This is an excellent continuation of the Gunslinger series. Stephen King brings all of the chacters together in this continuing story in an artful and dramatic manner. It doesn't hurt to have Frank Mueller doing the narrating.
Yes, badass. Reminds me of me.
Roldand. Badass, reminds me of me.

This book was excellent and could stand alone from the other books in the series. Frank Muller's range of characters was fantastic, I am greatly saddened by the fact that he was not able to complete the series. It was nice to see how our hero Roland Deshane became the man we all love (not to mention how the ca-tet stops Blaine the Mono).
outstanding multiple story lines. Great performance. Easy bonding and identification with characters. Great twists! Must read for King fan
I loved the story when I read it myself years ago, but Frank Muller makes this story come alive in ways I've not encountered in any other audiobook to date. He uses different voices for the dialog for each character and manages to to it in a way that's not campy or cheesy. This ahs lead to a level of story immersion that I've not experienced before. I'm actually really disappointed that he's not the narrator for the next three books in the series (although the other narrator is no slouch as far as that goes).
I really enjoyed this one, lots of Character development and some of the best narration I have heard since "IT" Frank does such a good job. The storyline is amasing. Truely one of my Fav, Keep up the good work Mr King

While this book was less crazy emotional, it was more raw emotional for me. It wasn't all insanity like books 1-3. This book started with the craziness of trying to escape Blane the Mono, but it spent most of it's time tending to one of Roland's dark tales of his youth between ages 12-14 after he won the guns of his father and was sent West with 2 friends. When you think you have heard all the heart break you can handle, there is more awaiting in the palace of what looks to be The Wizard of Oz, but I won't spoil that. This book explains Roland more to the readers and I only love him more now. He shows a vulnerability that further connects his Ka-tet of Eddy, Suze, Jake and Oy. Amazing writing. Great narration. This is a MUST LISTEN series.
I read these books when i was younger and loved them. Listening to them this time has been a true joy. Stephen talks down this series but i think it is the background for all his work! Muller does a great job with this piece.
Although this was actually my least favorite book of the series, it was still very excellently narrated and written. I found this one a little "slower" or dryer than the others in that there was more downtime during exciting parts.
Nonetheless, excellent voice acting and an excellent story. Always makes me want the next one right away!
