I love this one because you get to meet Roland the teenager and his friends. He is amazing, as well as his old friends. You can compare them to his new friends. You also get to see part of what made him, and part of why he is the way he is " ALONE" .
I love frank muller. He does this story so much justice. I just wish audible had his audio recording for the entire series. Idk why they mix and mashed different readers. I think something is lost when you don't get the same person throughout. That aside the entire series is phenomenal and more than worth the time spent reading/listening
Thoroughly enjoying this series! It is just taking me so long to finish it. Always have a Stephen King book around to read when I'm ready to become deeply engrossed in a story.
I thought the switch in narrator was really jarring, but after moving on to the following DT books, I think this one suffered from being heavy on the lower-end frequencies. Loved the story. Wrenching and human and weird.
I love that we get to learn more about Roland's past. It's a great insight into what makes Roland tick.
Roland as always, but we finally get to meet Cuthbert and Allen, and they were excellent characters.
Ria. I think I would have hated her without narration, but the amount of depth he brings to her had me furious with the character. It was an excellent narration.
This book was a bit predictable in the middle with a love story very similar to a Romeo and Juliet story. It was nice to know Roland in a younger life and that he had a chance at love. It makes him more human. But the foreshadowing, it seemed to me not even a chance for Juliet in this story really messed it up for me. That's why I gave the story 3 stars.
Yes. I think the one aspect a novel looses upon rereading is the lack of urgency to know what will happen, But with Wizard and Glass we are truly in it for the journey because we have already seen the destination. We know what becomes of Susan and Roland but we don't know how or why. I could listen to the story of their love over and over.
Despite King's reluctance to write love stories I believe he truly captured the essence of young true love in Roland's story of Susan.
I particularly enjoyed how they justify the length of the story not matching up to the length of a Normal night.
The voices! My goodness he is a talented man. I can hardly imagine the story being told in any other voice! I hope to hear more of him throughout the rest of the series because it won't be the same in any other voice.
Well that is a very simple question, Oy!
Why? Well because I think there is more to him than meets the golden-ringed eye.
Although this novel was very slow in comparison to the others. I found it to be very rewarding. It has a tone about it that says this part of the story *must* be told in order to move on. I appreciate how King has staged this plethora of exposition on Roland character.
The story was well written although I would have liked it to him followed more closely the current state of events in the history and it was a sad excuse of the ticktockman in this novel

He is the best in the business.
You're kidding, right. It's 25 hours.
An avid reader that has run out of time to read and has turned to audiobooks to get his daily bookworm fed.
I loved the romantic side of the story, King rarely does romance let alone when both characters are still alive (aka Bag of Bones). King really portrays what its like to be young and in love.
Susan Delgado because I feel that she is one of the best female characters that King has written. She is both realistic and not over the top but still flawed so that we can all relate to her.
I have listened to the previous two Dark Tower book with Mullers narration and am currently listening to The Talisman which he narrates as well. Muller does an incredible job reading Kings books to the point that King called him "The man who understood the voices in my head."
Cuthbert would definitely make a great dinner companion, between his riddles and sarcastic comments it would definitely be an entertaining night.
