapping the reader (listener) into the story. Highly recommended!
couldn't put this down, unbelievably detailed and vivid, the dark tower series is absolutely Stephen kings master work. this is my third time through the series this time through I will be listening to wind through the keyhole next. I will say it is awful going from the narration of a master like frank muller to the voice of Stephen king.....they may be his words but they sound so much more life-like coming out of the mouth of muller. frank muller did a superb job for wizard and glass, I highly recommend it.
Why the complaints? I loved learning about the young Roland. I want to soak up every morsel of information pertaining to characters I have invested so much time getting to know. Huge epic stories deserve such attention to detail. Kudos to King for delivering such a great tale to his faithful followers.
Mostly backstory but incredibly well done. I loved Roland's love story of Susan Delgado. At first I kept thinking, can we get this over with and get back to Kansas?? But before long I was drawn in. Nobody writes it like Stephen King, and nobody tells it quite like Frank Muller. :)
